For decades, Par3.IT has provided end-to-end technical solutions to small and mid-size businesses. We are known for our quality, innovation, and cost-consciousness. Our best advertising comes from our many satisfied clients.
Par3.IT was formed in 2003 from three separate companies. These three companies are the original “3 Partners” or “Par3” of our name.
- Fred Alonzi Technical Consulting, a business specializing in technology planning, system evaluations and disaster recovery since 1993.
- MAPeterson Consulting, a business specializing in PC and Network installation and maintenance since 1999.
- CU*Online, a Web design and maintenance business since 1999.
Par3.IT continues to grow in size and in offerings to meet the demanding technology needs of its forward-thinking client base. In 2004, Par3.IT added Hawks IT Consulting, a company that specializes in Enterprise solutions such as email, anti-spam/anti-virus, and security. In 2007, Par3.IT strengthened its core PC and network maintenance services by adding SCBIT, Inc.
We continue to strive to provide the best of our core competencies:

What should you look for in an IT partner?
We know how important and difficult selecting an IT vendor can be. There are so many things to be conscience of and it’s difficult seeking an expert for a field that you’re not an expert in. Please use the check-list we’ve compiled to aid you in selecting your next IT partner.
How much experience do the technicians have?
What type of network and systems management/administration experience do they posses? What types of business or industry do they have experience supporting? Par3.IT has decades of experience working with both online start-ups as well as highly regulated businesses in well-scrutinized fields. We understand each business has its own unique set of challenges and needs. Our desire is to sculpt your IT strategy around your existing business plans and strategies.
What will communication with your IT Partner be like?
How does your technology partner communicate with you and respond to your needs? Does your technology partner share documentation, passwords, and knowledge or do they keep this information from you to increase your dependency on them? Par3.IT takes interaction with our partners very seriously. We always have an experienced staff member on call. We make documentation easily accessible and will answer and and all questions you have about your IT
Implementation and support go hand and hand, but not every technology firm will handle these with equal importance. Par3.IT is there every step of the way from the design, implementation, training, post-support, documentation, and everything in between. We understand everything that’s involved in properly executing and managing your technology plan.
How do they handle the security of your data and your customer's data?
Par3.IT handles all customer data with security as the #1 priority. We work within industries that are heavily regulated and as a result our work is checked and tested by 3rd parties to verify our configuration is secure. Not only does our work pass the checks, but we are continually complemented by auditors on how we handle security, and you can be assured that we will put your security at the forefront of your technology infrastructure.
Can you trust your IT Partner?
Your IT partner will likely have access to all your data. Do you know who you’re working with? Par3.IT has an incredible list of reputable references. We work with clients that not only have a wealth of private data and sensitive information, but we are charged with handling this data to the most stringent requirements of their regulated industries. Par3.IT submits to background checks upon request.
Most IT vendor can provide great initial benefits. But do they understand all risks associated with various technologies they implement? Are they INSURED to work with your valuable data? Par3.IT understands risks of the technology we deploy and will not only inform you of risks that are present in your current network, but also help you make informed decisions that will give you the right balance of cutting edge and safe risk management. Par3.IT is BONDED AND INSURED and carries a $1,000,000 ERRORS AND OMISSIONS policy so you can trust you and your customers’ data is in safe hands.
What are the rates?
“You get what you pay for” is only half true. While you aren’t going to get professional, experienced information technology consulting from an amateur with dirt cheap rates, you won’t necessarily get top results from someone charging top rates. Par3.IT provides competitive rates, several levels of technicians, and accurate estimates. We offer both “best guess” estimates as well fixed bid/not to exceed bids. Our secure extranet allows you to track your project to see detailed information of work performed and watch the project progress.
Beware of the low bid and always compare “total cost”, not just the hourly rate. Also, be aware a task that may take a lesser experienced tech two hours to complete to may take an experienced professional a fraction the time, giving you lower total costs even if the rate is higher. Par3.IT knows that cost is a key factor, however comparing only rates is tricky since it’s not an apples-to-apples comparison. You have to consider the quality of what is done, what is not considered, and what needs to be done beyond what was estimated.
Will your IT Partner be with you for the long term?
How long will your technology Partner be in business to support yours? Will they be there next year to support what they’ve put in place today? Par3.IT has a strong and healthy business model that has grown over our 15 years of experience. We keep our operating expenses low and the foundation of knowledge that supports us and our customers lies within the individuals who also own Par3.IT so you know we’re here to stay and have a vested interested in your business’s continued success. We keep the correct balance of technicians to support the breadth of our customers in a timely fashion and remain fiscally sound for your peace of mind.
