  • I was faced with the challenges of learning a new industry. ComputerEase software turned out to be an excellent learning tool for me, it’s so easy to use. Plus I got excellent training and support from all the people I work with at Common Sense Solutions — Ali, Amy, Beth, Ed, and Roxanne are all great! The one time there was a concern, I called the President, Terry, and we had a great conversation. How many places can you say you are comfortable calling the President and know he will listen to you, care about what you have to say, and even call back unsolicited later to see how you are doing.

    CSS is a rare company ....offering knowledgeable computer services in today’s business world, top notch technical support, and a staff that genuinely cares about their clients. In 20 years of business, contracting CSS was one of the best decision I ever made. It allowed me to be with my staff focusing on my customers, confident that the technical aspects were well designed, purchased and programmed for my needs. They were secured and backed up with remote assistance in a matter of minutes should the need arise! Once again I thank you for your tremendous support.

    “When my employees are happy, I’m happy. And I’m happier when I know I can focus on things other than IT. I tell everyone, don’t try to do it yourself, call CSS. If you do it yourself you’ll only make it worse! CSS’s help desk phone and remote support are invaluable services since my staff doesn’t have to spend time on it. We no longer have hardware problems like we used to have where viruses forced us to throw away $2,000 notebooks because we couldn’t wipe them clean. The cost savings from a data recovery perspective alone has been significant. Even in the unfortunate circumstance where a couple of my salesmen’s notebooks were stolen, I didn’t have to worry about recovering them. Now I have a spare notebook, and can get it restored and back up and running in no time.”

    With ComputerEase, we went from three programs to one.  We were using a database program to keep job details for our sales staff, QuickBooks for accounting and Excel spreadsheets for everything else.  No more jumping from program to program.

  • Support For The Paranoid:  As I’m working through new stuff, like lien waivers, I feel very comfortable calling support with questions.  I’m a paranoid person, and the support line is my reassurance that I’m not doing anything wrong.  As a new user, I need that calming effect.

    Thank you Sara, you're the best. I know I should have been able to get this straight, but I am glad to know that you and all the others at CSS are there to help when needed. By the way, I would like to tell you that we are very pleased with all the computer support CSS provides us and I think it was one of the best decisions we've made to partner with CSS for our computer needs. All I can say is THANK YOU and please keep up the great work.

    I’d recommend ComputerEase and Common Sense Solutions to any contractor. We get the job costing data we need from the software to run our business. Plus the support we receive is better than any other we’ve experienced.  It’s better, faster, and they definitely know the system.  With QuickBooks or other software programs, I was never sure who I was talking to or if they even knew what they were talking about.  I never worry about that anymore when I call with a support question.

    Ongoing support is great, I particularly like the free webinars that are offered. We especially took advantage of them when we were new users.  The information offered is very valuable.
