Over Thirty Five Years of Client Support!

Why no stock photos of models holding computers and other clip art on our site?
...We're computer consultants, not web site designers.  

FinePeter Consulting Inc. can provide strategic planning and solutions for the individual and the large or small company , covering all aspects of system integration, networking design and maintenance, and on-site support. We work with you from the initial purchase to final installation. Our Crash Avoidance Strategies (SM) help create a conservative and safe environment to be productive. We can coordinate with either your own or our outside contractors to take care of most needs including reliable sources to purchase your equipment.  

Our web site reflects our sensibilities which are to try and keep as much as we can simple and direct. We feel it is the best way to communicate the often complex nature of technology consulting.

We work closely with a network of other consultants around the country extending our coverage when needed yet tightly integrated as desired.

Department Setup and Support - M.I.S./I.T. **

Started in 1987 as a Macintosh computer consulting firm, we have added PC support which is best suited to the needs of a cross-platform office environment.

FinePeter Consulting Inc. can act as an affordable "M.I.S./I.T. Department" for those companies who do not or can not have a full time on-staff presence by providing weekly or monthly "check ups", data back up implementation and technology support monitoring. We have had much success in supplemental coverage to those companies who already have M.I.S./I.T. Departments but lack either the man-power or experience to handle the specific needs of Macintosh computers. We can help you set up your own permanent department.

While we do not believe in mindlessly updating the OS or major third party software, since updates can impact you negatively, we can provide you with remote support to keep your software current and your operating systems "cautiously compatible" . We prefer our clients to not be part of the industry guinea pigs who just run all updates because they are released. You are not their beta testers.

Remote Support for Desktops and Servers

We offer REMOTE monitoring of your Mac Servers as well as Data Back Up monitoring and Retrospect scripting as we are a Retrospect Partner.
We also offer REMOTE DESKTOP SUPPORT FOR YOUR STAFF ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD as long as they have an internet or wireless mobile connection. We offer similar services for Windows Servers and  desktop computers

FinePeter Consulting's Computer Services Introduction. In preparing for the first appointment with FinePeter Consulting, we would like to share this information in a PDF document. We are always happy to provide guidance and discussion on any of the points but it should be understood that on-site consulting fees might be wasted unless you, the client, are also prepared for our visit.

Support for small to large corporate environments as well as many individual clientele.
Often supervises on-premises staff working together as a cohesive department.

One of our clients had offices in four, far apart cities in the United States. The task was to upgrade all offices to same Mac OSX but due to the fact that all offices had their own timetable to coordinate in all locations to be using the same versions of all Desktop Publishing software at weekend's end.

The complexity of the project centered around finding the right time in each office based on their own production schedules along with available time for our consultants in each city and this proved to be a logistics nightmare. However, it was completed on schedule with all office users coming in on a Monday to find their machines upgraded and capable of working on the same versions of all software.

In addition, all desktop users in all locations can now be remotely configured and software upgraded from the main office in New York as well as our own remote capabilities.

A example of a long term project: We took a company, over the course of three years, from six Macs in a single room to a network of one hundred machines. This covered multiple floors on a major corporate backbone network and all were connected to file servers, an email server, an event/contact management server and a remote access system network. We helped formulate operational policies and guided their technology needs for many years.
