Sree Vinayaka Systems, incepted in 2002, is a Trivandrum (Kerala) based provider of imaging products and accessories. At the heart of Trivandrum city, the company has its well-equipped, state-of-the-art showroom-cum-refilling center and an office from where they carry out their operations. Led by P. Ramesh, CEO, the company deals in imaging consumables for the printers of leading brands like HP, Canon, Epson, Samsung and Brother, besides others. Sree Vinayaka Systems also does refilling for toner & inkjet cartridges in their in-house refilling center equipped with the best testing equipment and quality toner powders, inks and spares. Sree Vinayaka Systems has signed up as Canon Authorized Reseller (CAR) early this year (2019) for Canon printer machines (inkjet and laser) and Canon OEM consumables.
Ramesh comments, “Just after 5 months of signing up as Canon Authorized Reseller (CAR), we are selling nearly 100 Canon printer machines a month (inkjet 60% and laser 40%). On the color inkjet side Epson, HP and Canon machines are selling well compared to only a few color laser machines, but black laser printer machines are selling well. GST is turning out to be very good for us. Our printer sales have increased a lot in the last 2 years after the launch of GST, because most of the companies, private or government, now demand the bill with GST number. The GST law is a good initiative from the government to bring in transparency and order into the industry.”
Sree Vinayaka Systems has 50 well-connected dealers in Trivandrum and the surrounding areas. The company sells high quality inkjet & laser printers and cartridges for HP, Canon, Samsung and Brother branded machines (provides both OEM and compatibles cartridges). Sree Vinayaka Systems employs well-trained staff to handle their service and business operations.
Ramesh adds, “As for compatible cartridges, we are dealing in JetTec, Aryan and Alphabet brands; and for compatible toners, we are using ProDot and JetTec brands. In case of inkjet and ribbon cartridges we are using ProDot brand. For copiers, we sell only toner powders and do not sell copier machines. On the refilling side, we refill nearly 500 toner cartridges and 150 ink cartridges a month. As I said, we do color refilling more on inkjet side and less on laser side. We also remanufacture a small number of about 50 laser cartridges a month. Remanufactured cartridges offer near-OEM quality and page yield at a lesser cost. However, nowadays compatibles are selling well and refilling is decreasing, so we want to concentrate more on selling compatibles. We sell only standard compatible cartridges from big brands which give higher output.”
Sree Vinayaka Systems does remanufacturing and reconditioning of laser toner cartridges on a smaller scale, with training support from UniNet Imaging and Static Control. The other activities of Sree Vinayaka Systems include sale of HP cartridges, Epson inks, Brother inks and all leading brand original and compatible cartridges, Dot Matrix ribbons, sublimation inks, sublimation papers, glossy papers, power & data cables, antivirus software, mouse, keyboards, speakers, UPS and all types of toner cartridges spares.
“Quality products and services are our main selling points. Then we maintain good and long-term relations will all our customers. We use efficient and advanced methods while refilling cartridges and focus more on quality of products and services. We want to expand our business operations, focus more on selling Canon printer machines and increase our sales and revenues.”
