About Us

Next I.T. is different from our competitors because we focus on technology solutions the make business sense for YOU. Our size and independent ownership makes Next I.T. the ideal technology partner for most small and mid-size organizations. We are large enough to maintain close relationships and purchasing leverage with all major suppliers, yet not so big that we forget how important your business is to our business.

Thank you for considering us!

Best Regards,

Eric Ringelberg

Hi, my name is Eric Ringelberg

I started Next I.T. in my basement back in 2001 after working for a national I.T. consulting firm. With a lot hard work, the right people, and a little luck we have grown to 4 offices across the state. Our clients range from manufacturers to schools, government, wineries, etc… But they all want the same thing – Reduce risk, be more productive, and leverage their technology!

As an end-to-end technology solutions provider, Next I.T. is proud to be recognized by many of the top technology manufactures as a partner; Cisco Premier Certified Partner, Microsoft Silver Certified Partner, VMware Enterprise Partner, VEEAM, HP, Web Root, and many more.

Here’s why so many businesses depend on Next I.T. for I.T. service and support:

Our Silver Microsoft Partner Status

Round-the-clock technical support
