Scott Mainellis provides superior IT support and mobile technology expertise through Up & Running Systems, based in Bartlett, IL

Up & Running was born out of a desire to provide the technology help that small businesses need to succeed, whether they have 2 computers or 50+. Back in 1995, our founder, Scott Mainellis, recognized that small businesses need knowledgeable and trustworthy help when it comes to setting up and maintaining computers, networks, mobile, and other tech.

More than 25 years later, we are still focused on providing superior technology assistance made possible by building positive working relationships with our customers.

Businesses thrive when they can rely on trusted associates who are looking out for their best interests. At Up & Running, we work alongside our clients to offer the best strategy, implementation, and solutions for computer, mobile, and other tech issues that may otherwise hinder the development and growth of a successful business.
