NOTE: When sharing references, we will never breach confidentiality of any partner and will not share partner or end-client details without prior approval.

Typically vendors do not allow 3rd-parties to leverage other partners’ accreditations as if they were their own.

IT projects can be complicated, and from time to time, things will go wrong.  When this does occur we will seek to understand what has happened; the impact the issue has for our partner and their client; what needs to be done to resolve the issue and what we can learn which prevents the issue occurring in the future.  Then we will work together with you and your client to agree on a way forward for rapid resolution.
