Meet Jason Holland of Holland IT Consulting

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jason Holland.

Jason, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I’ve been in IT for 24 years. I stumbled into the field when I was 22 and needed a summer job. I took a position doing support for an early version of PowerPoint for Microsoft. I went on from there to work with an early ISP here in town called Mindspring. From there I went on to contract work for many companies including Delta, Matria Healthcare, and Bellsouth. I started my own business in 2004 and quickly built a niche for myself providing service to non-profits and arts organizations in addition to small and medium sized businesses. Things sort of took off from there.

We enjoy the fact that we can provide service AND make a difference in our community by supporting these organizations that often are underserved when it comes to IT. It gives a real sense of satisfaction.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
No small business is without it’s struggles. Building good relationships are key and instilling trust is essential for making a successful IT relationship. There have been ups and downs (usually in tune with the overall economy) but we’ve always been on an upward path. We hope to continue that upward trend!

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Holland IT Consulting – what should we know?
We provide Information technology across the board for small to medium sized organizations. That means workstations support, to servers, to communications, email and just about anything else you can imagine in the IT arena. We do websites, database app creation and much more. With an extensive network of partners, we are able to provide just about any IT service an organization could need.

We specialize in non-profits and arts organizations but we also work with for profit entities as well.

I’m most proud of the fact that we can help these organizations provide goods and services to the community. So many of these organizations are vital to the health of our city and our neighborhoods. It feels good to be able to help them.

I think we are different than a lot of other IT shops in that we have great communication skills and can make scary or difficult concepts easy to understand and process. We try not to use a lot of jargon and guide the customer in a way that is in their best interest.

Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
I’ve had several mentors along the way the biggest being my wife Betsy, who made it possible for me to take a chance on this business. I’ve also had plenty of mentoring and help along the way from friends and family. People have helped with business advice all the way down to emotional support. Owning a business is hard sometimes!
