In this industry, the normal IT budget is usually about 3.7 percent of sales. Our budget is probably about 1.8 percent.

We’ve had compliments from other people in the building products industry on our technology. For us being based in South Dakota, our technology is probably much more advanced than that of people in bigger markets.

Cas Rangel Chief Information Officer Building Products, Inc.

So many companies in technology today have taken the human relationship side out of taking care of their customers. Scantron has never done that and has stuck with their core ethical values. Thus, from following those ideals they have retained us as a customer. I would strongly recommend them.


Paul Howard Vice President Sparr Building and Farm Supply

We’re probably up nine or ten percent this year, compared to last year. And, of course, there are myriad reasons for that, but I have to give credit for at least part of it to our  new efficiencies and the support we’ve gotten in implementing them.

Bill Wommack General Manager Peoples Supply Company

Scantron gives us the freedom and peace of mind to focus on our business rather than having to worry or troubleshoot time-consuming and frustrating IT problems.

Christine Dain N. Dain’s Sons Company

Scantron responds very quickly to any issues that may occur. The service has been spot on to what we were looking for in an IT partner.
