IT Youngster

The New Faces of IT

Think back to the days when you played on your Sony Play Station, bought your first DVD (maybe even online) and were introduced to Google, which made it’s first appearance in 1998. Oh the 90’s! They were great! And they taught us a lot about technology. It was the big start of the technological age. Sure, technology was around before then, but the 90’s are when we really started to embrace it and make it a part of our lives. Businesses, even smaller ones, started adding computers to their offices and storing data there. Email changed the way we communicated, and texting started to take root. It was a brave, new world.

The catch was that some of the company tech employees < really had no idea what they were doing. They were used to dealing with less intricate machines and weren’t even sure what a megabyte or a jpeg was. It wasn’t their fault. This was all brand new. Untried. New territory. Downright frightening! No Commodore 64 or Thicknet here! There were exceptions of course, but some were struggling to keep up with this foreign way of doing business that they didn’t understand and weren’t even sure they wanted to.

That’s when the “youngsters” swooped in and offered to help. There they were in all their glorious youth and tech knowledge, ready to click, click, click and fix everything that mysteriously refused to work for anyone else. Ah yes, the young dynamos, who then decided that they could make a living helping those who couldn’t help themselves – technologically speaking.

That was the beginning of their new venture, providing computer related service and repairs to those who were less skilled in the area of technology or who just didn’t want to bother with it. No, this wasn’t a new concept. Many had come before them offering computer services and repairs. The difference was the depth of knowledge, skill and expertise they brought to the game. Man, what an advantage they had! Their young brains could grab hold of the ever-changing technology world and run with it. Businesses were busy and didn’t have time to deal with it and had found that the “old school” computer guys were kind of out of their league as technology began to advance. These young ones were the new kids in town, and they were going to take the town by storm!

They were (and still are) the new faces of IT. They will take your computer problems and make them magically disappear. What could slow your business down or bring it to a complete halt, they can fix in no time at all. These guys know IT and they know how to use it and fix it. None of the old school methods for them. They know stuff that the rest of us don’t have a clue about. Even the creepy stuff, like the dark web and trojan horse viruses. The what??? So much stuff to wrap your head around! It might be easier to just call them and let them deal with it. After all, they are young and tech-savvy, so you don’t have to be!

Give them a call at MicroAge Chilliwack, 1-844-773-6788, and let them take the weight of computer maintenance and repair off your shoulders so you can focus on your business! Let’s face it, they have more IT knowledge than us and the old school guys put together. Might as well use it!
