Lewan is Dell’s Partner of the Year!

The annual awards honor Dell partners for delivering exemplary solutions for their customers during the past year, and guess what?  Lewan is Dell’s Partner of the Year! We often tell customers and prospects of our expertise with Dell hardware and software solutions but I’m guessing most of them just think that’s a sales pitch, it’s not, it’s a fact.

I’m excited to have received this recognition directly from Dell…more confirmation of what we already know…we’re really good at this stuff!
