Selected Client Perspectives

“Derek has been assisting our firm with technical support for 5 years and has done a fantastic job! Derek provides support in the form advising which hardware and software to purchase and will even help us order what is needed. Whenever questions or problems arise in the realm of IT, Derek is always easily accessible and able to cater to our needs in a moment’s notice. It really puts you in a good state of mind to know that you have someone with that kind of knowledge and dedication backing you up. I would highly recommend Derek Houseworth to any business that is in need of technical support.”

“Derek has been instrumental in the success of our programs here at the Flathead Food Bank.  He quickly learned our Senior Food Delivery program and was able to create a database that has made the program so simple to implement and easy to keep track of our customers.  The speed and accuracy that he delivered were incredible and the program worked almost perfect from the very start.  Derek was wonderful to work with - from coming into our office and putting up with our crazy schedules, to being able to fix things when our computer skills lacked the ability to get through even the easiest instructions!  We are looking forward to him writing other programs for us that will continue to make our lives easier, and know that he is the best man for the job!”

He offers solutions with little to no disruption to our daily operations and always keeps in mind what our needs may be in the future.

We find him to be great to work with and a real asset to our company.”

“Thanks to Derek’s expertise and guidance, our office technology is updated to the modern era, our data is protected, and all for a price that was manageable for our nonprofit organization. Derek taught (and empowered!) us that even though we are a small nonprofit, we can still afford to have the best in equipment and tech systems. Derek is helpful, patient, extremely knowledgeable, and we enjoy his company. He is a tremendous asset to any nonprofit, and will go above and beyond to help your organization.”
     - Hilary Shaw, Executive Director, The Abbie Shelter, Kalispell, MT

“With my limited expertise I occasionally have problems with my computer. After trying to solved the problems myself, most of the time unsuccessfully, I contact Derek Houseworth. He works on my computer at my house and with his skills and knowledge he gets me up and going in short order. He talks on my level and shows me some of the techniques that will make things easier for my day to day work on the computer. I always recommend Derek to my friends.”

“I had Derek come to my home, as my son got me a tablet for Christmas and I had no idea how to work it. Derek was very patient with me and I would have to say that the thing I appreciated most was that he listened to me and what I wanted to do with my new tablet. He didn't try to talk me into all the bells and whistles and I really liked that. I would recommend him to anybody or business at any time. He had all of the answers and I loved it. I am also very computer literate so I had very pointed questions, and was very happy with the answers.”
