REAL PEOPLE READY TO HELP

The Garrigan's Story

Who We Are

We are a group of individuals committed to erasing hassles and highlighting productivity for your organization. We believe collaboration empowers and strengthens both our company and the businesses we serve.

“There’s never enough time in the day!” This has been the recurring theme among organizations for years. Companies are now doing more with less staff. Every one is crazy busy. Couldn’t we all use little more time in the day to focus on mission critical tasks? We create time for our customers by removing the clutter created by too many product choices.

The reality is 80% of your business needs can be satisfied with only 20% of the total products available. Finding your company’s “right 20%” is key.

The OnTrack program leverages cost benefits of using the “right” products and provides more control without tying up salary dollars. OnTrack has a proven record of reducing spend 17% and cutting staff hours involved in purchasing and account reconciliation procedures up to 60%.

Our mission is to erase hassles and highlight productivity for organizations we serve by being relentlessly, proactively useful.

We can't wait to meet you!

If you are on the phone with someone in our office you will likely hear Kathy’s laughter in the background. “Upbeat” doesn’t begin to cover the positive energy she brings to a room.

Got a question? Haley has an answer! You know those times when you don’t know the right word for that thing you need??? Haley is your translator. She can provide manufacturers’ rebates and prevent returns when your fingers ordered 70 cartons of paper instead of your normal 7.

Sunny This yellow dog was found near an elementary school on Memorial Day weekend 2011, so timid he would Pete Rose under a dumpster when approached. Moonie was able to coax him to follow her the mile home. Ten days later, Julie was finally able to pet him. She found a pink camouflage collar embedded in his neck attached to a chewed off piece of lead. #livingthedreamnow

Moonie The full moon revealed a female black lab in a ditch along OH State Route 72 on April 20, 2008. She’d been hit by a car. Joe came to the rescue with hot dogs to coax her back toward the highway and into the jeep. The dog’s injured tail was L-shaped. The vet suggested food and love would help her wag it back into place. April 22, 2008—mission accomplished. #lablove
