    For years, Ive used CDW for everything but stopped after a falling out recently.

    Im currently looking for another software distributor to purchase BES user licenses. Anyone have any good dealings with another company?

    Why not just through RIM? I bought all of our licenses through their online software store.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I know you had a falling out with CDW, but they do always provide prices lower than anyone else. I just had TMO quote a upgrade key from PRO to BES and they were $300 more expensive than CDW.

    You should try switching account reps at CDW...I had a horrible one and never used them. Then I switched and I haven't been happier.

    RIM is always more expensive

    I only pay $368 for 5 BES user licenses but RIM wants like $429 for the same license package.

    I use Insight all the time. Insight bought Software Spectrum so you have multiple resources and great pricing. Email me i can set you up with the rep. brooksdavid at gmail dot com.

    I ended up going with PCMall . com

    They have competative pricing and will beat any competitor's price.
    I got my blackberry enterprise CAL 5users for $358, ten bucks cheaper than CDW and Insight wanted $375

    Thanks for your help

    I used to always deal with Insight and CDW, but I got fed up with not being able to contact my rep. I got a call from a small company called Dragora Technologies and the guy actually sold me. Now I just get the model number from another site and call Dragora to get it cheaper.

    I check prices every once in a while and Dragora always beats CDW and Insight and it's a small shop so I always get superfast attention...only got his voicemail once so far. One other thing...at least for me...we get our equipment faster than before. They advertise that if you give them a CDW or Insight quote that they will beat it, often significantly.

    Give it a shot...the guy seems very honest...I can't complain. Give him a call.

    I've got a great rep from Insight already and I'm working on deals with CDW. They'll work with ya. PCMall interesting. I'll check them out. A little competition never hurt the consumer.

    Which is it $368 or $358? I went to PC Mall and they were $375.

    I called my guy at Dragora out of curiosity and it was $366 for 5U and $591 for 10U...that beats Insight, CDW and PCMall. Here's the number if anyone is interested...856-931-0074....or, feel free to pay more, whatever...just trying to help.
