A Helping Hand

Preferred Business Partners program lightens the load

by Don Rodriguez

For anyone owning or operating a business, the days are already long enough. After all, dealing with daily challenges is enough to make a person constantly wonder, “What’s next?”

Whether it’s something that’s a regular part of doing business or unplanned, it’s not unusual for the days to get longer when the business needs to turn to an outside vendor for a remedy. Along with that comes the uncertainty of who to trust and whether the price will be a budget-buster.

Instead of wasting anyone’s valuable time researching and calling to collect quotes, the Arizona Technology Council Preferred Business Partners program was launched to provide significant member discounts on the products and services technology businesses need most.

Companies participating in the program are active Council members committed to providing high-quality products and services with highly reduced prices solely for AZTC members.

The Council’s Preferred Business Partners for 2023 are:
