Copeland Technology Solutions is a managed services provider in the Buffalo-Niagara area. We help businesses across the United States and Canada with their IT responsibilities and create opportunities for them to grow revenue by leveraging technology.
Copeland Technology Solutions has the business expertise backed by experienced professionals to assist you with whatever your information technology needs may be. We provide IT consulting through a single point-of-contact and enjoy a personal level of interaction with all our customers.
Since 1979, Copeland Technology Solutions has been an important information technology resource for companies throughout the United States and Canada.
Our roles in information technology differ for each customer, depending on their specific needs. Some companies are just looking for trained and certified experts to help them through problems with their desktop PCs or corporate networks.
Others need a full-service information technology company to analyze their business needs, develop a customized business system, and be able to support additional enhancements as their business evolves. Somewhere in the middle are the customers who currently have their business systems and processes in place, but are looking to make some enhancements or extend their system’s capabilities by integrating a third-party product or integrating their systems with the Internet.
We strive to maintain a friendly, personal relationship with all our customers. We took the time to write up short bios on ourselves so you can put a face to a name, learn about our professional experience and specialties, and perhaps find a common interest or hobby that we enjoy in our free time. We look forward to making a connection.
