Why Buy CTL? Our Customers Share Their Experience

CTL_imageWhy Buy CTL? We could write a blog post explaining why CTL offers such great products, support and service. But rather than asking you to take our word for it, we decided to have some of our happy customers share their favorite things about working with us. These testimonials come from just a few of our satisfied customers who appreciate working with a tech company with 25 year history  that has USA based service and support. Read on to discover how CTL goes the extra mile to keep our customers happy.

 

“Centennial School District has been working with CTL for a few years now on projects ranging from large scale projector and Chromebook deployments to smaller, single classroom needs. Their customer service is top-notch. When I need a quote for a new order we get it the same day and usually within a few hours. For RMA’s their support team is quick, courteous, and always communicates well the status of ticket. CTL’s management does an excellent job reaching out to their K-12 customers for feedback and genuinely works with their customers to improve upon their products and service. I highly recommend CTL to anyone who is looking for great products, service, and competitive pricing.”

Frank Decker, Executive Supervisor, Instructional Technology & Assessment
Centennial School District

 

“Working with CTL has been a great investment for the Hillsboro School District. CTL provides a great value for the pure hard costs of the technology we are wanting to deploy in our schools. And from my perspective, and equally as important, they excel at providing exceptional value in the soft costs of purchasing technology; time spent researching specs, value in added in providing support on fundamental design and deployment strategies, excellent working relationship. Working with CTL has been and continues to be a value added relationship for our district. I trust them and am able to count on them delivering what they commit to and when they commit to doing it.”

Don Wolff, Chief Information Officer
Hillsboro School District 1J

 

“With over two decades in the tech industry, and five years with CTL, I can honestly say CTL has been the best company to work with. From sales to support the process is always painless.  Fortunately, I never use the support side much, but my few experiences there have been quick and responsive with great results. Being on the state contract list makes it easy to spend the majority of my tech budget with CTL, especially when I’m worried about ROI on an ever tightening budget.”

Don Mespelt, Technology Coordinator
Administrative School District 10
Seaside School District

 

“Working with CTL has been a benefit to our organization. We have found value in working with CTL and their products are serviceable and many use modular components and allow our technicians the ability to repair machines through their in-house certification program. This has allowed us to keep our costs of keeping machines operating low.  We have been using CTL Chromebooks as our standard issue and they have been robust and cost-effective, providing a lot of value to our organization. We are very pleased with the performance, cost, and ongoing reliability of the products that we have received from CTL. Their sales and customer support staff are top notch!”

David Klusman
Oregon City School District

 

“I have been working with CTL for about a year, sourcing all of our desktop PC’s as well as some data infrastructure equipment. CTL has been easy to work with, always meeting stated timelines, and providing right sized solutions that fit our business needs. Additionally every person I have interacted with at CTL has been outgoing, friendly, helpful and a team that is truly enjoyable to work with.”

Marsha Lawton, IT Manager
Powell’s Books

 

“CTL is our preferred supplier for IT hardware.”

Shane Prychun, IT Department
Roth’s Fresh Markets

 

“Working with CTL has been easy and a pleasure and very professional. There is follow-through.  For example, during a period of tight supply on Chromebooks, the staff reserved systems for me in the next shipment and made sure to work with me at every step so I knew what was happening and the timing of the orders. There was a clear sense that they were looking out for my interests, and not just selling computers. Thanks CTL!”

Craig Donnan, MA, Systems Administrator
Washington West Supervisory Union

 

“CTL has been a go-to vendor for Bi-Mart for many years. Often the best price in the market, good quality and on-time delivery. As a Northwest-based, employee-owned company, Bi-Mart values long-term partnerships. CTL has always shown a willingness to work with us to offer custom deals that meet our needs. That quality of working with us, rather than just offering us packaged offerings, defines a good partner.”

Joel Rosenberg, Vice President of Information Systems
Employee/Owner
Bi-Mart Corporation

CTL Proud to Sponsor PDXLAN February 2015 by Giving Away 4K Monitors in Charity Raffle

By Jeremy Burnett, Director of Engineering

Here at CTL, we not only work hard, we play hard too. Many of us are part of the gaming community, myself included, and we’ve been proud to sponsor several PDXLAN events over the years. If you are not familiar with PDXLAN, this is a unique LAN party and one of the biggest in our region. PDXLAN brings together gamers from all over the U.S. and Canada. Up to 550 PC Gamers bring their computers to play video games over the four day event. In addition, participants enjoy fun contests, competitive tournaments and sponsor presentations.

What makes PDXLAN special is the sense of camaraderie that can be felt throughout the event and the fact that it’s about more than just competing and having fun. PDXLAN uses these events as a way to give back to the community. In the past, they have included a canned food drive and over the years they’ve raised over 95,000 pounds of food for homeless shelters. Over the years, we’ve partnered with PDXLAN by donating CTL merchandise that is raffled off with the proceeds benefitting various charities. This year, we provided two CTL X2800 4K monitors. One was given away by itself and the other one was part of a massive gaming rig prize.

As a result of the PDXLAN February 2015 raffle, $10,020 was raised for the Phil Scholz Memorial Foundation. Phil Scholz was an employee of NVIDIA who was killed when he was hit by a Caltrain while trying to pull another man out of harm’s way at the Santa Clara, CA station January 20, 2014. Phil was well-loved at work, at gaming conventions and on the field playing a host of recreational sports. His Memorial Foundation contributes to charities Phil held dear including The American Red Cross Bay Area Chapter, Valley Humane Society of Pleasanton, CA and Baseball Buddies of San Jose, CA. In addition the Philip Scholz Memorial Foundation is now focused on fundraising for the East Bay Regional Park District (EBRPD), specifically to support trail building in the Pleasanton Ridge Regional Park.

CTL proudly joined several other major sponsors to contribute the components for an impressive gaming rig for the raffle, which included:

  • Intel 5960X Processor
  • Dual EVGA 980’s in SLI
  • 32GB of Crucial RAM
  • 500 GB Crucial SSD
  • EVGA Classified Motherboard
  • Astro A50 Wireless Gaming Headset
  • EVGA Toro Mouse
  • Thermaltake Mechanical Keyboard
  • WD 3TB Hard Drive
  • Custom Case from Case Labs
  • Custom cables from Primo-Chill and Modders Inc
  • CTL 4k Monitor

Congratulations to winners Jon Cypert (winner of the gaming rig) and Blake Kraint (winner of a CTL 4K monitor)! We hope to see you at next the next PDXLAN event in July. Visit our product page for the CTL X2800 4K monitor to buy now or get more information. This 28” monitor offers four times the resolution of Full HD. The visuals are stunning with an amazing 3840 x 1260 resolution and gamers can enjoy a 60Hz refresh rate when using the DisplayPort. Looking for components for your dream gaming rig such as video cards, cases, power supplies, cooling systems and more? Check our our Supplier Direct page and choose from thousands of products.
