Joining forces under one name: Tridea Partners will become Columbus

Tridea Partners will be operating under the name Columbus by November 1, 2018.

Columbus has been our parent company since January of 2017, and we are now transitioning our name and branding to further join forces as one company. You may have already noticed this in some of our communications, including email signatures from employees, invoices, and other branded correspondence.

What does this mean for you, as a Tridea customer?

It’s just a change to our name! Our mission is to enhance the lives of our employees and customers by working together to provide quality business solutions. Together as Columbus, we will continue to help companies around the country to transform their business and mitigate risk, all while building lasting relationships.

Customers will not see a change to our overall services and team, while these changes will affect branded communication and anywhere else the Tridea Partners logo does appear.

What will NOT be changing?

The Services

We will continue to offer the same services and support that you’ve trusted your business with us under. In fact, the connection with Columbus will enable us to provide your business with additional services and opportunities to network with more resources and fellow users.

The People

You will continue to work with the same people you have known from Tridea Partners, along with a few new faces as we continue to grow.

Our name may be changing, but the people you have come to know and trust and the service that we provide will remain the same. We are excited for this transition, as it will allow us to continue to offer you the best support as your chosen Microsoft Partner.

What is changing?

Follow our new channels

We will be retiring our Tridea Partners social media accounts and will instead be posting through Columbus! Don’t miss out on any valuable information, and start following them now:
