The happier IT brand was born

In April of 2016 we re-branded as happier IT Inc. The name was chosen because we continually hear companies say how “unhappy” they are with their current in-house IT or IT provider. We believe everyone deserves a happier IT experience. To us, happier IT is much more than a name. It’s our mission and we strive to deliver it each and every day.
