“Community IT has been an integral part of furthering our mission, and their reliable tech support and advice has allowed us to incorporate technology into our programs, and focus on what is
most important to us – providing high quality health care to those most in need.”
“Community IT puts a very high value on customer service. Their staff is highly qualified, and takes their jobs very seriously. We have no other vendor that treats us so well. I would not hesitate to recommend Community IT to friends and colleagues, and have done so in the past.”

“By outsourcing to Community IT, we have been able to stay focused on our mission without getting bogged down in an area that is outside our core business. I was skeptical of outsourcing at first, but it has been a very positive improvement for our entire organization.”
“I serve as the liaison between our organization and Community IT. Their staff at all levels are engaged as well as pro-active, reliable and resolve issues in a timely manner. Community IT provides us with monitoring software that is always running to make sure everything is working smoothly.
