Give us the Why, Way, What
Why: We believe technology should be easier to use and make your life better (more productive, happier, connected, etc.). Technology is involved in every part of our lives and is ever changing. Our clients have more important things to do than keep up with this never ending challenge of knowing the latest tech tool and how to make the most of it.
Way: Our Nerds are special...they are outgoing, empathetic, loving people with a desire to serve! We are very selective in hiring them and put them through a thorough on-boarding process. We pride ourselves on knowing our clients and providing outstanding customer service. We invest time on the frontend to know the client, their technology, their likes and dislikes. We leverage many tools to leverage our Nerd-Collective to address client's needs and wants before they ever become stressful issues.
What: We provide technology consulting/concierge services for a small monthly fee. We have both residential and small business clients. Members get a number of requests for their monthly membership fee.

I have an appointment in far West Knoxville that I won't be out of until about 2:00. I don't think I can get to Cazzy's and back to my 3:00 in Karns in time. :o( I'm free this evening and most of tomorrow, though.
