our philosophy

PeopleFirst was founded on the notion that despite today's advanced technology, most people still experience too many "pain points" in the day to day use of our devices. From security concerns to slow computers, we handle a wide variety of issues using a human-based approach that leaves our clients happy.

We communicate in plain English and work efficiently to respect your time. We're that bridge between unintuitive technology and humans trying to get work done. We offer long term fixes instead of band-aids.

The security of your organization is one of our prime areas of focus. The fact that over 90% of cyber attacks start with a phishing email tells that social engineering vulnerabilities are poorly addressed. We teach people-oriented security principles in addition to appropriate hardware and software defenses.

While specializing in Macs, we offer a broad range of PC services as well. We provide tune-ups, SSD speed upgrades to add years to an older machine's life, photo support, data recovery, wireless / networking, cloud / hosting solutions, backup systems, house calls, and more. Our web design portfolio is here.

PeopleFirst is about helping our clients make the right choices to achieve their goals.
