Maximize your I.T. Budget with Buying Groups

We’ve established strategic partnerships with many organizations across North America to ensure that you receive the best pricing on the widest selection of brand name I.T. hardware without necessarily going out to bid or buying off state contract. Check out our affiliates below.

If you have never dealt with an affiliate, we can help you get set up. Once you do, you will have the freedom to buy from any supplier who is a member of the affiliate exactly like you were buying off state contract. Your choice expands tremendously, your costs are reduced and you can work with vendors like us who are far more responsive to your needs.

Don’t Just Take Our Word for it

“For over five years we’ve been using CDI as our primary vendor of I.T. hardware. Back in 2009 we purchased CDI Certified equipment which came with a zero cost of ownership guarantee, giving us the ability to get the most out of our initial investment. We recently bought Dell PowerEdge Servers. The order was fulfilled on time and the equipment is in great shape and running. I recommend choosing CDI as a partner for your computers, servers and networking needs. They have a hardworking team who shows they care about their customers.“

IT Administrator, Attleboro School District, MA
“I just wanted to thank you for all your assistance as we begin using CDI for updating our server fleet. We now have five of your refurbished Dell servers and are very happy with their performance and the cost savings we have achieved.”

Director of Technology, De Soto School District #73, MO
“Now that CDI offers more products; I decided to try and save even more money. I needed a enterprise servers to install VMWare to run some virtual appliances. I am pleased with the performance and very pleased with the price. I highly recommend getting your enterprise servers from CDI. You’ll save money with their quality products.”

Technology Coordinator, Cumby ISD, TX
“ My district has been working with CDI since 2008. Recently we gave CDI the opportunity to source a Dell R610 server and we are very happy that we decided to trust CDI again for our I.T. hardware needs. We have had very good service and support from CDI in all of our previous purchases; desktop computers and laptops, so it made sense to look at them for our server needs as well. Saving as much as we can on I.T. purchases is always a critical factor for my district and with CDI we’re able to do that and still get reliability. I highly recommend CDI to all my peers in the Education sector.”
