That same year, Preferred Office Products expanded its operations by opening an additional office in Fayetteville to provide Northwest Arkansas with local sales and support.
In 2012 Preferred Office Products developed the Preferred Technology Group to highlight the shift and commitment into IT Services. This transition was pivotal in assisting our clients with the shift from information being managed primarily on paper to their information being managed digitally.
