My company has been in business for 18 years and until we found The Core IT has always been a struggle. We have been through many different IT vendors and none come close to The Core. Andy and the Guys have been amazing. Responsive, helpful, and great value.

I can't say enough great things about Jason and the team at The Core. I work at a small non-profit office and we've used The Core Group as our go-to IT Team, from setting up our Network, WiFi to troubleshooting. They are always responsive, always courteous and professional, always offer the best solutions or repairs and generally go above and beyond. I would recommend this team to anyone!

Without question, The Core Technology Group is the best company and consultant we've worked with in 25 years. Thorough, professional and courteous. With down to earth pro's who know how to get the job done and who can actually talk like adults - amazing! No task was too big and no detail was too small. They arrived on time and made sure our work continued uninterrupted. Not only was our new system set up in record time, we've also noticed a significant improvement to our network speed compared to where it was before they were here. The Core Technology Group is our new "GO-TO" resource for Installation/Set-up/Upgrades, Purchase Recommendations, Ongoing IT Support & Troubleshooting.

The Core has helped to guide us in the right direction in many different ways from computer to internet. We have tried several other companies, however The Core has been very honest and up front with us in all of the areas that we needed advise and help on. The Core got us through all of the hiccups of moving and starting a new business. We will not use any other company other than The Core for all of our communication and IT support.

I've worked with the Core Technology Group several times now. They worked around my clinic schedule so my network wouldn't go down during business hours. That flexibility combined with their knowledge of Mac and my specific electronic medical record made them a clear choice. I couldn't be happier with The Core and I will be using them in the future.

Top Notch Support!

Boerne, TX

When our small business decided to make the transition from Mac to PC, we had no idea what we were getting into. After fumbling around in the dark with setup and integration of existing software, we called J2 Consulting for much needed help. Jonathan was able to not only get us up and running, but he helped to streamline a lot of our outdated practices. While we now run smoothly 99% of the time, occasionally we hit a snag and require support. Jonathan is always there to not only unravel the tangle we get ourselves into, but also to educate us on the ways to better our user habits and avoid future issues. I don't know where we would be without such fantastic tech support. He truly goes above and beyond!

Every small business NEEDS The Core Technology Group

29 May 2013

Written by

From

Dallas, Texas

We had no idea that we needed The Core Technology Group until our PC's had to be replaced when they cratered. We took the opportunity to purchase Mac Pro computers for those that cratered and kept the PC's that were still working. Our Apple business specialist recommended The Core Group because our dental office is now running both Mac's and PC's and we needed IT support. The Core Group came in for the initial consultation, diagnosed some of our long standing issues, and fixed them on the spot! We had a need to set-up VPN to access our server while we are away from the office. The Core Group ordered the new router, worked with our practice management software vendor, and implemented the entire solution in less than 4 days! They also worked during the evening hours connecting via remote connection to ensure every aspect of the implementation worked. The Core Group makes everything convenient for our office - from the consultation, to the bid, to the implementation of the solution, and even to the payment of the solution - they understand that we are not IT folks and they keep it simple so we can understand and utilize our technology to the fullest. The Core Group makes us feel like we are their only client - we may not need IT support everyday, but it is such a comfort to know they are only a phone call away! When it comes to technology, our office motto is "we just want it to work" - the Core Group ensures that everything works so we can focus on providing the best dental services to our patients. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE CORE TECHNOLOGY GROUP!!!!!!

Jonathan has helped me for over a year with both my home and small business Mac products. This past week I walked into my office to find the dreaded black screen on my iMac. Jonathan responded immediately to my urgent email and was able to confirm very quickly that yes, my hard drive had crashed. He explained the entire disc installation /restoration process. And thanks to his excellent previous advice, I didn't lose a bit of data as I had both a Time Machine and a Backblaze backup. He made what could have been a disastrous situation absolutely seamless. I was back up and running in no time.

Jonathan and Glenn converted our PC household to Mac in a seamless, convenient, and professional way. They swooped in, took away the old, and brought back the new ready to use. I loved being able to hand them our gadgets, let them do whatever it is they do with them, and return the next day with everything ready to go. They speak English (as opposed to tech-speak!) and were patient as we asked questions and got trained. I have recommended them repeatedly to friends and colleagues and everyone has had a positive experience.

Jonathan and his team have helped with an extensive rework of our IT systems this year. I have found their recommendations and advice invaluable to our growing company. They have extended the life of older systems with hardware and software, set up new laptops, iMacs and minis and also transitioned us to a new server. They have helped configure offsite and onsite backups, remote management, recommended several cloud-based solutions and software tools, and even set up our conference room apple tv. I have 100% confidence in their ability to take care of anything IT-related that my team needs moving forward. I highly recommend them.

Every email, phone call and text are answered right away (even late at night), every problem that can be solved is solved, and every cool new feature or upgrade is explained.
