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 2012´. 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
“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.
