Behind the Scenes of the Dog Show --- Client Spotlight with Westminster Kennel Club

We always love catching up with our clients, both new and old to re-evaluate our processes as an MSP as well as see how their company was able to grow with us and benefit from their IT support.

We spoke with our clients Westminster Kennel Club, who have been a managed client with us for over 20 years. Florence Foti and Linda Duane head operations at Westminster Kennel Club, the world-renowned dog show host. Their company, like many others, have seen a change in location and business over the past few months during the COVID19 pandemic, but this hasn’t stopped their work. We asked them to answer the following questions regarding the pandemic, working with RCS, and the technology they have been using to streamline their business operations.
