They currently accomplish this by way of extensive social media interaction and most recently through the use of LiveChat software. Offering over 35,000 products in addition to providing the best customer service has separated SupplyGeeks from the pack. Taking their commitment to customer service and interaction one step further, the SupplyGeeks have integrated a brand new in-depth blog to their e-commerce site.

From the start we wanted to have a different and special relationship with our customers, said Director of E-Commerce Eric Houtkooper. Our new blog gives us a unique opportunity to interact with our customers beyond just a sale like most other stores. The SupplyGeeks blog is the perfect place to show our expertise and at the same time, make work a little more fun. That is something everyone can relate to.

The new blog offers unique elements to engage and empower customers that are hard to match. Original articles will include product spotlights, reviews, buying guides, contests, and more.

Our blog will be the place to go for showing off the newest and coolest supplies one day, how-to choose a business travel bag another day, or maybe 5 ways to be a more positive person another day, said Matt Jones.
