What is TechAid.me
TechAid.me is a private company started by Jay Walker to help out some friends with startup business by providing technical solutions to business needs. Some of the business needs where Point of Sale, Loss Prevention security camera’s, WiFi services, networking services, Phone System services, PC and computing services and web site development. Through time TechAid.me has added 1099 partners to help out as needed providing a larger more cohesive support team. TechAid.me is focused on providing customer first, find a solution to the need, rather than the traditional sell a solution which most technology providers do.
The traditional technology service providers approach to sell only solutions they are trained in or have practiced may provide a lower error rate solution, but the solution normally is not what the customer needs, but rather what the service provider can do well. So many options available, it is unfair to a customer to give them a solution that may not be best for them, but happens to be what the service provider is good at providing. Instead we will find the right solution for the customer, and due to our background and quick ability to master technology, we implement faster and easier than the customer could on their own. We enable the right solution.
