Adding our solutions to Alternative Technology’s GSA Schedule will allow us to better serve that marketplace,” said Henning Volkmer, chief operating officer, ThinPrint. “Our software allows users to save on bandwidth cost, utilize their servers more efficiently, save on administration and make their users work more productively.
