When you just want IT to work!

There are a lot of computer shops out there that you can call up to fix an issue or install a piece of equipment. They might be able to get you out of crisis mode, but they aren’t looking at the full picture.

At PC Technologies, we understand business. We consult. We provide solutions to solve everyday challenges. We just happen to fix computers as well.

We believe (and have proven) that if you proactively manage technology, run maintenance religiously, and monitor a business network, everyday issues and downtime will be greatly reduced.

This is what makes us different than your typical tech support company. Sure, we can fix computer issues when you have them, but our specialty is preventing them in the first place.

      • I highly recommend PC Technologies for any of your IT and/or computer needs
        Practice Manager at Robert GR Lang, MD Inc

        Jeff has provided computer components and IT services to our medical practice since 2007. He has seen us through a system conversion, office move, and EMR implementation, providing the peripherals and support needed to make a smooth transition each time. He and his staff are prompt, professional, and price conscious. I highly recommend PC Technologies for any of your IT and/or computer needs

      • Gets it fixed fast
        CPA

        Jeff and his staff installed a major computer upgrade for my office. There was no down time for my staff, the system works great and whenever there's glitch, Jeff, or one of his staff, gets it fixed fast.

      • No more having to take the computer into the store
        Director at Washington Gemological Laboratory

        I have relied on Jeff and his crew for not only minor 'bugs' that occur but also for swapping out the entire data from an older laptop into the one I currently use. They have always been able to do the job and quickly. Most of the time they are able to resolve the issue over the phone, while controlling my computer from their office. Love it!! Makes my life so much easier. No more having to take the computer into the store.

      • Jeff is the IT consultant for our company.
        Citizen Action Network at Freedom Foundation

        He goes the extra mile to ensure that all of our computer infrastructure is running smoothly. When we do encounter problems Jeff is quick to respond. He has become integral to our team--so much so, we should call him a staff member rather than a consultant.

      • PC Tech is a great place to get all of your IT needs.
        Branch Manager / Loan Officer at Weststar Pacific Mortgage

        Jeff is always available and works with you on the best possible solutions to ones needs. I would recommend PC Tech to anyone that is running a business and does not want to deal with IT.

      Google My Business App Changing to Google Business Profile

      Frankly, there will no longer be a Google My Business service before very long. Instead, business owners will have access to a web-based Google Business Profile sometime in 2022.

      Google Business Profile is Intended to Simplify Things for Businesses

      With the transition from a standalone application to an integrated Google Business Profile, all it will take for a business owner to access their online tools is to enter their company’s name into the Google Search Box. Doing so will return the typical results one might expect as well as the business-centric tools that Google has to offer.

      With Google Business Profile in place, you’ll be able to do more to manage your online presence. For instance:

      • Google Search and Google Maps will be usable as a means of verifying your Google Business Profile.
      • Google Search can also be used to chat with customers through your Business Profile, with read receipts being controlled through Search and Maps.
      • Google is also experimenting with call history features and call forwarding.

      This will also make any online marketing activities you undergo through Google easier for you to manage, with new tools like the local search campaign budget Performance Planner.

      What Features are You Looking Forward to the Most?

      While this rebranding/migration will take a while to fully implement, it’s always good to remain apprised of these kinds of developments so you are in the best position to benefit from them. We’ll be there so you can be sure that you have the technology necessary to take full advantage of any opportunities that come your way.

      Tech is a Big Seller on Black Friday and Cyber Monday

      Black Friday

      The day after Thanksgiving, Black Friday, is often touted as the busiest shopping day in the United States—a title it has held for the past 15 years. Because of this phenomenon, many retail stores announce their Black Friday deals ahead of time and expand them into the day afterward.

      Cyber Monday

      Cyber Monday does not have as long or as storied a reputation as Black Friday; rather, it’s an extension of Black Friday that takes place on the following Monday. Cyber Monday started at shop.com in 2005, but has expanded in scale and scope every year since. In 2020, Cyber Monday was the largest retail day in history, bringing in close to $11 billion, due in large part to the COVID-19 pandemic.

      2021 Extends Holiday Shopping

      Many retailers have responded to the lingering supply chain issues caused by the pandemic to expand their holiday shopping into the online space, offering more deals online than ever before. Most retailers are doing what they can to make sure that their consumers have chances to get the deals they want just in time for the holidays.

      Technology is Front and Center

      You can never go wrong with technology as a gift, especially in 2021 when there is so much to choose from. Here are some of the more popular gifts that you might see during your post-Thanksgiving holiday shopping shenanigans.

      Amazon Fire Stick 4K with Alexa Voice Remote

      The newest iteration of the popular HDMI streaming media dongle features voice controls through Alexa and is 4K-capable. Starting at $25.

      Apple AirPods (Gen 2)

      Apple’s popular wireless earbuds. Starting at $89.

      Samsung Chromebook 4

      With an 11.6-inch screen, this laptop is a good value for people looking for a reliable laptop for everyday tasks. Starting at $129.

      Facebook Portal Go and Portal+

      The Portal Go and Portal+ are video chat interfaces that integrate with Facebook Messenger. Starting at $199.99. 

      We can’t cover everything here, but if you are looking to pick up some computer hardware or other electronics, late November will be a prime time to do so.

      What’s on your holiday wish list? Let us know in the comments.

      What We Can Learn from the Facebook Outage

      Let’s discuss the situation that we all witnessed, and the lessons that all businesses can take away from it.

      The True Scope of the Outage Went Far Beyond Facebook

      Well, sort of. The reality is that “Facebook” is/was far more than just the social network that goes by that name. Throughout its history, Facebook has also spent over $23 billion in acquiring other companies and assets, from the unlaunched web operating system Parakey back in 2007 to the CRM (customer relationship management) platform Kustomer in November of 2020.

      In no uncertain terms: Meta, the company that owns Facebook, also owns many other things… many of which also went down along with Facebook.

      The problem is that a lot of businesses rely on Facebook and its associated applications and services for a lot. It’s a known fact that WhatsApp, a VoIP and messaging application, is used by a lot of businesses. However, those businesses were without this tool for the entire time Facebook was experiencing their outage. The same went for any website that allowed its users to log in using Facebook Login… their users were locked out for the duration of the outage, and therefore couldn’t make any purchases.

      If there’s any takeaway that businesses should receive from this whole situation, it’s clearly not to put all of their eggs in one basket—Facebook’s or otherwise. However, this is sometimes unavoidable, particularly if they’re utilizing a unified workplace platform. So, what can be done?

      Your Company Needs a Backup Plan

      Let’s face facts for a moment: for all the businesses that were suddenly restricted when Facebook went down, the impact if Microsoft or Google went down would be far greater. Alternatively, you could very well be using a line of business application that is completely unaffiliated with either that could go down. Either way, the impact would be the same: your business would be stuck.

      We frequently talk about business continuity planning, and for good reason. However, we typically talk about it in terms of a disaster taking a direct impact on your place of business: power loss, fire, or equipment damage preventing you from accessing your business’ resources and causing data loss. However, your business continuity could just as easily be affected by one of your providers suffering downtime as well. Is it incredibly likely? No… but that doesn’t mean you should ignore the risk.

      You need to have a strategy at the ready that addresses these kinds of complications and the means your team members have to adapt to them, regardless of whether they’re working in-house or remotely. There’s really no telling when these kinds of issues will rear up, and when your company will be amongst those impacted by them.

      We Can Help Your Company Prepare for Any Kind of Disaster

      There are just too many potential issues that could strike to risk your business and its data… or for that matter, its productivity. Our experienced team can put you in the position to avoid most of these issues or at least greatly reduce the influence they have on your operations.
