(Topeka, Kansas, July 22, 2020)- We love this picture, because what a lot of people don’t know is that it shows off the work of Century Business Technologies behind the scenes! Do you see the wall monitor, the 2 digital whiteboards and even the podium? Well, a couple of years ago we sat down with the Kansas High School Athletics Association who needed technology and infrastructure in their facility that could be used throughout the building in a variety of configurations. Here’s what Russ Kromminga, Director of Business Development, had to say, “ This project helped KSHSAA implement interactive whiteboard technologies and remote collaboration tools that have enabled them to provide the level of services they need to assist school districts across the State, even during the COVID events. By combining multiple resources including the ability to remotely operate and control the systems through an iPad, Century and KSHSAA worked together to create a platform that helps them be better suited to service their clients. We make it easy.” Read more about the KSHSAA story here...

Century News Dynamic Duo: Century Business Technologies buys Dynamic Computer Solutions
9/27/2018 - Topeka Capital Journal | Topeka, KS Century Business Technologies has acquired Dynamic Computer Solutions, which will expand its business to add managed informational technology services. The two companies have been long-time associates, with the owners serving on multiple community boards and also utilizing each other’s products and services, said Mitch Miller, founder of Dynamic. And both have been in business for more than 30 years, an unusual situation, Miller said, when it is usually a well-established business buying a newer company.
“I’ve used their equipment for 15 years,” Miller said of copy machines at his company. “We’ve partnered together, with us taking care of their systems here and across the state for the last almost three years.” Dawna McCabe, president and CEO of Century, said the two companies are a natural fit.
Century, in business since 1981, began as a copier sales company and morphed over the years to add multiple lines of business, including a wider range of equipment, software packages that work on the equipment and also for document management and even an LED lighting division. “We’ve evolved to more of a consultative approach, where we go in and we’re not dealing most of the time with the purchasing manager,” she said. “It’s more of the C-level type people and trying to get a seat at their executive table, where we’re talking about their technology road map, what are their business goals, and where do they see technology and how it fits into their business. It’s then putting together that plan, whether it’s software, equipment or something custom, or something on the network side of things in the cloud.”
