Skyriver IT is a different type of IT service provider, because our founder was an IT services customer, not a provider. As a financial and operational executive in a mid-size company, Siyamak Khorrami was frustrated by the IT service he received. What he experienced convinced him there was an opportunity for a better IT service provider.
Siyamak found like minded IT professionals and started Skyriver IT to provide professional IT services that remove the frustration from IT. We are always working to give clients the best possible experience.
From 24×7 live technicians to providing jargon-free communications and unbiased technology recommendations, Skyriver IT is built around providing a better customer experience. As part of that effort, we created a Client Bill of Rights to make it clear to our clients what they can expect.
