AIT Launches Wholesale Technology Business

May 6, 2009 by  

Advanced Internet TechnologiesWeb Hosting ToolsFayetteville, NC – AIT is now a national distributor of technology products. Over the past 14 years Advanced Internet Technologies, AIT, has delivered Internet Services and access to hundreds of thousands of customers.

“The challenges faced by brick and mortar retail electronics outlets, coupled with the current recession, has led SMB’s (Small and Medium size Businesses) to use the Internet to glean product information and purchase products on online. “This change in customer preference prompted us open our own web store and offer top of the line products at wholesale, discounted”, says Clarence Briggs, CEO of AIT.

The new AIT Outlet store is located at www.AIToutlet.com. “Now we are a technology product distributor offering over 75,000 products from 200 manufacturers,” says Briggs. AIT also expect to sell to larger companies and government agencies. “Because we are a military service, disabled veteran owned company that is very diverse, we can provide products to larger entities that have diversity and set aside requirements,” says Al Whitfield, VP of Business Development and Government Contracting.

According to SMB OnLine Experience research, Brigg’s strategic shift is timely and confirmed by independent research. Compass Intelligence’s research also shows that Small Businesses are negatively affected, but not defeated by the current US recession. The key finding is that the majority of Small Business IT buyers have remained positive about their IT spending during the most troubling and uncertain months of this recession, with 42% of those surveyed in March of this year expecting to keep their ICT spending unchanged in 2009, while another 20% expect ICT spending to increase. “Our research shows that roughly 60% of US SMBs have been negatively affected to some degree by this recession. But, most still expect to invest in technology this year. That’s because the spirit of the American Entrepreneur is not easily broken – they are a powerful force of economic recovery and, in good years, a catalyst for growth,” says Kneko Burney, Chief Strategist of Compass Intelligence. Mrs. Burney adds, “Understanding this uniquely indomitable spirit will help larger companies, like those in this research, tap into the massive and growing SMB market opportunity.”

The AIT Outlet offers business and home consumers the opportunity to purchase over 25,000 hardware and software products at the lowest prices in the industry. “In difficult economic times, AIT brings you the best technology for the least cost”, says Briggs. All products are new and come with the manufacturer’s warranty and 24x7x365 service. “This is a great opportunity for business owners to use their resources wisely,” says Ben Russell, a current AIT customer. “I replaced some outdated hardware and software for my small business and saved thousands of dollars. The AIT Outlet let me compare prices and make the purchase in minutes.” Russell added. “Plus, because I used it for technical R&D and going green, I am eligible for tax credits under the new TARP programs.”

Company officials stated that at the AIT Outlet, anyone can set up an account, purchase directly for their own use, or buy and resell these great name brand products and services.
