I’ve Chosen Focus Data Solutions TWICE

I’ve chosen Focus Data Solutions twice during my professional career at two different organizations. I value the personal relationship and deep interest Focus Data Solutions has in our partnership being mutually successful. The Solutions First Managed Services Program offers the strategic and technical knowledge we need to move our organization forward. I want our staff focused on our mission critical responsibilities and not their IT issues.

They worked with us to insure we had the necessary network safeguards in place to make remote operations seamless.

My Trusted Partner

The Focus Data Solutions team has been my trusted partner as my law firm has grown over the past twenty years. I have had no reason to consider any other IT companies. They have consistently provided solid advice and technological expertise as the demands and needs of our systems have increased. Their responsiveness to our calls regarding hardware or software, combined with the ability to quickly figure out the issue and get it resolved is invaluable. This has been especially so as much of our staff now works remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

They Are Much Faster Than In-House IT

Focus Data Solutions’ ability and willingness to address issues in real-time either in person or via remote access is much faster than in-house IT staff with whom I’ve worked at other firms.

As Long as They Are Around, We Are Not Switching.

Our IT needs are met by a consistent team that also provides an explanation, if needed or a future “how to” if needed. They are never bothered when we call and are always happy to care of us. Give them a shot! You won’t be sorry. I get cold calls all the time to switch IT providers. My standard line is “as long as Focus Data Solutions is around, we are not switching.”

Professional Service Organizations

That’s A Very Good Thing

Employees can contact FDS directly via phone call or the ticket system and request assistance as needed, including after hours in the event of an emergency. Staff is very personable and willing to help. The company is the right size for personal interaction and operates on a first name basis with our employees. The client survey after each service request tells us that Focus Data Solutions wants to know what they are doing right as well as where they can improve. IT is expensive and ever changing. It’s important to remember that network security and uptime are priceless for anyone running a business. With Focus Data Solutions, most of the time we forget we need them (or even have them) because we have few problems. I’d say that’s a very good thing.

What’s Your Primary Purpose?

When we have an issue with a new phone, software, hardware, etc., we use Focus Data Solutions’ service agent icon at the bottom of our screens and like David Blaine they log in or show up and fix it! THEY fix it! I don’t have to learn a new skill to get software or hardware to work. If you’re questioning if you should hire Focus Data Solutions, I’d ask you – “How many hours are you willing to waste on something that is not your primary purpose.”

Christopher Campagna, Braddock Commercial Real Estate
