SoSol Consulting is available – at any time – by phone, Internet, and for face-to-face meetings to guarantee a client's business is never interrupted by a technology breakdown. We are known for our ability to work "invisibly," allowing for minimal disruption of your business.
We can build complete IT hardware and software systems from the ground up, or we can upgrade your existing equipment. We offer end-to-end support for the full spectrum of your IT needs, allowing you to phase out one-shot consultants who lack a true understanding of your system, your business, and your goals. In a pinch we will even take the trash out. That's the kind of people we are.
