Awesome IT consultant

San Francisco, CA

I have worked with many IT consultants through the years. Steve is far and away the best of all. While technically he charges for his services on the high side of the spectrum, he is actually less expensive because of his incredible efficiency. He comes in, sees the problem, starts clacking away on his computer and, like magic, the problem is located and solved. He literally takes half the time of every other person I have worked with. As long as Steve is available, I will not work with any other IT consultant. A miracle worker!

Steve's team was recommended to us after the Computer Repair shop in Hayward (also great!) mentioned them as an onsite option with a Mac focus. The team has upgraded all of our systems, allowed us to be more secure in our file sharing and network connections and is incredibly responsive to calls, emails and even the occasional text for help! I would highly recommend Favarger Consulting to anyone in the East Bay needing a Mac expert!

Steve and Darren have been providing services to our firm for many years. Service has always been excellent, the prices fair. They have been prompt, dependable, and knowledgeable. Both of them have great personalities, to boot. They've been able to handle jobs big and small, and have been kind to our somewhat technically-challenged firm (myself included). They manage our servers, and have helped us through several physical moves. We highly recommend Favarger Consulting.

Steve has been our IT Specialist for the last couple of years. He and his staff are always professional, extremely competent, fun to work with and very responsive. We feel so fortunate to have this working relationship, especially at the rate IT is evolving and changing. As a small business owner, we can focus on our business and be confident that Favarger Consulting is handling our IT issues.

Steve successfully navigated us through 3 major transitions over the course of 14 months. The first was migrating to him as our new IT Support Vendor after having been with our old service for many years. His professionalism and transparency with the process made for a very smooth and drama free hand-off. The second was taking us from a PC to an Apple Platform in anticipation of our move to a brand new facility. Despite some very significant issues with our EMR vendor and their ability to actually support an iOS environment, Steve worked well into the late hours with me to make sure we had what we needed to continue seeing patients and documenting in our record on our new devices. The third was actually moving all of our IT equipment and getting us set up in the new space as part of a major construction project. He worked extremely well with our construction team and other vendors to ensure we had what we needed and we would be fully operational day 1. His support, responsiveness, perspective, experience dealing with smaller medical practices and outstanding ability to project manage these types of situations was outstanding. I would not hesitate to recommend him and his associate Darren to my colleagues and friends. His work is superlative and I greatly enjoy working with him.

Steve really knows his stuff. He updated + migrated our server and reimaged our school lab. I was worried about making the switch in the middle of the school year but Steve kept the system running at all times and was great about working around the school day. From experience, I know a lot can go wrong during such a transition. I took many precautions and I'm happy to report they were all unnecessary. Lastly, Steve was very patient and understanding about the nutty bureaucracy that is public school billing.

Steve has been our "IT Guy" for over two years. He can quickly fix any networking related problem - and we have had many. Recently he set up our three physical locations with what he calls "site-to-site VPN's" It works great and allows us now to work from any of our remote locations and still access our server in our main office. He can perform improved remote monitoring and fix problems remotely as well. We also can print from any physical location to any printer in any of the three locations - and we do not have to do anything except turn on our computer. We use MacPractice Medical Software to run our Vein Clinics. Steve has extensive knowledge and experience in this software and understands how to keep all of our Mac computers and networking gear humming. He gets back to us promptly - especially when we are in dire need - this is greatly appreciated.

Steve has been my IT expert for the past several years after I purchased a Mac-based EMR (MacPractice) for my office. He has been very professional, easy to work with, responsive, and above all, extremely knowledgeable. I recently asked him to upgrade my software to the most recent version, and we ran into some problems. He not only persevered and eventually made it work, but he was also very understanding and willing to work with me to ease some of the more challenging aspects of lost time during the process. I have always found him very accommodating and willing to guide me through any issue that can be handled remotely. He has become a valued friend and associate. I would highly recommend his services.

Steve has been consulting our company for the last several years. We run an Apple product with a Microsoft product using a program called Parallels. Steve was instrumental in the successful implementation of this product. Other than my iPad the Apple world was completely new to me, Steve has always been very patient with me and my lack of Apple knowhow. After all this time I feel as if he is my friend as well because he has always been kind and helpful. As smart as he is, he has never talked down to me, he has always taken the time to fully explain what he is doing and why.

We recently bought a smart TV and found that our network was not sufficient for streaming. We bought a Mac Mini and new routers. We decided to hire a certified Apple consultant for the install. We called Steve after reading his testimonials on Apple's website. We were very impressed with his technical skills and seriousness of purpose. There was not one aspect of the install that he was unfamiliar with and he was easy to talk to. He always responded timely by phone or text.

