About Fido Systems

Fido Systems function as its client's IT department. They have the full compliment of resources that would be found in an enterprise IT department, available to small and medium business at a fraction of the cost. Services include a fully staff help desk, Network Infrastructure Design, VOIP phone system services and deployment, strategic consulting, and even project management of office moves.

We were inspired by one of our beloved clients, Dharma Merchant Services. They are a B Corp and proud of it, and we were impressed with their corporate ethos. They felt we had a similar business approach and encouraged us to apply. It was not hard for us to qualify as we were already doing much of what B Corps do. So it was a natural fit and a great way to express outwardly who we are as a company.

The Change We Seek®

Fido Systems is driven by deep motivation to make the world a better place for everyone. This idea, called Tikkun Olam in ancient Jewish tradition, is the notion that everyone should behave and act constructively and beneficially. This instinct is part of their corporate DNA and culture.

What makes us a better company?
