Computer Techs closes its door for good
Computer Techs has closed its doors for good.

However, since we've always been an on-site and remote service business, Computer Techs has never had a shop - nor any "doors" to close like a traditional brick-and-mortar computer repair shop does.

Have you noticed the date of this newsletter in the subject line? Happy April Fools Day. Computer Techs is still in business, and we have no plans of shutting down. In fact the past 12 months have been the busiest ever for us since we began in 2003. Thank you for trusting Computer Techs for your computer and technology help, and all of your referrals.

Get regular computing device maintenance and priority support
It's time to be proactive about maintaining your computing devices - rather than calling after problems get out-of-control. With reports of websites and databases getting hacked occurring on a daily basis, and the increasing chance of your personal information being compromised, it’s more important than ever to keep your computing devices secure, up-to-date and maintained.

Thanks to the peace-of-mind that our Computer Maintenance Plan provides, clients that sign-up for the plan don't have to worry about the seemingly constant barrage of updates, security patches and computer hackers. They also get priority callbacks and messaging replies.

With our Computer Maintenance Plan we will maintain, update and check the security on your computer - and other devices (when performed on-site) - on a convenient regularly scheduled basis.
