I bring this commitment to QUALITY to the work we do at Stratocent Technologies. In IT, there are many ways to cut corners or do things on the cheap. However, while it may not seem like such a big deal to cut corners in IT, when disaster strikes, or you have to be able to access critical data on the fly, or your business stops because you can’t figure out how to get to your email, doing IT with a focus on QUALITY is not only important, it’s critical.
We play hard at Stratocent. IT can be a lot of fun, there’s always new toys being offered in the marketplace, new gadgets, new ways to get things done. Our commitment to quality keeps us away from flash in the pan products of the week, and keeps our focus on what’s important – your data and your ability to get to it easily at any time from any place, while keeping it safe from people you don’t want to see it.
Frankly, I love making computers, email, networks, work. I love making it possible for you to focus on your business instead of swearing at your computer. Let’s talk and see what we can do for you and your business!
