In partnership with our friends at @acer, we had the privilege of participating in the @mark_wahlberg_youth_foundation holiday party this morning and donating 250 Chromebooks to deserving children from Boston area Boys & Girls Clubs of America. Great event for a great cause! We feel honored to have been a small part of it.

Today, we serve our customers through our staff of highly trained Account Managers, our team of on-staff experts, and our efficient procurement websites.
“A better way to buy information technology products.” That's what Patricia Gallup and David Hall had in mind when they founded our company in 1982. Seeing a significant business opportunity in the emerging personal computer industry, the two entrepreneurs launched their direct computer supply business with the philosophy that providing technical advice and focusing on customer service was as important as low prices. Using their personal savings, they purchased $8,000 of inventory, placed a 1/9th-page ad in Byte Magazine, and took their first step on the road to unprecedented growth and innovation. As the magazine hit the newsstands, they waited two long days for the telephone to ring. On the third day, it started ringing. It hasn't stopped since.
A Continuing Commitment to Service
Before the first phone call was answered, Gallup and Hall planned to create a business culture designed to provide exemplary service and build long-term customer relationships. This strategy has proved to be very successful and remains a key component of our mission. Since its inception, our company has been credited with many direct marketing service innovations, and has received many awards for customer service and dedication.
Some of the programs our experts pioneered established industry standards while raising the expectations of today’s technology shoppers. Some of our innovations include:
