Hi! We are three technology professionals who began to forge a path in the world of small-business tech support and consulting. The three of us (Marjorie, Jonathan, and Justin) crossed paths while working at IBM and quickly realized that we were all passionate about bringing large company solutions to the small business market. Whether we were helping large companies define their technology strategies or implementing innovative technology solutions, we knew that companies of every size could benefit and decided to act. Jonathan and Justin are the “tech guys” bringing strategy and consulting experience to the team. Marjorie uses her sales and business background to advise clients on how to save money and focus on increasing revenue.
