PCs: Soups to Nuts is a very user friendly service provider. Sharon and her team have always responded very quickly to any issues or concerns my Company has had over the past 20 + years. Even more important to me as a small business owner very concerned with costs, Sharon looks for solutions that will save me money. Just recently, Sharon suggested a change to our back-up system that was less than the one we were currently using and more efficient for us. I highly recommend choosing PC Soups to Nuts to provide all your IT support needs. — David K. Kaczynski, President / CPAKaczynski & Associates, Ltd.

“When it comes to computers, I need someone who is reliable, trusting, and easily understood. When I started with Sharon about six years ago, I was having trouble with periodic hardware breakdowns. I went with her recommendation and switched to Dell, which resolved that problem. She is available through email or phone and responds personally. Her timely replies engenders a feeling of trust and I especially appreciate it when I’m having a computer issue. Lastly, my office is small and we are busy doing what we do. When it comes to computers, she explains the bottom line clearly and simply with appropriate hand holding. I also appreciate her patience especially when I have repeated the same question five times. I would recommend Sharon without reservation.” — Michael Y Harada DMD

“Sharon Meyer and PCs: Soup to Nuts has been our own personal IT department for over 20 years, an invaluable service to our small business. When you are not big enough to have your own IT department, Sharon fills that void. She has helped us evolve and grow and been there with the latest in technology solutions for our small business. Accordingly, we have stayed relevant in this ever changing technology climate. Without Sharon’s patient and informed assistance, we might still be in the dark ages.” — Karen Bloom, PrincipalBloom, Gross & Associates, Inc.

“Sharon Meyer has been my IT consultant for over 20 years. I also referred her to three of my clients who have been happy clients of hers for decades. Her excellent service and knowledge make me look good and make her a valued member of my referral team.
And here is an example of the service Sharon provides her clients. One morning I opened my computer and one of my programs was not working correctly. I closed it and rebooted. It became apparent that nothing was working right. Panic set in. Of course I was on a deadline. I called and emailed Sharon. Within a few minutes she answered and logged in to my computer. She deduced that my hard drive had major problems. We could get a free replacement form Dell, but that would take two days. After ordering the hard drive, Sharon worked some magic so I could work for the two days. And she backed up my entire hard drive to make sure I wouldn’t lose anything. The drive was delivered. I brought her my laptop. And she cleared her calendar to install it in record time. That kind of service is priceless, and her fees are actually quite reasonable.” — Iris Marreckiris b. branding & communications

“When I moved into a new office, I decided to start with all new computers, a new server and updated software. We have multiple software applications that required communication between the software. Sharon did all the research for each software company to determine the requirements necessary for the workstation computers and server and how they can bridge between them efficiently. She implemented all hardware and software seamlessly and made the transition very simple and error free. She is always attentive to all the needs of my staff and any computer issues that come up. Sharon has made my life simpler since I know I can trust her to take care of my office in a timely manner.
My favorite feature she provided is access to the server remotely which allows me to get the information I need without having to go to the office. She is great at offering her expertise for computer solutions based on what our office may need. All of her suggestions help my office run more efficiently, computer solutions I would never have been aware of.
She is great at problem solving, and if she does not know an immediate solution to the problem, she researches the issue and comes up with several solutions that will work and implements the best fix for our office. I am often asked who our IT person is and always recommend Sharon. Anyone who works with her agrees she is easy to talk to and efficient in her computer solutions.” — Dr. Martin Rogers, DDSBest Endodontics of Glenview, Ltd.

“Our company is small so we don’t require a full IT department to keep us going. But we must be able to communicate with our clients and manage our business using technology. Sharon has been our “IT Department” for 17 years and I don’t know what we’d do without her. She helps us keep our software and equipment up to date and secure. And, most importantly when there’s an emergency, she is always there for us — calmly diagnosing and addressing the issue. Sharon is a valued colleague and teammate of Red Rooster Consulting, and I greatly appreciate her.” — Rosemary M. DiMonte, Principal Red Rooster Consulting, Inc.

“We had two months to plan and execute our move. Sharon’s plan included all aspects of IT, moving phones, hardware, software, internet, phone analysis, network/data sharing, backup, purchase and installation of all of the above. Sharon took it upon herself to go on-site to our old Virginia office and potential sites in Illinois to make certain she understood our needs. Her attention to detail is always right on target. She coordinated working with several vendors year-end when schedules were difficult to coordinate and completed the project. Her approach and billing is always fair and honest. Since we moved, our IT systems have run smoothly. I credit Sharon’s monitoring of products, being proactive and attention to detail for keeping things running smoothly.” — Jonathan Salk, Executive DirectorCORFAC International

“Sharon has handled all of our computer needs for over ten years: home computer, syncing and iCloud issues and constant small business questions for me. She guided us through purchase and configured laptops for both daughters to meet requirements for small liberal arts colleges and graduate schools, installing “Log Me In” software so she can handle questions remotely. She explains things in plain English and never makes us, or I should say me, feel incompetent for asking.
