Preactive IT Helps Us Move The Company Forward

At the end of the day, I need a trusted business advisor to help me make informed decisions so I can keep our firm growing. Preactive IT Solutions has given me improved flexibility, has reduced my monthly costs and helps us move the company forward. We want to concentrate on what we do and leave the IT things to someone else. We need it to work. We have found that with Charles Swihart and Preactive IT Solutions.

The biggest benefit we have experienced after switching to Preactive IT Solutions

Their prompt response to any issue whether it’s over the phone or in-person. They have been much more transparent than our past IT Service company when communicating about cost service and issue resolution.
