Hi, I'm Dave. We look forward to working with you and help you find  a vendor for your business needs.  Dave Forde, Founder - The Connected One


Choosing the right supplier involves much more than scanning a series of price lists. Your choice will depend on a wide range of factors such as value for money, quality, reliability and service. How you weigh up the importance of these different factors will be based on your business' priorities and strategy.

When you are selecting a potential vendor, you are selecting a partner in your business and you will trust them to work with you in a professional and profitable manner. It is important that you chose a company that can supply your requirements now and for the near future.
