We felt it was important to gain entry into the State’s preferred vendor listing to establish ourselves as a viable player among our peers. We have over 40 years of industry experience behind us and a strong reputation for outstanding customer service.
Herkimer, NY (PRWEB) July 12, 2012
Annese & Associates, Inc. has been accepted as a pre-qualified vendor for IT related projects in the state of Vermont after completing a rigorous application process.
The State’s Department of Information and Innovation qualifies organizations on a wide range of information technology products and services offered, in addition to ensuring compliance with industry standards. The intent is to enable departments and agencies seeking IT vendors to more quickly accomplish work based on Statements of Work developed for specific projects.
“Breaking into a new territory can be challenging when your company is not yet a household name,” said Annese’s Account Manager for the region, Andy Enright. “We felt it was important to gain entry into the State’s preferred vendor listing to establish ourselves as a viable player among our peers. We have over 40 years of industry experience behind us and a strong reputation for outstanding customer service. We are more than ready to hit the ground running and look forward to a mutually beneficial relationship with the State of Vermont.”
This recent feat compliments the necessary efforts Annese has made upon entering the Vermont market after 40 years in New York State. In 2010, the firm—now owned by the four daughters of retired founder, Frank J. Annese—obtained a Vermont Woman Owned Business Enterprise (WBE) certification as a way to help clients meet government mandates while procuring a reliable vendor for their communications technology projects.
Annese works within the education, healthcare, government, and commercial market segments. The organization employs just over 100 employees and brought in $62M in revenue last year. Annese’s New England presence also includes Rhode Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Maine.
