Manhattan Information Systems was founded in 1975, the genesis of the data processing era, to provide New York City businesses the latest information on technology products and premium services. We sold office supplies, calculators and dictation equipment. Although conservative by nature, we were always on the lookout for the newest technologies being offered in the marketplace. Today, Manhattan is a leading provider of end-to-end IT solutions in the tri-state area.
MIS received HP’s financial and scientific calculators authorization in 1978; officially making us the oldest HP reseller in the country! In 1984, another first was bestowed upon us: an IBM medallion, which up until that point, had only been issued to retail storefront operations. MIS was the first corporation to receive an IBM medallion, thus allowing us to sell PCs directly to end users. Our success flourished in 1987 when we became Compaq authorized, and this HP/Compaq business is the foundation of our successful hardware sales today.
In the early ’90s, MIS introduced services to our line card. We began by offering help desk and break fix contracts to our customers. This has evolved into the successful, multi-layered managed services platform we provide today. Our qualified engineering team offers comprehensive network design, integration and implementation services. MIS also retains many elite authorizations with a number of premier manufacturers in the industry.
For over 44 years we have adapted to the industry as transformations in technology rapidly advance and change. How were we able to prevail during a frenzied time? Our formula for success was (and still is) simple: understand your technical objectives, accurately assess the technological need, and implement the solutions that meet or exceed your goals. MIS has developed all of its products and services around this formula of custom solutions to achieve goals that exceed our customers’ expectations. Many of our clients and employees have been loyal to our organization over the years. We welcome you to become a part of our proud tradition.
