It's all about being an IT partner you can trust

"You’ve all been great, by far my favourite vendor. Which should tell you so much. You folks are technically on the ball, You have long-term technical talent retention, you are professional and responsive, and your fees are very reasonable."

- Sean from Hanscom Federal Credit Union

Fast, efficient and reliable team of experts

We came to Crafty Penguins when our company was experiencing rapid growth. Our website traffic was increasing daily, and we needed someone capable of building a reliable, hardened production environment that could easily scale.

The team of Crafty Penguins was fast and efficient in getting their infrastructure set up and monitoring our production servers. That alone eased a lot of fears of a catastrophic failure on our side. They listened to us to identify the job that needed to get done, and they did it reliably and professionally with great communication throughout the process.

We’ve been working with Crafty Penguins ever since to resolve other issues and implement a series of further enhancements. It’s comforting to know that we’re working with experts that will be there for us when we need them.

A capable and trustworthy partner that allows us to focus on our core business

Having Crafty Penguins manage our systems saves us time so that we can focus on our core business. At the moment, we serve 25,000+ customers with only two of our own staff members.

The team of Crafty Penguins has very in-depth knowledge, is capable of investigating the issues a lot deeper than an average IT provider and is always there for us when we need them.
