Case Study: Why Locally Sourced IT Matters


Think tomatoes are the only thing you should try to purchase from local sources? Kevin Krolczyk, president of Mint Roofing in Long Lake, Minnesota, would advise you to think again. When Krolczyk recently searched for help with managing his company’s migration from Outlook Exchange 2003 to Google Apps for Business, finding a “locally sourced” IT provider was near the top of his priority list. 

“I had been told by Google that I could handle the conversion on my own, but they also recommended a few national firms that could do everything over the Web if I ‘really wanted help,'” Krolczyk recalls. “I knew from past experience that when I’ve got a business issue, I want a local company helping us to get through it.”

Krolczyk’s friend, technology consultant Joe Nemastil, suggested he call Tech Guru. “Within days of my first contact with Dan Moshe [Tech Guru’s CEO], we had an initial meeting at our office,” Krolczyk says. “It wasn’t long into the conversation with Dan that I was sold on Tech Guru.”

Would Krolczyk recommend Tech Guru to others? Absolutely.

“They’re fun to work with and they get the job done,” says Krolczyk. “Plus, they’re local.”

Bonus: Tech Guru not only gained a wonderful new client with Mint Roofing, but also learned about — and then implemented — Nutshell CRM, which Mint Roofing had been using for its flexibility and ease of use. Read Tech Guru’s praise for Nutshell here.
