What our Customers are Saying About OnDemand Managed IT Services 

"We suffered a power failure going into a weekend that shut our entire network down. IE worked with me to return our systems to full functionality. Not only did their engineer support us from his home on a Saturday, but he also made a trip to the office to make sure everything was visually in working order. This type of support is the primary reason we use IE OnDemand and have made IE our support partner for well over 12 years."  

- Shon Nixon, Midrex Technologies, Inc. 


"They are our backbone for support. We have one guy that does all of our server and infrastructure work and he leans on IE for everything. Every question we have, we have an answer really quickly, even on Saturdays and Sundays somebody is always there to answer our questions. As we have completely changed our infrastructure, just not from networking but from server installations, they have been right there, every step of the way."  

- Randy Robbins, Director of IT, Bob Barker Company
