What is TrustX Alliance and What Does It have to Do with AlphaLink?

Launched in early 1998, VentureTech Network is an exclusive $3 billion national sales and service network that consists of approximately 500 (small to midsize business-focused) certifiedtechnology providers. VentureTech Network members aren't only computer value-added resellers -- we are true business allies, providing turnkey solutions to meet the demands of growing companies like yours.

What's the key to our success? In a word: partnership. VentureTech Network is backed by Ingram Micro, the world's largest distributor of technology products and services, and by such influential manufacturers as Compaq, Microsoft, IBM, Cisco, Toshiba, 3Com, and Hewlett-Packard. We also maintain strong member-to-member relationships. By leveraging one another's core competencies to support each client's needs, we succeed in providing superior system solutions.

Because we belong to VentureTech Network, we are:

Connected -- Through the network's exclusive web site, semiannual conferences, and a dedicated management team, we work with members in the United States and Canada to provide the best support for you. Additionally, we have access to Ingram Micro's selection of more than 280,000 products from 1,700 manufacturers. No matter where you are or what you need, we have the resources to serve you. VentureTech Network offers coast-to-coast continuity in seamless support and services for the computer community.

Certified -- To maintain our membership status, we must earn and keep sales, service and software authorizations from these leading manufacturers. We also participate in regular training sessions. This helps us provide the expert assistance you deserve.

Competitive -- As a VentureTech Network member, we offer benefits other solution providers can't. For example, we can use an exclusive Technology Assessment Profile software program to evaluate your technology status and help you plan for cost-effective purchases. We can arrange financing, including low-cost leases that combat equipment obsolescence. Special pricing and promotions from VentureTech Network's manufacturer partners are given to our clients.

AlphaLink is proud to be part of such a great organization -- and we're thrilled at its positive influence on our customer-service capabilities. If you have questions about VentureTech Network, or our role in it, please do not hesitate to contact us. It is a key part of our ability to provide you world-class solutions that meet and fulfill your business needs and goals.
