Our Clients Respond…
– Richard Bach, New York Times Bestselling Author
What a remarkable service you’ve been, saving those thousands of files from machines we had given up as lost…thank you! We’re deeply impressed by your skills and creative solutions to the many problems that arose, and with your clear Executive Summary when the job was done. From our experience with Convenient Integration, we’ll recommend you and your company in the highest possible terms. Thank you!
– Justin Bog, writer
Convenient Integration has saved me from worries and the stress of losing enormous amounts of work– even when I’m the one who made a user error! Chris is always courteous and willing to do what it takes to meet my needs. I can ask some pretty basic questions and he fields them all with patience. He is a good listener. Convenient Integration is a greatly helpful resource and I cannot recommend the “tech wrangling” service highly enough.
– Jess Davis, site manager
Chris helped me move over from Windows to Mac, getting me up to speed with iTunes and iPod on the Mac and so on. On more than one occasion I have been “dead in the water” and he’s been able to figure out what’s wrong and solve computer issues over the phone– and he’s got me going again. He’s helped me with Gmail, he straightened out some DirecTV headaches and Bluetooth syncing between my phone and truck nav system, etc. Chris is an all around tech genius and I’m glad!
– Todd Evans, Rivendell Media
I cannot recommend Convenient Integration enough. I am in New York and they are on the other side of the country and still helped me and provided exactly what I needed when I needed it. We had three consultants here for a security system that told me I could not do what I wanted with Apple products. I’m not sure how I found Convenient Integration- I think via Apple but not sure- and well they proved the others wrong. I have a great system that we use each and every day. Thank you Chris! I’ve never met you in person but your results speak for themselves.
– Martin Katz, pianist, educator, conductor The gold standard of accompanists. –New York Times
I cannot rave enough about Convenient Integration. I admit that I find computers somewhat intimidating, and I’m neither inherently patient nor intuitive in their regard. How Chris has the patience to deal with the likes of me, I’ll never understand, but deal he does and my life is better for it. Chris doesn’t just fix things; he shows the “why” of it in ways I understand and consistently follows up with written and video documentation so I don’t have to remember it all. Chris is a gifted teacher, as I am never made to feel inept. To the contrary, I feel better, more capable– even empowered –after each tech visit. Bravo!
– Pamela Sue Martin, actor and writer
It worked of course! Just as you said, the photos were found. THANK YOU! I am feeling GREAT! I have to tell you, this is a major step to getting things accomplished without having to wait for my son to get home from school! You are the ONLY person who has ever spoken to me in computer language I understand. It’s really a talent. Have you ever considered teaching a course? Thanks, Chris, you are the best!
– Jen Aggergaard, Island Adventures Whale Watching
Thanks so much for your help! I am enjoying the new BusyCal and the SpamSieve spam filter works incredibly well. Also, I purchased the phone mount you recommended and I love it, it works great.
Chris, you are the Best Tech Wrangler in the West!!!
– Zia Gipson, working artist
Our household and small art-based businesses have used Convenient Integration for several years with everything from equipment upgrades and data transfers to operating system and network issues. Each time he has come through for us quickly, courteously and expertly. I trust Chris to give me advice I can rely on and to treat me with respect. He’s my go-to guy when I need a simple question asked or a big issue addressed. I’ve been using Macs since 1990 and have used a lot of different Mac consultants. Chris is the best by far. I wish I had found him a lot earlier. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone seeking solutions to their Mac problems.
– Raab & Raab, Inc.
Chris, my goodness, we appreciate you so much, as it’s very evident you care about people and have such helpful information to share. I had to tell you that you are way beyond a “tech wrangler” in my book! It’s so wonderful to learn about technology and many other ideas you share to make it all a cohesive and enjoyable experience. You’ve helped us more than we could have possibly imagined and we couldn’t give you a higher recommendation.
– Erwin Martens and Colleen Martens Independent Risk Advisor and Speech Pathologist
For more than six years Convenient Integration has proven invaluable as we established and continue to maintain home automation and security systems in our private residences. In challenging, complex, and sophisticated environments, Chris is the perfect combination of IT professional and seasoned project leader, working well alongside contractors as well as one-on-one with us (husband with computer science degree and wife, a novice computer user.) Chris is reliable, consistent, and responsive. He possesses top notch communication skills and comes to each job thoroughly prepared. We can’t imagine life without Convenient Integration– a rare, true gem in the technology consulting space.
– Cindy Hudson, Blank Generation LLC
Chris’s knack for technology has benefitted me for many years. He oversaw my security system installation and integrated it to meet multiple goals. He’s my trusted go-to source for all things technical and I continue to rely on him for our “Mac Genius” questions but also for comprehensive technical assessment and advice.
– Ivan Kral, Bohemia Music Rocker and key figure in New York’s creative underground. –New York Times
Chris guided me through a flawless PC to Mac conversion. Chris carefully listened to my concerns, reviewed them for clarity, and implemented a complete solution. His refreshing approach is relaxed and a relief from techy jargon. He truly cares about making my life better.
– Russ and Leslie Meixner, West Yachts
We feel so fortunate that we found Chris with Convenient Integration to guide us through the technical world of computers. His company name says it all. He “conveniently integrated” all parts of our business technology systems, unifying our office to operate at maximum efficiency. He has been indispensable to the daily operation of our hectic business. We know that our technical issues are in very capable hands and we trust him explicitly. We are so glad Chris is part of our lives. We highly recommend him to friends and fellow business owners.
