ABOUT SIMPLIFIED IT SOLUTIONS, INC.

Simplifying the Use of IT

for Businesses since 1993

Simplified IT Solutions was founded in 1993 with a not-so-simple mission: strengthen the use of computer and networking technology for small and medium-sized businesses but in a way that was easy and pain-free. In the 90s, we helped companies automate operations and share data in innovative ways, opening up new opportunities.

As Internet use exploded, Simplified introduced businesses to email, websites and more efficient ways of communicating and transacting business, minus the hassle and confusion that often goes along with new technology. Business and economies continue to be transformed by, and depend upon, information technology.

Simplified is evolving with these technologies to help its clients prosper by building and maintaining more efficient systems as well as inputting safeguards, such as security and data protection. Companies today have a lot riding on their IT systems and cannot afford costly mistakes, unexpected problems and bad advice. Simplified IT Solutions has repeatedly proven through its customer-intimate business model that the right IT solution makes all the difference.​

The company’s mission of simplifying the use of information technologies in business continues to address the important needs of companies striving to succeed, despite global competition and faltering economic conditions. The depth of experience and breadth of knowledge brought by Simplified fills a critical need every business has in this information age. Our expert team becomes your partner in growth and success.
