Having honorably served in the U.S. Armed Forces overseas, Paul Morrison, the founder of pmIT Consulting returned to civilian life in 2002.
Being a natural-born computer geek and the go-to person for all things technical, the message about Paul's uncanny ability to quickly resolve computer and electronics problems spread like wildfire. Soon enough, neighbors, friends, family and small businesses owners alike began calling to ask for assistance with their tech gadgets.
In less than 90 days, Paul had built the beginnings of a long-term client base and realized that the next natural step was to establish an official business. That same year, Paul met and married his current wife and they moved from New York City to Southeast MA to advance her career and to embrace a suburban-style family life.
With the advent of secure remote control capabilities, pmIT's New York City customers were happy to learn that pmIT would be able to continue providing exceptional IT support, even from 200+ miles away! In fact, Paul still travels to New York City once per month to visit his long-standing customers on-site.
After arriving in MA in 2003, without any previous contacts or customers in the region, Paul turned to Craigslist to advertise his services. To his surprise, he received a call within 10 minutes of posting the first ad! A media company in Cranston, RI needed to recover business data from a broken storage device. This company unintentionally stored all of its data on a RAID-0 hard drive array, which offered no protection against hard drive failures, and without a working backup copy! The entire business could have been irreperably devastated if this information could not be retrieved. Luckily, after a few days of tireless 24/7 data recovery, pmIT was able to recover all of the data (4 Terabytes of video!) that would otherwise have been lost.
After completing the project, pmIT began receiving calls from multiple businesses in Providence and other areas of Rhode Island and Massachusetts who were all word-of-mouth referrals from pmIT's first local customer. Needless to say, we are still friends with and working together to ensure that the RI media company's operations are running smooth and without interruptions.
Fast forward to today -- pmIT has provided IT help to 50+ small businesses in many local towns of RI (Warwick, Providence, Newport, Narraganset, Middletown, Wakefield) , MA (Swansea, Fall River, New Bedford, Taunton, Marion, Middleboro, Raynham and Easton), CT and the 5 boroughs of New York City.
Our goal is to sustain growth and become a premier managed IT services provider without sacrificing on our unwavering values of old-fashioned service, trust and integrity.
