People often ask us, “What does ‘Tizgee’ mean?” Tizgee is a play on the word “exit” (it is a stylized version of “exit” spelled backwards). Why “exit”? The company was founded on the premise that we wanted to help our clients exit the world of deceptive IT practices—the delivery of expensive and potentially unnecessary services to people who can be duped because they do not understand technical concepts.
So, why choose Tizgee?
Tizgee is a registered business entity in the Commonwealth of Virginia (SCC ID S4578771) and is a wholly-woman owned, SWaM-certified, Microbusiness-certified business (SWaM ID 707367).
