PlanetMagpie

Why Choose Us?

PlanetMagpie has been a trusted IT partner to American businesses since 1998.

We offer all four pillars of business IT:  IT Consulting, IT Support, Web Development, and Cloud Services.  Use one or all of our services.  For customers who take advantage of all services, PlanetMagpie operates as your complete IT and Digital Marketing Department.

We manage our own private datacenter.  Security is paramount in our data theft-prone world.  The only way we could provide all the cloud services we wanted to, and control all aspects of data security, was to build & maintain our own datacenter right here in Silicon Valley.

We approach our work as a long-term partnership with your business. For that reason, we don’t employ any sales staff.  If you need IT equipment or software or a new telephone system, we’ll make a recommendation.  If not, we won’t.  We don’t try to sell you anything you don’t need.

100% Made in America.  We don’t offshore any of our work.  We believe it's important to build a strong American IT workforce and to support local businesses by buying American whenever possible.  Everything we can do to make a positive impact on the good old USA!

Our Business Standard

Our Business Standard

Your Loyal IT Partner

We “eat our own dog food.”  All technology we implement for your business is beta tested at PlanetMagpie.  Only after it’s proved itself, do we offer it to customers.  We’re a tough sell when it comes to partner products, so if we sell it, you know it’s reliable.

Like most things in life, you get what you pay for.  PlanetMagpie uses and sells only business-grade hardware and software.  Many brands provide savings up front, but they’ll cost you more over time in terms of hardware failures, security breaches, and business disruption.

We have old school business ethics and seek customers with the same.  We believe that both parties should benefit from business transactions.

Your emergency is our emergency.  If you have an IT failure, we will be there to help resolve it as quickly as possible.  24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  

We are as loyal as the dog whose name we carry.  We take great satisfaction in helping our customers grow their businesses by leveraging the latest technology to improve collaboration, sales, and security.
