Having worked on all types and size business networks throughout her career Susan knows how to find network solutions specific to client needs. Once you know the technology you are interested in, she then schedules a free consultation. During the meeting she not only points out products and solutions that add value to your business, but she discusses issues that may be a concern. Once you find a product you like, she creates an installation strategy that best suits your needs and schedule. An integral part of this strategy is to negotiate the lowest possible price and still give you the technology you want. After a proposal is accepted, she works with her staff and vendors to give outstanding customer service.
When it comes to deploying technology solutions, and managing and protecting PCs and other technology equipment, Susan deploys unparalleled service that gives you the confidence that you are being managed and protected.
