White Label vs Direct Touch

We have also supported them as Breathe, but the end customer relationship is always owned by our customer and we are accustomed to this type of working relationship, respecting the financial and commercial relationships in place.

All quotes/proposals and other documents can be done in a way to integrate with the way you already work.

As well as removing the frustrating helpdesk experience, it means that you have a personal set of contacts. They know you and you know them. They will understand exactly how you work and what you expect. Trust is a key component of a good support relationship.

Finally, we can supply all the hardware and software you need too. We’re actually the regional Microsoft Education Licensing Partner.
