We have found them to be an extremely reliable and customer-focused organization that has allowed us to serve users in mission-critical situations, users such as emergency responders.

They provide us with Infrastructure/Platform as a Service (I/PaaS) solutions that have become the mainstay of some of our operations.
Private Digital Network Services (PDNS) was founded on the premise of cooperatively developing an ecosystems of industry-leading solution providers invited to leverage the vast resources and reach of the nationally-recognized Gannett Corporation’s Private Digital Network (PDN). Private Digital Network Services sprang from the desire to extend the PDN to partners in a cooperative services model.

GIS is the primary unified collaborations solutions partner in this ecosystem, a relationship managed under a cooperative services agreement with PDNS.
