Testimonial of the Day
I have worked with Doug to provide installation and IT services to business customers who did not have an internal IT staff or a proven consultant of their own. Doug is one of my best IT professionals because he does his homework by contacting customers and doing walkthroughs and estimates. Best of all, he is committed to customer service even visiting a customer at midnight to fix a wireless router. If you own a business and want a hard working IT consultant as your primary IT contact or even to back up your staff when they need extra help, you should call Doug and know you'll get a hard worker at a great value.October 12, 2012 – Daniel Lewis - Sales Consultant Team Lead
