The Contego Story

"When Contego took over our IT support we noticed a big change.  We stopped talking and thinking about our servers and network.  It just worked." 

Manager of Professional Services Firm


"SSL are extremely professional and knowledgeable. They are easy to deal with and give us quick responses. There’s nothing that’s missing from their services. They are fantastic to deal with and never try to keep the information to themselves. They’ve educated us so we can work in the system, create and fix things ourselves."

Contego Tech Solutions - Your Applications Experts

Contego was built on helping customers get the most from their technical environments.   As technology moves towards cloud based solutions, CTS has been focusing on learning the applications that help you streamline your business.  We want to become your applications experts helping to gain efficiencies so that you can be industry leaders. 


Contego Software Solutions (Formerly SSL Solutions) 

Early in their careers, when working for other organizations, there were too many days where they couldn’t get the resources, time or flexibility to make their customers happy. CSS was built to ensure every day ends on a high note with a happy customer. 

Everybody wants fun and rewarding work.  The CSS team share a passion for solving problems, working in new environments and, at the end of the day, adding value to the world around them. SSL was born from those values.  


Coming Together

Coming together as a team gives us the ability to help our clients at a deeper level.  We can resolve business needs and solve problems without our clients needing to know where the issues are coming from. We can also ensure that the technologies our clients are using suit perfectly to their needs. 


Here are some of the ideals we feel strongly about:

  • We believe in unbiased advice. If we don’t have your best solution we will send you elsewhere.
  • Buying an ERP is a long term decision. Give yourself time to make the right choice.
  • In the mid-tier, no ERP will ever be a 100% perfect fit. Set priorities to  choose the system with the greatest return on your investment.
  • We love efficiency and we dream of having everyone being as efficient and effective as possible. Your solution is out there.
