The overwhelming popularity of low cost notebooks – now available with better in-built processors, graphics and gaming options – has made PCs and desktops seem obsolete. The market shift is further heading towards handheld devices such as smart-phones, tablets, and pads, since these offer far superior connectivity options and multimedia capabilities.
According to the market research company IDC, more notebooks were sold last year in the US than desktops and the phenomenon is spreading worldwide. The implications of this are simple enough. The more the laptops, the less each consumer has from the pool of dedicated support staff. This makes it more worthwhile for laptop buyers to approach third party computer tech support agencies for more affordable support for their software troubleshooting needs. Plus such services work remotely to fix laptop issues and provide end-to-end support starting with installation, configuration, security, and lifetime support to fix PC issues.
Computer slowdown caused by junk temp files and unused registries can be taken care of. Get the service plan you want for your home and office and remote support to take care of it. Try to find a service provider by visiting their website and looking for resolution rates and customer satisfaction. Find out whether the services provided meet or surpass your expectations by checking for any complaints at ConsumerAffairs.com. Most computer tech support companies have what is basically a type of web based service that can be availed via a toll free helpline number. This means that you actually get a hint of what kind of support you are in for depending on preliminary inquiries and the time to servicing.
There are other ways of flagging a software support agency. One could look for certification standards and partner status. Microsoft, for example, gives out certifications to technicians at all skill levels such as Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS), Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA), Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCTIP), Microsoft Certified Master (MCM), and Microsoft Certified Architect (MCA) which involves skill tests to assess proficiency of onsite and offsite computer support technicians. Microsoft also has partner programs for such agencies and these are the things that you should look for when you visit their website.
Getting onto the sitemap page is a kind of shortcut that goes past the whole design and user interface to tell you what’s under the hood of any online computer support service. No doubt we feel that an unattractive website could offer no worthwhile service, and this holds true for most product and e-commerce websites. There is, however, the fact the expensive web designs usually come out of the customer’s pocket, and where price meets quality, it’s probably a better idea to determine the latter. Any good service will not only offer support from a remote access to your PC or laptop, but will also help you get your system operational through step-by-step instructions on their toll free helpline. Once online, you can choose a payment plan (it’s also a good idea to see if they take PayPal as a mode of payment and that the page where you enter your financial details is a secured url) and get add on services for all sorts of computer software (plug-ins, drivers, etc) and applications software (MS Office, antivirus download, etc).
