What is “Proactive Support”?
Proactive means being ready for what's coming. It means you can respond quickly and decisively to advserse situations with a clear and concise plan-of-action.
You don't panic, you take constructive action.
Wizard Consulting Group, Inc. has partnered with Watchman Monitoring to provide you with hourly monitoring of your Macintosh computers (desktop and laptops). You can see if a hard-drive is having problems, your Time Machine backups are not happening, a computer is infected with some type of malware, or is having trouble connecting to your local network or to the Internet (to name a few of the issues that are monitored).
When problems happen, we are emailed and can alert you of the problem.
We can work as a team and take action to resolve the problem before it gets out of hand.
