Who We Are

Who We Are

IT Resource delivers technology solutions that simplify IT environments, improve productivity, and reduce costs, allowing you to focus on your business, not IT. Technology is evolving faster than ever and it’s important to have an IT consultant that’s looking out for the best interest of your business. That’s where we come in.

We Like People More Than Computers (And We Love Computers)  Building strong relationships is essential in growing a business. The more we learn about you, the better we can build a solution that aligns with your goals and powers your business forward.

We serve customers throughout the midwest, with a majority located in Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, and Wisconsin.

It Started With Two Engineers

Having worked in a variety of IT consultant roles, Gary and Leo saw a need for businesses to have quality technical services that focused on business goals and growth instead of technology. Their philosophy was simple: guide clients towards quality, long-term IT solutions that work. This later morphed into our brand promise, Putting IT All Together. Together with business, together with people, and together as a solution that lets organizations do what they need to without having to worry about technology.

Keep your business focused on what it does best, and let us handle the rest.
