About Us

Based out of Airdrie, Alberta, First Response is an IT business management company that was created by Greg Scobie (Owner) to fulfill the need of many clients in the Calgary, Airdrie and Surrounding Areas to have support and visibility of the IT infrastructure used to operate their businesses.

 

With over 30 years in Dental, Commercial and Business IT, we put that experience to work for you.  We believe that specializing in only one market diminishes an IT company’s ability to be agile and responsive to new ideas and threats.  First Response takes lessons and best practices from several disciplines and builds what we believe is a broader more hardened and tested model for keeping your business safe with the right products and support. 

 

We also know that markets such as Dental have special considerations such as PIPPIDA, PIA’s and specialized equipment.  Building management with PCI compliance...  However, some of these considerations and special needs are very similar in scope.  All markets have these specific special considerations.  But imagine taking the best from these markets and mixing them to build a stronger more robust environment.  That is what we do for you and your business.

 

Take some time today to reach out for a free onsite assessment to see where we can help you build the safe, robust, client friendly and employee centric IT and network environment.

 

We look forward to hearing from you!
