CDW, a national technology solutions provider recently announced that its Tech Twister technology makeover contest. The company’s teaming up with IBM, Intel and Linksys to offer small businesses a chance to win a complete technology makeover.
Each of the five winners will also receive advice from mentors who will evaluate each winner’s business, specific challenges and needs in order to choose the right technology solutions.
Tech Twister — so named, according to Norm Lillis vice-president at CDW, because today’s technology changes at such a fast pace — is open to any small business with five to 100 employees.
