We are privileged to work with some great providers on a daily basis, and we love to tell everyone we can about them. This week, though, one of those partners returned the favor: Dell named Dynamic Quest “Preferred Partner of the Year” at Dell World 2012 in Austin, Texas on Tuesday, December 11.
Many of our clients have benefited from the relationship between Dynamic Quest and Dell. We often team up to provide IT hardware, data storage solutions, backup and disaster recovery, and virtualization services to meet our client’s needs.
“Our strategic partnership with Dell has allowed us to maximize the business value of our IT Solutions. By partnering with Dell, Dynamic Quest is able to provide our clients with a much better solution at a very competitive price. Our clients know that Dynamic Quest is committed to providing them with the most up to date technology possible, and our partnership with Dell has been a key factor in our success.”
– Jen Wong, Principal

We did a proof of concept that met every requirement that our customer might have. In fact, we saw a substantial improvement.
