A BRIEF HISTORY
After relocating our family from the UK to the Algarve in 2004, we have been providing an all encompassing support service for home and business computer users throughout the region. Offering services ranging from single installations to complete office set ups, websites and fully automated management systems.
We are confident that we have the right solution for you.
After completing 'A' levels in 1989 I started work as a workshop based computer hardware engineer, responsible for repairing large mainframe computer systems down to component level. Within this time I also completed an HNC in electronic engineering. During my 7 years in this role I gained valuable experience in electronics, computer hardware repair, the Unix Operating System and also became a qualified Apple MacIntosh engineer.
In 1996 I joined an American based computer software company as European Senior Systems Administrator, supporting staff based in UK and France. As head of the European IT department I was responsible for every aspect of the IT and communication infrastructure in Europe, plus the day to day support of over 100 staff members. I was also involved in various projects such as implementation of Exchange e-mail servers, DHCP/WINS/DC servers, Active Directory, Managed AnitVirus solutions, RAS & VPN servers, Firewalls, File & Print servers, Database Servers, Web Servers & Website design, and project management of 2 office relocations.
After leaving college qualified as a Beauty Therapist in 1989, I went on to work for well known cosmetic companies such as Chanel, Lancôme and Clarins. I left the beauty business in 1995 to begin working for the European branch of an American based software company. Whilst there I gained valuable experience in various areas of computer software and administration, and found that I have a real enjoyment and creative flair for Website Design.
Since moving to the Algarve I have worked alongside Chris to combine my enjoyment of giving professional customer service, my technical knowledge and my love of making things look great, in all areas of my work.
My role within Techni-call has developed throughout the 15 years, as I have gained experience in different fields and learned news skills. Originally focussing on logo design, marketing material creation and website administration and design, I now also provide competant social media management and content writing skills.
