Friends, from time to time, we will feature a small, woman-owned, or minority-owned (SWaM) company that does business with UVA. Our intent is to introduce you to the variety of businesses in our area as well as to the strength their diversity brings to our community. We invite you to get to know them!
Today’s feature firm is GovSmart.
GovSmart, an Information Technology procurement company at the top of their game (quite literally), is a local minority-owned, 8(a) Certified, HUBZone Certified, Small Disadvantaged Business that proudly serves the world from their offices nestled near Charlottesville’s historic downtown district. If you are in need of a flawlessly functioning mix of laptops, tablets, workstations, wireless networks, printers, servers, storage, switches, and security hardware to meet the many innovative technology needs of your work environment(s), GovSmart is a great first stop!
Why? Recently, GovSmart was officially recognized as the ‘Fastest Growing Computer Hardware Company’ in the USA by INC Magazine. What’s more? They are the 102nd fastest growing private company overall in the USA, #5 in Virginia, and #1 overall in Charlottesville (growth measured over the last three years)!
What’s that mean to you? With access to over 50 distribution warehouses and logistic centers across the United States, GovSmart offers a wide variety of IT solutions and products from all of the leading manufacturers, such as HP, NetApp, EMC, Microsoft, Ruckus Wireless, Symantec, Dell, Apple, Cisco, Check Point, Adobe, F5, SolarWinds, and Brocade.
