Our Vendor Partners

At the TomK Consulting Group, we make a point of “playing nice” with everyone we come in contact with, and we've built a solid reputation of being Vendor Neutral. We don’t, therefore, ink formal partner relationships.

The following vendors are our “informal” partners. Whether we have personal relationships with the principals, work closely with their staff, or work diligently with them to jointly enhance our clients' profitability, they have earned our respect for their competency, ethics, and desire to provide excellent service. We are proud to be their Partners, and are happy to recommend their products, services, and staff:
