Our Difference


A Better Approach to Managing Small Business IT

The right process and the right people are the key to achieving the results your organization needs. 


Diligent Improvement for Better Outcomes

If you are unhappy with the results of your current IT solution, the problem isn’t just the symptoms you’re experiencing, like unproductive systems and assumed security risk. The root cause is the process. Or usually, a lack of one.

Where IT focus goes determines the results that a client will get. It’s not enough to just fix broken equipment, deploy tools, and then hope for the best. Business-grade IT requires diligent improvement – a consistently followed schedule of proactivity and planning. A focus on diligent improvement means concentrating on the results to the organization – higher productivity, lower risk, and IT that evolves with the changes in your organization.


Perform Proactive Audits & Maintenance

If you don’t assess the gaps between your current and desired states, how are you going to get where you want to go? Regularly scheduled auditing and maintenance of the IT environment, scheduled at least 12 months in advance, informs a prioritized improvement plan.

Design a Prioritized IT Plan​

Our plans come with clear organization reasons why something should or should not be done, a targeted timeframe, and clarity on the effort involved. All work is thoroughly communicated and transparently executed, so you know what’s happening in every step.

Implement & Drive The Plan For You

There’s no need to track us down – we’ll drive the plan to completion. You’ve got enough to worry about with running your own organization. You shouldn’t also have to be the Chief Information Officer, Helpdesk Technician, Proactive Maintainer, Software Tools Master, and IT Project Manager. We own these roles so you can stay focused on what you do best.

Customer Service & Experience

Our core values purposefully lead with “Take care of the client.” We recognize that, without our customers, there would be no opportunity to practice what we love every day. When you work with us, you’ll feel this value in action. Our goal is not just to fix your problem or implement our process but also to make it an enjoyable experience.

Accountable to You

We quickly take ownership of existing IT pitfalls, understand the cause and effect, and strive to take thoughtful approaches to remediation and prevent future disruption. We consider the impacts that technology changes could have on your organization’s operations, your finances, and your organization’s productivity. Technology is like a game of chess, requiring thought beyond the next move. When a change is made to your configuration, it should happen with knowledge of the overall design and to avoid a short-sighted “band-aid fix.”

Reliable, Enthusiastic Service

We make sure a capable person is there when you’re in need. We hate support structures that restrict you to only leaving a voicemail, forcing a chat conversation, or providing email-only support. Our knowledgeable technicians respond to inbound emergency calls eager to resolve your issue and answer your questions. For requests that aren’t urgent or those you’d like to have resolved without a call, you’ll still receive the same excellent support experience by using our support email address or by filling out our support request form.

Transparent & Responsive

We set and manage expectations clearly and often. With our service, gone are the times when you submit a support request and then wait hours or days with no follow-up. Nothing is worse than having to wonder, “when will someone respond?”, “did they see my request?”, or “do they understand this is important?”. We’ve felt that, too, and appreciate responsiveness and knowing our problem will be solved. We recognize that it’s the little things that add up to a big difference with any service.

The Basics Done Right

Fantastic IT is demonstrated through carrying out the fundamentals brilliantly. It’s not just about using the latest tools. It’s about using a proactive IT solution that understands your organization, cuts through the technology noise with expert guidance, is there when you need it and melts into the background as your organization delivers on the promise you made to your customers.

Predictable Results

Operational Excellence

You can feel when things are working well and when they are not. Long delays for support, inadequate planning, and a lack of proactive maintenance are symptoms of a deficiency in the right people and the right process. If you haven’t had a good experience with other IT providers, the reason is that either their people or their process wasn’t what it needed to be. Try a different approach with a team built to execute a process that can move the needle in your business.

By having the right people and the right process driving IT, you’ll have better security, better productivity, and better planning.


Experience You Can Rely On

We’ve seen great IT and terrible IT. Our team has hundreds of thousands of hours of experience across numerous industries. This guides our unique approach to strategic planning, detail-oriented system design, proactive maintenance processes, and commitment to providing a level of responsiveness that is highly regarded in our industry.

We’re Here to Help – For the Long-term

We’re committed to a lasting partnership that promotes dialogue to solve complex issues and takes technology and your organization in a new direction.

Organized, scheduled, and consistent execution of a well-informed plan with the right people delivers a consistent and reliable result. You can expect more productivity from your team and less security risk to the organization.
