iRUMBO is a FREE Business to Business (B2B) tool for people to find and connect with local Information Technology (IT) solution providers commonly called consultants, managed service providers (MSPs), resellers (VARs), or service providers to help solve their technical and business problems.

 

If you have never used the iRUMBO search engine, here are some simple steps to get you started:

 

1) Enter your desired location, i.e., zip code or city and state.

 

2) From the left-hand navigation bar, select any combination of Solution, Technology, Service and Type of Solution Provider. This will change the number of accounts visible to narrow your results. Unselecting will expand your search results. If you select more than one your results are limited to companies with both selections.

 

3) Enter additional keywords, such as HP, IBM, Microsoft, to identify partners. You can also enter multiples, e.g., “HP VMware,” to identify companies in partnership with both vendors.

 

4) Select a company from the results to see a more detailed view by selecting “Details” from the summary.

 

To start over, click on the top left iRUMBO logo.
