Plaid Systems

Computer Services for the Greater Farmington Area

When it comes to supporting computer systems over 20 years, I’ve serviced everything from private computers with dial-up internet connections, to small business networks, to large institutions with over 100 computers in just a single department—and everything in between.

Computer and networking technology is always changing, but there are lots of legacy computer systems and software platforms still in use. If they ain’t broke, why ‘fix’ ‘em, right? But what happens when those systems stop working?

That’s where I come in. With years of experience that have stretched over the ‘march of progress’ in computer technology, I have the experience to deal with legacy systems and the latest hardware and software. I know how to make them work and to make them work together.

So if you’re just looking to streamline your current systems, or you want to take advantage of the latest technology, give me a call at 207.370.9854 or email me at and let’s see how we can make it happen.
