About

cloudLark IT is a team. We won’t saddle you with one awkward IT guy who emerges from his cave only in the direst of straits. No way. We collaborate to solve your unique IT needs.

Unlike our competitors, we don’t wait for systems to break or malfunction before we spring to action. We monitor your environment so we can anticipate issues that need to be addressed before there’s a problem.

We take the lead to identify the best technology solutions to help your business succeed.  We don’t receive any kickbacks from technology vendors for slinging their systems.

Discover

We take the time to learn what makes your business tick. What value does it bring to your customers? How do your systems help (or hurt) your business? Where do you want your business to go in five, or even ten years? Once we have a full understanding of your business needs and goals, our team jumps right in.

Design

We approach the design process by creating systems in mind to support human connectivity, collaboration and productivity. To us, the solutions we present are sustainable, and incorporate the compatibility needs of your company, its employees, and, most importantly your customers.

Deliver
