method for business leaders in CT and the Tri-State area to acquire first-class technology expertise.
The key ingredients of Group 26:
INTEGRITY AND ACCOUNTABILITY
An exciting development in the Group 26 Technology business model is the addition of enterprise-level coverage, as our partner network employee base has surpassed 1,100. In addition to our small- and medium-sized core coverage, Group 26 is also now working with clients with multiple offices, both in the U.S. and globally, on a variety of projects and strategic support options.
At Group 26 Technology Consultants, we are redefining the typical technology consulting/outsourcing paradigm. Instead of being the firm pushing to sell you IT hardware and/or software to satisfy short-term needs, we take a longer view. After earning a consulting relationship with you, we’ll develop IT solutions that last. In many cases, we can also identify state-of-the-art solutions that cost less and are easier to set up and maintain.
We pledge to serve, not just as another vendor, but as your absolute:
TRUSTED TECHNOLOGY ADVISOR
Think of us as a deep, broad and powerful technology team enabling your leadership to do what they do best -- grow and lead your business without "breaking the bank or busting the budget."
Many leadership teams do not include specialized IT thought leaders. Our team has vetted industry trailblazers, partnering with those we feel best fit the requirements of a variety of businesses. Most often, no individual or company possesses all the skill sets they may promise and that your company may require. That fact is the key differentiator in Group 26’s value proposition.
