We have been Computer System Builders for about 24 years. We build them to client specifications, and if a spec is needed, we can develop one by consulting with the client, or for the client. We build Servers with specific components that ensure a long stable machine life with good performance operating 24/7/365! We also build desktop and tower configuration workstations to meet the client's specific need. My workstations are built to run 10/7/365 unlike most consumer boxes which are built for about 3 hours use a day. We also configure "Build to Order" laptops of the ASUS and Lenovo manufactured lines. We are still building workstations with the Windows 7 Professional operating system, so that compatibility, usability, and stability are not a problem, for clients whose environment or applications are not presently supporting Windows 10 operating system. We also build windows 10 Pro Computer systems, built to spec, for clients who do not have Software Application barriers, currently preventing them from using Windows 10.
We can check your backup systems to confirm successfull recent restores and check your recovery plan. We evaluate Server/Servers, Workstations, Laptops , and Peripherals. We can verify your control measures for Firewalls, Virus, Spyware, and Spam. We then offer our recommendations.
We can check your Passwords and Network documentation, as current documentation is critical for business continuity in event of a catastrophe. We can also check your switches, routers, cabling, and internet connectivity.
