Desktop Support

No, we don't have cute black and white cars, but we can help you with your business' desktop support needs. And we don't claim to be geeks because, well, we don't think you need a geek. We think you need an experienced technician who speaks plain English and can understand business processes and needs.

If you need a 24/7/365 call center, we can provide that. If you need on-site support, we can get there quickly. And, through the use of GoToMeeting remote control software, we can resolve many problems over the phone, speeding your time to resolution.

You can retain us for ongoing support, buy one of our packages, (like wireless installation for two PCs for $175) or call us up for just a buck a minute (10 - 5 Central Time, M-F, no holidays, 15 minute minimum).
