“I have worked on a number of clients’ projects with Tai and First Stop IT. I have always found Tai to be a talented IT system designer who listens to the business needs of his clients to ensure that the final solution fully meets their requirements.

He has in depth knowledge of server & desktop hardware, Microsoft software, and range of security, backup, and cloud services. Tai is able to easily communicate and explain these services and features to others who do not have technical background.

With the backing of an excellent team of engineers at First Stop IT, I found their service to be fast and professional with great on-going support.”
