Why would I work with anyone else?

“Chavous has the best interests of my organization in mind. I haven’t worked with another IT firm in almost two decades. Why would I? Chavous understands technology, but equally as important to me, he understands my business.”

Andy White President
Lifestone Communities, LLC

They spend the time to learn our business like an in-house IT staff

“Chavous Camp and CI spend the time to learn our business to be more capable of understanding our concerns/issues. They offer other solutions that we may not have taken into consideration, spending our money more wisely. Having a firm that is more like and in-house IT staff that understands our business instead of constantly having a learning curve with most outside firms is the single biggest benefit we receive.”

Chris Christiansen Chairman & CEO
The RL Bryan Company

Remarkably responsive & knowledgeable, exceeding expectations

“We would definitely recommend CI and Chavous Camp over other IT firms due to the knowledge base, the remarkable responsiveness, and the personal integrity of Chavous Camp, who is experienced in retaining confidentiality of any services they deliver to clients. Response times to advise and repair issues with equipment or software was remarkably faster than our prior experiences, and availability have always exceeded our expectations. We are most grateful for the timeliness.
His professionalism was greatly appreciated and his advice was relevant. They are truly bright, reliable, and quick to deliver services.”

Robert E. Gyemant Executive Management Director
Adams, Gyemant & Griffin Advisory Group

Total Integrity, Fully Prepared, Recommended without reservation

“Chavous and the staff of CI are totally committed to calling a ‘spade…a spade.’ No matter the outcome, they will give my issue everything they have, regardless. They come to the job “loaded for bear,” totally prepared to do what is necessary to achieve the desired goals. I have worked with many IT people over the years, and KNOW, without hesitation, that Chavous and his team can accomplish whatever I ask of them. I recommend them without reservation.”

Charles J. Brooks Owner
Brooks Properties

If you think you may be outgrowing your current IT provider, you probably already have.

"As a growing company with multiple locations across South Carolina, we picked CI to develop a comprehensive IT strategy to ensure all business units are able to collaborate. Their deep understanding of our enterprise system and willingness to learn how our business operates is extremely valuable.  We thought we might be outgrowing our previous provider.  Turns out we already had."
