Onsite IT Service

Onsite IT Service

Soho is your trusted information technology solution provider – serving Los Angeles, New York City, and Southern CA…and connecting the world.

Soho has developed an IT service that solves a major operational problem for many companies:

  • Ensures reliable IT support for a broad variety of technical problems
  • Provides competent, accessible help desk support for employees
  • Resolves emergencies outside of business hours
  • Develops strategic IT initiatives
  • Supports home offices and remote locations
  • Operates proactively with IT solutions, rather than only in reactive or maintenance mode
  • Maintains a fixed IT support budget

Soho’s Onsite IT Service provides the best of both worlds – onsite support and highly trained technicians who understand your business environment and know your people.

With Onsite IT Service you never have to worry about the cost of hiring an IT technician. We provide an IT expert at your office for a predetermined period every day, typically six hours. Someone is always onsite who knows your business; no sick days, no vacation days, no benefits or overtime to pay – just expert IT services specifically for your company.

Soho IT technicians come with solid experience and certifications. Once assigned to your company, they are cross-trained and rotated with other Soho technicians who have other technical specialties, providing varying skill sets to your company for a single fee. This allows several technicians to become familiar with a client’s corporate culture and technology needs. In addition, urgent needs can be handled simultaneously – both in-house and remotely.
