GS-maze-businessman-300wAs a buyer, you walk into any retail store, pick up the item you want to purchase and then pay for the cost of the item plus sales tax at the cash register. It seems simple enough. As a small business owner, however, sales taxes can be more complicated and potentially more costly than you think. 

GS-business-gears-interlocking-blue-300wSetting up a new Lenovo Helix for a client and the first thing after updating firmware that I did was install Windows 8.1 (Took literally all night). It made the machine usable in my opinion so my hope is to only get a call about how to use this thing once a week. ;-) While viewing some youtube reviews of the device I ran across someone saying that the best feature of 8.1 was syncing the start menu with your desktop background. I didn't get it until I did it. Now the start/metro experience is so much better, makes the metro start screen look like just an app launcher which is so much better. It just feels right.

Here is a link on how to do it.

How much?  It's a reasonable question that you need answered, but nobody wants to tell you.  The reason they don't is that there are many variables that can make your Sage implementation cost more or less than someone else's, but we can give you a pretty good idea.  

You've been played before. You're vulnerable and nervous about opening up again. It wouldn't be the first time you've been lied to.

Back in 2011 we heard rumors that the iPad would be graced with Office's presence in 2012, and shortly thereafter we saw an actual photo of Office on an iPad. But... nothing. And then some more nothing. But it is coming ... promise.  Click here for more.

30 Years of Rave Reviews

We’re getting rave reviews on the new e-newsletter. I just want to let you know how grateful we all are for your help on this project—your great direction, patience and support are invaluable.

We would NEVER have gone this far without you!

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…

We are very satisfied with the professional demeanor of both Tessa and Michael and their willingness to go above and beyond the scope of their expectations to solve our computer-related issues.

We are very impressed with josh…he seems very knowledgeable and he communicates well…and he just seems like a nice person also…basically our dream consultant….

Again, we’re really impressed with josh and would not hesitate to recommend Nims to anyone.

I have been extremely happy with your service. Michael is truly devoted to his clients and has been great about working with our current vendor to get our issues resolved. The MXLogic transition was seamless. Our users barely noticed the change, which is always a plus. 

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.

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…

As someone who works remotely from a home office, connectivity and a reliable, functioning computer are absolutely critical to my ability to be able to perform. Recently my computer "crashed" and as you can imagine created great inconvenience. Your team of Joel, Tessa and Tim responded immediately.…

We are delighted with the service and we've received a number of comments by clients that they are very impressed with the way Tessa handles the problems and works with them. She REALLY picks up things quickly. We are continuously amazed and pleased that we only have to tell her something once and…

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…

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.

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…

....and, thank you for all YOU do. We are able to actually breathe easier knowing you're taking care of people. We have trusted you from the get-go because of your high intelligence, your ease at taking in and integrating huge amounts of new knowledge, and your grace and calmness in taking care of…
