Advanced Business Imaging Brings Business Expertise to RA

(July 13, 2015 – Ottawa, ON)


Advanced Business Imaging (ABI), a local company, has established a new relationship with the Recreation Association of the Public Service of Canada (commonly known as the RA) by offering their technical expertise and equipment experience to assist in the “Because of Me” Revitalization Campaign. The relationship with the RA includes the refurbishment of the RA Boardroom into the new ABI Conference Room. Further, the partnership also includes the installation of new business imaging systems throughout the RA service groups to help the RA better manage document reproduction.


“We are grateful for the support from a local company the calibre of Advanced Business Imaging,” shared Chief Executive Officer Tosha Rhodenizer, “The re-design of the ABI Conference Room will offer our meeting clients the opportunity to host business meetings in an environment that is conducive to knowledge sharing and supported by our professional event coordination staff.”


Founded with purpose, ABI existence was built on providing the type of value not typically found in corporate, commoditized industries. Knowledge and experience in managed services differentiates the company while local, timely and efficient support sets them apart from national providers and direct manufacturers.

“We are excited to support the RA,” describes Mike Allen, a Vice President with ABI, “The RA is a vibrant community, offering so much in the way of active and healthy living. Similar to the RA’s long line-up of sport, recreation, fitness and events and conference activities, we offer an extensive selection of business systems and office decor. Our high quality systems will support the RA in a cost effective and business oriented fashion.”


This new partnership spans three years and supports all business areas of the RA.
