Canadian companies eligible to win one of five vacation prizes by updating IT
ETOBICOKE, ON, May 9, 2012 /CNW/ - CDW Canada, a leading provider of technology solutions for Canadian organizations in the public and private sectors, is encouraging Canadian businesses to reap the benefits of refreshing technology through the launch of a third annual contest. A recent CDW Canada poll of customers indicates that refreshing technology is a priority for more than half of Canadian businesses in 2012¹. By keeping technology up-to-date, businesses are able to save on costs over the longer term and take advantage of the benefits new technology offers, thereby increasing productivity and more.
"Technology refresh has become an even more important focus for Canadian businesses," says Daniel Reio, Director of Marketing, CDW Canada. "Updating technology on a regular basis can help companies maintain productivity levels as well as improve the efficiency of business, and save money in the long term. Especially in today's age of mobility, updating technology has never made more sense for companies."
"Many businesses operating with older, aging technology and an 'if it isn't broken, don't fix it' approach to IT don't realize what the recent acceleration in technology innovation can deliver for them," says Warren Shiau, Director of Technology Research at Leger Marketing. "This is especially true of the collaboration and communications functionality that new technology offers, as well as the IT administration, management efficiencies and cost savings they can get. The benefits of refreshing your IT systems are definitely there."
Working with a trusted solutions provider can help businesses choose the best technology to improve their current environment. With trained account managers, specialists and service offerings, companies that partner with CDW Canada receive dedicated, one-on-one attention from experts who understand their business needs.
