Simple Network Consulting
Simple Network Consulting was founded with one primary purpose: to simplify & streamline the procurement and account management process. We come from long and successful careers in IT and telecommunications. This is where we discovered the painful gaps in the process that we are solving for our clients every day.
SNC was founded by Kris Pritchard for one reason: To simplify the painful process of technology procurement and professional services consulting. Kris brings over 15 years of top-level results in all aforementioned areas of information technology in both public and private sectors.
