Windows LogoIn just two short months support for Windows XP comes to a final conclusion on April 8th, 2014.  Windows XP will stand as Microsoft’s longest running operating system at *12.5 years and most commercially successful. It is estimated that just under a quarter of all computers in the United States still operate Windows XP. According to figures from Gartner at the end of 2013 the global install base of XP was approximately 1.6 billion units and installed on approximately half a billion computers. Businesses that choose to remain on Windows XP may be putting themselves at more risk than they realize. The benefits are obvious in that companies save on capital expenditures, however, the potential risks may result in more costs.

30 Years of Rave Reviews

We are so pleased with the installation of our Shoretel system. The phones work great and James was able to customize the system to suit our somewhat unusual need of combine live person answering and automation. Both the phones and the software are user friendly and required little training. James…

I’ve sent more than one shining Michael endorsement. The whole company kicks ass.

I cannot thank you enough for your help this evening. You have proven that your services are much more valuable than we ever expected - when you guys told me your hourly rate, I thought "no way can we afford that"! lol .... We are small and we do all we can to keep costs down, as I'm sure you…

Nims and Associates are the best support company I have ever worked with. They get back to my every problem or question in record time. They have been able to help or fix every problem I have come up with. Bill and or Bob are very knowledgeable with all my MASS 200 problems. I would and have…

We are very happy to have your company in place. Joel and Tony have been excellent. The Senior Management Team feels as though a great weight has been lifted from their shoulders and we are appreciative that our systems and software are in the hands of experts.

We are impressed with response times and the general aptitude of your support group. This stands in stark contrast to some of the experiences with other IT resources we’ve patronized in the past.

Our Yardi conversion was challenging. Hiring Nims and in turn working with Marco was the smartest thing we did to assist in this transition. His contribution was priceless. My staff and Board both agree it would have been a nightmare without Nims (Marco).

I was going to say it was the smartest…

Since we switched hosts to Network Solutions, we've had nothing but continuous problems with email and sessions timing out preventing us from opening our online store. Joel went out of his way to solve our problem. This means the world to us. Joel listened and accommodated our needs first before…

At a time when it may seem like good customer service is at all time low and we hear so many negatives about many companies and their employees, it’s a pleasure to be able to send along our positive comments regarding Nims & Associates … and more specifically about Chris. Chris has worked our…
