Lake Worth, FL – February 2019 – Fifteen years ago, few cellphones offered cameras, Bluetooth was just emerging and MySpace was in its infancy. At the same time, Deana and Jason Pizzo were combining her business acumen with his technology skills. Together, they founded I.T. Solutions of South Florida, an award-winning Managed Service Provider and woman-owned business in Lake Worth.
“In 2004, I started I.T. Solutions of South Florida with my wife out of our living room, with a strong desire to use my passion for technology to help others,” said Jason Pizzo, CIO and co-founder of the company. I.T. Solutions of South Florida continues to stand the test of time, growing and evolving with technology and customer needs.
“I.T. Solutions of South Florida has grown into a full-service I.T. consulting company, serving over 200 small and medium-sized businesses both locally and nationally,” Jason said. Jason and Deana both grew up locally, so it made sense to raise their family here and start their business in Lake Worth.
I.T. Solutions of South Florida upgraded their office dramatically since the inception of the company. In 2004, the family dining room was their central work area and the Pizzo’s 3-year-old son and 9-month-old daughter were always close by. The company now operates out of a state-of-the-art 3,600 square foot space where the emphasis is on technology and employee satisfaction.
“I’m very proud of our corporate culture,” said Deana Pizzo, CEO of I.T. Solutions of South Florida. “You spend more waking hours with your coworkers than you do with your own family. So, we want to foster a fun atmosphere and make sure our employees know that they are appreciated every single day.”
Highlights of the relaxed work environment include access to a nap room, a stocked beer fridge, free-standing Tetris arcade and generous work from home policy. Deana and Jason explained they believe their employees will go the extra mile for clients when they go the extra mile for their employees.
This approach earned I.T. Solutions of South Florida the honor of being named among the “2019 Best Places To Work” by South Florida Business Journal. “That is the award we are most proud of,” Deana said.
The South Florida Business Journal also recognized the company in 2017 as the 11th Fastest-Growing Technology Company. I.T. Solutions of South Florida also earned industry accolades including: 75th Globally in the 2018 MSP 501 Small Business Edition; ranking #404 Globally on the Channel Futures TOP 501 Managed Service Providers List; and, recognition on the 2018 CRN MSP 500 List in the TOP 100 Managed Security Category in North America.
Plaques, awards and letters from the governor adorn the walls in the office reception area. But most clients will never set foot in I.T. Solutions of South Florida. Most of the I.T. support is performed at the client office or completed remotely, especially for clients with multiple locations and remote workers.
I.T. Solutions of South Florida delivers flat-rate I.T. services implemented by certified network engineers. “Our goal is to make you and your employees more productive through technology. We align our goals with the goals of our clients. When you are running successfully, so are we,” Jason explained.
Looking forward, the company founders plan to hire additional network engineers and purchase their own office space in Lake Worth within the next few years.
“These first 15 years have been incredible! We are looking forward to continuing our commitment to our employees and our clients and serving wholeheartedly,” Deana said sincerely. “Thank you to our loyal customers and exceptional team for our continued growth and success. We appreciate your support and look forward to an exciting future together!”
