The services provider has recently helped non-profit organization Breakthru into a business transformation of its ICT environment across 34 locations in New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland.
As part of this project, CompNow introduced Epson's WorkForce Pro RIPS printers to each office and existing laptops were replaced by Microsoft Surface Pro.
