Creative Technology Partners – Simplifying your complex IT infrastructure
Creative Technology Partners was founded with one goal in mind: to remove the complexity surrounding wide area networking. For over 30 years, CTP has been designing, implementing and managing complex IT environments for some of the nation’s largest enterprises—while keeping it simple on the client side.
As technology has evolved, so have our capabilities, supported by our exceptional team of client success managers, NOC and advanced engineers. Our strong strategic partnerships in the IT industry have helped us deliver creative solutions to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing marketplace and technical environment.
"Partnering with Creative Technology Partners allowed us to meet critical deadlines in our port upgrade project that was part of a broader retail store re-design. Their flexibility played a critical role in our ability to successfully complete over 400 demarc extensions and circuit installs in just two weeks."
