These days, Computer retailers are ramping up customer assistance in an effort to better serve their small-business customers. Case in point: Major retailer Office Depot provides special service representatives who build custom PCs and solutions for businesses.
Gateway recently announced it's rolling out two new small-business programs to all 164 Gateway Country Store locations by the end of this month. One is the development of all-new Gateway Business Solutions Centers. These small-business shopping areas, packed full of networked systems, servers, PCs and notebooks, are designed to offer more personalized attention for Gateway's business customers. In addition, the Gateway Business Network Specialist program is a move by Gateway to partner with local resellers in Gateway territory and offer all-in-one networking solutions to its customers.
The time has never been riper for getting to know your local computer retailer.
