It’s not about the technology. It’s about the people and their strategic insight on how to develop IT infrastructure.

LET’S WORK TOGETHER

Element Four is a managed IT services company that provides organizations with strategic and focused IT solutions. We don’t simply maintain your infrastructure, we uncover your business needs and customize solutions that allow you to focus on the future.

Strategic Perspective, Focused Approach

Our team strives to thoroughly understand your business, which allows us to provide a more a strategic approach to IT. It’s easy to provide a quote, but what do you really need? What will fuel your business, mitigate risk, and propel your employees to new levels? We architect solutions based on collaboration with your organization that leads to better integration, operational productivity, and efficiency. In short, we help you build a better future.

Many IT companies say they can do it all. We don’t. We focus on a handful of solutions and are the experts in the solutions we utilize. This allows us to build a deeper knowledge of the hardware and software systems we deploy. We partner with leading technology providers including VMware, Microsoft, Veeam, Cisco, Fortinet, and Kaminario.  We utilize the world’s best hosting environment, Switch, for all offsite applications and cloud infrastructure. We are not tied to specific technologies and will never sell you something you don’t need or that can’t stand up to our rigorous standards.
