What is Managed I.T. Services?

We Deliver Proactive Maintenance Services Through Flat-rate Managed IT Services

Designed to reduce your costs, increase your productivity and mitigate your business risks, we partner with you as your IT Department, allowing you to focus on running your business, not your technology.

Our relationship begins with evaluating your current state of technology, including infrastructure, hardware and line-of-business applications and Vendors. We work with you to identify your critical business processes, pain points and vulnerabilities, and perform a threat analysis to determine your business risks. Completing this process allows us to design a managed services technology plan that aligns with your long-term business goals.


We become an extension of your business, and true partner. Because our service plans are based on a flat monthly fee allowing you the ability to budget your IT costs annually, we assume both the financial and technical risks in our relationship. This fuels our commitment to continuously identify and deliver solutions that improve your efficiencies and reduce downtime – as a true partner should.


Our comprehensive Server support includes remote and onsite server support services at a flat, monthly rate. There are no ‘per incident’ charges. Proactive maintenance prevents downtime and give you peace of mind knowing your servers are monitored 24/7.
