Northville Business Spotlight on Vision Computer Solutions
This week, we highlight Vision Computer Solutions located in Northville Square.
There are many interesting businesses that call Northville home, from clothing retailers to restaurants to salons and even businesses you might not have known existed in your own backyard.
Each Thursday, we'll feature a new Northville business to learn more about its roots and more. This week, we feature Vision Computer Solutions (VCS), located in Northville Square. Below, Vice President Peter Marsack tell us more about it.
Q: When were you founded?
Vision was founded in 1995 and moved to our first office on Center Street in 2001. We just recently moved to a larger office in the Northville Square building in June 2012.
Q: How did your business come to be?
The original founder started the company in 1995 to provide technical computer service for home, friends, and family. After a couple of years, the technical services started to extend to the small business realm when in 2000 Vision started putting a serious focus on the small business and their technology needs. In 2007, Vision evolved their offerings to provide fixed-cost IT services that prevented problems from happening versus the traditional break/fix model of computer service. Over the past 5 years we have focused on creating a culture where people love what they do and enjoy helping our clients grow.
Q: Why did you choose Northville?
The owner was born and raised in Northville, currently lives there, and loves the town and area. It is a beautiful area and a short drive to work!
Q: What kinds of services do you offer?
VCS provides best-in-class business technology consulting. That means we remove your IT problems, unhappiness and stress and replace it with an efficient and powerful technology system that helps your business become more productive and realize more revenue. On a 24/7, basis we support, manage and maintain our client’s technology systems. No more hourly rates, variable cost or surprises. Our services are fixed-cost, predictable and proactive. We help businesses plan for their own growth and help them make decisions on whether or not technology changes will add any value to their business purpose. We talk about questions like “What is the cloud?” and “How can I work from home?” and “How can I reduce my IT support costs?" We plan, we consult, we are their trusted technology partner who is there for the quick calls like “Should I buy and iPad?” and the long calls like “I need a whole new network, what do I do?”. We are a customer service company first, and professional business technologists second.
Q: What's a fact about your business that most customers probably don't know?
We promote and advocate a culture that is reflected most accurately in books such as “Delivering Happiness…”, “Linchpin”, “Good to Great”, “Great by Choice”, and “The Law of Success in Sixteen Lessons.” We are fun, but professional. We relax, but deliver expected results. We work hard, but have meaningful purpose to why we work hard (to promote family and well-being, in our core values). We are not your typical company where you punch a clock and dread going to work. We are a place where you want to spend your time and are a part of a meaningful purpose and outstanding staff of creative, intelligent individuals. Our clients see this when we work with them every day.
Q: What do you want your business to be best known for?
Mostly the aforementioned culture we have created. We want to become the most well-known, best practiced based IT consultant in SE Michigan. We want to be a place that people want to become a part of. We want to be the team that takes the dread and confusion out of technology.
Q: What's your most popular product or service?
Our Vision ForeSite Program is our most popular service. Fixed cost, unlimited access to the best team of IT professionals in the state. Your staff can call or email our team anytime, anyplace and get instant help when they need it the most. One program provides access to what will become one of your most powerful relationships in your business – one that will be there for years to come. Most small businesses cannot afford an IT person. Why have one when you can have an entire company worth of IT resources for half the cost?
