At Thermocopy, we are committed to providing our clients with a level of excellence in customer service and support that is unmatched by any of our competitors. We strive to make every customer a “Raving Fan.” On this page, you can read a sampling of the many messages we receive each week from our customers who have reached out to us with their feedback. We’d love to hear from you with any comments, suggestions, or questions you may have.
You had recommended that we might want to look into networking, and, at your recommendation, we did. Along the way to being up and running, we realized that additional help would be needed to make our computers talk to each other. Enter—Jacob Allen! Jacob not only performed his magic on the hardware, but he stayed around to help with the Quickbooks installation and setup that was performed remote. He jumped right in to speak with the Quickbooks technician and saw “cracks” that needed to be sealed to facilitate a smooth transition to this new office practice. I’m sure my office staff could have eventually gotten the process completed, but what a pleasure and a blessing it was for Jacob to intercede on our behalf. Jacob is competent, professional, and reflects extremely well on your company. Please tell him we are very appreciative for his expertise and going above and beyond.

I wanted to send you a thank you for the service I have been receiving from Thermocopy. I would like to especially commend Ms. Tammy Cobb for the job she has done for me here at Milligan. We had some issues to address and she got on them quickly and called me to see what I needed with copier supplies and service. She got me setup with the online ordering system and I receive an email from her on every order placed. She is a mold for customer service. It has been a pleasure doing business with your company through her. So a big Thank You.
I just wanted to inform you about the service we got from Bryan Layman, the technician who came to our office this morning to assist us with our printer. He was polite, articulate, friendly and knowledgeable. Bryan stayed until the job was complete and I understood exactly what he had done. He had a work order explaining it all for our records, and even offered his knowledge when a fellow officemate had concerns about her email service being interrupted. Please know that Bryan is doing a fantastic job.

The copier was delivered as promised. The delivery personnel were prompt, knowledgeable and courteous. They were prepared with the appropriate equipment and had been informed about picking up the old copiers. The gentleman that performed the setup and install was the best. He knew his task well and was extremely learned about your products. This has been a refreshing experience, from the first call to the installation. Thank you very much for your professional and courteous help.

I wanted to take a moment to say that I appreciate the tech who came out to work on my copier recently (I appreciate them all, really!) But this one, Bryan Layman, was absolutely wonderful. Not only did he do the job of fixing the broken part, but he took the time to clean the entire machine simply because it needed it, and tested other features in case there were other issues that might need to be fixed while he was here. He did it all with great personality and tremendous pride in his work and the company. He sang the praises of the leadership of the company and is so delighted to work for your organization. I’ve always appreciated your generosity with Interfaith, but his work is a pure demonstration of it. Thank you!

I wanted to take a minute to thank you [Teri Glinisty], Pete Moen and Miles Costello for the outstanding service I received during our 12 new copier/printers install event. You strive to make your customers happy and to make sure everything is “just so.” I appreciate that, and trust your word that things will happen as you say they will when we need something from your company. Miles is very serious about his work and pays attention to detail. I don’t imagine that he forgets anything! He had all the paperwork in the exact order and had copies made for me for my files. He’s a hard worker, I like that! Pete was a joy to be around. He is extremely knowledgeable about the products, and also about the networking issues that we ran into here. He was always patient and kind. Pete is an asset to Thermocopy and also to us as a service contact. So thanks to all three of you! I look forward to a long partnership with Thermocopy!

Just wanted to say thank you for having such good people working for your company. Mr. [Stan] Irwin really put forth some genuine effort in solving our copier issues today. He is always extremely professional but also very friendly and polite. You don’t find those qualities very often in this day and age. It was a pleasure having him here today. Please tell him thank you again from all of us in the service department. We certainly appreciate his efforts!

