Why Us


Because we work with clients in a variety of industries including education, finance, healthcare and private business, we are in contact with personal, financial or other confidential information. We treat every customer, no matter the size, with absolute confidentiality. We believe that building a relationship based on trust is the only way to do business.


We pride ourselves in developing relationships with our clients by explaining in simple terms what is needed and just as importantly, what is not needed. Many IT providers are looking to make the quick buck by selling services whether they are needed or not. We take the time to explain what options are available to best fit your needs as well as your budget. We also understand that there is not a cookie cutter solution that will fit every company, but instead each requires its own unique solution.


The key to providing effective solutions is knowledge. Many of our new customers start the conversation with something like “I had a friend that is good with computers look at it, and now it doesn’t work at all.” Unfortunately just because someone “is good with computers” does not mean they have the training necessary to solve real world business problems. We have a degreed Electrical Engineer as well as a degreed System Administrator on staff. We also make sure we are staying current with the latest certifications that will help our customers.
