Expert Online Service for San Mateo, California Small Business Computers from World-class Engineers
Small businesses have traditionally been underserved by large network service firms. Many small companies allow themselves to become overly dependent on freelance consultants or small consulting firms who lack the size or broad skill sets to respond promptly or efficiently to network emergencies. Other small companies resort to giant service firms that employ personnel trained to provide by-the-numbers fixes for common issues but who do not have the experience and technical scope to handle the variety of configurations and absence of standardization that characterizes small business IT networks.
