San Diego IT services

Let’s be honest, you don’t have time to deal with computer problems. After all, if your system goes down or something goes wrong, the downtime can be devastating to your bottom line. There’s no time for poking around and trying to piece things together. You need to be up and running FAST.  What’s even better than having a skilled, vetted IT master at your beck and call?  Having a system that monitors itself 24/7/365 scanning for potential problems before they even happen!


The future is here! Any professional service (doctors, dentists, accountants, attorneys, etc.) understands the importance of having their documents, records, and files ready-to-go at a moment’s notice. Having a reliable, secure system is a must.

Our Continuous Monitoring system is a lean, mean, detective from the street. OK, maybe not, but it is a small, barely noticeable, monitoring powerhouse that keeps your machine running smoothly.

The program run quietly in the background.  It’s so small you won’t even notice any slowdown or lag in your system.  Don’t let its small size fool you!  The program is like having a technician living in your computer.  It constantly checks your system to make sure all your services are running, that your computer is up-to-date, and that your system is capable of keeping up with your busy schedule.  If it finds something that it can’t fix on its own it alerts our team of engineers so they can handle the issue before it is a problem for you, keeping you and your team productive and profitable.

Continuous Monitoring will:

  • Runs in the background using minimal resources
  • Monitor hardware health
  • Initiate software deployment
  • Implement Windows service updates and patches
  • Alert our team of potential problems
  • Offer ScreenConnect remote support, so our IT professionals can fix your system from afar

There are few certainties in business except: there are never enough hours in the day or enough money in the bank. While you’re being the productive, busy bee, it’s hard to imagine fitting even one more thing in, especially if that “one more thing” is something as important as maintaining your computer systems, network, and equipment. Who has the time? Who has the expertise?

What does an IT firm do?2020-01-10T03:33:07-08:00

An IT firm provides direct IT management, remote and on-site technical support, data recovery services, emergency IT services, IT consulting,
infrastructure services, and more. In other words, it’s a first-rate IT department that you can hire on a per-job or monthly basis.

These services are primarily used by small businesses throughout San Diego and across California that require IT support but don’t need or
currently lack an internal IT department. In some cases, IT firms may also be hired by companies whose IT employees lack the necessary training
or experience required to perform a certain IT task.

What is on-site technical support?2020-01-10T03:49:52-08:00

The more complex a device, the more difficult it is to fix. Needless to say, computers and network systems
are comprised of a large number of high-tech hardware and software components, and as such can be exceedingly
difficult to repair. Trying to do so remotely (such as via phone), can be inefficient, frustrating, and unreliable.

Luckily for you, on-site technical support solves that problem. By sending our experts straight to your location,
The Computer Admin is able to tackle your problem head-on and solve it in record time. You and your employees will
be able to focus on your work while we deal with your issue.

What is a VoIP number?2020-01-10T04:00:44-08:00

A VoiP number (also known as virtual phone number or Voice Over IP) is an actual telephone number that is assigned to
a certain user, but not to a specific phone line. This allows you to use the same VoiP number to make calls from any
place and any device, including computers, phones, VoIP phones, and tablets.

How does VoIP work?2020-01-10T06:58:15-08:00

Instead of routing calls through a phone line, VoIP uses the Internet and LANs (Local Area Networks) to place calls.
Not only does this make VoIP both faster and more affordable, it also means your calls are unaffected by traditional landlines.

This prevents problems such as low sound quality due to distance, unstable connection, or even complete communication
breakdowns due to outdated or malfunctioning landlines. With VoIP, you’ll never be at the mercy of a phone company.

What is the difference between fixed and non-fixed VoIP?

A fixed VoIP service is associated with a physical location and can’t be obtained by an individual or organization that is
outside the US. As their name suggests, non-fixed VoiP services don’t have to be associated with an address and can therefore
be easily obtained by organizations and individuals not located in the country.

Will my VoIP in San Diego use San Diego area code?

Not unless you want it to. Unlike standard phones, your VoIP number can have an area code of your choosing. This is invaluable if,
for example, you wish to use the top VoIP San Diego has to offer, but you don’t want to pay the fees for long-distance calls.
By enabling you to choose a local number, VoIP saves you money and helps you establish credibility. It’s also useful if you want
to have multiple local numbers that all route to the same location.

