Case Study

Rocky Mountain Equipment (RME) operates as an independent, multi-branch equipment dealership consisting of more than 35 construction and agricultural equipment dealership branches located across Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Renowned equipment manufacturers such as Case, New Holland and Kawasaki headline their trusted brands.

RME’s contracted print supplier was not meeting expectations. Poor communication and unreliable deliveries to their outlying locations prompted RME to search the market for a new print management solution.

Westkey stepped up and demonstrated a thorough understanding of the issues. Read more below to learn how our customer focus quickly turned the situation around.
