IT SolutionsIT Solutions takes a different approach than most IT companies. At ITS, every employee doesn’t just act like an owner, every employee is an owner. Not just through stock options or public stock that anyone can buy. ITS employees own actual stock in the business through our Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). When ITS succeeds, they succeed. And every ITS employee knows that ITS only succeeds when our clients succeed.

Our employee-owners understand how a business operates, what’s important to an organization’s success, and how to control costs. And they apply those principles every day when it comes to your technology. We believe quick fixes to IT problems leave too much room for bigger headaches – and costs – down the road. As our name says, we’re in business to provide long-term, comprehensive solutions for your IT needs that put your company in a position to prosper.

Give us a problem, and we’ll look at it from every angle – technical, economic, strategic – before presenting you with a solid, cost-effective solution. We do this by making sure we’re in tune with your business goals. By hiring only the best certified consultants, by refining our systems and procedures every day, by developing better ways to serve you, by constantly innovating, we strengthen our business and yours.

At IT Solutions we believe that we all succeed together, our company, our employees, and you.
