What do we do?

EXP Technical provides custom IT solutions and support to small and medium sized business in the Greater Seattle Area. We can provide a complete outsourced IT department or augment our clients existing IT team. We create custom, plan-driven solutions to meet each client's strategic needs.

What don't we do?

We are not an "MSP". We don't make our clients sign contracts and we don't sell monthly fixed fee services. BUT that does not mean we do not have all the tools, standards and skills that they do. It just means our clients get real value for every dollar they spend with us.

How do we think?

At EXP Technical believe that technology exists to serve people and makes their lives and jobs easier. We treat our clients needs as if they were our own and build a custom, plan-driven set of services for each one. That's why we rarely, if ever, lose a client.

We like what we do, have positive attitudes and use our brains to do good work efficiently. We treat our employees fairly and with respect and value each and every persons input. We foster long term relationships with our employees as well as our customers.
