GreatAmerica Lands on Top in Cannata Survey Six out of Seven Years
2015 Record Rating Separates GreatAmerica from Survey Field
(Cedar Rapids, IA) – GreatAmerica Financial Services Corporation announced today that it topped the list of the CANNATA REPORT's 2015 Annual Dealer Survey for the sixth time in seven years, scoring an all-time high of any finance company with a 4.7 out of 5 rating. The report is the office equipment industry's longest-running independent dealer survey.
"GreatAmerica has set a new standard for excellence in our 30th Annual Dealer Survey," said Frank Cannata, Founder and Publisher of THE CANNATA REPORT. "Last year I thought they had reached the top with a 4.67 out of a possible 5.0 and said so. This year they came in at 4.70. Once again our congratulations to all the people at GreatAmerica who work so hard to achieve that kind of outstanding performance."
This year, over a third of the copier dealers surveyed reported one of four companies (GreatAmerica, U.S. Bank, De Lage Landen and Everbank) as their primary leasing partner. Of those who selected GreatAmerica as their primary leasing source, 79% rated it as "Excellent," surpassing the GreatAmerica previous year's score of 69%."
"We are excited and humbled to not only receive this positive rating from our dealers, but to surpass our previous record-breaking rating," said Jennie Fisher, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Office Equipment Group at GreatAmerica. "We recognize at GreatAmerica that our success hinges on the success and satisfaction of our dealers, which makes this honor extremely meaningful to us."
