Welcome To TechSolus
A bloke in Bolton, a computer and 20 years of experience in the IT industry.
What do I offer?
My primary focus is online databases. Say what? Simple websites for small businesses with a database
to make them useful. Maybe a plumber can log in to their database via a mobile phone, tablet or PC and pull

From data cabling to getting your emails working, from setting up a new PC to sharing files from Microsoft
Sharepoint, I can help. I've been working in IT Support for years, supporting home users and SMEs.
