AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - Apr 8, 2013) - CMIT Solutions, a Texas-based IT support company, today announced Continuum as the exclusive managed services software and services provider for its more than 135 franchises nationwide.

"We are thrilled that CMIT franchises will now be leveraging our entire managed services offering," said Michael George, CEO of Continuum. "Utilizing both our remote monitoring and management, and business continuity solutions enables CMIT franchisees to provide complete IT management and protection from a single, SaaS-based platform that is tightly integrated with our industry-leading network operation center. This powerful combination enables CMIT franchisees to profitably scale their operations and maintain high customer satisfaction as they shift customers to a managed services model that requires proactive 24 x 7 x 365 uptime and support."
