- On-Site Service. We provide on-site hardware and software diagnostics and repair to get your systems running again in the event of a system failure.Our on-site service means that you don’t have to take your computer apart and load it in the car to have it serviced. Here are some of the other advantages of on-site service:
- Avoid the hassle and risk of disconnecting your computer components and delivering them to a repair center.
- Learn about how your computer works, how to fix it, and how to upgrade your system. Most of our clients can provide their own software and hardware support after the first year with minimal support from us.
- Often computer problems can be related to environmental conditions (power problems, electrical grounding, poor phone line conditions, lack of adequate surge protection, temperature, moisture, smoke, dust). An on-site technician can evaluate these factors.

- Same-Day Response. Because we limit our list of clients and maintain open scheduling, we can usually respond to emergency calls within the same day at no additional cost to you. On occasion, we’ve been known to have someone on-site in less than ten minutes of receiving the phone call requesting support! (Your results may vary).
