Helping Entrepreneurship Thrive | Helping Entreprenuers Like Us Succeed
"My main purpose is to see that my client’s business succeed, and in most cases, achieve its goal of making a transition to more efficient and profitable systems used to conduct their business. This typically entails some use of newer technology."
"In most cases, when introducing technology into a business system, I bring more to the table than just website or software development, and there are no sales commissions involved in my pricing. I have been involved in improving systems and using technology to increase my client’s bottom line since 2012 as owner and President of Click IT, and have a vast amount of experience, including doing the development work myself, as opposed to relying on others, although managing them is a large part of my work as well."
