After more than two months of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s likely that your business has gotten into a rhythm with remote work. However, while we don’t know specifically when the pandemic will end, it will certainly conclude at some point – do you know how your business will proceed then?

This is why outsourced IT services are the better choice. With outsourced IT services, you’ll have access to a team of IT experts with a breadth and depth of tech knowledge and experience. The bottom line is that outsourced IT services give you access to a team of experienced and knowledgeable IT experts— can you get the same from an in-house IT staff?
My philosophy when starting OTT was I wanted to create a place that I would want to work at (fun and friendly.) Where there was no corporate politics and we could just do our job fixing things and helping people. We can help people with their technology and not be arrogant or condescending to people. We can actually make a difference in peoples lives and not just say it but do it.
