Aurora IT Services was founded in June of 2015. During our inception, we deliberately took our time to review available tools on the market to assure that we are using the best the industry has to offer. Aurora IT Services has a combined 45+ years of IT experience serving businesses as IT consultants for the majority of those years. Our years of experience in IT means that we have most likely already seen, and solved, the IT issues that you are currently facing. We founded Aurora IT Services because we were sick and tired of seeing complicated pricing structures with unseen costs. Our Managed IT Services simplifies your business by giving you predictable IT costs with no hidden charges. Your business will know what it will cost if you need to add a new computer or server or need technical support at any time, allowing you to budget appropriately and taking the uncertainty out of your IT systems planning. At Aurora IT Services, we see ourselves as not having clients or customers, but having business partners and knowing that your success is our success.
