Established in 1998, Leapfrog is one of the first US providers to offer remote IT management. They’ve been innovating ever since while adhering to their core principles – Integrity, Service, and People – (they call it “Frogma”) to help clients achieve, grow, and prosper.
“Like many innovations, Leapfrog was created to solve a problem. A network issue, coupled with inaccessibility to our sole-operator IT technician, crippled our ability to access information. Market research showed that there were no robust local IT service options available to SMB’s, so we set out to found a service-oriented company to focus on the needs of companies who rely on technology to leverage their business without getting in the way. I’m proud that Leapfrog now thrives on a culture of Service to our clients and our community and Integrity to do the right thing with People who live our values in our daily work.”
