Gemar provided rapid, professional service at a very reasonable cost. Best of all, he fixed the problem, which i had thought was intractable. He got right to the heart of the problem and devised a simple approach to fixing it. He implemented it essentially overnight and brought the computer back in working order. He installed the computer in the office and waited to ensure it was working correctly. I would highly recommend him.Dec 19, 2018Verified
Gemar replaced the motherboard of an expensive computer of mine. I had tried to resolve the issue through two other service providers, but neither one was able to finish the job. Gemar was extremely professional, responsive and provided great value. I would go back to him in a heart-beat.Mar 30, 2018

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?SFT periodically offers promotions as well as discounts. We value our customer relationships & encourage them to opt-in via text for not only great offers but periodic updates & tech tips on what you can do to optimize your devices. We also like to keep our customers informed as to what new technologies have been added to our industry.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?With SFT, we understand that structure is important. We also understand that sometimes situations warrant moving away from it. Our usual workflow includes our initial contact & consultation with our customer, going over the plan for resolution, agreeing on a date & time for remote connection, executing the plan for resolution, & testing. It is during the initial consultation that our flexible payment methods are discussed with our customer. The consultation also involves retrieving customer contact information so that we can check back on the services provided as well as give tips on how to avoid future issues.
