Mathe Helps Gallant & Wein Stay Connected And Productive No Matter Where They’re Working From

Gallant & Wein is a family-run, wholesale electrical distributor. They service electrical, datacom, and security contractors across the tri-state area, as well as nationwide through e-commerce.

Their multi-branch business is active every day, working with their customers, and maintaining their productivity, all of which depends on the availability of their IT systems. In order to stay connected to their data and productive during business hours, Gallant & Wein relies on Mathe.

Before working with Mathe, however, Gallant & Wein struggled with an unreliable IT environment, due in large part to their outdated approach to IT management.

““I love Mathe, there’s never a time where they’ve been unreachable, I communicate with them 24/7 when needed. I’ve had several opportunities over the years to switch Mathe out, and I’ve never felt comfortable doing so.””
