Growth of TechSolutions
Evolving into the quiet leader of Delaware’s IT support service community
Founded in 1999 by two men with extensive IT and Business skills, TechSolutions quietly evolved into the Managed IT Services leader for small to mid-sized businesses in Delaware, Pennsylvania, South Jersey, and Maryland. Utilizing a team of networking, hardware, software, and cybersecurity experts, TechSolutions supports thousands of computer users at some of the most respected and fastest growing companies in the Delaware Valley.
Today, TechSolutions operates the IT industry’s most sophisticated management tools combined with documented best practices to ensure quality service. We collaborate with industry leaders in hardware and software to align our services with an ever-changing and increasingly complex IT landscape. As small and mid-sized businesses, law firms, medical practices, and nonprofit organizations really began to trust us, our reputation grew, and so did the business.
Over time, TechSolutions’ philosophy of managing our clients has changed:
The Past: Break-Fix Services
Just 15 years ago, clients wanted a trusted resource to answer questions and fix computer problems when things broke. This reactive model time and time again displayed its primary weakness: not being proactive.
The Present: Managed Services
We started using sophisticated tools to manage every device on our clients’ networks to prevent problems and better protect their data. This resulted in increased uptime, reliable protection of data, and more stable and predictable IT expenses.
As IT outsourcing for mid-sized businesses grew in popularity, technology for remote management of networks matured. And as the IT environment for small businesses became more complex, Managed IT Services grew in popularity. Today, Managed IT Services is the preferred method of supporting computer users for businesses from 10 to 100 employees.
TechSolutions earned a reputation as reliable, responsive, and knowledgeable as the service quality improved and the industry changed. Our business has focused on helping computer users and office managers by keeping it simple. From being responsive to fixing problems the first time to our clear and easy-to-understand proposals to how we communicate with clients, everything is designed to be easy for the office manager.
We have become the easiest-to-work-with IT firm in the region, a fact we are very proud of. That said, time changes everything. Today, your company’s data is under attack. Ransomware pirates, international competitors, local hackers, and maybe even your own staff threaten your data. Your company’s computer system is systematically under attack. To better protect your business, TechSolutions will continue to investigate new technologies, new tools, and new services for small businesses in our region, because there is so much more we need to do.
