Windstream Hosted Solutions and CDIT Solutions

By

CDIT utilizes Windstream manage cloud services to meet their technology needs.

CDIT LLC, providing large-scale commercial information technology and management services to both the public and private sectors, recently chose Windstream Hosted Solutions for server hosting. We thought it might be a good idea to sit down for a little Q&A session with both the president of CDIT, Scott Galloway, as well as our own Hosted Solutions sales director, John Slayton.

Tanja: Scott, what were you looking for, when you initially started researching your technology partnership options?

Scott: As an agile software development company with a diverse customer-base, we needed a technology partner who could move at a rapid pace.

Tanja: Sounds like your business is moving pretty quickly, you’ve got a lot going on.

Scott: Absolutely, which is why we needed a solutions provider that could keep pace with our growing needs.

Tanja: So, John, how did your team go about assessing CDIT’s needs? Tell me how you collaborated with Scott on the ideal solution for their business.

John: When collaborating with CDIT, the Hosted Solutions team first assessed the critical business objectives, reviewing their growth plans and ultimately identifying managed cloud services as the ideal solution to meet their current and future technology needs.

Tanja: But you’ve got a team working with you from the start, right?

John: Yes, and that’s critical to our success, and the success of our partners. While our solutions engineer, Charles McDonald, is pretty humble, I really credit his years of experience and attention to detail on this one, providing the “smart solutions, personalized service” that CDIT was looking for. Charles has a solid understanding of the software applications industry and was able to quickly suggest a state-of-the-art, customized solution.

Our personalized, high-touch approach, solutions agility, and technical expertise of team members like Charles, are the primary reasons that customers like CDIT trust Windstream Hosted Solutions mission-critical infrastructure and data to Windstream.

Tanja: Scott, what would you say was they key factor in your decision-making process?

Scott: It’s tough to pinpoint one factor. Having Windstream’s on-demand, cloud-based services at our fingertips allows us to provide world-class services and availability to our own customers. Additionally, the ability to scale our services gives us capabilities that allow us to seamlessly take our excellent federal products into the private and commercial space. The level of support that the Hosted Solutions team has already shown has been outstanding. With Windstream behind us, CDIT will be able to expand our operations and continue to provide outstanding service to our customers.

Tanja: I think that pretty much sums it up – great example of a new partnership. We’re all looking forward to CDIT’s success!
