Advice and Consulting Services
Home & Personal Consulting ServicesTrying to understand and select new technologies is not easy. Big companies hire teams of IT experts and consultants to help them understand and choose the best solution for their technology needs. What about you, the home user? You donâ€™t have to go enroll in a computer science degree just to pick out your next computer or cell phone. I am available to help you with your next technology purchase. To this end, I will give you enough detail to help you understand your options without overwhelming you with technical jargon. My background in support as well as networking will allow me to understand your needs and to translate them into technical requirements. If you need something very specific or obscure, I can also help you locate that hard to find part. In addition, I understand that you want the best deal possible. I will help you find the best match between price and performance and will explain the trade-off decisions that you will have to make. If possible, I may be able to help you get an even lower price through my distributor connections and fellow consultants. Please feel free to contact me with any pre-purchase advice or consulting requests you may have. I am available for help with your common purchases such as computers, PDAs, cell phones, laptops, home theatre PCs, and video game technology. The previous list is just a sampling of areas where I can be of assistance. Please feel free to contact me with any specific requests.
In addition to normal purchasing advice, I can also provide assistances with networking and system maintenance. Which word processing program is really the best? What is the best software for burning my MP3s? Does my home network need a router or a switch? If you need help answering these or similar questions I can provide the assistance and help that you need. I can help you understand the capabilities of your current software and hardware and help you find new opportunities and options. Whether you know what you need or just have a vague idea, please contact me today and I would be glad to help you on your way.
Small Business AdvisingIn business, you need to make smart decisions. Unfortunately, many times it is hard for small business owners to understand the technological challenges facing their businesses. Please allow me help you understand your needs and to work with you to discover cost-effective solutions. I will offer you my technological background and analytical problem solving skills in order to address your needs and help you discover new opportunities. I truly understand the acquisition and planning process. For my Masterâ€™s thesis I conducted a research study evaluating effective IT decision making. In my study, I interviewed IT decision makers from small businesses in diverse industries in order to discover the best practices and to identify the common mistakes that IT decision makers must avoid in order to be successful. I will use the lessons I learned and the secrets I found to help you with your acquisition and purchasing challenges. My small business consulting services include product evaluation, network analysis and planning, as well as service selection. Please feel free to contact me to ask me any questions and to begin a dialogue. I look forward to hearing from you and starting a partnership.
