…we’ve been working in IT ‘operations’ and ‘the channel’ for over twenty years now. So our close vendor-relationships include: Hardware, Software-licensing, Networking, Infrastructure, Professional Services, Telephony and Contract-maintenance. As well as: storage, business-continuity, disaster-recovery and Virtualisation. There’s an almost infinite list of vendors who’s stuff we know works; some of them are shown above.
But because we’ve been constantly learning over the years too, we know how to procure the unusual things from unlikely vendors too. The things that are a ‘pain to procure’ – twenty retro posters anyone? But are the glue that holds an unusual project together for example (we actually sourced some special glue for a client the other day).
