We’ve continuously learned, developed, and invested in the growth of our team and our business with the goal of offering even better service to our most valued clients.

Jesse Hill was honoured to be recognized as one of Business in Edmonton’s 2019 Leadership Award recipients. This award recognizes our team efforts that go into building and running an exceptional business that has client service at its core.
On July 1st, 2018 we acquired the operations of Ekota Central Ltd. — another leading Managed I.T. Services provider in Edmonton. This allowed us to expand both our operations and technical scope.
As our company and client base grew, we were recognized as the Business of the Year for exceptional service, rapid growth, and effective solutions.
In offering a long-term support plan for The Riseup Society of Alberta, we were recognized for our contribution with the Spirit of Giving Award. To this day, Tier 3 I.T. Solutions provide rent and utility-free space for counsellors and domestic abuse victims.
With eyes on the future, we launched our new brand as Business I.T. Specialists to better reflect the essential role we were coming to play.
It was an honour to be recognized and rewarded as the Small Business of the Year by the Leduc & District Chamber of Commerce.
As clients began asking for more streamlined IT packages, our team began developing a first-generation Managed I.T. Services offering. This would form the basis of the B2B focus that would become Tier 3 I.T. Solutions.
Shortly after Jesse Hill joined the leadership team, we launched our first cloud service—a secure, off-site backup platform called Data Superhero. This innovative solution came early in our cloud-service portfolio and remains an integral part of what we offer today.
As computers entered the mainstream, Cottage Computers expanded into a retail location for home users and business owners alike.
Gary and Mary Lou Hill recognized early on that computers would have an unprecedented impact on small businesses. Together, they founded Cottage Computers Ltd. to support businesses that were adopting this new technology.
