Our Story

Fifteen years ago Fernando Zorrilla wondered why office technology has to be such a pain. Phones alone require one company for programming, another for cabling, a service provider… and the blame game in between. What if one company could manage all of your office technology? With a belief that technology should be simple and its deployment drama-free, Everglades Technologies has spent the past 15 years helping New York City businesses connect to the world.
