Present turns 30

Accompanying you in your digital transformation since 1990

Take a look at the comical video we created to mark our 30th anniversary! See the beginnings of Present and how much technological transformation we’ve been through with our clients.

“It was 1990 and IT was taking hold in businesses yet the demand for IT expertise exceeded supply, and vendors were being arrogant with customers. Being born into a sales family and having learned the highest respect for customers, I felt very bad in this environment. With 3 years of IT experience in my pocket, I decided to start something that would fit my values ​​”, underlines Marc Beaulieu, President and Founder of Present.

It is with the conviction that customers deserve to be better served by the industry that Present was created in 1990. Over the years, Present has distinguished itself by allying itself with big players such as IBM, Nutanix, Microsoft,  Lenovo and AWS. These partnerships have enabled Present to deliver innovative, state-of-the-art IT services.

Today, the success of the Present prevails, in great part, due to its focus on offering world class service; a quality of service which is based on values ​​of professionalism, generosity and efficiency. Our mission is to be a true partner who can be counted on.
