The RetroTechs Celebrates 25 Years of Computer Support for Atlanta Businesses
The RetroTechs are celebrating 25 years supporting Atlanta businesses — delivering old-fashioned personal service in an ever-changing technology landscape. We provide our clients with a level of professional IT service typically only available to large corporations.
25 Years of Computer Technology
In two-and-a-half decades, the rapid advancements in technology have been astounding.
In 1990, the Web looked like this—and most people had no idea that it existed:
Computers looked like this:
The latest and greatest operating systems were Mac System 6 and Windows 3.0.
When we launched, many business didn’t even have a single computer. Those that did had one or two machines with perhaps 1MB of RAM and a 20MB hard drive.
Today’s computers have thousands of times as much memory and mass storage.
There were few options other than those beige desktop computers with small, bulky “CRT” screens.
Today we support Mac and Windows computers and servers, tablets and a great variety of other devices — on-site and via remote access.
Cell phones looked like this:
Now, we support the integration of smartphones into the business workflow.
And you looked like this:
…or maybe you didn’t.
And, of course, Leo DiCaprio looked like this:
…but not anymore.
- Computers often cost as much as a used car
- There were very few electronics or office supply chain stores offering in-store tech support
- Software typically had learning curves that went beyond the scope of the casual user
Help Is On The Way
The RetroTechs were founded to meet the needs of businesses who had no dependable or knowledgeable resource for computer support. Specializing in the needs of creative design shops, we frequently saw situations where businesses had invested significant money in these exciting and powerful new tools but had nowhere to turn for hardware repair and software guidance. Computers don’t work perfectly and businesses—especially small ones—often didn’t (and still don’t) have an in-house IT staff. We saw that very real need and thus The RetroTechs, then known as Demographics, was born.
In recent years we’ve been conditioned to think of computers as disposable but that certainly wasn’t the case twenty-five years ago! If you spent from $2500 to $6000 on a single computer, chances were you weren’t going to trash it for the next year’s model.
The RetroTechs were there then and are here now to ensure your computing environment’s longevity and integrity. Two facts that we know:
- Technology may be disposable
- Your time and your data are not
Providing Professional IT Support for 25 Years and Counting
Whatever your business may be, ours is keeping it running smoothly, and we’ve doing it for a quarter of a century. We’ve lasted because of experience, integrity and dependability. That cheerful person behind the support counter at the local computer store may have started a week ago, and may not be there the next time you need them. Retail stores also cater specifically to consumers who have very different needs than businesses. The RetroTechs know the technology that creative and innovative businesses need and can help you build a strong foundation for your business. We have the experience, we’re here to stay, and we’re always just a phone call away.
We’re proud of our 25 years of helping businesses succeed, but that doesn’t mean we’re stuck in the past. We stay abreast of changes in technology so that we can keep you up-to-date as well. We take pride in offering you tomorrow’s technology with classic service!
