Firms like these outfit your office with supplies and equipment for day to day functioning. Though not as critical as workstations or job related equipment, outsourcing maintenance and supplies saves companies time and money through a one-stop-shop for all their needs.
One should not take this lightly because it can become very infuriating when you do not have the supplies you need to meet a deadline. This is often overlooked and can attribute to a lot of wasted time in the long run.
