About Us

TechSource’s beginnings date back to 2004 with the creation of two separate but synergetic companies – iTech and RightWay Technology. As the two organizations grew, their respective services and specialties became more defined. While iTech was rapidly growing in the areas of IT service and support, RightWay was providing organizations with highly specialized computer programming services and infrastructure planning. Eventually, there was a true need for the two to become one in order to meet the growing demands on both organizations. In 2012 the two companies completed a merger, placing a myriad of products and services under one roof. TechSource has since been providing customers with a more complete IT management experience unparalleled by any other company in Mississippi.
