What does this mean to you?
One of the best things you can do for your business is to make sure you partner with companies who are focused on YOUR business and have a plan for growth.
Netgear is such a company.
A winning combination is a great local consultant, who is tied into a great partner (like Netgear). Sure, you want to make sure that your consultant is selling you a product that’s best for you and not for them. However, it’s to your advantage for your local consultant to have a relationship with a strong vendor.
The benefits? They can offer you better and faster support. They often are more familiar with the vendor’s product and can service you better.
