Our Story

For nearly 40 years, TAB® Computer Systems, Inc. has been servicing businesses in all types of industries and sizes. In 2021, we became a 100% employee-owned company that adopted a client-focused, client-driven mindset.

For almost any kind of computer issue, TAB® has your solution. We stock a large inventory of technology hardware ready when your company needs it. Our clients don’t wait for a replacement router, switch, WAP, or even a server when they need it, nor should you. Our technically skilled and experienced staff ensures the high quality of our products and services.

We are one of the largest IT service providers in the Hartford Metro area. Since our inception, we have grown to include 40 certified technical professionals and support staff servicing hundreds of clients. We are committed to providing our clients with the best IT support that can be found in our market at the most competitive price. The ongoing professional development of our staff means our team uses “Best-in-Class” solutions and approaches to keep your IT systems operational and secure. TAB does not require long-term contracts to become a client; we earn your business monthly.

We pride ourselves on providing affordable technology solutions for our clients. Our current offerings include consultation services, low-cost service plans, fixed stop plans, rollover plans, server, and workstation monitoring, offsite backup and disaster recovery, VoIP business phones powered by Allworx, email protection, web content filtering, and helpdesk or on-site support. We do all of this 24/7, 365 days a year.

Our clients are never charged a fee for our consultation or advice when looking to upgrade their network, computer systems, or pre-configuration research. If you have a technology question, we have the answer.
