Our Three Core Principles Impact Everything We Do

Since 1993, Par3.IT has provided end-to-end technical solutions to organizations just like yours. Solutions assuring that your organization runs smoothly, accurately and securely. Solutions that reflect your strategy and fit your budget.

Par3.IT is different from the competition because of our commitment to three core principles: Technology, People, and Value.

 

We want to be your Technology partner for the long term. We support your entire environment so we eliminate the complexity of multi-vendor solutions. Whether it is hardware or software, voice or data, installation or troubleshooting—just one phone call to Par3.IT is all it takes.

We stand behind the technology with great People. We have one of the most experienced staff of technicians in the industry as well as the lowest turnover rate. In addition to this deep experience, our clients tell us that we are great listeners and easy to work with!

Finally, Par3.IT provides a great Value through competitive rates and a catalog of solutions that will fit any budget. And although we partner with some of the biggest names in the industry, we remain vendor neutral to ensure that we provide the most flexible and cost-effective solutions for your organization.

Our History

Par3.IT was formed from three separate companies. These three companies are the original “3 Partners” or “Par3” of our name.

  • MAPeterson Consulting, a business specializing in PC and Network installation and maintenance since 1999.
  • CU*Online, a Web design and maintenance business since 1999.

In 2004, Par3.IT added Hawks IT Consulting, a company that specializes in Enterprise solutions such as email, anti-spam/anti-virus, and security. 

Par3.IT continues to grow in size and in offerings to meet the demanding technology needs of its forward-thinking client base.

F.A.Q.

What Should Your 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 conscious 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?

A company is only as good as its people, and you don’t want to constantly get stuck talking to ineffective, first-tier support.

Ask your IT vendor what type of network and systems management/administration experience their staff possesses. 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.

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.

Par3.IT understands the underlying risks of every technology we deploy, and will not only inform you of the risks in your current network,but also help you make informed decisions to find the right balance between 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.

Is your IT Partner affordable?
“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.

Does your IT Partner communicate clearly?
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 does your IT Partner handle data security?
Security should always be your IT company’s first concern. Your IT company should be your business’ strongest advocate for data safety, especially on behalf of your customers. 

PAR3.IT is passionate about this, and ever vigilant. Many of our clients work within industries that are heavily regulated and as a result, our work is frequently checked and tested by 3rd parties to verify our configuration is secure. 

Not only does our work pass the checks, but we are continually complimented by auditors on how we handle security. You can be assured that we will put your security at the forefront of your technology infrastructure.

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?

Par3IT has a strong and healthy business model that has grown over our 30 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.
