Setting up the ideal desktop computer

When you setup a new computer, what software do you install? What questions do you ask? How do you assure that your client has the best experience? Whether you are selling the computer, simply advising, or coming in after the fact, you have many obligations as a consultant. We will cover:
  • What needs to be done before the sale?
    • How do you assure that you match the hardware and software to your client?
    • How do you determine computer transfer procedures like data files, email, etc.?
    • How do you make sure your client and you are not price surprised?
  • Software Part 1
    • General software tools and tweaks you should use or install
    • Security software
    • Browser Adjustments
  • Software Part 2
    • Windows 10 issues
    • Mobile security
    • Backup
We hope to involve the audience and get input from as many consultants as possible. Please bring your questions and answers to share.
