Services Available For Businesses and Business Users:
- Business Consulting.
Starting a business? Expanding a business? Looking to automate your business workflow in the most efficient way possible?
We can help. Have a hot new idea? We have extensive entrepreneurial experience with business development, business plans, investor funding, and more.
We start with a Needs Assessment to determine purchase recommendations for your specific requirements You could be throwing your money away if you make critical purchasing decisions on your own or on the advice of a computer salesman (or even people you know who have been "doing it themselves" with computers for years). Meeting one's own needs does not qualify anyone to advise others on how to meet their needs - some things are best left to experienced professionals. We do NOT sell computer equipment and do NOT earn commissions on any purchase you make, so you can be certain that our advice is NOT motivated by any desire to make commissions by getting you to spend more money than you need to spend. This is what separates a consultant from a salesperson. We specialize in analyzing a client's needs and recommending a complete package of the hardware, software, and accessories that will get the job done most efficiently. You will get a "shopping list" of exactly what we recommend, and why our recommendations will fit your needs. We will also assist you in dealing with the vendor should there be any problems with your order.
- New Equipment
The transition to new computer equipment can be very disruptive to the workflow in a busy business. We specialize in quick setup (after hours if necessary) and transfer of data from your old system to the new one. We can also convert old files to be compatible with new software and even new operating systems and platforms (ie, switching from Mac to PC or PC to Mac, or Mac OS 9 to Mac OS X).
- New Equipment
& Software Training.
You will invest
thousands of dollars in new equipment and software. Why spend days
or weeks of trial-and-error learning how to use your new
equipment, when a few hours of consulting time can get you there
much faster? We can even take your knowledge and abilities
beyond what you could do by yourself in any amount of time?
Time is money. Isn't that why you bought a new computer -
to be more efficient? Whether we helped you set up your new
equipment, or you have equipment already that you are not
utilizing to its fullest potential, we can help!
- Single computers
If your business is growing, you may be adding computers faster than you are replacing them. You need to make the old stuff talk to the new stuff! Networks allow for centralized data backup, sharing of files, sharing of printers (why buy a printer for every computer?), sharing of Internet access, shared faxing, and even multi-user database software. We can network both PCs and Macs to each other and to printers and file servers quickly and effectively. We can show you how to maximize the usefulness of your network to make your business run smoother. We can also show you how to make one computer do as much as possible in offices with several computer users sharing one computer. An effective network can also make a used computer an excellent value by making it much more useful than it would be as a stand-alone unit.
Every business has a
different structure, a different workflow, and different data
management needs. Often, commercial "off-the-shelf" software such
as QuickBooks or Peachtree is NOT flexible enough, and your business has to adapt to the way the software works, instead of the other way around. Our custom database software is networkable and can be hosted as multi-user databases on Mac, PC, and mixed networks. Client/server solutions are available for larger networks with 8 or more clients and heavy usage.

graphics, and other data files between different platforms and
application programs. Many of our clients have been truly amazed
at our abilities to export information from old software and
import it into their new software. We can also network Macs &
PCs for sharing printers, files, databases, and Internet

- Mobile Solutions
Over our 10+ years of
experience in the computer industry, we've seen (and helped) many
users make the "move" from a desktop to a laptop

computer. If you use
your computer more than a just a little, a laptop can be more than
twice as valuable and useful, since it goes everywhere that you
go. If you travel, or meet with clients outside of your
office, a laptop is practically a necessity for today's
well-equipped businessperson. Mobile solutions unleash an entirely
new level of creativity when used with digital

actually need to have a portable computer, whether it will
supplement or completely replace your desktop computer, and which
features are the most important to consider when choosing one.

your money if you consult an expert both before and after
