Information Systems design, interaction and solutions for the arts, education and business.
This is the my primary launch site for the technology services I offer. I am John Sappington. I have for the past 20 years operated as a freelance Information Technology Consultant and Computer Systems technician – my primary focus is small business, non-profits and individuals working primarily in the arts and graphic design industries. I provide consultation on networking and computer systems to support all areas of business and all levels of graphic production.
If you, your company or others you know are in need of assistance regarding technology including : computer systems, network systems, graphics systems, graphics media and or advice, phone systems or security. Please consider me, I work to mitigate the inflated cost and hype of new technology to provide you with a solid, reliable and affordable technological base from which to operate your business.
