Commercial and Industrial Account Services
 
TQF.US provides a wide range of commercial services for clients throughout Maine, including emergency repair, training, troubleshooting, network diagnostics, upgrades, installations, relocations, security reviews, consultations, evaluations, system builds, and sales.
 
With over 30 years of experience in the computer field, TQF.US has worked on mainframes, communication pads, electronics, and just about every type of computer there is. Currently focused on Microsoft-based systems, we can help with your unique problems and needs from workstations to network infrastructure to servers.
 
Consulting
 
When contemplating a shift in IT, whether a new server or different software, TQF.US can help you sort through the choices and arrive at the best solution. If you have a particular need that your current systems are not providing, we can locate and evaluate specialized software applications to address almost any situation. Custom software can also be contracted for those rare cases when nothing exists to present, compute, and store your data.
 
Upgrades
 
When  systems are running slow and it is time to upgrade, a choice has to be made between system replacement and incremental component upgrading. From an office with three workstations or a paper mill with twenty servers, TQF.US has the experience to provide the right solution for your budget while meeting or exceeding your bandwidth needs. With a full analysis of the situation you can get the right upgrade and solve the problems the first time, so you don't end up spending thousands of dollars only to see the hourglass mysteriously reappear after the upgrade.
 
Training
 
New hardware and software systems require user training, and that often means giving workers time off to attend expensive classes with negligible results. Let Norm come in and train your workers at your location on your equipment, giving them real experience and insight that they can take to work with them. TQF.US's unique approach and style helps students learn the best methods and gives them access to answers they wouldn't find at school.
 
System Builds
 
TQF.US has been building computers since the 1980's and has a wide range of hardware and software available to fit every need. Built for reliability and upgradeability, most of his systems are still in use long past the three year warranty period. Whether you need a new workstation for word processing or a new server to run three states, we can put the pieces together for you and include any software at the time of the build. This is especially valuable to those clients running proprietary systems with particular software needs, as it saves time during the installation phase by simply turning on the switch and starting work rather than starting to install and configure the software. Complex installations are his specialty, so give us a call the next time you need a new computer.
 
Servers
 
Whether you need a new Intel Xeon server with Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 or need help with your existing Microsoft or Novell server, we have the experience to help solve your tough problems. We offer a wide range of services related to your network and storage infrastructure and we travel statewide in Maine to your location.
 
Disaster Recovery
 
We are available for emergency diagnostics and disaster recovery and offer advanced data recovery options for any media, from large RAID arrays and SAN configurations to flash drives, optical discs and even floppies. As a Kroll Ontrack Data Recovery Certified Partner, TQF.US has access to the top data recovery labs and software. We can recover data from physically damaged disks or equipment that has been through a fire or flood, as well as deleted or formatted partitions and other data loss scenarios.
 
The most important thing to remember when you have had a hard drive crash or other data loss situation is to leave it to the professionals. Trying to recover data yourself can lead to the permanent loss of information, and every attempt reduces the chances that a professional lab will be able to recover data. The best approach to data loss is to power off the machine and call the experts immediately.
 
Data Destruction Services
 
Don't just throw out or format your old hard drives when upgrading your computers. Sensitive data can be easily recovered from nearly any system with the right software or help from a data recovery lab. Our secure erase services allow you to scrub the data from entire drives, or just the unused portions of drives that are still in use. Let TQF.US pick up your obsolete computer equipment to haul off, and we will erase every hard drive and other media for free, ensuring your sensitive files don't end up in the wrong hands.
 
Microsoft Office
 
Installing a new suite of Microsoft Office, or upgrading the old suite to the new edition? We can help you choose the right version and make the migration painless and easy. Ready to move to a hosted Exchange Server platform? Our rates are very competitive for hosted servers and we can help you upgrade your existing installation, move to a hosted solution or even help you move away from one and back to standard email to save some monthly fees.
 
Intuit QuickBooks
 
TQF.US offers sales and support of the entire line of QuickBook products from Intuit, including their recently announced system to allow anyone to Take Credit Cards on your iPhone, iPad, or Android. Free Card Reader Included - Try Intuit GoPayment.
