In 1986, while finishing college and starting a family, Catherine and Larry Wendt received a call. Larry’s dad, Al Wendt, was at a mason contractors event and mentioned to another mason contractor that Larry and Catherine, “did something with computers.” The gentleman had just brought a computer into his office and was having problems. When he got back in town, he called Larry.
“I heard you work with computers,” he said. “Mine’s broken; come fix it.”
And so began our support of computers in the construction industry. From there, we began helping all types of contractors with their new computers.
In 1995, one of our clients purchased Master Builder (Sage 100 Contractor), a construction-specific accounting and project management solution, and asked if we’d be willing to find out more about it so we could help them. So in 1995, Larry hopped on a plane and headed off for training. Soon, we were able to help upgrade our client to the very first Windows release of the software, Version 6.
Syscon has gone on to support our construction clients with a full suite of IT services, including network support and maintenance; backup disaster recovery solutions; anti-virus and anti-spam; remote access for sales, owners and job trailers; custom software integrations and reports; private hosting; monitoring and automated updates through managed services; paperless office solutions; financial report compilation; bank reconciliation and payroll reporting; and everything else computer-related.
We found a real passion for the non-profit industry. These organizations need a variety of levels of computer expertise, making it hard for them to find the right full-time person with the breadth of IT knowledge required, an appropriate salary range and the ability to keep them interested.
By providing out-sourced IT support since the early 1990s, we’ve been able to meet budget guidelines, provide recommendations and IT reports in plain language for board members, and provide the right mix of technical expertise. We serve small- to medium-sized offices, all the way up to large companies that require a daily on-site help desk and special projects assistance for complex networks.
Syscon provides a full suite of IT services including hardware, network support and maintenance, remote access, backup disaster recovery, automated monitoring with critical updates, anti-virus and anti-spam services, custom software integration solutions, seminars, and educational articles. More recently, Syscon added private cloud hosting for organizations with multiple satellite locations.
Back in the late 1990s, Syscon began working with a veterinarian with multiple offices who was having issues with remote-office access and their specialized veterinary software. Since then, we’ve supported the computer needs of veterinarians and their clients, along with industry-specific software, making use of private clouds and backup disaster recovery solutions.
