A little about us

A little about us

Our story

Every organization has a story. The short version of our story begins in early 2002 when my friend and I purchased a small division of a larger technology firm based in Northern New Jersey. A year into the venture my friend passed away and I had the opportunity to run the company on my own. Talk about an education! After being a "one year old company" for nearly 10 years in a row, it was time to re-brand ourselves and carve out a place in a bigger story.

We changed our name to navitend which comes from the combination of "navigate" and "tend".  As a Managed Services Provider (MSP) providing IT helpdesk and consulting, we navigate our clients through their technology-related decisions and then help them look after their technology investments. Kind of like a shepherd. That's where our cool sheep logo comes from -- we want to lead the way to greener pastures.

Twenty years later we are now serving clients across North America as well as locally in our community.

As the owner of the company, my passion is that everyone who comes into contact with navitend would thrive. I want our employees to grow personally, professionally and spiritually. I want our clients to enjoy great value through their relationship with us.

One of my favorite passages from the Bible is from Psalms chapter One, verse Three. I think it provides a nice picture of what we're aiming for:

That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
    which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
    whatever they do prospers.

 

Thanks for taking a moment out of your busy day to learn a little bit about us and our journey.

God bless you.
