data-processing agents, informatics agents, agents for computer products


Explanation:
I think that it is as simple as this. they sell computer related stuff mainly as middlemen. "Courtier " usually is translated by "broker", but "data-processing broker" sounds funny in English

Consultants and Borkers of Business (Computer) Applications


Explanation:
Not brokers for computers, but for business software, perhaps? This would seem more along the lines that a consulting firm might offer. Good luck.

Explanation:
I agree with Heathcliff and would use (especially if found on letterhead) "Information-technology Brokers and Consultants". Sounds like they sell computer software then help you install and/or troubleshoot, or they devise custom applications as needed.
