Your One-Stop Shop for IT, Here Whenever You Need Us
Cure8 is the go-to IT partner for the cannabis industry. We're the company you call whenever you need help with anything tech - including POS systems, surveillance systems, networks, and back office computers. Though we're happy to serve you on as-needed basis, we work best as a long-term partner, helping you plan your IT so it aligns with your overall business goals, and monitoring, managing, protecting, and supporting your IT 24/7 so you never have to worry about tech or downtime and are always secure and compliant. We're pretty sure our clients feel that way, too.
When We Say Partner, We Mean It
We don't use the term "partner" lightly, either. We're genuinely interested in helping our clients succeed and grow, and are here to offer any services and advice you need to help you reach your goals. Of course, it's easy to say things like that and not follow through, which is why we rely on our impeccable track record and our clients' good word to back us up.
