Whole Mackerel is an IT support and IT services company in Boston, MA. We work with businesses and residential customers alike, managing all aspects of technology developing solutions to meet their specific demands. Our main areas of focus include:

Just Fix it

OK, we can do that, but never without considering the complete costs of repair vs. replace.

Strategy-Organization

Determine your existing inventory and evaluate usefulness/plan for upgrading, replacing, etc. What are your current obligations? What are the areas for increased productivity? What’s out there, and is not just really cool, but really works?

We offer a complete technology solution, so that you can focus on your clients’ needs and not the tools you use to produce your work.

Yes, we provide 24-hour on-call support (on-site or remote), so you do not have to worry about troubleshooting your systems while trying to get your tasks off your to-do list.

  • We may be alerted to problems before you are and fix them before you know it.
  • Secure access to your facility means that we can “be” there anytime.
  • You’re not a Fortune 500 company, but you’ve got a CIO.
