What makes TeamLogic IT different from other IT businesses?
Most IT providers don’t hear from a customer until something breaks — and at that point, the problem is often critical and is having a huge negative effect on the customer. We will jump into critical situations and help resolve them, but our goal is to build an ongoing relationship with a customer and become an advisor who provides routine maintenance of their systems so that major problems are avoided.
