Of the check total, $100,000 was for the new Infusion & Dialysis Center and $54,750 represented sponsorships for the Connecticut Children’s Gala and the Geno Auriemma “Fore the Kids” Charity Golf Tournament—part of CBS’s extensive community support.

If you pick any office in Greater Hartford, the odds are pretty high that you’ll find a copier, printer, or other piece of equipment provided by and serviced by Connecticut Business Systems (CBS). Along with the equipment and services it provides, you will also find a business that is committed to the communities it serves.

Indeed, one of the hallmarks of Connecticut Business Systems is its community support. CBS regularly make donations to local nonprofit organizations, including Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. And this year they took that commitment to a higher level, donating $100,000 to support the new Infusion & Dialysis Center.

“CBS is proud to support Connecticut Children’s Medical Center and their vision for the new Infusion & Dialysis Center,” said Jay Cartisano, president of Connecticut Business Systems. “The work that the great folks at Connecticut Children’s do impacts the lives of so many families, and I cannot think of a worthier cause than one that helps the children of our community.”

Leaders on the Cutting Edge

A Xerox company, CBS has been keeping businesses running in Connecticut, New York, western Massachusetts and Rhode Island for more for 32 years. CBS bases its approach on a complete understanding of each client’s business, then providing customized solutions for the client’s needs—what they called the 360-degree Assessment. By using such a comprehensive, data-driven model, they can be sure that each business is using the most efficient and cost-effective solution possible.

With the ever-more-sophisticated technology being used in printers, copiers and other business machines, service is crucial, and CBS puts a lot of emphasis on training their customer service representatives. That also means understanding a wide range of industries. CBS serves government, healthcare, education, creative, financial, legal, small-business, nonprofit and manufacturing companies, each of which has different needs, priorities and constraints.

Why We Give

Just as CBS understands a wide range of industries, it also understands the wide range of needs, including the need for a new Infusion & Dialysis Center at Connecticut Children’s.

“The opportunity to help support the Infusion & Dialysis Center is one we felt was very important,” said Cartisano. “It will provide a much more comfortable environment for patients to receive treatment and will help improve the overall care.”

Copy that.
