CMIT Solutions Opens New Business IT Services Franchise for West Austin

Technology Veteran John Pullen Offers Managed IT Services to Meet Growing Small Business Demand

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - Apr 16, 2012) - John Pullen knows that small and mid-sized businesses of all kinds -- law firms, coffee shops, doctor's offices -- depend on increasingly complex technology, and it's becoming harder for them to handle their own IT needs.

That's why the longtime technology executive recently opened CMIT Solutions of West Austin to offer managed IT services for small businesses.

"I'm deeply committed to not just living in this part of Austin but being a part of the community both personally and professionally," Pullen said, "so I have a vested interest in helping small businesses where I live and work succeed."

Small business owners across the U.S. are spending more every year on technology, from an average of less than $40,000 per year in 2008 to more than $100,000 per year in 2011. Seven of 10 small and medium-sized business owners expected their IT spending to increase in the next year, according to a recent industry survey.

Whether it's removing spyware from laptops or using smartphones for critical business tasks, Pullen knows the challenges facing small business owners. CMIT's local owners are small businesspeople themselves, and they focus almost entirely on clients with fewer than 100 employees.

"These businesses have the same needs as larger ones, just not in the same volume," Pullen said. "As technology progresses and small businesses spend more on it, the need for IT managed services grows too."

Pullen moved to Austin in 1978, shortly after earning a mechanical engineering degree from the University of Missouri. Pullen rose to a business unit executive position at IBM before leaving in 1995 for Houston-based BMC Software, where he spent the next 14 years in a variety of sales and management roles before he returned to Austin in 2008.
