Computers are a vital part of everyday business operations; so when problems arise, things can come to a screeching halt. While having an IT person on staff is one way to ensure business runs smoothly, it isn’t always an option for small businesses. That means you’re either depending on a third party service to address the issue, or you may have to play the Help Desk role.
Soluto is a new way to help reduce time spent maintaining and fixing Windows computers. Armed with quick fix do-it-yourself tools, or slick remote expert assistance Soluto offers a valuable PC maintenance suite cost-free for up to 5 computers.
