Christian Brothers Services adds new technology companies to Preferred Vendor Program

Romeoville, Illinois, May 30, 2019—Christian Brothers Services (CBS) announces the addition of three new technology companies to its Preferred Vendor Program bringing streamlined and cost saving solutions to meet the unique needs of its members.

As new technologies continually emerge, organizations require strategy and adaptability to keep up with the ever-changing demand. IT solutions can be daunting for small organizations that do not necessarily have the means to stay attuned to the latest trends, facing the risk of missed opportunity.

The CBS Preferred Vendor program facilitates relationships between members and vendors who provide service outside the scope of CBS’s direct expertise and are complementary to the plans, programs and services currently administrated and provided by CBS.

Three new technology partners joined the program, aiming to help organizations take some of the guesswork out of planning for their technology needs.

President and CEO of CBS. “We are excited to recommend vendors that offer member organizations the opportunity to confidently choose a business that is dedicated to working to meet their specific needs.”

Through the Preferred Vendor Program, CBS will make an initial introduction and remain available to the member and partner, while remaining independent of any agreement between CBS members and the preferred partners.  CBS expects its members and partners will operate in good faith and encourages members to select vendors that will put their needs and those of their organization first.

The Preferred Vendor Program serves as a means to match CBS members with companies believed to provide exceptional service for members’ unique needs.  There is no obligation for a CBS member to use any Preferred Vendor Program products or services.
