Specialized Managed IT support for local government.

Specialized Support for Local Government
We understand that local governments don’t operate the same as corporate entities. And with that being said, your technology needs are going to differ significantly. We know in order for you to serve your constituents and residents well, your technology needs to work for you. We also understand that trying to solve technology issues that delay your initiatives can frustrating, time-consuming, and expensive, forcing you to spend funds that should be going to serve the community. Our Managed IT support for local governments expertise helps you with the specific office technology that you need.

We’ve Been There Before
This isn’t our first time in local government IT support. We have many years of experience in:

  • CJIS and Police Department IT and Technology Support. We are a known entity to the State of Minnesota BCA and adhere to CJIS technology cyber-security guidelines.
  • We have been through FBI audits (the FBI audited the cities we manage) with our clients.
  • We understand the systems typically used by city governments and how to make them perform properly. Everything from City Council technology systems to squad mobile laptops – we've supported it all.

Solution Builders set us up for success

— Greg Kenton, Vice-President, BlueWater Manufacturing

Increasingly I had become worried about security and lacked confidence in our back-up systems. With two of us handling all our IT issues I realized that we did not have the skills/expertise to resolve many of our IT issues. Now with Solution Builders we get real time answers and a 5-Star Help Desk! Their knowledge of our networks and Office 365 makes our company more productive and their strategic recommendation to move us to our new platform has really set us up for success.

Proud to partner with Solution Builders!

— Nick Wenner, Vice-President Operations, Pallet Service Corporation

During our 4 years of working together, they have seamlessly helped us scale support from 26 users to over 60 users while standardizing and stabilizing our IT environment between our three locations. From Help Desk to Backup solutions, Infrastructure Overhauls to Project Support we are confident in their abilities to proactively maximize uptime. They take all things IT off my list of concerns and they just handle it. They are honest, fair and professional. We are proud to partner with Solution Builders!

Solution Builders gives us piece of mind

— Matt Wikus, AIA Wilkus Architects

When our system was down, we had a software glitch or email didn’t work, our architectural firm couldn’t work – and that was expensive! Solution Builders gives us piece of mind. With their proactive approach and built-in redundancies we no longer have down time- just reliability and high productivity! Prior to hiring Solution Builders I tracked my time and discovered that over 40% of my time was spent on IT issues. Now my time is spent as billable time serving our clients and growing our business. Solution Builders is not a vendor… they are our professional IT Department and a strategic partner!

We count on Solution Builders to make our IT work

— Steve Erchul, Managing Principal, Smith Schafer & Associates

As an accounting and business consulting firm, our Technology Consulting Practice assists companies to leverage technology. But when it comes to our piece of mind, we count on Solution Builders to make our IT work. These top tech professionals have cleaned up our network and provide expert knowledge of accounting industry software to support our team and maximize our productivity. Their proactive IT management system delivers – our firm has not experienced server down time in over 5 years! Solution Builders worry-free IT environment allows us to really focus on building client-first relationships with our business and individual clients.
