East Coast IT Partner Alliance
Hoboken, New Jersey ­- December 29, 2010 – Sometimes “growing the pie” trumps competing with one another. Such is the case with two award-winning Microsoft Gold Partner and IT support experts in the NYC and DC areas as they rollout joint service support for customers along the northeast US business corridor. A new video by eMazzanti Technologies featuring Steve Hall, president, District Computers, Washington DC, underscores the benefits of the new partner alliance.

“The alliance between eMazzanti and District Computers definitely grows the ‘pie’ or market area we can both service,” said Carl Mazzanti, chief operating officer, eMazzanti Technologies.“We are jointly tackling new and bigger business opportunities than we would have had the resources to go after independently. It absolutely makes great business sense.”Read More Stephen Hall speaks about
