Featured local company Digital Link 

This week we are featuring a local company. Derrick Meyer is an I.T. Specialist with Digital Link. Derrick is a fantastic resource for all your I.T questions. We had the pleasure of asking him a few questions and below are his answers.

1.How long have you been working as an I. T. Specialist? 

I have been working in I.T. for 7 years now.  (5 years part time 2 years full time)

2.What is an I.T. Specialist?

It is the easy way to say I handle technology.  Everything from your personal computer running slow to full scale server installation and configuration.  From iOS to Windows to Linux, iPhone Android or Windows phones, iPads, Nexus tables and more.  If it is giving you issues or you need a hand with it – give me a call.

3.Who is your best client and why?

While I am more than happy to cater to individuals and their home or business needs, my perfect client is a small business.  Digital Link prides itself in providing cost effective services to small business (Anywhere from a sole proprietorship to a 12-15 terminal office)

4.What kind of I.T problems do you specialize in and what do you enjoy working on most?

I specialize in small accounting businesses, non-profits and first-server situations.  I really enjoy helping companies find cost effective ways to do things.  Recently I was able to help a non profit accomplish their IT goals for $22,000 less than they were expecting to spend.  This provided savings that went right back into their programs.  It’s fantastic.

5.How can we get ahold of you?

Here is what are clients are saying about us!!

I purchased a new home and moved most of my furniture and listed my current home. I had several viewings but no offers so after almost 80 days on the market I decided to stage it with Unforgettable Spaces. I had been looking at their website and all the before and after pictures were amazing! Stephanie simply looked at pictures of my rooms that I emailed to her and knew what she needed. They were in and out of my home within an hour. The very next people to view put in an offer and it now sold after 5 days!

I would recommend staging now to anyone!