Our service technician, Mark Payne, began investigating a problem related to an error code on our copier. When he arrived at our office, the code had cleared and the Ricoh appeared to be working correctly. Mark took the initiative to troubleshoot the problem, even though the problem seemed solved. He replaced a Dev unit and performed some other routine checks. During this process, the problem returned, but this time the problem would not clear. Mark dug deeper into troubleshooting and tried to solve the problem onsite, but then Mark decided that he needed to return to the warehouse for additional parts. Mark said he would be back. Quite some time passed and we began to suspect that Mark had done something, anything, to avoid coming back to finish the job from h—! He returned with more parts and a smile on his face. He explained that he had removed parts from a unit in the warehouse and that had taken some additional time. Mark installed the new parts and the error code disappeared (for good). Mark then reassembled the copier, performed some additional routine maintenance to get our copier ready for the coming summer months when the humidity rises and causes us problems. Mark could have swept the dust off of the copier and gone on his way when the error code initially cleared itself. Instead, he made sure that the problem was fixed and fixed right. I appreciate his dedication and work ethic and wanted you and Thermocopy to be aware of his commitment.
ACES Systems, Knoxville
I would like to take a moment to express my gratitude and satisfaction for the service SES’ family of companies receives from Thermocopy. Jane [Haney] is an incredible account manager who continually brings ideas and solutions to our company. She has identified many areas in which the products and services offered by Thermocopy can increase our productivity and cut our administrative costs. She has not only gained, but also maintained, the trust of my company and has proven that Thermocopy is indeed the best choice for SES. John Dech is the other Thermocopy employee that I’d like to single out because of his extraordinary customer service. He is reliable and trustworthy, and has displayed his devotion to both Thermocopy and SES. I can count on John to get in and out with minimal interruption and to take care of any maintenance issue we have with any piece of equipment we have! I also give kudos to Joe Krauss and Todd Sheppard for their hard work and am pleased to have them as a resource. I couldn’t be more pleased with “my Thermocopy team.”
Project Controls Manager, SpecPro Environmental Services LLC
The level of service we receive from Thermocopy has always exceeded my expectations. Every one of the techs that have been here have always conducted themselves in a very professional manner. They are quick to diagnose the problem and make sure the problem is resolved before leaving our site. Even if I call for phone support, I usually have a return call in less than 15 minutes. It is a pleasure working with people like Jake Allen, Jane Haney and Michelle Lovett. Thanks for the great service we receive from the Thermocopy team.
IT Administrator, Vinylex Corporation
I would like to let you know what a valuable employee you have in Stan Irwin. Stan was the first Service Technician we had when we purchased our first copier from Thermocopy. He has always been very cooperative, patient and informative with us and those qualities really mean a lot in today’s business world. He knows what our shift changes mean for paperwork that has to be copied before the team leaders can leave for the day and always works around that when he can. He is our favorite Service Technician. Not that your other techs aren’t good, they just aren’t Stan. We look forward to working with Thermocopy and Stan for many years to come.

There was a problem with the Ricoh Aficio MP5210 printer/copier scanner feature this afternoon that had to do with “authentication.” I called Thermocopy through whom we lease the unit and with whom we have a service agreement. Using the Supportworks program, Jonathan [Strader] was able to remotely correct the problem, and now we are back in business. Jonathan couldn’t have been more pleasant to work with, and he corrected the problem in no time. If you have experienced problems (and I had not until this afternoon)…it appears that Supportworks really works! I am so glad we have Thermocopy to support MS Technology.

We just wanted to thank you again for the new copier. It has made all our jobs easier. Floyd, you are just too good at your job! Thanks again!
Tallent Title Group, Inc.
I just wanted to leave a comment to say thank you. Your technician, Rick Newberry, came to work on two of our fax machines and did a wonderful job on fixing both of them. One of them needed new parts, so he made phone calls to secure the part, went and picked up the parts and came right back—he did not leave me stranded without my fax machine. He even cleaned up and put everything back in place. I think Rick went above the call to make sure we were up and running again. Thank you for your service—it makes our job a little easier when our office equipment is in top working order.

I would just like to comment on the wonderful performance of our service technician Mark Payne. I am always truly impressed with the level of professionalism demonstrated by Mr. Payne and how technically skilled he obviously is. He is always timely, responsive to our questions, and very friendly and engaging in his demeanor. His approach to his work and his customers should serve as a model to his peers and his representation of your organization should absolutely be recognized as best practice. We at Peninsula Village are genuinely pleased to have Mr. Payne support us in meeting this necessary and vital function of our everyday business operations.
In my book, Greg Hubbard is Thermocopy’s Employee of the Year. If we have a problem, he is here promptly and there is always a smile on his face and a spring in his step. He exudes a professional and courteous attitude. He is knowledgeable, efficient — just impeccable. We looked at the service side when we were shopping for copiers and it was really simple. Greg Hubbard and Thermocopy. Great people deserve the best and he is definitely one of them. I would also like to thank Lloyd Evans, Tony Walker, Chris Sizemore, and Jonathan Strader. From Sales to Service, I am very pleased with our decision.

I wanted to take the time to write you today to tell you how much we appreciate Brian Durham’s help each time he comes out to service our copiers. He is and has always been courteous, helpful and knowledgeable of the office equipment he services for us.

