About Us

IT that works for you
Forward Intellect IT is a managed services company created by two consultants that found themselves constantly saying "we can do that better", so we decided to move forward and have been working with small and mid-sized businesses ever since.

A large part of "doing a better job" is about listening, interpreting and applying common sense. After spending nearly 40 years in IT at top consulting firms working with the largest Manufacturing, Pharma/Healthcare and Consumer Packaged Goods companies we can back up our experience and leverage that knowledge to support your needs for your company.

If you are upgrading your infrastructure, deploying a workforce, implementing cloud solutions or trying to better leverage your current in-house teams, we can provide the leadership and technical know-how for short-term projects or long-term managed services support.

...and we are happy to do it!!

Who we are and why we do what we do.
We truly enjoy what we do every day. Working with new clients and helping them realize they're not alone and they can get their passion back by doing what they do best and letting us do what we do best. IT Operations, management, customer service, vendor management, you name it we have seen it and will work to improve and streamline while eliminating wasteful spend.

  • IT service management makes sure that all (internal) customers are able to access the network and devices are working as expected. Today it's not only about if IT is on, but adding value to your organization’s business goals to enable the business without being limited by technology.

  • Discussing a client’s strategy for technology and building the overall plan consisting of objectives, principles and tactics relating to its use within the organization is a fundamental building block to successfully leveraging and integrating such a critical component.

  • Not losing sight that strategies primarily focus on the technologies themselves, by partnering with you and being in a trusted role, we help make sure the people who directly manage those technologies can align with the organizational vision.

What some of our clients say

Griffin Beverage CoWhat’s been the single biggest benefit to you and your company since having us take over your IT: ""Streamlining our systems, identify and prioritize which direction/equipment we should focus on so as not to rebuild the entire system all at once and helping to navigate the Office 365 sign up procedure, deployment and management"

What do you feel we do better than other IT firms: "We don’t have much experience with other IT firms, but directions and suggestions, along with what the anticipated costs was a definite help to us."

If someone were on the fence about working with us, what would you tell them: "These guys know their stuff, and are very helpful in the implementation"

Adding Value | Strategy | Partnering & Building Trust

Three Fundemental Values
