Computing Center wins Cornell Supplier Recognition Award

The Computing Center has been recognized with a Cornell University Top Performer Supplier Recognition Award for 2015. The awards were presented to Becky Martin and Mary Stazi at the Supplier Recognition Event hosted by Cornell Procurement Services in June.

This is the fourth year that Cornell has made awards to its top performing suppliers and the third year in a row that Computing Center has won a Top Performer Award. These awards recognize the companies that have consistently performed best in product and service quality, pricing, order fulfillment, customer satisfaction, and social responsibility. Cornell campus customers are invited to evaluate supplier performance through a customer satisfaction survey. Cornell is one of the first universities to recognize suppliers in this way. 

The Computing Center has been a local supplier to Cornell since 1980.  In addition to many products and services we provide to Cornell, The Computing Center is the primary supplier to the University for computer printer toners and inks. Since 2012, we have annually procured, managed, delivered, and helped recycle over 10,000 printer toners and ink cartridges to the University. 

Entrepreneurship in Ithaca -- Competing with Silicon Valley

It's been a good month for Ithaca in the national press.  Lots of articles about our community.  The one that caught our eye is a story from CNN Money entitled "Can Ithaca, NY compete with Silicon Valley?"  cnnmon.ie/1C1wE4o  

Although the obvious answer appears to be "No", the reality is that good ideas and great companies can happen nearly anywhere. So why not here?  For decades, startups of all kinds have begun in Ithaca.  Inventions out of Cornell and from the minds of local entreprenuers have created companies that have thrived in our community.

 Cornell University Top Performer Supplier Recognition Award

The Computing Center has been recognized with a Cornell University Top Performer Supplier Recognition Award for 2014. The awards were presented to Becky Martin and Mary Stazi at the Supplier Recognition Event hosted by Cornell Procurement Services on June 11, 2014.

This is the third year that Cornell has made awards to its top performing suppliers. The awards recognize the companies that have consistently performed best in product and service quality, pricing, order fulfillment, customer satisfaction, and social responsibility. Cornell campus customers are invited to evaluate supplier performance through a customer satisfaction survey. Cornell is one of the first universities to recognize suppliers in this way. 

The Computing Center has been a local supplier to Cornell for most of our history going back over thirty three years. In addition to many products and services we provide to Cornell, The Computing Center is the primary supplier to the University for computer printer toners and inks. Since 2012, we have annually procured, managed and delivered over 10,000 printer toners and ink cartridges to the University. 

Myths regarding the use of refilled toner cartridges

There is a lot of debate surrounding the myths and facts regarding the use of refilled and remanufactured or non-OEM (original equipment manufacturer) toner cartidges. While most of our clients use HP, Xerox, and other OEM toners, some use compatible cartridges very successfully, while others have had significant issues using them.  

On the surface refilled or remanufactured print cartridges at lower price points might seem like a cheap alternative to the use of OEM print cartridges. But in the long run, they may end up costing more. From Hewlett Packard's perspective, here are four common myths surrounding remanufactured print cartridges, and then decide for yourself which is the better bargain.

Myth #1: Refilled or remanufactured cartridges save money

Fact: While it’s true that the initial purchase price may be less, unreliable cartridges can waste supplies because many may quit working, stranding toner in the cartridge. "Bargain"0910_SMB_fturl_Tonercartridgefamily315299356122.1665  cartridges may produce lower quality prints: smudging, streaking and ghosting are not uncommon. This may force reprinting or replacing cartridges, causing a drain on productivity and creating hidden costs that add up.

In fact, non-HP LaserJet cartridge(s) can cost more than double the price of an Original HP LaserJet print cartridge. When you take into account the extra costs associated with inferior reliability and being forced to reprint poor-quality pages, it’s easy to see how Original HP LaserJet print cartridges can lower your total cost of printing.