The services provided have been absolutely wonderful. Jane Haney is fantastic in responding to our needs. I would like to comment on how professional the Thermocopy technicians are that service our printers—they always go beyond the problem to service any other issues they may see. What a great group of people you are!
Architectural Graphics, Inc
I just wanted to say thank you for sending Mark Payne out to our facility to service our Ricoh copier. Mr. Payne answers the majority of our service calls and is always cheerful, courteous and well mannered but most of all he is knowledgeable. He is always able to find our problem, correct it and communicates with us quite well as to what he has done.

I wanted to let you know how pleased we are with John Dech’s service on our copiers. He is a good listener and seems to know just what is wrong when we tell him what has been going on. He is always pleasant and very customer-oriented.

My experience with Thermocopy has been all positive. Working with Phillip Graves is always a pleasure…he’s knowledgeable and such a class act. Phillip and I go back a long way—at least three years, which is another plus about Thermocopy—your folks stay with you, so it is possible to develop a working relationship with them. Your equipment works great, and when there is a glitch, you come through with the service necessary to correct the problem and always in a timely fashion.
MS Technology, Inc.
It has been a pleasure over the past several years to have Thermocopy supplying our copier needs and related services. One of the highlights in working with Thermocopy has been our account representative, who has gone above the ordinary call of duty in supplying quality service to my law firm and title agency. Thank you again for the good service that Thermocopy has provided to us.

I just wanted to let you know about the exceptional service that we have received from Curtis Carter. We have recently purchased a new printer from you that will be delivered on Monday. In the meantime, our printer (that was from another company) stopped working. Curtis was able to get us up and running in no time. You have a great asset in him and we look forward to working with him and Thermocopy in the future!
CL Butcher Insurance Agency, Knoxville
I just wanted to let you know how easy it was to work with Curtis Carter. He helped me get my Mac connected to our printer here at our office. Curtis made it a quick, pleasant experience for someone who is not very computer savvy! He’s great with customer service, thanks!
Realty Executives Associates
I just wanted to comment on the help that Curtis Carter gave me regarding some programing with the printer. He was so very helpful and made sure that the outcome was exactly what I wanted. He researched what I needed and even emailed me the steps after we went through the set up together. I wish the support from all our vendors was as helpful. Thanks again!
Anderson County EMS
I called for service this morning on one of our copiers (the waste toner bottle was full). John Dech arrived in the early afternoon to empty the bottle and discovered two other things wrong with the copier. He was able to find the parts needed and had the copier operational again by 1:30 p.m. John is always great to explain what is wrong and what he did to fix or repair the problem. I know when he comes to service one of our copiers, 99% of the time, he’s going to be able to find the problem and get us operational again in a timely manner. John is always friendly, courteous and professional… we have developed a good rapport over the years.
Willow Brook Elementary School
Recently our organization changed vendors to Thermocopy. I wanted to let you know what an exceptionally wonderful experience it has been to work with Jamie Thomas. From the first day that he introduced himself and showed interest in our needs, he has consistently been polite, professional, available and prompt to reply to any questions, etc. I also must say that he has worked very hard to find the right product, the best pricing and the best lease terms to suit our needs as a non-profit. I have appreciated his patience with us taking a bit of time to reach our decisions, but have also greatly appreciated his consistently (but not harassingly) checking in with us. He is very educated in the products and services offered by Thermocopy. Lastly, there is one thing that has really made working with him so pleasing and unique and that is how grateful and appreciative he has been to earn our business.

I am singing the praises of your technical support folks again today! One call for service, they called me right back within the hour and remotely fixed the two issues I had in less than 10 minutes on the phone. Curtis Carter was kind, professional, courteous, patient, helpful and funny… best customer service on the planet!
The Law Office of Attorney Drew McElroy, Knoxville
…and more feedback from Ms. Setser on another super-fast call:
I have to share this with you. Drew had a deadline to get a large document filed electronically in a Federal Court case of end of business on Friday. Just as the document was complete and ready to be scanned and uploaded (about 50 pages with color photos included), I realized the document feeder on the Ricoh was not working. After trying to clear whatever might be in the pathway, I called Thermocopy for emergency service. I spoke with Laura Crass at 2:40pm and explained my emergency. She called me back at 2:47 to let me know a technician was en route. Dennis McAdams came through the door at 3:00pm and by 3:03, had me up and running! While it was just a large paperclip in the pathway, I could not see any part of it and could not have cleared it myself. I will say it again… you all have the best customer service on the planet!! Serious props to both Laura and Dennis! Thank you so much!
The Law Office of Attorney Drew McElroy, Knoxville
I just wanted to let you know how smooth the transition was for us when your techs came and installed our new Ricoh printer. I happened to be busy with two other technology issues here—our entire phone system and our banking desktop—but all I had to do was give them a few concerns with certain users and they took it from there. Trust me, this is not the norm for us. I am not used to someone else doing the tweaking but I am very grateful to Pete Bowen who stayed and helped finalize the drivers for the most critical users and then worked with me to ensure I could setup the rest. Pete and Peter [Moen] are very witty—I personally enjoyed their humor and like the way they seem like they have always been a part of our team. What a great experience!
Holston Glass Co., Inc.
I wanted to let you know how much we appreciate Mark Payne. He is always extremely professional and goes “above and beyond” whenever we have a copier service call. I’m sure you recognize his proficiencies and can-do attitude but I wanted you to know we recognize those traits as well.

