While I was working in Group Services at TFG (The Foschini Group), I was tasked by the POPI team to make shredders available in our stores around the Country, to shred documents with sensitive and personal information once they had been used for the purpose they were required.
I proceeded with a process of inviting a number of different suppliers of shredding machines to present their products, together with after sales service options and pricing structures. We did however advise each supplier of our requirements with respect to the numbers and the sizes of machines that we deemed necessary to fulfil our objective.
After a number of meetings and demonstrations of the equipment available, we decided to go with the IDEAL Shredding machines supplied by the Maynards Group for a number of reasons. We felt that the product was of a high quality and robust, the pricing structure, although not the cheapest, was well priced, and the after sales service that they offered was conducive to our needs.
I have to say, now that we are a number of years down the line, I am convinced we made the correct decision, as the machines have lasted well, and where required, the service from Maynards to repair machines that have needed some attention has been excellent.
I have since retired from TFG, and am contracted with VIVA Formwork & Scaffolding, where again I was tasked to purchase a shredding machine for similar reasons. I had no hesitation in calling Maynards and asking them to give me a quotation on two of their IDEAL Machines. We have subsequently purchased one of these machines which is doing a great job.
I have no hesitation in recommending the IDEAL products from Maynards Office Technology when you are looking to purchase a shredding machine.
We have been using the Olympus Dictaphone APP now for a few months. As a busy medical practice of 12 consulting oncologists we cover a large area and do many away clinics. Having the APP on our phones has been a huge time saver for us as we are able to dictate letters/notes immediately without having to carry a Dictaphone with us and then wait for the letters to go through to the typist when we dock the Dictaphone. This means that urgent letters are sent to the typist immediately and this cuts down on the lead time for letters getting out.
We would very highly recommend the Olympus Dictaphone APP.
We have over the last couple of months come to know and use the Olympus Range of Products, and have found them to be of an exceptional high quality, easy to install and simple to use.
Due to our ever increasing work load, we need to work with and use products that will increase our efficiency when working against deadlines, and that are reliable under all working conditions.
As of yet, we have had no need to make use of the after sales support that is offered by the Olympus Team in Johannesburg, due to the products offering no problems. Our Transcription units and Voice Recorders are used on a daily basis and remain dependable.
The Johannesburg Team, are always available for quotations and Demos when these are requested by ourselves.
We would highly recommend the Olympus Product Range.
Maynards provides a fast and professional service as well as ongoing support.
The Olympus dictation and transcription products are user friendly and can be operated with very basic computer skills.
The transcription pedal works well and can be adjusted on the corresponding software to suit the users playback needs.
The transcription headphones are comfortable for all day typing and provide good quality audio.
I have been dealing with Maynards for at least 10 years, purchasing Olympus products, and have always found them to be 100% professional, knowledgeable about their product and easy to contact, and receive, technical advice.
I would thoroughly recommend Maynards, and particularly their Olympus products, for any recording equipment.
