  • “Our ability to offer a state-of-the-art infrastructure is one of the top three requirements students look for in their institutions. Thanks to our ongoing partnership with Aruba and CNI, I am confident saying we can provide that and remain competitive both now and in the future. For that reason, Marywood benefits from this relationship every day. And I am grateful they are our partners.”

    – Marywood University, Wendy Yankelitis, Vice President of Operations

  • “CNI was there for us every time we had any sort of implementation question or issue. They were the perfect bridge between us and our Extreme technology.”

    – Sight & Sound Theatres®, Rob Taylor, Director of Information Technology

  • “The purchasing process with CNI has to have been one of the most painless purchase/financings in years! Thanks for helping us pull this together.”

    – CarePoint Health, Richard Sarli, Interim Chief Financial Officer

  • “When you work with CNI Sales, you gain an attentive business partner who will actively take part in listening, developing and providing a solution that meets your needs.”

    – Kutztown University of PA, Josh Heller, Manager of Network Technologies

  • “My first introduction to CNI was 25 years ago, while a 3Com Field Engineer assigned to a customer site in Exton PA, when we discovered that we needed multiple 3Com Frame Relay Routers, yesterday! The customer made one phone call to Roger of CNI. I kid you not, Roger put them in his car and drove them out to site! No paperwork, no purchase order, no hassle! And no one seemed surprised, except me. Here was a man that truly put the customer first.

    “About 5 years later, I had taken an ITS Director position at Widener University, overseeing the network. We had just replaced the 3Com network with Nortel and I was struggling with the hassle of paperwork and purchase orders that took weeks to obtain from Nortel. Nothing seemed easy until one day, when Roger called me and asked if we could do lunch. He had no idea what I was dealing with, he just wanted to see how I was doing. He introduced me to Tim Slattery, who could not have made my life any easier! Quotes were done in hours, not weeks. Orders were shipped, with only my word that it would be paid for. And when we needed other networking products, it was CNI that brought the experts to us.

    “In a recent Zoom Meeting, with Covid wearing everyone down, Tom Kirk’s opening statement could not have been better! The first words out of his mouth were “How are you doing?” That sums up CNI. A relationship that is focused on the people. CNI is not a company, it is a family. And I am very lucky to have been a member!”

    – Widener University, Perry Drayfahl, Director of Technology Resources, ITS

  • “When you think of Aruba Pennsylvania, you think of CNI. The Aruba/CNI relationship is one that dates back to Aruba’s early days, as CNI was an early adopter of Aruba and they have stuck by ever since. CNI has always been a go-to partner for Aruba, an extension of our team. Not only are their dedicated engineers some of the top in the industry, but CNI’s sellers represent Aruba’s core values of Customer First, Customer Last.”
