Our Partnerhips in providing IT services in Raleigh NC

Our primary responsibility is to our customers, and so all of our recommendations are based on an honest assessment of your situation and designed to find the best solution in your circumstances in the environment around Raleigh NC. This is the reason why Allora generally does not engage into partnerships with specific software, equipment, and IT service vendors. We do not wish to only give advice based on 'kick backs', or any type of revenue sharing arrangements that we have with other vendors-we just want to give the best advice possible.

There are still a few partners that we are happy to have. We are proud of these partnerships with some vendors in the Raleigh & Durham area and we confidently promote their products. Currently, we have partnership arrangements with Intrex Computers, Time Warner Cable Business Class, Avast and GFI.

A locally owned business called Intrex Computers provides a retail outlet for computer hardware and software. Their sales staff is very knowledge, and and they have capable technicians who build quality servers and workstations at very reasonable prices-without taking short cuts. We highly value this particular partnership because of the very high standards of warranty IT services (although Allora rarely have to resort to it unlike many big name retailers)

Time Warner Cable Business Class has demonstrated that they provide a superior bandwidth resource for small businesses in our market. We have found that they are the best value for broadband in the area and we enthusiastically endorse their bandwidth solutions

GFI provides its customers with a tremendous selection of security and maintenance products for Small Business networks (more specifically, server-based networks). GFI's office is located in Cary-having them as a neighbor naturally fits Allora's choice to partner with GFI.

Another well known player in the IT industry is Avast, headquartered in Prague, Czech Republic. There are a few reasons why we chose to develop a strong partnership with Avast: Small Business market is their prime focus; Avast provides an excellent FREE AntiVirus protection for home users and thus a lot of our clients coming to work have already dealt with a familiar product at home; very reasonable pricing, especially when it comes to the non-profit organization discounts they give.

In the world of Open-Source Allora enjoys working with organizations like RedHat, Joomla and CiviCRM.
