A New Year with New Opportunities

Posted by on Tuesday, 11 January, 2011

What a rewarding 2010 it was here at Walker IT Group, LLC. First and foremost, we’d like to thank our customers over the past year that contributed to us getting off the ground. Your business was most appreciated, and we’re thankful for all the positive feedback and referrals to new customers.

It was a full year, and we’ve had the opportunity to work on some great projects such as Exchange 2010 migrations, Office Communications Server pilots, VMware migrations, and a host of other technology challenges. So busy in fact that it’s been tough to keep the blog up to date!

I’d like to share with everyone some exciting news. Every once in a while one of our customers comes to us and asks if we can procure hardware and software for them. The answer has always been that we can put them in touch with the right folks thanks to our industry connections, and we at Walker IT Group, LLC will help ensure everything is spec’ed out correctly.

This has happened often enough that after much consideration and planning, we are pleased to announce that we have officially become a reseller of IT equipment and software! We’ve put agreements in place with two distribution powerhouses: Ingram Micro and Tech Data. Through our relationship with these firms, we’re now able to offer our customers a wide selection of products from thousands of different manufacturers. When it’s time to purchase new equipment, please think of us, we’d love the opportunity to present you a free, no-obligation quote.

Additionally, we’ve also partnered with select companies that align well with our offered services in order to give the customers that ask for it the ability to have a “one-stop shop” for their IT Infrastructure needs. Please see our “Partners” page for more details on the current roster. We will periodically review our relationships and maintain a suitable mix based on the needs of our customers.

We of course recognize that many of our existing customers prefer to buy their equipment and software through their own sources, and we’d like to reiterate this doesn’t present a problem at all. The service you’ve come to expect from us will continue to be available regardless to where you’ve purchased your equipment or software.

Finally, while these partnerships are important to us, let me re-assure everyone that we primarily think of ourselves as a service provider. To that end, if the right solution for your business is from a vendor that we don’t have as a partner we won’t hesistate to recommend that solution for you – arriving at the right answer for our customer’s businesses is more important to us than proposing an alternate solution just because we happen to sell it. At the same time, we’ve carefully selected our current partners because we feel they offer some of the best solutions in the industry.

We’re excited about the opportunity to expand our offerings to our customers, and we weclome your feedback and comments.
