Based in Long Beach California, the CORE-Group is an information technology (IT)company offering complete outsourced IT services. Through innovative and proactive programs like our CORE Guard Plan, we monitor and service our clients' networks so any potential issue can be identified and remedied before it becomes a problem. If even the smallest issue does arise, we are available at a moments notice to come to your sight and manage it. There is no task too large or too small for our team of experts. CORE strongly believes the most important service we provide is piece of mind.
Our clients utilize our menu of services in several ways. Some use the CORE-Group as completely outsourced IT, others choose to partner us with their existing internal IT in areas of specialization or to merely assist in technology rollouts and upgrades. Some call on us to rid their network of a virus. Whatever your specific needs, we will cater our services to give you the best solution.
As a registered partner and reseller of hardware and software by most of the major manufacturers including Cisco, Hewlett Packard and Microsoft, the CORE-Group has negotiated competitive pricing, so the maximum savings can be passed on to our clients.
