You can be sure we are taking the coronavirus very seriously at SpeedGeek, and can help you set up any computer, tablet or even phone to access your devices from home. You could use the the same programs and files that you have at work and we can even assist you over the phone without having to make a personal visit. We can help you install and use various video conferencing programs such as ZOOM, Skype,Google Hangouts, Discord, FaceTime and others that allow you to see and talk to anyone from anywhere as well as share your desktop or a specific program (like Powerpoint) with another person or even a group of people. If you do have a computer issue that requires an on-site appointment, our agents are taking extra precautions before and after all visits. We have provided hand sanitizer and alcohol cleaning wipes to all of our agents—and nobody at SpeedGeek is allowed to work if they are feeling even slightly ill. All of our agents are thoroughly washing their hands with soap upon arrival and before they touch any of your equipment. For those of you who are looking for some extra peace of mind when it comes to disinfecting hand-held objects, this portable UV sanitizer is a great solution for disinfecting your phone, glasses, keys, or any other object liable to spread the germs. If you’re especially worried about your phone and do not want to use a UV sanitizer, here’s a helpful video from PC Magazine about how and when to clean your phone. We are taking every precaution in order to safeguard our health and yours. If you have any questions about the best way to stay safe with technology,please do not hesitate to call us or e-mail us.
If you're working from home, we recommend purchasing a higher quality web-cam so you are seen clearly and professionally. Headsets are an important tool as well, they make sure you are heard clearly and loudly without any background noise and give you privacy wherever you are. They also prevent your video partners from hearing an echo of their own voice that can be very distracting.
