As some of you may know, NPI acquired 3D Corporation in Bellingham in November. As I meet with customers in both locations over the last several months the most common question I hear is “Why did you buy that particular company”.
3D Corporation is virtually a mirror image of NPI. They have been in IT consulting for 30+ years, they have roughly 15 employees, and they are committed to great customer service, for these reasons it felt like a really good fit. Additionally, there was enough difference in the services offered that it allowed us to expand the services we offer to all our clients.
For clients in Kent market, we can now offer a comprehensive security suite including assessing, auditing, remediation for multiple compliance standards such as NIST, PCI, and HIPAA. We’ve already helped several NPI client with compliance issues, not to mention a couple of companies with remediation assistance. An additional value our Bellingham team brings is a deep background in managed IT Services. They have a very mature service offering allowing us to offer fixed price IT support to our clients.
In Bellingham, we can now offer a full suite of cloud solutions. These include VoIP phone systems, SIP trunks, transport options, both public access and private access. This means if you have a phone system that you are budgeting for replacement this is now something 3D Corporation can help you with regardless if you want to keep the phone system on premise or have it hosted in the cloud. SIP trunks, this is just a fancy way of saying “phone lines”, these are virtual phone lines running over public or private connections. Transport sometimes throw people, this traditionally is your Internet service. If you have multiple locations we can build a private network between all of these sites, along with providing low latency routes to Microsoft O365, Azure, and Amazon cloud services.
We are working really hard to combine all of our systems, so there may be some bumps along the way as we integrate systems, so please be patient with us as we work on our back end systems. If we do make a mistake please contact us and let us know, we’ll get it fixed right away.
From all of us at 3D Corporation, and NP Information Systems, we want to thank you for allowing us to serve your organization.
