“What Every Business Owner Must Know About Hiring An Honest, Competent, On-Time, Fairly-Priced Computer Consultant”
From The Desk of: Maria Partridge

There is no shortage of horror stories about fly-by-night computer repair shops causing problems as a result of their unethical or incompetent behavior. I’m sure if you talk to your own friends and colleagues you will get an ear-full of the unfortunate experiences they have encountered in this area.
You see, the computer industry, along with a lot of other industries, has its own share of unethical businesses that will always try to take advantage of uneducated buyers. Sometimes this out o greed for your money, and often it’s simply because they don’t have the skills and competency to do the job right, but won’t tell you that up front. Fortunately, businesses like these are the minority, but we know they exist because we have had a number of customers come to us to clean up the disasters they have caused.
Another big problem of the computer industry is that it is not regulated like many other industries. Automotive repair shops, electricians, plumbers, lawyers, realtors, dentists, doctors, accountants and even restaurants (to name a few) are heavily regulated to protect the consumer from receiving substandard work or getting ripped off. However, the computer industry is still highly unregulated and there aren’t any laws in existence to protect the consumer.
Anyone who can hang out a shingle can promote themselves as a computer “expert.” Even if they are honestly trying to do a good job for you, their inexperience can cost you dearly in your network’s speed and performance or in lost or corrupt data files. That is why we decided to offer this report.
