About Us

Our technical expertise and services have evolved with the marketplace, always with an emphasis on VALUE to the client. We understand the need for stable and reliable technology, for protection from virus and malware threats, and addressing growing performance demands. Our first step is always developing a plan that makes sense, that adds value, and is one that you can trust. Our 35 years in business demonstrates our personal commitment to customer service, we love it – we live it!We scale our service levels to match your needs, your skill set, and your budget to develop solutions you can believe in.We are your IT department, and strive to be your most valuable employee.


We understand all the processes in which it takes to build and maintain a new or current business, especially when it comes to technology. Our schedules will always attempt to marginalize and coincide in keeping business down time at an absolute minimum.


We do not believe in a contractual basis when it come’s to maintenance and labor of products. You bought them, we maintain them with base fee’s when you deem necessary. Although, it is suggested that most systems and hardware should be checked at least tri-monthly.


We stand by our products. In the tech world there can be many malfunctions, but our relationships with manufacturers make the handling of replacement parts covered by our warranty easy and smooth.
