Ten years ago, Cirrus Partners designed an IT solution for MMoCA’s image production
department. They installed equipment and software, established a workflow, trained relevant
staff, and created a backup and recovery system. Their custom solution has served the
museum well in meeting goals and has been flexible enough to allow for projects of increasing
complexity. In fact, Cirrus anticipated the museum’s technology needs and made
recommendations that have supported the whole organization, not just Mac users or one individual department.
MMoCA has benefited doubly from Cirrus Partners’ photography expertise. Cirrus advised the
museum on initial photo studio set-up and then trained relevant staff in a friendly and accessible
manner. While IT is the company’s primary focus, Cirrus has continued to be available to
troubleshoot photography issues and advise on equipment upgrades.
As Cirrus Partners has grown, their attention to detail and their responsiveness have been
unwavering. They have added remote monitoring and maintenance to prevent problems from

They have been able to speak our language and make highly technical solutions easy for us non-techno types to understand. We truly consider them a partner in our business and an important part of our team.
I appreciate and rely on Cirrus Partners’ reliability and quality. They help us support our Mac client base and have the specialized skills and expertise that we need. We have partnered with Cirrus for years and will continue to for years to come. The Cirrus team are true business consultants.
Cirrus Partners was exactly the solution we had been looking for, and they have been a fantastic partner for all of our technology needs. As a small business owner, I was struggling on multiple fronts with our technology and had tried every solution. When I met Dennis and his team, I was immediately impressed with his knowledge, professionalism, and attention to detail. He asked all the right questions, and created a long-term solution that has brought me total peace of mind. I can't say enough how great Cirrus Partners has been to work with. They have my highest recommendation!

Cirrus is not a technology vendor, they are a partner who work with technology to help you achieve your goals.
Cirrus sets up and maintains of all our office hardware, and their staff keeps us informed about industry IT standards and software updates. Our office recently moved into a new space, and it was reassuring to know Cirrus would handle our network and provide whatever we might need. We appreciate having their staff check in on-site weekly, while knowing that additional help is just a phone call or email away.
