Matt Hyatt, CEO, RocketIT
Rocket IT is the outsourced IT department for all kinds of businesses, providing the strategy, security, and support needed to help organizations thrive. The organization virtually manages all of its clients’ day-to-day technology requirements for a flat monthly fee, with no contracts to tie them down.
With businesses becoming more dependent on technology every day, it’s almost impossible for companies to keep up with all the complexity. It’s more than one internal IT person can handle, and it requires more strategic insight than most IT support companies offer. That’s where Rocket IT comes in.
Rocket IT’s unique three-pronged approach includes 1) services built around the people instead of technology, 2) real strategic foresight, not just break/fix hindsight, and 3) a better way to ensure trust and accountability.
Rocket IT gives small businesses the capability of a full IT department, with a 98% client satisfaction rate and a 25- year track record of helping people thrive. Since 1995, Rocket IT has helped businesses meet their goals through the effective use of technology. Today, the organization actively supports a long list of growing companies in diverse industries including finance, healthcare and manufacturing.
