Consulting rate - variable
We are unique in providing a value rate service. Unlike others, we don't charge by the clock - but attempt to keep the charges within the value of service being provided. If you would like to discuss a continuing maintenance service for your practice or business, we can provide a flat-rate estimate to cover all of your computer needs - including 7 x 24 hour monitoring of your systems, 24 hour emergency response, backups and more for an attractive price. Let us take care of your business or practice so you can focus on what you do best!
We are happy to give you a "not-to-exceed" estimate on the work. You'll know before hand, what the cost of service is. If we believe the cost of the service exceeds the value of the work or equipment, we'll discuss what's best for you. This way, you can make an informed decision. (Our estimate may include travel time to and from your place of business and will include 1 hour minimum charge. We recommend a preliminary email or phone consultation first, then depending on your issues, an onsite visit can be scheduled for additional evaluation.)

When your computer dies, it may still be possible to collect the information on the hard disk. Although not always possible, depending on its importance, you may want to attempt a recovery. This is a great opportunity to discuss "backups".
