We started over 20 years ago in lower Manhattan with four sales reps utilizing temporary office space. Today, CDS has nine offices and about two-hundred employees across six states and our nation's capital. During our geographic expansion over the years, CDS also transformed from a Xerox Agent to a full-service provider. Beyond Xerox copiers and printers, CDS offers a full suite of technology solutions ranging from managed print services, to managed IT services, and project-based IT services, providing our customers a single source for all their business technology needs.
From our inception to present, our customers have always been our top priority. We pledge to always offer an unparalleled service to our customers, recommending the best solutions to fit their office technology needs. Whether it’s providing a feature rich multifunction device, assisting with IT infrastructure support, or mitigating high printing costs associated with network printers, CDS will provide the right solution, while recognizing that not all businesses are an ideal fit for CDS.
CDS fosters a workplace environment that is competitive, but supportive. Veteran sales representatives are always willing to aid their colleagues. Be it a senior business development account executive working with a junior sales person on a proposal, or a junior technician mentoring a new hire, we are a true team. Service, Billing, Customer Support, and Sales all come together to delivery an award-winning customer experience.
CDS has quickly grown to be one of the largest independent document and information technology providers in the United States.
As we look forward to the future, we continue to invest heavily in our people, technology, product, and service offerings to ensure we continue to provide the best customer, partner, and employee experiences possible.
Our goal is to provide unrivaled support to your organization by bringing together industry experts dedicated to solving your biggest technology challenges.
