You may have considered it when shopping for a new computer, cell phone or smart watch, but is it really worth the cost savings to purchased used technology? We joined the Guy Phillips gang at KTRS for Tech Talk last week to chat about the right way to purchase used equipment to maximize your investment.

While it may not be the most glamorous title to win, it does come with a few really great perks! For the past two months, SumnerOne has been searching the Kansas City area for “the worst” copier. In total, we heard from 28 organizations begging for the chance to not only win a brand new Canon MFP but the chance to celebrate their win by dropping their old hunk of junk from a 110 ft. tall crane at Union Station. In addition, SumnerOne will provide service and supplies for two years at no cost eliminating at least one headache for our lucky winner.

In Case You Missed Us: VoIP on Tech Talk with KTRS

Posted by Carrie Grimsley on Jun 14, 2018 9:00:00 AM
This week on Tech Talk with the Guy Phillips Show, we got the low down on Voice over IP or VoIP from SumnerOne’s very own Chadd Haselhorst. If you've never heard of VoIP, it's a phone system housed in "the cloud." In English, VoIP calls travel over your data lines rather than old-fashioned phone lines. Rather than having your voice travel over traditional phone cables, your calls are routed through the ever-present data “cloud.”

 All right…admit it. Who hasn’t wanted to go all Office Space on a misbehaving copier once or twice in their professional career? We’ve heard the desperation in peoples’ voices as they call our office begging for help with one of those rogue printers that showed up on someone’s desk and randomly decides to spew madness. So we thought we’d have a little fun with the idea and kick it up a notch in our Kansas City office while doing a bit of good for our local community with our 2nd Annual Worst Copier in KC event. Our aim was twofold: raise some serious cash for BIGGSteps for Cancer Prevention & replace KC's worst copier with a new Canon MFP valued at $10,000 plus 2 full years of copies and service at a local business in desperate need of a new copier.
