About our Partners
Avnet - is one of the world's largest industrial distributors of electronic parts, enterprise computing and storage products and embedded subsystems, creating a vital link in the technology supply chain.
CBTS - is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Cincinnati Bell, Inc. R&K partners with CBTS for data centers and disaster recovery.

Microsoft - Rippe & Kingston has developed a strong relationship with the Microsoft Corporation. Our customers and business partners view Microsoft technology as a key component of our solutions.
Open Source - Although not a vendor in the traditional sense, Open Source Technology is as important if not more important than any single vendor. Open source software is software whose source code is published and made available to the public, enabling anyone to copy, modify and redistribute the source code without paying royalties or fees. Open source code allows us rapidly deliver new features without our law firm clients paying nearly as much as our competition charge for R&D. Two of the more prominent uses of open source in our offering are JAVA and JBoss Application Server.
Sequel - Sequel is now part of help/systems. LMS incorporates Sequel to provide our law firm clients ad hoc queries to executive dashboards via the Web.
