Who does Technivise serve?

Technivise helps individuals and businesses navigate the jungle of technical decisions with objective advice and support. Quite often individuals and small business owners are faced with decisions about technology, security, Internet and computer networks, software, and other matters that affect their lives or the prosperity of their business.   Individual providers of various services are usually focused on making money for themselves, so the advice they give is biased for them, not the individual or business. 

What does Technivise do?

Technivise acts as an unbiased advisor and consultant that will provide you with options and solutions that are focused upon your objectives and needs, not those of the providers.  These are often more comprehensive and cost-effective solutions that work for you.   Technivise can also provide low-cost support for these solutions when independent providers are not the best choice. Because Technivise is well versed in engineering, science, communication systems, the Internet, electronics, and other technologies, we can provide a comprehensive view to present options for you that you might not have considered.  Some areas of our work include Technical Advice, Technical Support, Technical Consulting, Cyber Security, Systems Engineering, Internet Branding, Internet Presence, Web Presence, Security Assessments, Electronic Systems, audio and video enhancement and conversion, and Proposal Reviews.

What is Technivise’s background?

Technivise’s efforts started in 2001 under a different business and grew from a breadth of experience gained through education and the workplace and operating multiple businesses.  It expanded by helping other individuals and businesses be successful so they didn't have to worry about technology details that were essential to their success but not core to their primary business activity. Locally in New Mexico, Technivise has consulted with individuals and small businesses such as lawyers and lawyer offices, secretarial support, audio transcription companies, spas and salons, and store owners.  Our services are available country wide through remote support or for significant efforts, we can travel to you.

About the Owner

Michael Skroch (skraw) has 30+ years experience in multiple science and technology fields including Internet and web technologies, systems engineering, electrical engineering, audio manipulation and enhancement, computer science, cyber security, physical security, security assessments and design, branding, and controlling web presence.  He has worked with individuals, companies, and government agencies.  In addition, Michael has connections to a broad set of providers that can be leveraged to understand the most effective and cost-effective approach to your needs.

Approach

One of his best attributes is seeing the whole picture of what you’re trying to accomplish (sometimes suggesting a wider picture beyond your initial thoughts) so that you’re informed to make a decision.  That helps you know your options and get things done right the first time.  He also is skilled at coordinating a team to achieve your objectives when that approach can better meet your needs. Michael believes that trust, integrity, honesty, and confidentiality in business efforts is paramount in partnering together for your success.  His objective is your satisfaction.

Working with Customers

Each customer has their unique needs.  Michael starts with a free consultation talking with the customer to understand their situation and initial objectives and concerns with the technology, security need, or system they have in mind.  Using past experience and depending on what is learn from you, Michael may expand the discussion more broadly to help you, the customer, consider approaches they may not have considered.  If Technivise can help further, Michael will then sit down with our customer to gather more information to advise on a recommended approach best for their needs.  This may include other service providers, efforts from Technivise, and training so the customer can be self-sufficient.  If the customer needs help implementing their chosen approach, Technivise is there to assist as needed.

Internet, Website, Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Michael started developing websites in the early 1990s and has branded and marketed large programs with specific intent to reach different target audiences.  He regularly researches and applies these technologies in an ever-changing environment.   These skills have come to span multiple Internet technologies, Websites, WordPress, Online Marketing, Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Search Engine Placement (SEP), and Social Media Marketing (SMM).  His abilities in website development are in small to medium sized sites with simple to moderate complexity including graphics development, logo and branding, email, scheduling, and other business operations functions.  His broader perspective on technology helps make sure such services work well for your business.  He may with others on complex websites that may need custom and complex Content Management Systems (CMS), databases, or where eCommerse systems are involved.  Where high-end graphic elements are critical, he teams with artists and graphic designers to develop and integrated branding strategy.

Policies & Approach

If you like to know about policies and approach, take a look here!  They may be useful for understanding, discussing your efforts.  These policies embody the values through which Technivise seeks to operate. Technivise provides services across a variety of disciplines, so there may be specifics to each area we have to explain.  If you have questions about any of these policies, please contact Technivise.

Payment

Technivise accepts cash, credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Apple Pay, Discover, and American Express), and PayPal.  Checks are accepted from local and established customers. Payment terms will be negotiated with you.  Payment for substantial efforts and those with new customers will take place incrementally in advance.  Small efforts are typically payment due upon delivery.  Terms for deferred payments are also available in some cases.

