Strategic Partners

by | Jan 20, 2009 | About Us

At Waident, we value the trust our customers place in us to guide their technology investment decisions. We recognize the importance of working with proven business partners to provide seamless execution in our IT service delivery. Each of our technology service partners is a recognized leader in the service they provide and has a positive track record working with small to medium sized businesses.

Our interests are aligned in the selection of companies with whom we choose to partner. Our primary focus is to understand the technology needs of your business and to support the people using that technology. As we expand our support team to include 3rd party vendor partners, it is in our best interest to ensure that the partner’s technology, service and support address your needs in a cost effective manner.

We select partners in technology segments where there is either (1) a noticeable gap in technical capability between manufacturer’s specifications or (2) there is a major difference in the level of ongoing support provided following a purchase. The performance of partner firms is constantly evaluated throughout year. The following is a listing of our current Partners:

XNet Information Systems blends a superb network infrastructure, high end consulting services, and intelligent, client oriented professionals to bring you top tier solutions from our Critical Computing Facility in the heart of the Silicon Prairie.
