02. Case Study: Songhees First Nation

Songhees First Nation selects Think to provide comprehensive Managed IT Solution for Wellness Center.
We chose Think to provide our Managed IT needs because of their culture of “people first” and their interest in developing a long-term partnership. Think’s genuine concern for our needs, consistent performance, and knowledgeable yet approachable staff is why I have no hesitation in recommending their services.
