HomeWhy CFI → Our Partners

A key element to CFI’s ability to provide a one-stop shop for business IT solutions is our strong partnerships. Our vendor partners represent major manufacturers of computer hardware products and software application providers with a focus on best-of-breed vendors to support network and security solutions. CFI also has developed several strategic partners which are organizations that can provide consulting or installation expertise, which may augment our service areas to provide complete end-to-end delivery of certain specific solutions.


Product resale complements our consulting services. It does not drive our business. For this reason, our partners are carefully selected based on the superior solutions they offer to our clients today.


CFI is not tied to any of its vendor partners and, therefore, is always free to seek and develop the optimal solution for each client’s specific needs.
