Wondering whether your printer will work with your new computer? Can’t figure out how to move your client database to the new system? Technology Simplified makes the move as seamless as possible for you. For individual users and small-office environments, moving to a new computer or updating an operating system can be overwhelming and intimidating. We can help. We’ll install your upgrade or transition your platform, and we’ll stay with you while you test-drive your system and learn how it works!

Mac OS X upgrades and transitions


With the myriad of choices today —computers, printers, scanners, iPads, iPhones, and digital cameras — it’s tough to know what to get. How can you be sure all the parts of the technology puzzle will work compatibly together? Whether you just want to send digital pictures by email or need to integrate with an existing PC network, we’ll make sure your system works the way you want it to. We’ll determine your needs, evaluate your technology, and recommend both hardware and software solutions to help you meet your goals. What’s more, we’ll install and integrate all the parts for a stress-free, top-functioning system.

Mac system integration


Your computer can’t “find” your printer. The photos you took with your phone don’t show up on your laptop. Ever since you installed that new software program, your computer keeps crashing. Don’t worry. There’s no need to disconnect everything and lug it all to a repair shop. Technology Simplified offers a very user-friendly solution — we come to you! We not only take care of most problems right at your home or place of business, we may even be able to troubleshoot your problem with you over the phone or via a remote appointment.

Trouble-shooting


Newbies welcome! Wonder where your task bar went? What about the Start menu? Can you use Microsoft Word on a Mac? Get answers to these questions and more. We will teach you to navigate the new OS X environment, move your data from your old PC to your new Mac, and show you the joys of a great computing experience that "just works." Or if you’re already a Mac veteran, we’ll help you get the most out of your new Apple product.

PC to Mac / Mac to Mac migration


To get the most from your technology, you need to keep it maintained. Just like a car, preventative maintenance for your computer is easier and less expensive than repairs. We can help keep your computer humming, using built-in and third party utilities. And to keep your system in shape, we’ll show you how to back up your files, where to store them, and even set up an automated backup system that makes this often-neglected process painless and reliable. Backing up data is a necessity for absolutely everyone, not just businesses!

Computer maintenance and backup systems


The team at Technology Simplified will help you learn everything you need to know to enjoy your technology — from computers to iPhones and iPads. Whether you need to increase productivity in an office environment or just have more fun with photos and apps, we’ve got you covered. We’ll help you maximize your tech experience by clearly and simply explaining and demonstrating how things work. Plus, you’ll get plenty of opportunity for hands-on practice. Emailing, managing photos, taking voice memos, creating spreadsheets — whatever your need, our experts are happy to help.

Just to tell you again that John is a wonder. I hope you can keep him forever!
Not only does he take the time to fix thing, but figures out ways to make it easy for us elderly & challenged to use our equipment. And, he is a super nice young man.
