  • IT Industry Outlook 2021: Rebuilding For The Future

    It didn’t take long for the optimism of a new decade to wear off. By the end of Q1 2020, companies everywhere were reeling as they reckoned with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Sadly, the impact of the virus was too much for many firms, leaving millions of workers unemployed and driving thousands of businesses to close their doors. Those companies that stayed afloat had to act quickly in order to enable their remote workforce and maintain operations.

CASE STUDIES

  • Free POS Helps Pad VAR's Wallet

    You don't have to be a retail IT VAR to see that restaurants go in and out of business all the time. Many smart VARs use this to their advantage. Such was the case with Gary Hayes, owner of GH Computer Enterprises, who was driving through a section of Chicago when he noticed a new “coming soon” sign on the door of a restaurant that recently went out of business.
