We used to have an in-house IT guy who would manage the suite of macs for our 45 person company. When an issue cropped up, it would require us leaving our computer with him overnight. KGinger has been such a great experience. The software runs checks on the computers and lets Kevin and his team know about any issues that crop up. Kevin is super responsive and knows that as consultants, we lose valuable billable time when our computers are down. His standard of customer service and knowledge of the mac environment are top notch.

We can't say enough good things about kGinger Consulting. They were extremely knowledgable and helpful. Easy to work with and developed strategies that met our needs and our budget. They set up a new server, re-networked the whole office, set up our cloud back-up and redid our campus wifi. They really listened to what our needs were. They recommended software and hardware and never tried to sell us something we didn't need. Took the time to explain their recommendations and implementation. We've had zero issues since the revamp and any questions or concerns we have had have been addressed in a timely and courteous manner. We wouldn't think of using anyone else.

Kevin is very responsive and always has a solution to our office support needs. He not only supports our corporate HQ office but also several of our remote employees across the country on both computer and mobile device equipment. He takes care of all of our hardware, software, and server needs, and has also provided software solutions for some specific needs we have had outside of normal support. I would highly recommend Kevin to any company or individual looking for a top-notch Apple support consultant.

KGinger is Apple Expert, yet practical and resourceful. A down-to-earth kind of guy who is not a vapid "Apple Yes Man"

Kevin is a resourceful and practical problem solver. He has the knowledge to get the job done responsibly and timely, and does a good job keeping up with the "latest and greatest" apple technology, yet knows not to jump at updates until they have been time tested and proven. We feel like this approach has saved us much money and time over the years that we have been working with him. Within the last year, he has upgraded our small office to a server, and has set us up with network accounts which have streamlined our work flow and given us the peace of mind that our data is safely stored in one location and is backed up using both cloud and local solutions. We would recommend Kevin to small businesses or individuals needing honest and practical solutions to keep their apple technology humming along.

Kevin from kGinger Consulting helped our office through a conversion from PC to Mac and the implementation of an electronic medical records application. It went better than expected. We had some unique issues that he was able to solve in a timely manner that ultimately helped save the company money. We also implemented a software program that is integral to our business operations, MacPractice. This is a Mac based EMR application that is used in every facet of our business and also the reason for the switch to Apple computers. Kevin helped us with the integration and network setup of all our devices and computers. We were up an running faster than projected and the on going maintenance is less than expected. Every set-up has its hiccups, Kevin's response to those challenges exceeded our expectations. I would recommend his service to anyone.

I contacted Kevin on the basis of the many recommendations left by his satisfied clients. He returned my calls quickly, listened carefully and was quick not only to offer suggestions, but also to incorporate them into our existing dynamic (budget, timeframe, needs, reality check). He followed through on promises, returned calls/emails on a timely basis, and throughout every task, he displayed a genuine enthusiasm not only for what he was doing, but also for the quality of his work AND the Apple products he represented. I know there were many situations where he came through for us in spite of geographical/time zone challenges, and allowed us to stay on budget and schedule. I am happy to recommend Kevin, without reservation.

Fixed my VMWare printer issues!

Kevin was great. He showed up on time and was able to quickly fix the problem I was having, which was getting my UPS thermal printer connected to VMware on my Mac. He was professional, friendly, didn't make me feel dumb about not knowing computer stuff, and got the job done! I had tried (very unsuccessfully) to get things working myself, but I wish I had just called him in the first place -- would have saved me lots of time. I would recommend him, especially for problems involving VMware.

Kevin has provided excellent service for my company for over 10 years through crashes, change-overs and new builds. I have yet to see him come across a problem he hasn't been able to solve - and quickly at that. I've given his name to more than 15 other companies, many of whom have called him in and also had excellent reports on his work. And his rates are fair. What more could you ask? I just hope he never retires!

We hired Kevin to re-install and configure a new OS X Server, administer a directory server and VPN as well as to help integrate Windows users into our all Mac office environment. His work was quick, efficient and meticulous. We will be continuing to use Kevin for our on going contract IT work. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Kevin for any OS X related consultation, we were extremely satisfied with his work.

Kevin was referred to us by our local Apple store and the relationship has worked out great for us. We are a small business that uses Macs and a few PC's as well. Kevin has been able to help us with our networking issues as well as setting up new Mac's and working out the kinks in our point of sale system. Kevin is highly responsive to both emails and phone calls and works to resolve our problems quickly and professionally. I would highly recommend Kevin Ginger.

We are a small nonprofit organization that has relied on kGinger Consulting for the past few years for system upgrades and maintenance, troubleshooting and support, and staff training. Kevin helped us transition from a PC-based system to Macs a few years ago, and just recently helped us upgrade to a new server, with features like remote troubleshooting support to allow him to respond even more quickly when we do have problems or questions. We have always been very satisfied with his work, and also appreciate his efforts to find simple, cost-effective solutions that work for us. While he is very quick to respond when issues come up, and deals with them effectively, he also provides valuable advice and information that have helped us plan for the future. We would not hesitate to recommend him to other businesses or organizations looking for friendly, efficient and reliable support!

kGinger consulting is responsible for all aspects of Mac support and strategy for four of our clients. The companies served by kGinger are in the 20-50 person size range. These fast-growing companies have complex technical requirements and rapidly changing needs. kGinger provides the best possible IT consultancy - patience, fairness, intelligence and communication are hallmarks of the service. We've tried several other consultants and have replaced them all with kGinger. I hope to have a long and fun relationship with kGinger Consulting.

I found Kevin at KGinger Consulting several years ago, and have been using his services ever since. I am a small business owner with desktop and laptop computers, along with an iPhone (soon an iPad), and Kevin has serviced them all, responding to my unique needs as recording studio owner and entrepreneur. I'm not a tech expert by a long shot, but I rely on it for my work, and Kevin knows that even a small "glitch" has very real impact on my bottom line. He is quick to respond to issues, at times, using remote technology, instantaneously. His work is thorough and effective; he takes time to provide tutorials when needed for upgrades and new technology introduced to my system; and he's both orderly and creative in approach. To top it all off, he's more than "just a tech guy," he's a nice fellow, with a good humor and great outlook. Can't recommend him enough!

Got everything up and running quickly after system corruption.

Portland, OR

I called kGinger (Kevin) after our new Apple system was corrupted and inoperable. An initial setup had been done incorrectly, and we were loosing business data (QuickBooks, contacts, emails, etc ... including the information in our data backup). My business had to stop using the entire Apple computer system (server, iMac design station, PowerBooks, iPhone). It was HORRIBLE for the business. Kevin quickly showed up and got the whole system operating smoothly (although data had been permanently lost). He makes himself readily available for ongoing maintenance, and he's a great instructor on system operation and preventative maintenance. I would recommend him.

Kevin has been an amazing ally for my company. He has been tireless and relentless as he has been troubleshooting problems that we have had because of a server that was incorrectly set-up initially (not his work, another person involved). We have also been dealing with the complexity of calendars and contacts across multiple devices - MacBooks, iPhones, iPads, and Servers - some remote and some internal - and has constantly risen to the occasion and provided us with excellent service. I think that Kevin would be an excellent addition to anyone's Apple IT Team!
