Client Success

I have been working closely with Smart Dolphins for just over a year now, since IT starting reporting in to me. I have very limited IT experience and therefore knew I’d have to lean on them tremendously. They are professional and knowledgeable and always quick to respond to any our needs, big or small. Our business is always evolving which brings new IT challenges to the table regularly. Smart Dolphins never bat an eye with our ever-changing needs and just bare down and the get the job done for us. We are very grateful to have them on our team.

The ROI of Managed IT

We all know, “You get what you pay for”. It’s a cliché, rule of thumb that we can loosely apply to many things in life. Of course, it doesn’t always work that way. You can pay a lot for something and not get value out of it. That said, the Rule does...
