Traverse City, MI

Big-city Experience, Small-Town Approach

From our company’s start in Traverse City in 2003, our goal was to bring the experience and capabilities of larger enterprise IT to the growing businesses of Northwest Lower Michigan, from Petoskey to Houghton Lake to Manistee. Our Traverse City managed IT services team is on hand to deliver Great IT – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with a little small town charm.


Empower your business with proactive Traverse City IT management

Bringing Safety Net on board at your northern Michigan business is like adding the most knowledgeable IT staff around to your roster, but much better for your books! Our specialty is Your Net managed services – everything that organizations need for IT security and reliability, at a lower cost than hiring internal staff. Your Net is an ideal fit for companies with strong security and compliance needs, such as banks and credit unions, healthcare providers, retail organizations, manufacturers, and more. From our Traverse City base, we have a wide service area, reaching as far as Gaylord, Cadillac, Benzie County, and surrounding areas. While we can accomplish many services remotely, we’re happy to send competent IT staff to be your boots on the ground on-site.

Services We Offer

How We Work

Our people-focused approach to managed IT services means you’ll have a dedicated small team of 3-4 technical professionals that get to know you and how you work. When someone on your assigned team doesn’t have the answer, they call in an expert on that system or issue at Safety Net to get you the best solution. We are one of the few SOC 2-certified providers in the State of Michigan, meaning our operations in both offices meet strict requirements for security and IT best practices. We answer to a team of outside auditors at least annually.

We kick IT stereotypes to the curb, bringing a professional yet fun personality to your IT solutions. In having a little fun around the office, our employees are motivated to do an outstanding job for you, our clients! We hope you’ll always be excited to give us a call, no matter what the need is.

With our 24/7 approach, someone is always available to help, no matter the time of day or day of the week. IT issues come up when we least expect them, and having Safety Net as a member of your team means you’re always covered. No more worries about when “Joe is on vacation.” You get 30 Joes (and some Jills, too!).

Hiring our team of IT experts gives you access to professionals with a wide variety of skill sets, knowledge across the board, and the certifications to prove their expertise. Our team is always dedicated to completing the highest quality work to keep your business running smoothly (and we have fun while we do it).

We monitor your systems all day, every day and complete proactive maintenance to catch as many issues as possible before you ever notice them. We’re constantly learning to keep up with new security threats so you don’t have to.
