The back bone of Jay’s Business Systems Inc. is honesty and integrity, according to company president, Joseph L. Tomaro. “I am always looking at my business through my customer’s eyes. We respond as a team to meet and exceed customer expectations. I call this ‘customer vision,’” he says.
As the president and sole owner of Jay’s Business Systems Inc. It’s Tomaro’s job to oversee the day-to-day operations of the business. He began in the copier industry 20 years ago as a sales representative and worked for a billion dollar direct copier company in New Jersey, as well as a copier dealership, before returning to the area to open his own business.
“My motivation is to leverage the hardware and software technology we sell to help business’s reduce operating cost by streamlining processes, eliminating bottlenecks, increasing efficiency and at the same time lowering the cost of how my customers manage their documents,” he says.
He believes there is no substitute for hard work. “There is no such thing as good luck in the work place,” he says. “It’s all about effort and being rewarded for the hard work and preparation you put into it.”
His mentors have always been his parents, who taught him to never give up, to never stop chasing his dreams and who always treated people with respect and compassion. He is grateful for the support of his wife and three children, and the rest of his extended family.
“The future of JBS is bright and our vision and passion will never waver. We will keep growing and expanding our offerings in order to continue to support our customers current and future needs,” he says about the future goals of his business.
