At Capital Network Solutions, we provide Managed-IT services to small and mid-sized businesses in the Sacramento area.  With over thirty years of experience providing IT support and security solutions, we serve as the outsourced IT department for dozens of companies in a variety of industries.  Sacramento Business Journal has even recognized CNS as one of the top IT companies in Sacramento for several years running.

CNS only provides services to customers that sign up for one of our Managed-IT plans. However, some companies could be looking for more of a break/fix service, or they might want an IT consultant to resolve issues as they arise. Meanwhile, some customers hold back because they want to compare our prices against our competitors.

We are occasionally asked to name some of the other IT service providers in the greater Sacramento area.  Since we want our customers to be as informed as possible, we never shy away from providing honest answers, even regarding our direct competition.

Therefore, we put together a list of some of the other Sacramento area information technology companies that made the 2019 Sacramento Business Journal list.  This list only includes the companies that focus on working with IT equipment like servers, networks, PCs and end-user support, as opposed to those that specialize in software development, project management or IT staffing.

All these IT service providers maintain offices in Sacramento, El Dorado, Placer or Yolo counties.  Following the lead of the Sacramento Business Journal list, we ranked these businesses by the number of locally based IT staff members that they employ.  As for CNS, we staff 17 highly trained IT experts in our Sacramento office.
