“We started our journey when even carrying a small data required big storage, a microprocessor had an internal clock speed of 40 to 80MHz, networks were running on a maximum of 10MB speed and a telephone line was connected to the noisy dial-up modem that created a slow internet connection,” says S. Arshad Raza, the CEO of the company. Navigating through several ups and downs, Premier has been selling Microsoft products and solutions for more than a decade now and possesses an astounding customer retention rate of above sixty percent. “Customer retention rate gives a clear view of how efficiently and effectively we manage to propose, deploy and provide support on Microsoft solutions for years,” adds Raza.

“We have witnessed a score of global mergers over the last two decades and we are growing because we keep ourselves abreast with the latest market trends,” Raza proudly confirms.
If a system integrator is not familiar with local ICT ecology and regulatory environment, then a project reels under cost overrun and irksome delays, and clients mostly cannot bear up with a downtime while migrating to and collaborating with a new environment. Premier’s IT team always actively thinks about its customer’s return on investment while helping them identify their business needs and predetermining operational life time of a proposed solution. Confirming on this, Raza also says, “Cost-effectiveness is an important aspect of our solution. However, as we know that low-cost System Integration is disastrous, we strongly recommend replacement whenever there is a need.”