Trust and Satisfaction

Your trust and satisfaction is our primary objective.   We strive for clear and frequent interactions to avoid miscommunication.  We let you know exactly what can and cannot be done and the risk associated with each activity. Much of the work that Technivise provides has a complexity customers do not want to know about -- that’s why you hire Technivise.   That doesn’t mean you can’t measure and see results.  Ask about how you will know you’re getting results and a good value. If someone else can serve you significantly better, or it’s better that a broader team provide your services, we’ll tell you. If you really want to know or learn the details of our efforts, we’ll tell you, especially if you will be maintaining results yourself into the future.

Owning Your Results

With Technivise, you’ll own your own results so that, if you choose, you can later “do it yourself” or use other providers best for you.  We won’t hold you hostage.   We’ll provide the files, passwords, and whatever else is associated with your project and brand with the exception of Technivise-owned systems such as when we host your website.

Technology Magic

We love it when customers think we perform magic; that usually means we’re doing a great job.  Unfortunately, we often see “real magic” promised by scams and disreputable providers.  Technivise won’t do that. Internet Presence: We strive to provide amazing results, but we do not promise magical results as you’ll see in many Internet scams or hype.    For instance, we do not promise instant page-1 search results from a website because that is magical.  However, in a reasonable time we can get you on page-1 or well seen on social media where it matters -- for your customers where you’re relevant.  Some business sectors are more competitive than others.  If you want instant, there are always methods to make it happen quickly, such as pay-per-click advertising.  Technivise won’t recommend something you don’t need.  We’ll lay out options for you to choose or listen to your options. Audio/Video Restoration and Enhancement:  We can often substantially improve audio quality for better understanding and transcription quality.  In some cases, audio is distorted in a way that cannot be improved and is not recoverable.  We can let you know when that is the case.  We can also help you understand how to better capture quality audio. Technology Consulting:  We will try to understand your need, do it for you, hold your hand while you do it, or teach you how to do it.  This category includes setting up computers, network, email, security systems, installing software and hardware, and using programs like Microsoft Office. Sometimes it’s hard to learn technology (and it may not be worth it), so we  cannot promise we can teach you everything and in a certain time period.  We’ll provide our best recommendation and options for you to consider.  Sometimes technology does not work because of incompatibilities or other complexities.  We’ll let you know if that’s an issue. Cyber and Physical Security:  Amazing improvements are often possible with small changes to reduce the risk of loss from cyber and physical attack on your business.  Impervious results will be high-cost and are relatively impossible.  Practical systems approaches at reasonable cost substantially reduce risk and allow recovery if something does go wrong.

Guaranty / Warranty

Technivise wants to delight you as a customer!  In any complex task, sometimes misunderstandings can occur.  Communication quickly solves such issues. Our guarantee is that in the end you’ll be more than satisfied with the value you receive from Technivise.  Because technology is complex and some aspects of it are subjective, we may have to adjust along the way.   Technivise quite often goes the extra mile to make things work without charging extra fees, so refunds are automatically included in what we do.

Michael had done a website, directory listings, and online marketing for him and made it bring in customers. I am the best at concrete, hardscaping, and landscaping, but have no idea how the Internet world works. Michael helped me see the whole picture, told me how to avoid scams and save money. He gave me options to choose and explained each one. On top of that he gives me ownership and access to everything and is reasonably priced. He reworked my logo, recovered all my lost accounts, produced videos, and is making a web design that works on desktop and mobile, and is getting me listed on directories without monthly costs. He's an honest guy that has told me like it really is. When I don't care or understand the technology, I just tell him to do what makes sense.  David G. - March 2017, see on BBB, Google Reviews  He is simply the best! Mike is pure genius.

He listens to my objectives, provides a set of suggestions which he describes and from which I choose to implement. Tasks I have asked for included website choices, development of websites, having me rank on Google searches, updating my website … managing that for me, selection of computers and Internet services, development and maintenance of an Internet presence and tracking of search rankings, as well as computer and cyber security issues. Michael is quite responsive and is there when I need him and he has always been trustworthy.  John S. - Feb 2016, see this and other reviews on TrustPilot, Facebook Michael has provided me with excellent service and value through his affiliation with Type-thing Services. He's helped me with my web presence including website, hosting, front-office email, online directories and online marketing choices. He also advises me on technology choices for my office.

He then helps me execute on that plan.  John S. - Feb 2016, see this and other reviews on Google Reviews
