Joint Enterprise Technologies is an information technology company in Tampa, FL founded April 28, 2008 by Richie Harris and Charles Middleton as a 100% minority-owned and VA certified Service Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) specializing in information technology solutions for both government and business.

With over 55 years combined experience in the information technology field, we’ve seen and experienced the full range of IT customer service from both the providers point of view and the customer perspective. The service levels we’ve seen varied from excellent to just down right pitiful. We know there is a better way, and we know how to provide it!

Although we’re small, our vision is large. We see information technology as a valuable tool whose only role is to SUPPORT a business’ strategic vision, not DRIVE the business’ vision. We are certain that many organizations across variuos industries are not receiving the value they expect from their IT systems. Coupled with the current economic climate, more businesses are looking for ways to cut costs and gain value in order to seek out new markets.

First and foremost, our goal is to provide the most excellent services and support possible to make your business work for you. We pledge to serve your IT needs by demonstrating exemplary character and integrity in the delivery of IT solutions and services. We have no sales quotas, and our solutions are based on industry best practices and common sense.
