Who We Are

Leverage IT is a service company delivering Technology and Education

Exceptional customer service - We go above and beyond to meet our clients' needs, providing personalized attention and support every step of the way.

Technology is always changing - We put a lot of thought and effort into finding ways for our clients to utilize this change for the improvement of their business. We believe technology should always be adding to the business, and we’re committed to doing whatever it takes to make sure that it does.

Education is our passion - We see ourselves as teaching others how to fish, not selling the fish itself. We know that optimal IT can only do so much without a strong understanding of industry best practices, so we ensure our clients are armed with both.
