Industry News: TXMAS Furniture Purchasing Changes

TXMAS LogoIf you purchase office furniture on TXMAS contracts, you will be affected by a recent change to the state’s ordering requirements. In the past, you were able to send your furniture purchase orders directly to us as your servicing dealer for TXMAS purchases of HON and other manufacturers. On June 2, 2014, the State of Texas Comptroller’s office announced that all TXMAS purchase orders must be issued through the TxSmartBuy system to be eligible for TXMAS contract pricing.

The news was slow to reach dealers and furniture manufacturers, so we are working to learn the new process so we can pass it on to you.

What does this mean for furniture purchasers?

Instead of sending your TXMAS Furniture Orders directly to Perry Office Plus, you are required to submit the orders online at http://www.txsmartbuy.com/. After that point, your order will be sent directly to Perry Office Plus and we will process as usual with no delay.

If you have a furniture quote from Perry Office Plus and want to place a TXMAS order…

Download this PDF for instructions on the ordering process when you have a quote from Perry Office Plus. During the order process, you’ll select Perry Office Products as your dealer as indicated in step #7. When you checkout, the order will be emailed directly to the Perry Office Furniture Team. You will receive an email from a Perry Office Plus staff member to confirm receipt and processing of your order.

If you don’t have a quote…

Please contact Jessica or Lea in the Perry Office Plus Furniture Department at 800-234-6605 and we can send you a quote. Having a quote means you won’t have to enter every line item on your Purchase Order.