Jane Haney has been one of the most positive, pleasant business people with whom I’ve had the good fortunes to work. Jane is very knowledgeable and professional. She has always been eager to work with the credit union no matter the problems or situations confronting us. Since the beginning of our relationship, the credit union has had many questions involving lease, purchase, equipment, competitors and leasing company situations. Jane managed to tactfully and professionally help us with each incident. I don’t recall any situation where a credit union staff member was not pleased with Jane’s answers, performance or service. Through the years she has also been very faithful, understanding and gracious when answering any questions and providing all of the information I’ve needed. She has been my educator and guide in the copier business. I would like to commend all of her skills. She has proven to be a person I, or any credit union staff member here, has been able to depend on as our business documents advisor. In my opinion, having Jane as our Thermocopy representative has proven to be a win-win situation for Thermocopy and ORNL Federal Credit Union. I’m thankful she was persistent!

I just want to say what a pleasure it was to work with our service tech yesterday on the installation of our new multifunctional equipment. The transition from our old copier to the new equipment went so smoothly that our work here in the office went uninterrupted. The training he provided to me and my employees after installation was very clear and concise. Thank you for the wonderful customer service your company provided yesterday and extend my thanks again!
Plant Manager, Trinity Industries, Inc.
Todd McAllister came to fix our Ricoh printer and did a wonderful job. He called and updated me about what was going on and where the part we needed was at all times. He was very professional and extremely nice. He even went above and beyond by not only fixing the motor problem, but getting a few other parts for us that had some wear and tear. It was a pleasure having him in the office and I hope to have him service our office equipment again should we need it.
I just wanted to say how much we appreciate the service that Brian Durham provides to my branch here at ORNL Federal Credit Union. He reminds us what it means to give excellent service. He has always been friendly, courteous, and efficient—he treats us like family. What a pleasure it is to have him in my branch.

CASA of Northeast Tennessee is a small nonprofit that advocates for the abused and neglected children in our area. As with any nonprofit, resources are scarce and new equipment is difficult to come by. Our 14+ year old printer was on its last leg, making our jobs that much more difficult. We knew something needed to be done. We reached out to Steve Sumner and Mark DeNicola for a possible copier donation to our organization. Very quickly, we were given a response that a newer copier would be coming our way. Words can’t describe how thankful we are to have such wonderful community support from Thermocopy. When we needed help, they were there to save the day. Not only did they provide us with a great copier, they have given us unparalleled customer service. It takes a strong community for nonprofits such as ours to be successful, but with help from people like Steve and Mark we are able to continue making a positive impact in the lives of the children we serve. Thank you Thermocopy for more than just a generous donation, thank you for believing in what we do.

I am the Reservations Supervisor at the Park Vista Hotel. We had a toner crisis earlier today. The toner in our fax machine went belly-up suddenly. Our fax machine is a life-line for our department. We have tons of internet bookings from channels such as Hotels.com, Hotwire.com, etc. The reservations come through to our fax machine and must be manually entered into the hotel system. As you can imagine, it will really keep us hopping on a busy, holiday weekend. I called to explain my desperate situation and the Thermocopy representative who took my call sprang into action. She went above and beyond the normal service call and helped us track down a toner cartridge that we could pick up immediately rather than having to wait until Monday for delivery. She was my saving grace! I definitely feel that she had genuine concern for my dilemma and went out of her way to help me. This is a true inspiration to those of us that work in the customer service world…knowing that we can truly make a difference when putting forth an extra effort.
Reservations Supervisor, Park Vista Hotel
We are so pleased with our new copier purchase and installation from Thermocopy! We had a very positive experience with each step of our new equipment purchase. Matthew Coleman and Paige Dean worked very hard to get us the equipment that we needed at a good price. They ensured that we got our device very quickly, which was wonderful since our old machine was hanging on by a thread! Once the equipment arrived, Tony Walker came out to install and he was FANTASTIC! He took our old set up that was a mess and streamlined the whole process for us. Tony was able to do in just a few hours, what other companies couldn’t do for us in four days! He set up the machine exactly how I requested it and I felt very confident using it after his training. Then Matt and Paige came back for additional training for our office—above and beyond!! I’ve even been impressed with the technical support line, as I called in to get a setting changed on our machine and they had me fixed in under 5 minutes! I would highly recommend the Thermocopy team to anyone looking to purchase a new piece of office equipment.
Office Manager, Slyman Real Estate
This note is regarding the Ricoh Postscript color setting issues your technician and I talked about yesterday. Tony Walker figured out something the Ricoh representative did not. Allowing me to use the profiles from my program makes a major difference in the color output of my Adobe InDesign projects. I have experimented with a few different profiles which have brought the color output reasonably close to my swatch books. My thanks to Tony for taking the time to work with me, he’s a great asset to Thermocopy.

