Digital Pathfinder for IT Solutions

Client Overview

Candoris offers information technology solutions with a strong, mission-driven culture which supports a substantial amount of non-profit clients. They are a Dell EMC preferred channel partner.

Situation

Candoris experienced rapid growth during a period from being a start-up company to offering an ever-expanding set of solutions and products (data storage and protection, security, virtualization, networking, cloud, application development, salesforce consulting and managed services) and needed to clearly define and differentiate themselves and their unique offerings in order to win market share while embracing their culture and values.

“Dialog’s messaging process has added so much objectivity and rigor to something that can easily be weighed down with opinions. Hiring Dialog was the single best investment that we’ve made. Dialog is a great partner and a valuable resource!”

Founder & Chief Accountability Officer
