We work with a number of business partners in order to provide the best possible service and solutions to our clients. Since we couldn’t do the work we do without them, we wanted to take a moment to highlight and thank one of our important contracts: E&I Cooperative Services.
The competitively-solicited agreement between E&I and IVCi allows us to bring more AV solutions into classrooms that we may not otherwise have been able to.
