Meritech has been a leader in our industry for years and one of the forebearers of the philosophy of total document solutions.
In 2013, using companies like Meritech as its template, Kyocera renewed their commitment to their customers by introducing “Total Document Solutions” endorsement. This series of training courses ensures that dealers with the TDS level of certification have set themselves apart from the competition as an elite level dealership that is prepared to handle the challenges of today’s technology in all office environments.

Kyocera president and CEO, Nori Ina, made it clear that Kyocera views its mission as a joint undertaking between the company and its independent dealers. “Kyocera is 100% committed to being a dealer-centric company,” he said when addressing the dealers. “We understand that you need a complete solution for your customers’ needs. Our goal is to continue to expand our company’s core competencies, combined with your unique capabilities, and together we will be able to provide your customers with a complete, 360-degree resolution to their business challenges.”
Mr. Ina’s pledge was validated by a number of Kyocera’s dealer-oriented initiatives, most notably its Certified Total Document Solutions (TDS) Provider Program; a training agenda that educates dealers and their sales, pre-sales and post-sales teams, via online training courses, webinars and instructor-led classes. The comprehensive set of training modules provides dealers with a complete understanding of Kyocera’s technology—along with the latest skills they can use to resolve customer business challenges.

We look throughout our community and evaluate areas in need of support. we researched charities and verify that every dollar donated goes straight to the cause. Charities supported are local and within the immediate community.

We are deeply saddened by the loss of Rosie Cencer. She was a part of the Meritech family from August 1983 to June 2003. Known as the Hug Lady, Rosie, a cancer survivor herself, made sure no one left the Susan G. Komen 3-Day without a hug.
Rosie worked in dispatch for many years at Meritech and was always the “worried Mother” to all! She was the sweetest, caring, non-selfish giver you could ever meet and was an integral part of the Meritech team.
She certainly left a legacy of love, light, and lots of hugs behind her. Our sincerest condolences go out to Rosie’s family and loved ones.
