Our Company

We're here for you

At Dakota Central, we believe in providing local, reliable service to our customers. We don’t like to brag, but we are proud of our team and the relationships we’ve made with our customers. The most common words we hear describing our customer service are friendly, dependable, and responsive, which we think is pretty fitting. We care about our communities and are committed to providing the best technology available so that you can remain productive, efficient and innovative.

We're here to foster community

We feel that it is important to give back to our customers and communities, which is why we support your children, organizations, and local non-profits. We take pride in bringing people, business, and organizations together. After all, that is what being part of a community is all about!