What are managed IT services?2020-01-10T04:05:04-08:00

In the past, IT firms used to charge an hourly fee, or on a problem-by-problem basis. Managed IT services are the opposite of that:
they combine proactive monitoring of IT infrastructure or workstations with unlimited IT support packages that charge a flat monthly fee.

In other words, because they don’t charge on a per-case basis, a dependable San Diego company that provides managed IT services has a
vested interest in keeping your computers and network systems in tip-top shape at all times. In addition to keeping expenses low, this
will also prevent downtime and make sure any problems are solved ASAP.

Why your business needs managed IT services2020-01-10T04:06:31-08:00

Sooner or later, every computer, phone, or other piece of technology will start acting up or even break down completely.
If this happens to your work computer or even your company’s entire network, it can cause devastating financial losses due to downtime and missed deadlines.

That’s where the finest managed IT services in San Diego come in. In addition to supplying the full range of remote and on site IT services, our superb IT technicians can also recover and backup data, upgrade your network, and help protect your business.

Are managed IT services in California expensive?2020-01-10T04:15:27-08:00

Not if you hire The Computer Admin. We strive to improve the lives of freelancers and small businesses alike by offering them
managed IT services that are both highly effective and competitively-priced.

We achieve this by creating unique service plans that are designed to fit your particular needs and budget. This way, you’ll
be able to get exactly the support your business needs without breaking the bank. This is one of the many reasons why we’re
among the best IT companies in San Diego.

How much do you charge small businesses for IT support in San Diego?

It’s impossible to provide a universal answer to this question. The reality is that different services have different costs,
many of which are further affected by the client’s specific needs. For instance, the price of replacing a network card varies
widely depending on the brand and model of the replacement hardware.

When in doubt, it’s best to contact The Computer Admin and describe your situation to our personnel. We will suggest the most
effective and budget-friendly solution for your problem.

What is data recovery?2020-01-10T07:01:15-08:00

All data is stored either on a hard drive (an actual disk on which data is written) or on some type of flash storage
(high-speed, electrically-programmable memory). Both flash storage and hard drives can be physically damaged or have
their software corrupted in some way, causing the data on them to become inaccessible or even completely destroyed.

Data recovery is the process of taking a faulty hard disk or flash storage, and recovering some or all of the data
that was stored on it before it malfunctioned. Unfortunately, data recovery isn’t always possible, which is why
backing up your data is critical.

What is data backup?

Data backup safeguards your important files by keeping an up-to-date copy of them on another computer. This computer can either be located on your premises (on-site) or elsewhere (off-site). Which of these two backup options you choose depends on your specific needs.
For example, if you run a video editing business, you likely work with large media files that need to be readily available at all times, making on-site backup the superior option. On the other hand, if you store a lot of sensitive client information, having it backed up off-site is both safer and more convenient.

Why do I need off-site data backup?

Most modern SSDs and hard drives are built to last a decade or more, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be damaged or stolen. Power outages, system failures, fires, floods, burglaries, computer viruses, and other unforeseen events can all cause your data to become corrupted or lost.
At best, this will cause downtime and financial losses for your company. At worst, it can ruin your company and even cause you to get sued for losing sensitive client data. Off-site data backup prevents this problem by literally keeping your valuable files at a different location.

How do I optimize my company’s network?2020-01-10T07:04:30-08:00

Not even the most skilled craftsman can do much without the right tools. Likewise, companies are often held back by their own
badly-organized computer networks. After all, you can’t get much work done if you’re constantly wrestling with your own
inefficient network system.

As one of the best IT companies in San Diego, The Computer Admin provides
second-to-none IT consulting that can help you set up a robust network system that greatly improves productivity and makes
full use of your available resources.

What computer hardware should I buy?

This depends on what work you and your employees are doing. Resource-intensive work such as photo editing and 3D design requires
powerful hardware and a large storage capacity, and it can’t be done at all on an old or slow machine. On the other hand, the MS
Office package doesn’t run any worse on a mid-tier laptop than it does on a cutting-edge workstation.

The trick is to buy a system that fits your company’s needs without going overboard or buying something that’s low-end. The good
news is, our hardware gurus can recommend the equipment that perfectly suits your workload and even find places where you can
purchase it at an affordable price.
