The majority of homes today have at least one computer, and that’s unlikely to be the full extent of the technology. Everyone has a smartphone, and there may be streaming devices, modems, routers, or printers, and lots and lots of power cords! When something goes awry with any of this tech, homeowners can feel stuck. In an office setting, there’s the IT support desk, but at home, you could be relying on Google search, YouTube videos, and the efforts of a digital-native teen. We are well versed in residential technology issues and can help!
Doing your own research is great, but it can get overwhelming. A search for a Wi-Fi-enabled printer nets hundreds of options, rankings, and reviews. You try to evaluate a laptop or printer on function, quality, and price, but all these other elements get mentioned. You don’t even know what they mean! How can you ask the right questions? We can narrow the field and make recommendations based on your needs.
Maybe you usually go to a big-box store to buy your technology. Yes, they can have good deals, but often there’s a reason that laptop is so cheap or that printer is such a great deal. These temptingly priced technologies can be just too slow to do the job, or they’ll break down sooner. Or that astounding deal on a color printer is going to backfire on you down the road because the cost of the ink is crazy!
We will take the time to get to know the issues you’re facing and how you plan to use the product. We can steer you towards tech that is good value and makes sense for the problem you’re trying to fix. You don’t go home with something that duplicates or doesn’t work well with your other tech.
The best technology is going to be a combination of the right product at the right quality at the right price.
Beyond Buying – IT Support for You
When it comes to replacing or repairing technology, it helps also to get a second opinion. You wouldn’t want to get surgery when a week with a splint would do the trick, right? Well, you don’t want to buy a new computer to solve a problem that could be fixed by taking off under-performing but processing-power sucking applications. Or pay to repair a device when you could pay the same amount for a new one that works even better in the way you need.
IT support isn’t only for enterprise-sized businesses. We can help a homeowner:
• evaluate tech options
• identify good deals
• make smart upgrades
• diagnose computer problems
• install security measures
• backup data
• connect devices