We have used Favarger Consulting for the last several years for IT consulting for our MacPractice small medical practice software. He is knowledgeable, responsive, and practical. However, I never realized how competent he was until this summer when all our computers were stolen during an office break in. Despite our server being stolen, Steve Favarger was able to get our Malpractice data from back up within 12 hours. Our clinic was up and running within 24 hours. He provided specific tracking data for our local police department. He guided us in purchasing replacement equipment quickly and economically. Lastly, our HIPAA compliance attorney stated we were the best prepared small medical office for safeguarding patient privacy and retrieving our patient data. We highly recommend Steve for medical office IT services.

While I have been able to manage 5 computers in our office for the last several years, it became clear that I was spending too much time getting new machines set up, backed up, etc. I was ignoring the part of the business that I do well (and makes money) by doing jobs that others can do for me. I was also worried that we didn't have a fail proof backup plan. Long story short, we found Steve through the Apple store in Emeryville, and he came in and took the reins. He set me up with a VPN so I can now work from home, cataloged all of the gadgets on our local network, and set us up with a cloud Exchange account for mail, calendars, and contacts. Amazing - I had no idea that POP mail was adding that much stress to my life. I highly recommend having Steve set up Exchange if you have multiple devices for email! Thanks to Steve, I now feel like our office is covered, and we can grow without worrying about 'how'.

I was having MAJOR email issues thanks to Go Daddy!! Duplicate messages, messages move to the wrong folders, wrong received dates showing up, etc. After moving hosting providers I attempted to use Mac Mail to clean up the mess, but it didn't work. Steve was great in explaining to me (in terms I could understand) that MacMail isn't the best program to use to clean up my account. After just one call with him I was able to download a different mail program and get the mess cleaned up. I was also having issues storage, my screen flashing pink when booting up amongst other things. Steve was always responsive to my incessant questions and even made himself available while traveling. Steve is very knowledgeable and really tries to understand how to best help you without racking up any unnecessary costs. I highly recommend Steve if you want something expertly fixed the first time around!

Steve was outstanding. He assisted from the early planning stages of our new medical office through the hardware and software installation. He was always prompt and helpful when I contacted him with questions, which was quite often! The install went great. Follow up has been equally great. I would not hesitate to recommend him to other medical practices.

Excellent Service for Home Network

Yeah!!! Steve succeeded in getting our home network wireless speeds up to what we pay for from Comcast and fast enough to stream movies etc. from the laptop to our TIVO. We had been struggling with this problem on our own for many months and Steve came in analyzed the problem (plaster walls), assisted us to purchase the necessary hardware to send the signal from the office router to the downstairs where we need it and set it all up. He was responsive and pleasant to work with. We highly recommend him and will use his services again if the need arises.

Steve is very focused on solving problems and fixing them without any unnecessary talk or distraction. He recommended an associate to implement the LAN for all 9 of our Macs plus a VoIP system and a Mac Mini server. All of this was done with minimal interruption of the medical practice. I have over 30 years of engineering research and as a medical doctor and these folks are the best I have seen.

Steve Farager was awesomely helpful and easy to work with. We needed help updating our home computers and wireless setup. Probably small beans compared to his usual client list. But I never felt unimportant. He was responsive, flexed around our crazy schedule, was knowledgeable and skilled, and even great with our kids. I felt confident in his expertise and honesty, and felt that he fees were very reasonable. I would absolutely call him again the next time we have need.

Mr Favarger, and the members of his business share a common goal. That is to do things right, in an an expeditious way, so that their customers can do what they do best, which is usually not spending their time to fight the technology that they use to run their business. The other thing that stands out about Steve and his team is that they really care about what they do, and do it with the utmost integrity.

Steve managed to resolve teething problems after our hardware and software were installed remotely - without the need for me to login to any web conferencing center. I dropped him an email, he picked up the phone took control of the machines in front of my eyes and solved the problem - all from the original email - now thats what customer experience should all be about!

This consultant has been an invaluable resource ever since I decided to invest in an Apple based EMR for my medical office in 2010. He set up our computer systems as well as the software to allow us to start using the program right away. Since then, he has served as our "IT guy" by solving all of our hardware as well as software needs. Through it all, he has been patient and quick to respond to our questions and concerns. By setting up remote monitoring of my server, he has alerted me to potential problems and helped us avoid costly downtimes. He is also very easy to work with on a personal level. I would gladly and highly recommend him to anyone who needs help with their MACs.

Steve is extremely knowledgeable and professional. I greatly appreciated how he explained my networking and system issues in terms I could understand without me having to read an IT Manual afterward. He was prompt and listened well. He was like a Mac Merlin. He appeared quickly, fixed the problem, gave me some new bits of information to go on my way, then he disappeared, voila! Call him and you will understand exactly what I mean. And really, wouldn't you want a Merlin you could call on for your computer issues? A++
