“ Dan may be the hardest worker at xByte. You can send him an email at any time of the day and you will get a response within an hour. I don’t think he sleeps. He truly embodies the xByte spirit of being responsive to your customers (both internal and external).” Ryan Brown, xByte Technologies CEO

Memorable customer story
A customer had originally ordered an N3048EP-ON switch from Dell that was needed in a critical infrastructure replacement. Dell had a parts shortage that was delaying the project. Dan was able to provide the customer with the quantity of N3048EP-ON switches that were needed and uplift the warranty to meet all the customer’s needs. The customer was not only able to complete the project on time, but ahead of schedule. They were so thankful and continue to buy switches and infrastructure from xByte to fulfill all their IT needs.
“I oversee the purchasing of all our networking equipment at our organization. We are not the largest company of around 70 staff members (and growing), but Dan always provides timely responses and advice when it comes to equipment purchases. This is something that I think many companies nowadays have lost when it comes to customer service. I very much appreciate the support and enjoy working with their team as a whole.” - Brett, Global Shipping Company
