Not just a provider. A trusted advisor.
We work side-by-side with your team on complex IT projects to turn roadmaps into reality. The first step in any project we take on is sitting down with our client to understand their larger business strategy and objectives. Any solution we recommend or implement will have the ultimate goal of meeting those objectives, and our technical experts will work with your teams to make sure everyone understands how the technology being presented adds to the company’s vision.
We believe that each client is unique, and that each client’s conception of value will change over time. New conditions will prevail, new priorities will emerge and new technologies will become affordable. Sustaining value, once it is created, is key. To achieve that, Tech & Main delivers a custom approach specifically designed with your business in mind. But “custom” doesn’t mean costly. We build flexibility right into our solutions. A Tech & Main solution spans not just hardware and software, but all the elements of a business.
Our experienced team of technologists has years of practice spanning infrastructure solutions, Software as a Service (SAAS), cloud computing, and disaster recovery solutions. We understand the challenges facing businesses today – from cyber security risks to remote workforces, from limited resources to an IT staff stretched too thin. Today’s environment presents unique opportunities for organizations that are ready to invest in the right technology. Tech & Main is there to help every step of the way – if you’re ready to move forward in your technology journey, you don’t have to do so alone.
A range of solutions to address your IT challenges.
Our technology experts bring a range of solutions to your most complex IT questions. All of our comprehensive services fall within one of these categories:
IT Strategy: Technology can help companies transform themselves and grow their business – if selected and applied correctly. We help clients that are embarking on change that is heavily technology-dependent to identify the optimal future state of IT, aligned with business needs, and then work with them to implement new tools and processes to help their business move forward.
IT Performance Improvement: Underperforming IT can have significant negative effects on business performance. We work with companies wanting to address their IT efficiency problems to not only reduce costs, but to improve and develop capabilities that enable innovation and agility.
IT Project Effectiveness: We help clients maximize the beneficial results from technology initiatives large and small, including turnaround programs. We will help business leaders evaluate the case for investment, set up projects for success—or get current projects on a better track—to ensure ultimate value when implementing new systems and programs.

- Ongoing support from this consulting firm?
- A consultant who can work with confidential intellectual property (IP)?
- Training or a knowledge transfer from this consultant to help your internal staff?
