When your computer needs repair, dealing with tech support can be extremely painful. Spending hours on the phone with a computer repair service isn't exactly the best way to spend your time.
That's where we come in.
Our philosophy is that computer skills alone are not enough. A computer consultant should have strong communication, empathy and social skills. You should come away feeling confident that you understood pretty much everything we said. Above all, you should feel that you were treated with respect. Everything else is secondary.
No one company should provide everything. That's why we specialize in a few key areas and avoid trying to be a "jack-of-all-trades". We feel that when you need urgent computer help, you need an expert that knows what they are doing, and not simply a "generalist" who attempts to know everything, but can resolve nothing. Here's an overview of some of our primary specialties:
Remember, many things can affect a computer system. Often, what is suspected to be the cause tends to be just a symptom of the true underlying problem. Our goal is to determine a cost-effective way to repair your computer without the loss of data. Given the costs of computers these days, repairing one must be balanced against the cost of replacing it. Knowing what your options are can help narrow that focus.
If you've ever lost data before, you can understand how unexpected it feels. What's worse is when your computer crashes and you find out that your backup wasn't working either. Our goal is to recover your files here, locally, if at all possible. Every year, over 30% of consumers will suffer from a hard drive crash: All your files, pictures and music can disappear in an instant. Rather than asking ourselves, "How did this happen," we need to focus on, "What should I do right away when my computer crashes?" A dying computer can be a ticking time-bomb; knowing what to do when it explodes can be a life saver.
Some viruses try to steal your passwords; others want to use your computer as a "hiding spot" for storing illegal or illicit material. Many viruses pretend to be helpful programs, games, screen savers or even anti-virus programs themselves. Some access files on your computer, some try to use your computer as a "breeding ground" for storing other stolen files, and others attempts to steal passwords, credit card information, or collect personal information about you.
On-Site, Emergency Response
Often, as is the case, computer problems happen at precisely the wrong moment. Computers crash, backups fail and productivity crawls to a halt. This type of "pain management" for dealing with a crisis situation is absolutely essential. By being responsive to your situation, you avoid the need to retain a computer professional on staff at your home or business.
Computer networks are wonderful things when they're not causing us headaches. Often, finding out the cause of a network problem is not always easy. The equipment may have been in place for some time, managed by someone else or otherwise neglected. Regardless, it's not working and you need to have it resolved. Nowadays, it's relatively easy and inexpensive to set up a network. Unfortunately, networks can be difficult to identify and resolve without an expert on-hand.
