PITTSBURGH — Dagostino Electronic Services (DES) is a leader in western Pennsylvania for the design and installation of communication solutions for companies and organizations large and small.

Named one of Pittsburgh’s fastest growing companies in 2017 for the second year in a row, customer support and satisfaction is DES’ No. 1 priority.

With depth of experience in areas of cabling, fiber optics, voice, data, multimedia, cybersecurity, security and surveillance, DES self-performs all design, installation and service work.

“I look at Dagostino Electronic Services as a full-service IT company,” said Chuck Roberts, vice president at DES. “We can provide all the things that people don’t realize are operating in their office from the cabling to the multimedia technologies to the security cameras that caught them as they were pulling into their parking lot.”

DES is large enough to support simultaneous multiple-room installation projects, assigning an experienced project manager to each.

From the start, DES will collaborate with each customer to identify a customized solution, meeting with management and frontline users alike to fully understand the company’s overall strategic direction and day-to-day activities.

When the work is complete, DES is there to train staff and providing ongoing support.

“We believe we are a very customer-centric organization,” President Bob Dagostino explained, continuing, “From the beginning of conceptual design of their needs throughout the implementation as well as the ongoing service and support that is necessary to keep them online.”

DES’ multi-department approach to designing, installing and servicing complex communication solutions makes it a leader in the industry.

The trusted and preferred technology provider of the Pittsburgh Steelers, DES has a wide customer base from K-12 and higher education institutions and districts to healthcare and hospitality to government agencies and municipalities.

In 2017, DES was named one of Pittsburgh’s Top Workplaces by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
