Computer Software/Hardware Purchases Consulting
Though we chose not to sell computer software or hardware, we can help you discover what you need and even assist you in the purchase. The most successful long term purchases occur when goals for the purchase are defined and matched to the product you wish to buy BEFORE the actual purchase. Often, there are free or low-cost options we can recommend to meet your needs.

With three decades of experience using computer software and hardware, we have uncovered a lot of problems and continue to be interested in unraveling these kinds of puzzles.
