Excedeo Blog

Excedeo has been serving the San Diego area since 2003, providing IT Support such as technical helpdesk support, computer support, and consulting to small and medium-sized businesses.

Let’s face it. When most people think about Information Technology, they know their company needs this type of support, but they’d rather focus on other aspects of their business – what they love most, what inspired them to start their company. Nonetheless, successful Chief Executive Officers and Chief Financial Officers understand that securing a reliable partner in IT is key to operating more efficiently and profitably.


Successful businesses take proactive measures to ensure a stable technological infrastructure because they know that the cost of downtime can be devastating. Companies that soar far and above their competition take it a step further and build systems that maximize productivity. They look at the big picture. They look toward the future.


That’s where Mariela Collins and her team at Excedeo come in.


Mariela Collins launched Excedeo 12 years ago because she recognized that small and mid-size companies need the full service of an in-house IT Department without the high staffing costs. Having spent 20 years in leadership positions at internationally recognized tech companies, she has earned a reputation as an agent of change, constantly seeking out ways to better serve her clients. Mariela mastered best practices and found ways to improve upon them. The result: innovation that makes a significant impact on her clients’ bottom line. Mariela realized that she could best serve clients by launching her own company, one that exceeds expectations and offers world-class customer service.


Today, Mariela’s team at Excedeo adds tremendous value to companies by providing cutting-edge, competitive IT outsourcing. Providing world-class customer service, Excedeo looks beyond a company’s current IT needs and effectively anticipates future opportunities to improve processes.


Customers describe Mariela as a passionate and tenacious problem-solver who thinks outside the box to create ideal solutions and maximizes efficiency. She is committed to providing round-the-clock IT service so her clients can focus on what they do best.


Mariela says there’s nothing more satisfying than helping clients meet their goals and eliminate stress over IT issues. Those she serves consistently tell her that they never worry about technological infrastructure and support because they know they’re safe in her hands. Clients praise Mariela for going far beyond the call of duty, thinking beyond the scope of any particular project, and introducing dynamic new solutions that help achieve each company’s long-term vision. These are just some of the reasons Mariela was recently recognized as a Top Tech Executive Finalist in the San Diego Business Journal annual awards for the region.
