In 1964, two recent graduates of architecture at Harvard University set
about providing fellow architects, commercial artists and designers with
a convenience they had never had: a single source for all design
supplies and equipment. They called their business "Charrette" - the
intensive activity that ensues leading up to a design deadline -
befitting for their business of efficiently supplying essential tools to
individuals in the heat of meeting deadlines.
Today, the company now known as Service Point, provides services and
software for greater efficiency in document, print, and information
management through over 450 On-Site Services (FM) programs with client
firms nationwide; through service centers in the Northeast and
Mid-Atlantic regions, and via online access.
