Government Technology Services
Local units of government are relying increasingly upon technology solutions to streamline processes, share information and improve productivity. Technology has the power to reduce costs by providing enhanced features, increased speeds and operational benefits. Government-owned rather than leased networks reduce annual expenses. Lightning-quick information retrieval saves time and increases customer satisfaction. Many people feel that video surveillance cameras reduce vandalism and crime. Certain kinds of businesses are attracted to cities with high bandwidth access services from the carriers. In the end, technology helps governments to serve their taxpayers better.

Convergent Technology Partners is able to offer the State Government of Michigan Extended Purchasing Program rates to all governmental units in Michigan that are enrolled in the Program. Convergent Technology Partners won the State contract through a competitive process. Program members can use the Convergent contract directly to obtain cost-effective rates and save time because the State has already secured a competitive bid for the members of the Program. This is exactly the same as any Police Department purchasing a police car under the State contract. Therefore, Program members do not have to create a bid specification and go through a selection process unless it is dictated by local policy. Convergent Technology Partners provides expert and cost-effective government services anywhere in the United States.
Convergent Technology Partners has a very extensive list of State, county, city, town and village clients. If you would like more information about these services, please contact us.
