UPDATE: An updated version of the Computer Business Kit has been released! It’s a major overhaul of the original and therefore requires a new review.
In the “Computer Guy’s Toolbox” series, I highlight a product or service that I think will benefit the independent computer tech, with an emphasis on affordability. One of the unfortunate aspects of running a computer consulting business is the paperwork. Like it or not, if you want to run a legitimate operation and protect yourself, you’ll want to document everything. Work orders, contracts, service plans, waivers, advertisements, customer and vendor tracking, it can all be a bit overwhelming, especially when first starting out. That’s where the Computer Business Toolkit comes in. Created by Bryce Whitty over at Technibble.com, the kit is simply a collection of useful document templates that a computer consultant can customize and implement in order to run a successful business. It’s available for purchase and download at Technibble.com. I recently got my hands on the kit and had the opportunity to check out all the goodies it contains. Being a wet-behind-the-ears newbie computer business owner, I was curious to find out how useful the kit would be.