I just wanted to send a note to you to tell you how much we appreciated the prompt response and the assistance to our business from Thermocopy. Our computers had been down for the third day and we had not heard back from our computer company to that point. Jacob Allen quickly returned our service call to discuss the problems and came out right away. He rapidly assessed and corrected our problems and got us back up and running! Jake was professional and friendly, and also explained things in a manner that I could understand. Jake and Todd Sheppard came by today to discuss our future service agreement. Todd was very helpful and knowledgeable and I look forward to having Thermocopy helping us with our IT needs.

I wanted to let you know that I had a wonderful experience last Friday. I was having trouble with our scanner/copier and Jacob Allen was very quick to contact me and help me with the problem. He was very nice and helpful. He really made our day and fixed our scanner. I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful employee you have. Thanks so much!
We had a great experience with Jacob Allen yesterday. You all have the best customer service in the land and Jacob really shines. He’s professional, personable, and knowledgeable. He does your company proud and we appreciate him and we just wanted you to know it. Thanks!

I just wanted to take a minute to say that is always a pleasure to have Mark Payne come by when we have a service call. He is very prompt in responding to our calls and he is always very polite and extremely helpful no matter what we are needing. His customer service and his attitude are always extraordinary. You are very blessed to have an employee who is so dedicated to his job and to helping others. Thanks to all of you for all of your hard work.

I would like to thank Thermocopy for the five years of excellent service on our copier. The service techs are always knowledgeable and personable, as well as exhibiting a professional posture throughout the service visits. They are always helpful and informative whenever asked about the problems we are experiencing.
Sunshine Playschool, Oak Ridge
I just wanted to let you know how much we liked the tech that came to service our copier. He was not only pleasant but went out of his way to make sure that we all knew how to use the copier, and he taught us some tips to keep it from jamming. In the past, other places where I’ve worked used Thermocopy. I have to say he is the nicest representative I have met from your company—everyone is great, I have never run into a bad rep from your company—but this young man was very personable.
Staci C. Bowling
I want to thank Jane Haney for her innovative ideas and top notch support of our company. Over the years she has continued to look for ways to make our operations more effective and cost competetive— arranging statewide support and following through on every issue. Great job Jane…great job Thermocopy.
Mortgage Investors Group
We have many systems at our Cross Park office, but our large mailroom copier is essential for our daily operation. It is fast and has the finishing capabilities that we rely on everyday. When it went down, our staff quickly reached desperation stage. This was a very busy time for us and Thermocopy brought in another copier on loan. That helped. I know that was added expense for Thermocopy but was essential for us to function. Although the manufacturer was an obstacle in our ability to recover (the parts were delayed, and then they were wrong), Mark Payne was a trooper. Some of the specific details of that week are hazy at this point but I do know Mark’s attention and actions got us up and running when the manufacturer goofed. It took a week to get the right parts for our copier and Mark installed them promptly and stayed with us till we were comfortable. It’s almost like his intuition told him to stay with us for a bit. The system went down again and thank goodness Mark was still on hand and repaired the problem in short order. Mark seems so dedicated and genuinely cares about the customer. I am grateful that he was the technician who walked us through this rough time. While I’m sure all your technicians can install parts, Mark’s demeanor and expertise was very reassuring. Don’t get me wrong—all your staff are good to work with—but in this particular instance, Mark excelled! And I can’t end this before I mention Jane Haney. Wow! She never lets us down. During this downtime we had a complicated Board mailout that had to be completed. She stepped in and carried it to Thermocopy to print. It is wonderful to know we can count on Thermocopy!

Thank you for providing great tech support on your products. It was a pleasure to work with Curtis [Carter] today. He was kind, patient, professional, and solved the problem with the scanner communicating with my computer. Thanks to all for a job well done.
