Avoid the Mayhem. Shop Online with OWC.

Friday, November 29th, 2013 | Author:

The chaos of Black Friday seems to happen earlier and earlier every year. In fact, the mayhem starts so early, they should probably rename it Black Thursday-Friday.

But no matter how early you get in line for those time-release specials, there’s a chance that the supply is exhausted before the line is. And if you do get lucky and get what you want, your reward is another line just to check out. It’s quite a contrast to the calm and ease of doing your shopping online.

Tips For Getting Your OWC Order In Time for the Holidays

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013 | Author:

Globe-GiftsThe holidays are creeping ever closer, and we at OWC hope that everyone is ready for a safe, wonderful Thanksgiving! And while spending time with family and friends is a popular Thanksgiving tradition for most, there’s another tradition that many others like to partake in – waiting in long lines for Black Friday deals.

But there’s a much easier way to still get your shopping done early and get your packages in time without leaving the comfort of your home for the discomfort of a cold, hard sidewalk. By shopping online, you can avoid the craziness of maniacal Black Friday shoppers and if you start early enough, just about every retailer offers free or extremely discounted shipping options this time of year.

The emphasis is on starting early – but during the chaos of the holidays, who among us can truthfully say we’re batting 1.000 on that? With so much on our plates (other than turkey), it’s hard to make time to get ahead on shopping.

You Can Put Your Trust In Other World Computing

Google-trusted-storeEagle-eyed visitors of macsales.com might have recently noticed the colorful little logo with a checkmark popping up in the bottom corner when browsing our site and wondered what it means.

The Google Trusted Store program was created by Google to recognize companies that are truly devoted to great customer service and reliable shipping. Certification can be difficult to get and requires a company to meet some very high customer satisfaction benchmarks, so we here at OWC were very excited when we were accepted into the program in October.

To some companies it might just be another fancy logo to add to the bottom of their homepage, but to us it is a symbol of how dedicated we are to the customer and to making sure they have a problem-free experience and get their orders on time with no drama.

Other World Computing: Sourcing America

Saturday, November 2nd, 2013 | Author:

globe-saluteThere is an assumption most everything tech is manufactured in Asia. OWC is an exception to this. While some things can be done cheaper in China, I’m a true believer we can do it better in the USA. While it’s not practical or even possible to do everything here, we’re constantly innovating new ways to do more in the USA. Check out what OWC has accomplished so far. 

Made in the USA Cases Protect iPhone/iPad

According to a recent survey by Consumer Reports, 78% of Americans would rather buy an American product than an identical one made abroad. At OWC, we understand why and feel the same way.

Over half the cost of producing our high-quality, impact-resistant cases is spent on the space-age absorbing gel that’s made right here in the USA. The kinetic energy X-orbing impact protection is specifically engineered to meet the challenging cushioning and protection requirements of today’s handheld digital devices. With up to eight times more energy absorption capability than competing materials, a mobile device can survive a 20-foot drop onto concrete or an unexpected tumble down the stairs. All this in a slim, one-piece design that isn’t bulky. Article Continues…

Monday, October 7th, 2013 | Author:

csw2013You think about a lot of different things during the day. Do you want a McFlurry or a Frosty (or both)? Should you grow a mustache? And if so, what kind would accentuate your face best—Handlebar, Fu Manchu, Imperial? What exactly is Will Smith doing RIGHT NOW? But out of all the random thoughts we have, this week we are encouraging all of Team OWC to “Think Service” in everything they do.

From October 7-11, OWC will be celebrating Customer Service Week, and this year’s theme is “Think Service.” For this week and every day throughout the year, we are encouraging our team to think about how they can provide the best possible service to everyone with whom they interact. How do we encourage this you ask? Well, what is a bigger motivator than food and prizes?! Article Continues…
