Why Us?

We have developed several products to accompany our services. Some of those solutions include complimentary offsite backup systems, monitoring and maintenance tools that prevent major failures from happening and provide fast recovery in case they do.

We do not affiliate with vendors

We are IT consultants and not salespeople. Over the years our policy has been to stay neutral to vendors and providers. Are you an Apple fan - great, then so are we! You don't like Lenovo products? No problem. We always provide objective recommendations. If we recommend something, it is because we like that product and not because we get paid to sell it.

Fast Repairs

Our technicians can fix 95% of the problems by immediately taking control of your system from our office.
If there's a problem that requires a site visit, we will immediately send help over.

We Speak Like You

If you have problems with your system or have questions, you can ask us and we will answer in plain English, without technical terms or jargon.

Fixed Quotes

Our final invoice will be the same as our quote - no surprises at the end.
