Welcome To TechSolus

What's Techsolus?

A bloke in Bolton, a computer and 20 years of experience in the IT industry.

What do I offer?

Online Databases
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 up their customer records or perhaps recent quotes. An engineering company could allow access to several users via touchscreen computers to view stock or upcoming jobs.
IT Support
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.
