AN INDUSTRY BREAKTHROUGH
Founded in 1977, Golden Pacific Systems, Inc. quickly established itself as a leader in Print Management solutions. Golden Pacific's motto was simple: Give Us Challenges and We Will Provide Solutions. As the years passed, the company gradually developed a larger product mix in an effort to become a true one-stop shop for local businesses. They also had the foresight to embrace technology early on as a strategic business opportunity.
As the experts in the business solutions industry for over 30 years, Golden Pacific entered the internet age with a goal of using new technologies to better serve their clients. The company assembled a group of creative, forward-thinking individuals, and the team, led by Jon Sooy, was able to evolve company software and perfect an on-line ordering system previously unknown in the industry. Coupled with Golden Pacific’s vast knowledge base and its reputation for exceptional customer service, these customized tools were welcomed by clients who quickly came to appreciate their time- and cost-saving benefits.
As they one by one began to convert to the new system, customers experienced unbelievable productivity and results, enabling each one to save tens of thousands of dollars annually. The GPnet™ brand was born and it began to explode in the marketplace. Golden Pacific’s sales escalated – ultimately quadrupling overall – as it became clear that the creative business solutions our team developed have forever changed the way businesses do business.
Our industry will never be the same, and we are honored to lead the way in its expansion.
