Key Points

We work ONLY with businesses ...

Computer geeks willing to work with home users are everywhere. We choose to focus solely on the needs of small businesses (like our own) with less than a hundred employees (most of our clients have less than a dozen). This allows us to be very effective at what we do... trying to be "all things to all people" always leads to a less effective solution.

We become a part of YOUR team ...

Our goal is for you to think of JPCI as an integral part of your organization... essentially, your own "in-house" IT department. We want to play a part in every solution, which means calling on us when you're still in the planning stages of a project so we can provide insights that will make the whole project as efficient as possilbe.

We're not just "computer guys" ...

We have many years of experience in just about every area of technology, not just computers and networking. If you have technical questions in other areas (sound, video, recording, streaming, computer-phone integration, videoconferencing or any other technical field), please ask. We've either already done it or we know someone who does!

We’ve all heard that a million monkeys banging on a million typewriters will eventually reproduce the entire works of Shakespeare. Now, thanks to the Internet, we know this is not true.

Our Typical Client:

Most of our clients have a networked, dedicated broadband connection (normally cable, DSL or fiber optic) between their network and the Internet in order to take the greatest advantage of all the Internet has to offer.

Our Philosophy:
JPCI operates under the philosophy that our computers are supposed to work for us rather than the other way around.. our goal is to provide a complete computer-based solution for your small business. We start out by sitting down with you and deciding what it is you want to accomplish, and then helping you decide the most cost-effective plan to get there (without buying more network than you really need or cutting too many corners so you can’t upgrade later). We have our client's servers and workatations custom-built to our specifications, based on your individual needs rather than a department store or mail-order "straight-out-of-the-box, what-we-have-is-what-you-get" solution (although we can also take a basic pre-built system and customize it for you as well). We also configure the network and software to provide you with a user-friendly and productive workflow. We connect your local network to the Internet securely, and allow access to only those employees that you authorize. We help you decide which specific applications you need to get your work done most effectively, and then integrate them into an overall "game plan" for your business. And finally, we help you to keep your network up.
