Every day we see customers who are shocked that their computer has a virus. They thought they had security software and they thought it was doing it's job.

But here's the thing....You get what you pay for...and YOU play a massive part in your computer's secuirty. You have to check before you click anything, you have to choose the right security, AND you have to know when it's time to renew your services. 

We recommend Norton Internet Security 2014 and it's avialable instore at PC Pitstop Port Macquarie for $85 installed.

If your computer is in for service and we notice your Norton is out of date we will update it at the same time for a reduced fee of $65.

Keep your PC and your Stuff safe with industry-leading protection.
Emailing, sharing files, visiting social networks, shopping online, or just browsing websites. Whatever you like to do on your PC, we help keep it—and the Stuff on it—safe from viruses, online threats, and problems that could slow down your computer.

Gets rid of viruses and spyware, so you can read emails and download and share files without getting or passing on threats, plus it helps prevent online identity theft and blocks websites that could steal your credit card numbers or other information. So you can surf, shop, and bank online worry-free.

BX NIS Y14 r r EN 342
Verdict

Norton's internet security suite offers excellent malware detection and consistently performs on pace with the best available security software.

Avoid the horror story happening to you. Don't get caught without. It could cost you more than you know.

Benefits of Onsite Service

Onsite computer support is a premium service that gives you access to PC Pitstop Trained Technicians in your home or workplace. Many businesses only discover the real value of onsite computer support after they have experienced a major IT breakdown or disaster. However, more often than not, these IT issues can be prevented or at least minimised through regular servicing, regular maintenance and the right infrastructure and planning in place.

Convenience: In some situations it can be inconvenient or unpractical to disconnect all the cables of your computer and bring it in store for repair. With onsite computer support, a professional can visit you at home or at your workplace, usually within 24hrs of your request.

Better Knowledge of your Systems: Onsite support, especially at business visits, gives PC Pitstop Trained Technicians better access to your entire system – how it is set up, how it works, its inefficiencies and also how the users (the workers) interact with the system. This enables a more complete assessment of the businesses needs and allows for smoother integration, upgrades, and training or maintenance schedules.

Onsite Service is best for the following situations:

  • Installation of a new modem or setting up a wireless router
  • Setting up a home/business network, sharing printers and sharing files
  • Troubleshooting faults that are environment related
  • New computer setup - Help setting everything up, just the way you like it
  • One on one Lessons - at your computer, in your own time
  • Setting up backup systems
  • Fault finding specific internet problems
  • Scheduled maintenance on business servers and workstations

*Pickup and Drop off - For a fee, a trained technician will pickup your machine - take it to the workshop, repair, then deliver it back to you and set it up again.

Today we thought we'd share a newsletter from our favourite team building guru - Sam Parker from GiveMore.

We've been signed up to his posts for over a year now and have implemented and purchased some of his useful, innovative and fun policies. Subtle reminders around PC Pitstop HQ that life is good.

My mousemat is my fave :)

Thanks for watching our video. If you've not seen all of them and need something to kick off or support an upcoming meeting or development effort, maybe one or two of the videos below (based on my books) would be helpful tools.

For each, we also created different meeting packages (with detailed Leader's Guides that can help you easily deliver & discuss the material), posters, wristbands, and other fun things that can help you keep the messages going with everyone.

 

Inspire extra effort and attention.
(watch the 3.5 minute 212 video)

Video

 

Encourage high trust and accountability.
(watch the 3-minute Love Your People video)

Video

 

Encourage better attitudes and service.
(watch the 3-minute Smile & Move video)

Video

 

Inspire commitment, focus, and resilience.
(watch the 4.5-minute Cross The Line video)

Video

 

All of them work well on their own or can easily be used to support any meeting, project, or initiative you may already have going.

To introduce a message and discuss it as a team, our Video Discussion Packages, PowerPoint® presentation packages or go even deeper by combining them both. Each includes an in-depth Leader's Guide that makes it simple and easy for you to have a great meeting or event (however formal or informal you'd like).


Everything is at www.GiveMore.com.

Please call or email if you need anything at all.

[Kerrie Eggins]| [Owner] | [Inland Hunting Properties]

Tell us about your business: We are a business which has been around since 1992. We organise hunting tours in Australia.

All shooters must have their relevant state shooters licenses and we also accept bow hunters and some properties are available to doggers.

Some properties make sure all who enter their property are members of a hunting club also.

Feral animals are a massive problem to farmers livestock and crops. Our hunters help to keep these numbers down.

What's been your most outstanding achievement? Our hunters have actually come across poachers who enter the properties illegally and the owners have been able to prosecute them.

How do you WOW your clients? We have clients in the owner of the property and also the hunters themselves. By giving honest advise to the hunters on relevant game activity. We also look after our regular hunters and notify them when we have a new property become available for the first time. They will be the first people we send there. Our property owners are very happy to have responsible hunters through our company helping them with their feral problems.

What are your top 3 technology tips? Keep all data with a good back-up system. Have a specialised IT team who you trust. After all, they are the ones we need if something goes wrong and it can affect business stoppages. Make sure anti-virus is up to date.

What can't you live without? Phone and Emails!

What value and benefit have you or your business gained by being a client of PC Pitstop? Ben and the team have protected our business computer systems for many years. They offer second to none in promptness and attitude to our problems. They
are always diligent in the service they provide and will follow up with feedback on the performance of their employees.
