Benson IT News - 2011-12-20

It has been both a busy and exciting time here at Benson & Associates over the last few months.  We are continuing to find innovative and proactive ways to assist our clients with all of their IT related needs.  We continue to offer services including: Infrastructure Design, Project Management, Technical Support, Data Centre Co-Location, Procurement, Deployment, Web Design and Application Development.  As we prepare for the holidays, we would like to share with you some of the recent happenings here at Benson & Associates.

Benson & Associates is now active not only in Edmonton and Calgary, but also has been working with new clients in Drayton Valley and Kelowna.  In August we took on existing Computer Mechanix clients in Drayton Valley and Brendan has been happily assisting current clients and working with new clientele to help Drayton Valley with all of its IT related requests.  Additionally, we would like to welcome John Dawson of Kelowna to the Benson & Associates Team!  He brings with him over 30 years of IT experience and is our new Kelowna based IT technician.  John has been working with us since the beginning of November and along with his IT expertise he has brought with him his clients from his IT business Biztek.   Whether you are located in Calgary, Edmonton, Kelowna, or Drayton Valley, please do not hesitate to contact our helpdesk with any IT related questions or problems as one of our IT technicians is always more than happy to assist you. 

As of December 5th, Benson & Associates is pleased to announce the addition of Aimee Wong to our team of experienced IT professionals.  Aimee holds the position of “New Media Designer” and she is enthusiastic about working with all of you by aiding you in the enhancement of your websites.  She will work alongside our clients through the planning stages of the websites up until the time the websites go live.  Aimee’s knowledge and expertise is a welcome addition to Benson & Associates’ website development projects. Feel free to call and speak with Aimee.  She will be more than happy to set up a website design planning appointment with you and/or answer any of your website design related questions.  A professionally designed website assists a company not only with corporate branding retention and recognition, but also with the peace of mind that their website is among the best available on the web today. 

During the month of November, Movember fundraising was upon us here at Benson & Associates.  Kris, Brendan, Tom and Vishal had some pretty notable mustaches as funds were raised for Prostate Cancer research and awareness.  A combined fundraising total of $2000 was attained by Benson & Associates’ Mo bros and Mo sistas. We would like to thank our donators and participants for this year’s fundraiser. Here’s to supporting a good cause and to shaving off these Mo-tastic mustaches!

As always, we are here to answer any of your questions and provide you with information on any of your IT related issues. Please feel free to call our toll free help line at 1(877)247-1664, or email with any questions you may have, or to talk about our enhanced support services and business offerings.  Our business is making sure your technology works for you.
