The Sylvester Computer Guy is a dedicated computer repair shop offering a wide array of services ranging from screen replacements, virus removal, and on-site support to website design, online marketing, commercial photography, and more! Owner/Operator Josh Beckstrom is an electronic gadget enthusiast with 15 years of experience. Not to be confused with just any old 'nerd', as an owner and manager of previous non-tech businesses, Josh brings a comprehensive and practical approach to each situation, fusing his knowledge on a vast array of topics with everyday business concerns and available technologies. This helps his business customers afford to do more without sacrificing performance. Not just a friend to businesses, The Sylvester Computer Guy also strives to address the problems faced by individuals as well. Low fees and easy-to-understand explanations help customers feel confident about what course they need to take. In either case, you are likely to find that dealing with this Computer Guy is more like dealing with just a nice, friendly person, rather than some egghead know-it-all!
Stepping into the store location, it is apparent that The Sylvester Computer Guy cares more about the customer than just about the technology. There's no drab white, dusty walls here. There's also no sales floor cluttered with endless heaps of parts. On the contrary, the air is clean, the floor is clear, the surroundings are professional and peaceful, and there is even a nice table with leather-padded chairs to sit at while you wait on a quote (or while using your laptop on the freely provided Wi-Fi). Heck, you can even get yourself a free cup of fresh, cold water or purchase a nice, hot instant latte or mocha to enjoy for a quiet moment before heading out!
The Sylvester Computer Guy joined the Sylvester-Worth Chamber of Commerce in March 2012 after seeing the need rise for computer repair among local friends and businesses. As demand for services rose, and scheduled visits around town increased, the decision was made to open a storefront downtown in order to be more convenient for customers and to provide a more predictable means of getting service by allowing a central place for drop offs and pick ups. The N Isabella Street location was opened in September 2012 as a sort of 'prelaunch' to 2013, which brings the promise of expanded hours and possibly more days open during the week. 'I want to make sure I do things right, and build slowly, so that I can continue to respond to the needs of the people with things they will actually want, not just force an idea about things they should need,' Josh said.
He isn't the only brains behind the operations at the store though: His wife, Melody, is actually the first person you'll probably see upon walking in. Having years of customer service experience herself, ranging from front desks to call centers, Melody is able to handle anyone who comes in, and get them channeled into the proper service for their problem. 'I like meeting people and helping them get what they need, it seemed like a natural fit for me.' If Josh is the face of the business, then Melody is its heart. Both have been active stewards of the community, volunteering time and talent in many areas such as creating professional photos for dogs waiting to be adopted at the Best Friends Humane Society each month, helping Worth County qualify as Georgia Camera Ready in an effort to attract production crews and revenue to the area, participating in and photographing ribbon cuttings, and attending many of the local events. So make sure to drop by the store on your next outing downtown and see what The Sylvester Computer Guy can do for you!
