As their name implies, the technicians at Data Doctors see computers as patients, and look to cure CPU maladies rather than simply treating symptoms. In the span of a short wait, the team diagnoses the problem at hand and determines the best course of action, should it be repairs, upgrades, or complete replacements. The winner of a Spirit of Enterprise Award by the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University and fluent in both Windows and Mac systems, the computer sleuths root out viruses and spyware, optimize drives with defragmentation and registry cleaning, and even delve into cases to drive out fan-choking dust and infestations of robotic ants. Once services are complete, they chat with each customer to explain how best to prevent a return visit.
The team's expertise also extends to the sale and setting up of new computers, including the safe transfer of data from old hard drives to new ones. To keep businesses running smoothly, Data Doctors can set up new networks, lend supplemental IT help, and recover data lost to the void.
