Stopping IT Issues, Not Just Fixing Them

Have you ever wondered why office technology is so difficult to depend on? Many growing offices find it’s a challenge to not only get great staff to serve their clients, but also to ensure they have the right tools to get the job done efficiently and effectively.

Technology has become such an integral part of life and work, that most of us come to a point of frustration and standstill when it doesn’t work as it should. At that point, we are franticly trying to find someone to correct the issue so we can get back to our busy schedules.

Those common place occurrences can be a thing of the past. For years, the response to IT issues has been focused on how fast can we put out the fire. Savvy companies are realizing that their workforce is their most critical (and expensive) resource and it’s good for business to keep those people focused and productive. When things slow down or come to a standstill, organizations not only lose the confidence of their staff and customers, but also lose a lot of money in higher payroll costs and other high impact areas.

So how do you stop the madness? CHIPS Computer Services has the answer.

At CHIPS, we not only address questions and concerns, but we focus on the core structure of an office’s technology. When the underlying foundation is corrected, it becomes a dependable platform to allow staff to do what they do best and scale more systems and improve efficiencies. Our clients find that their frequent IT concerns virtually dissipate, allowing them to do more and make more money.

Erickson, Bell, Beckman, & Quinn, P.A.
In addition to serving as City Attorney for the City of Vadnais Heights, the law firm of Erickson, Bell, Beckman & Quinn, P.A. also helps individual and business clients solve unexpected problems—and to prevent them through proper planning. The firm was founded in 1962, and its experience is written in a half century of court cases, business deals, real estate developments, and the revival stories of hundreds of injured workers and families dealing with loss.

The seven attorneys at EBBQ have over 125 combined years of experience in employment law, workers’ compensation, personal injury, alternative dispute resolution, ERISA litigation, municipal law, criminal law, real estate transactions, wills and trusts, and business law, among other areas.

EBBQ is excited to announce the recent addition of attorney Erich J. S. Hartmann.  Mr. Hartmann is in his fifth year of practice in the areas of wills and trusts, probate, real estate, municipal law, and business law. Prior to beginning his private practice, Mr. Hartmann gained invaluable real estate knowledge and experience by working as a law clerk at the Ramsey County Title Examiner’s Office and at Home Line, the Minnesota residential tenant advocacy group.

Mr. Hartmann enjoys helping his clients achieve their goals by using the law as a remedy instead of an ailment. His business perspective comes in part from his experience managing the successful branding and marketing of a startup manufacturer of skatepark equipment. Mr. Hartmann’s work ethic was forged on the farms of rural Carver County, Minnesota, where he picked rock and baled hay for neighboring farmers in his youth. Although seemingly irrelevant to the practice of law, the willingness to toil all day in the face of adversity means that Mr. Hartmann will not back down from a challenge.

One challenge he enjoys is helping business owners create succession plans that minimize taxes and support future business and family goals. Especially with closely held companies, the business is like a baby to the business owner, and partners and staff are often like family—and sometimes they actually are family. Ensuring that the business family and biological family are taken care of in all circumstances is not necessarily easier than picking rock, but Mr. Hartmann says it usually involves fewer cuts and bruises.

In his free time, Mr. Hartmann enjoys fly-tying, fly-fishing, hunting, archery, camping, backpacking, canoeing, reading, writing, and spending time with his two boys, Jasper and Lars, and their German shepherd and chocolate lab
