Director of Marketing
Frank is the head of our marketing and sales department. He began working with computers in 1984 at a computer store in Houston, Texas, and in particular has enjoyed helping others take advantage of hardware and software to get work done more easily. Clearing up the definitions of technical terms has kept his head above water as technology has become more and more complex.
Frank believes computers should help accomplish work, never add work, while reducing the time needed to accomplish goals. He has the philosophy that the correct tools make money and that getting by with poor tools is expensive.
Suzanne is our Support Manager and is in charge of installation, software and hardware support, and training. She works with new customers to streamline the initial installation and implementation of the SMARTSystem software and hardware. She then makes sure that managers and staff are well trained in its use and functions to ensure the transition period to the SMARTSystem is as smooth and simple as possible. Suzanne has dual degrees in Biology (plants and flowers) and Information Technology/Computer Networking Systems, which allow her to troubleshoot whatever challenges you and your staff run into. She can quickly work out the exact solution so that your company is up and running, with as close to zero downtime as possible.
