The CPF/ISV/Hardware Alliance Solution  (more than 15 years in development)

Our goals are simple


  • Save time

  • Save money

  • Provide coordinated software and hardware support

  • Deliver ISV certified products

  • Safeguard all data in our HIPAA compliant service center

  • Maximize the return on software and hardware investment through productivity and uptime


The Problem: 

Most ISV's would prefer not to become involved with managing the hardware needs of their clients.  However, many ISV's prefer to certify  their solutions on platforms best suited for their applications, and provide needed guidance to their clients.  Typically, hardware is outside of the ISV's core focus, the products are ever changing, the margins can be difficult, and support can absorb valuable time and resources.


It's time to partner with CPF.  


The Solution: 

CPF has developed a suite of ISV programs to address the hardware problems that face the ISV's.

  •  Pre and post-sale technical support

  •   Authorized Warranty and Non-warranty repair through the CPF Service Center
