About Us

Our mission is to empower businesses of all sizes with the best in enterprise-level IT Support and Services for the most value at a fraction of the cost.

It all started with a college student's problem...

The year was 1990 and Tim was in college at Brigham Young University and had to find a way to pay for his college life and expenses. It wasn’t long before he realized that many of the students needed computers and he took it upon himself to provide that for them. He was known on campus as the go to computer source for students. As he became known, many companies that are with CR-T still to this day, reached out to him to source their computer needs and thus became the birth of CR-T (Calculated Research and Technology).

As CR-T grew over the years, the amount of loyalty received from clients was stimulating as we soon found out that we operated uniquely in contrast to our competitors. Many companies appreciated that we maintained strong and loyal relationships like a smaller company but fought and challenged the industry how a larger IT company would.

Client Loyal vs. Manufacturer Loyal

We don’t just provide you IT Support or hardware and software, we truly consult with you. This is where we are different. Where many IT agencies are manufacture loyal in hopes of being rewarded or fed by the manufacturer, we are client loyal and search for solutions that are truly the right fit for your needs. We do this with our unique IDR (Identify, Determine, Resolve) Process.

Testimonials

"I wanted to take a minute to let you know how awesome CR-T was with this migration. When I started here with a competitor of CR-T we did a similar migration to AppRiver and we had 5 people involved in the migration and still had numerous issues. I was a little worried about having just one guy handle it all, but this migration couldn’t have gone better or smoother. The CR-T engineer was so thorough and on top of everything, I was highly impressed. Makes CR-T look really good."

"We also came in about $2,000 less than proposed which makes CR-T look great to our CFO and management. Looking forward to future opportunities"
