By Asheville Computer Company / BusinessDesktopRecent Work / / 0 Comments

This customer wanted the latest and greatest video card for high resolution gaming on a huge monitor so they needed to upgrade their video card. They had a Nvidia 780TI, which was top of the line just a few years ago, but wanted something newer and faster for the latest games and their new, large monitor.

They chose the Nvidia 1080TI graphics card as the current champion in high resolution gaming. We replaced the existing card and loaded the updated drivers and patches to ensure that it was operating at peak performance in their custom build gaming PC.

After a few further adjustments to tweak the new gaming monitor to work with their new graphics card they were ready to go.

If you want to upgrade your gaming PC but aren’t sure where to start or what you might need then please give us a call. We can make it as painless as possible to get you back in action!

2016 Angies List Super Service Award
By Asheville Computer Company / AwardsBusinessNews / / 0 Comments

The Asheville Computer Company has won the Angie’s List Super Service Award for 2016 making it the 4th year in a row for this prestigious award. We previously won this award for 2015, 2014 and 2013.

Below is the press release from Angie’s List.

The Asheville Computer Company Earns Esteemed 2016 Angie’s List Super Service Award

Award reflects company’s consistently high level of customer service

 The Asheville Computer Company has earned the home service industry’s coveted Angie’s List Super Service Award, reflecting an exemplary year of customer service to members of the local services marketplace and consumer review site in 2016.

This achievement is particularly significant as Angie’s List experienced unprecedented member growth in 2016. More than 1.6 million consumers, many of whom were eager to quickly hire highly qualified service pros, joined Angie’s List after the company added a new, free membership tier.

“Companies that can meet higher demands without missing a beat in their exemplary performance standards truly do stand apart from their peers,” said Angie’s List Founder Angie Hicks. “Only a fraction of the Computer Repair companies in Asheville were able to do it.”

Angie’s List Super Service Award 2016 winners have met strict eligibility requirements, which include an “A” rating in overall grade, recent grade, and review period grade. The SSA winners must also be in good standing with Angie’s List, pass a background check and abide by Angie’s List operational guidelines.

Service company ratings are updated daily on Angie’s List as new, verified consumer reviews are submitted. Companies are graded on an A through F scale in areas ranging from price to professionalism to punctuality.

For more than 21 years, Angie’s List restricted access to its verified reviews to consumers who paid membership fees. When the company removed that barrier, some companies worried that the new, non-paying members would not be as engaged as members of the past. Experience has shown, however, that these newly added members are just as engaged – across all age groups – as prior members. Also, because the company continues to adhere to its review verification process, there has been no degradation of review quality.

“The biggest change at Angie’s List is that we are connecting even more consumers to high quality service professionals,” Hicks said. “And that’s good for everyone.”

###

Angie’s List helps facilitate happy transactions between more than 4.5 million consumers nationwide and its collection of highly rated service providers in more than 720 categories of service, ranging from home improvement to health care. Built on a foundation of more than 10 million verified reviews of local service, Angie’s List connects consumers directly to its online marketplace of services from member-reviewed providers, and offers unique tools and support designed to improve the local service experience for both consumers and service professionals.

Verizon Cradlepoint Setup
By Asheville Computer Company / BusinessRecent Work / / 0 Comments

This business customer has a need for high speed internet but is unable to get traditional cable or DSL service to their location. This leaves them with cellular internet as the only option.

They need a router, along with a backup router, to send the signal to all their wireless devices and several wired computers. We setup two new Verizon access points and matching Cradlepoint routers to handle all the traffic for the whole network.

While this customer is using the Cradlepoint / Verizon setup as their sole internet connection this can also be used as a fail safe for traditional cable, fiber or DSL connection. If your service is interrupted from your main ISP you can switch over to the cellular router until your normal service is restored. This can save valuable time and money and keep your company from going down for extended periods of time due to outside circumstances.

If being online and running is crucial to your company please give us a call.
