IT in VT, IT Support

IT Services Company in Vermont

I have been working and involved in information technology services almost my entire life. Beginning my career in information technology around 1999. Starting in 2002, I and two colleagues formed MNM Consulting. We focused heavily on residential and outdoor retail technologies. Many projects included high-speed connectivity, point of sale, and system deployment. Two years later I formed my own consulting firm, NCR & Associates. I found I was able to better serve my customer base and expand the impact I could have on their success. NCR & Associates focused on residential and commercial technologies, everything from desk-side residential support to long-term CIO-level planning. Most importantly, we found success in a multitude of areas in Vermont and around the US. Our clientele spanned from auditors to precious metal refineries. Even the corner store in your neighborhood needed a new point-of-sale system. Wireless was the new hot topic because wired connectivity can be challenging in rural states. Therefore, with the advent of high-speed wireless technologies – we found a need to form NCR & Associates // Wireless in 2010.
