Consumers and small businesses can try the newest Windows 8 on computers and tablets at Officemax stores before making a purchase. Specifically, OfficeMax business-to-business customers will have access to windows 8-accredited consultants on a wide range of subjects, from software to accessories.
From October 26-28, OfficeMax store associates will provide live-in store demonstrations on the new Windows 8 software each hour from noon – 6 p.m. Every OfficeMax store will also feature PCs with Windows 8 for customers to “test drive” the new software first-hand. This three day event aims to help customers take the guesswork out of Windows 8 computers and accessories, as well as give them a chance to explore the groundbreaking new interface and features of the Windows 8 platform. OfficeMax business-to-business teams trained on Windows 8 will also help small business customers with software licensing, provide access to hundreds of Windows 8 computers, tablets and accessories to support business customers with Windows 8 launch strategies.
“Our in-store Demo Days and new assortment of computers and tablets optimized with Windows 8 provide customers with an opportunity to experience Windows 8 themselves and see how the user experience will come to life on the screen,” said Ronald Lalla, executive vice president and chief merchandising officer at OfficeMax. “Additionally, with our expanded in-store technology selection and trained business-to-business support team, OfficeMax is helping small businesses and consumers take the uncertainty out of purchasing the latest Windows 8 software, computers and tablets.”
