Pedigree of Success

Breadth of Experience. Wealth of Knowledge. Depth of Relationships.

Bridgepointe Technologies is a leading IT and Telecom consulting company with Headquarters in San Mateo, California and 6 offices throughout California and the Pacific Northwest. Bridgepointe was founded in 2002 by Telecom Executives Scott Evars and Brian Miller on the principle that enterprises need a partner and advocate when procuring, implementing and maintaining Telecom, IT Services and Infrastructure.  Successful projects require a tremendous amount of research, experience, and time that many enterprises simply don’t have in-house.

A typical enterprise embarking on a new IT or Telecom related project, like migrating servers to the cloud or deploying a Wide Area Network, will go through a lengthy research and design stage, entertain a minimum of 3-5 proposals, and dedicate countless man-hours to vendor review and selection, and project managing the implementation.

Bridgepointe has managed thousands of such projects.  We can reduce the time and resources you commit to each project by handling the research and solution provider engagement for you.  Presenting you only the solutions that best meet your technical and budgetary requirements.  We can also improve the outcome of each project with our combined 100 years of experience and our deep relationships with the leading solution providers.
