"We Keep It Simple"
Richard Chan, President
|Message from the President|
To my dearest friends,
Since KIS web site was reviewed and approved by LAUSD OIG in 2000, I hardly find time to modify or update it; I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.
It is so incredible to see how things changed in the past years. I am glad to witness marriages and new born members of our KIS families. I was saddened by the death of our company CPA friend, Mr. Steven Long. I congratulate the merge of PC System and GST. I envy my partners selling their company, MicroAge of Commerce and moved on to other businesses.
When I look back, I am shocked to see not too many companies starting businesses around the same time with me are still serving their customers. I want to congratulate them and wish them well. Without a firm commitment to my employees who worked and followed me 10, 15 and approaching 20 years, I think I would follow their footsteps and enjoy life.
There is no doubt any companies, big or small experience struggling to survival. My secret is economic of scale, the kindness of my clients and trustful supports from Ingram Micro and Synnex. I am scared to death when I calculate the marginal loss of every single deal with my cost accounting knowledge I learned from college. Fortunately, the volumes of our daily sales help offset the overhead expenses and increasing delivery expenses. It also contributes to pay for the incredible costs that incur in service sales and post sales support. We definitely shall work our best efforts to earn the kindness from our clients and financial support from our partners and bankers. My employees all know KIS does not pay their checks, our clients do.
I wish to thank you for your businesses and you are the reason we are still around.
