About CDS

Proudly Serving our Customers and Local Communities Since 1996.

CDS is your Premier Technology Provider. We service the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic locally, with Nationwide and Global Support through our Industry Leading Partners.

Our History

We started over 25 years ago in lower Manhattan with four sales reps utilizing temporary office space. Today, CDS has eight offices and about two-hundred employees across six states and our nation's capital. During our geographic expansion over the years, CDS also transformed from a Xerox Agent to a full-service provider. Beyond Epson, HP, Kyocera, Sharp, and Xerox copiers and laser printers, CDS offers a full suite of copier service and technology solutions ranging from managed print services, to managed IT services, and project-based IT services, providing our customers a single source for all their business technology needs.

Our Commitment

To Our Customers

From our inception to present, our customers have always been our top priority. We pledge to always offer an unparalleled copier service to our customers, recommending the best solutions to fit their office technology needs. Whether it’s providing a feature rich multifunction printer, assisting with IT infrastructure support, or mitigating high print costs associated with network printers, CDS will provide the right solution, while recognizing that not all businesses are an ideal fit for CDS.

To Our Employees

CDS fosters a workplace environment that is competitive, but supportive. Veteran sales representatives are always willing to aid their colleagues.

Be it a senior business development account executive working with a junior sales person on a proposal, or a junior technician mentoring a new hire, we are a true team. Service, Billing, Customer Support, and Sales all come together to deliver an award-winning customer experience.

Our Future

CDS has quickly grown to be one of the largest independent document and information technology providers in the United States with locations in NYC, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Baltimore and beyond.

As we look forward to the future, we continue to invest heavily in our people, technology, product, and service offerings to ensure we continue to provide the best customer, partner, and employee experiences possible.

Our goal is to provide unrivaled support to your organization by bringing together industry experts dedicated to solving your biggest technology challenges.
