About Us


For more than 9 years, Richardson Communications has formed trusted partnerships with clients seeking world-class technology solutions, professional and process-driven implementations, and unmatched customer service. Today, we specialize in four major technology areas: voice, data, cloud/IT services, and business continuity.

At Richardson Communications, we do things a little differently. We invest our time and resources upfront, understanding your entire business before diving into your technology needs. As a result, conversations with our clients center on empowering their businesses, rather than selling technology. And, when it is time to make a purchase, our clients have access to a robust portfolio of technology products and services, plus our proven process for controlling costs and optimizing investments over the entire technology lifecycle.

Let’s discuss how you can control costs, enhance user productivity, and position your business for success. Call 214-377-1743 or email us today!
