About Trent Systems

Paul Trent was one of the early network pioneers in the Southern San Joaquin Valley that shaped the infrastructures of some of the area’s leading professional organizations. He is an excellent technical leader with more than 20 years of experience in the IT industry, and has demonstrated the ability to focus teams to accomplish complex critical projects on time.

During his tenure with both private and public companies he has assembled highly competent IT teams in the areas of LAN/WAN (Local Area Network / Wide Area Network) implementation and administration, financial systems, line of business systems selection and implementation, and distributed process control systems.

Trent Systems believes that one of the most important aspects of any successful information technology initiative is to first understand the business objectives of the project to then implement or align the I.T. infrastructure to support these objectives.

Through our internal resources and via strategic alliances with some of the best vendors and services providers in the industry we are bringing I.T. services to the small business that were up until recently only available to the larger businesses.

What makes us different is our ability to think strategically and develop I.T. solutions that benefit your business, not our technical egos or bank accounts. We incorporate our client’s vision, needs, budget, and concerns into solutions that in turn ineffective and costly processes into scalable and reliable technology solutions. We think about your business like you do; smart, resourceful, and focused on efficiency. In every engagement we take direct aim at strategic I.T. objectives that directly and positively impact your bottom line.


We are purposely structuring our business to provide small businesses with the advantages of large businesses with professional managed I.T. services. Our knowledge and experience makes us uniquely qualified to offer your company the best managed I.T. services on the market.

Our solution bundles meet the needs of every small business in any phase of growth. By outsourcing all or a portion of your I.T. management to ITsyscon you can rest assured your critical systems will be available when you need them without paying more than you should.

Virtual CTO

Your I.T. service provider should be an asset to your balance sheet, not a liability. To be an asset your I.T. service provider should understand your business and help align your I.T. strategy with your business objectives. Properly leveraging your I.T. investment will give your company the strategic advantage of doing more with less by increasing efficiency and productivity in your work force. Most companies with fewer than 100 employees can’t afford to hire a full-time CTO. Our Virtual CTO services give growing businesses an advantage over their competition by leveraging a high-tech hired gun that carries heavy fire power into our customer’s corner offices to help executive management align their I.T. investments with business goals and initiatives.

Desktop Management

Our modular plans offer solutions for small businesses in every stage of a growth. Desktop Management support plans range from remote only support to fully managed plans that include on-site* dispatch, mobile device support, and after-hours emergency support.

Network Management
