The Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister responsible for CED
“CED’s support is vital, as it allows us to add high-performance equipment to our world-class cloud infrastructure. eCommerce is expanding rapidly in both the business-to-business (B2B) and retail sales (B2C) models. More and more businesses are turning to the Web to boost their sales, improve the quality of their services and reduce their operating costs. Whether accessed from a mobile device, tablet or computer, our clients’ transactional websites must be available at all times and have the capacity to respond instantly. This new equipment will help us not only improve the quality of our services for our existing clients, but also support the growth of our company while serving more clients.”
