About the Owner
Beth Burnside is convinced that there is a better way to serve small to mid-sized businesses and organizations in the Erie area that are becoming increasingly dependent on technology, as she has personally struggled with finding an outsourced IT services provider that could be a true business advisor for a family business interest she has in the Erie area. A complete understanding of a client’s business and its goals and objectives is necessary to guide them in the most efficient use of the information technology available to them. Beth is committed to being a trusted resource and IT solution provider for local Erie businesses so they can get the computer and network support they need to help them remain competitive in their fields. The increasing complexity of managing network security, data backup, and data recovery has only added to the reasons for involving a qualified team of IT consulting professionals who understand your business to ensure you are best managing the challenges that technology can bring to your business.
Beth’s multi-faceted career in both large enterprise and small company environments has led her to the firm belief in the need for smaller businesses to ensure they are using technology to maximize efficiency, increase productivity, increase revenue and reduce costs. The proper use of outsourced IT services is critical for the success of small to mid-sized businesses in today's marketplace. Beth has worked in marketing, sales, purchasing, human resources, accounting, and finance and holds an MBA from the Pennsylvania State University. She has used her experience in corporate America coupled with her experience running smaller businesses and has gathered a team of local Erie IT consulting professionals dedicated to being “your technology team” so that clients can focus on their business while CMIT Solutions of Erie focuses on their technology.
