CMIT Solutions launched in the ‘90s as a provider that catered mostly to household computer service and repairs. Over the next decade, small to mid-sized businesses (SMBs) would beef up their adoption of computerization. By the early 2000s, it was clear that the IT needs of SMBs were being overlooked.
CMIT (Completely Managed Information Technology) Solutions morphed to deliver enterprise-scale IT solutions for SMBs at an affordable price. The value proposition hit such a sweet spot that the franchise has rapidly increased its North American footprint ever since. There are now over 230 CMIT Solutions offices in 33 states and provinces across North America.
The franchise has followed a strategic growth plan over the years, providing a comprehensive suite of IT solutions. These include data protection, disaster preparedness, cybersecurity, mobility, cloud computing, and compliance. SMBs lean on CMIT Solutions to attend to their computing needs so they can focus on their specialty. In late 2018, the private equity firm Craftsman Capital purchased CMIT Solutions. The equity firm has focused on long-term strategic growth and strengthening support systems at the franchisee and franchisor levels.
CMIT Solutions also has a new CEO, Roger Lewis, with former CEO Jeff Connally moving to an advisory role on the Board of Directors. Such strategic investments in marketing and capital have propelled the franchise to the forefront of the industry.
As the computing and cybersecurity needs of SMBs become increasingly complex, expect CMIT Solutions to forge an even stronger niche in the $1.7 trillion U.S. information technology industry.
