Absolutely! In fact, for your big purchases we prefer to play an advisory/consultative role. We will specify the precise computer, file server and network configurations that will work best for you. Then we will help you make the purchase from one of the major suppliers such as Dell or Hewlett Packard. That way you can take advantage of the warranties and service contracts that the major companies offer. We don’t get a commission from these suppliers, so we have no vested interest in pushing onto you something you might not need. Furthermore, we can usually get a discount for you that more than covers our consultation fee. Of course, we can also sell hard-to-obtain accessories.
