Hi, I’m Jamie Savoy, and along with my wife Lori, am the owner of Savoy Technologies. Before starting my own business in 2014, I worked at the College Avenue Vision Clinic for almost twenty three years. On top of managing their lab and being an Optician, over time, I also became their System Administrator. The system there ended up becoming more complex than one might think, especially when the “paperless” age came in. My tasks there included building, maintaining, securing, diagnosing and fixing almost anything technical. It included anything from computers, software, to the phone system, printers and optical equipment, as well as a fairly complex network system, and training the staff, and… I won’t bore you with all of the details, but it started me off on a very faceted learning experience, a continuing education as it pertains to technology, and how to work with people both who love technology and those who don’t like change (*cough* hi, honey).
Over time, like a lot of people that do this, friends and family started to come to a geek they know for help. Over the past twenty years this ended up flourishing to friends recommending me to other friends, and then to some businesses and the next thing I knew I had built up a nice little customer base. This eventually started to consume most of my free time, but I loved it. For a number of years I’ve had people tell me that I should start a business and do this full time. I had given it some thought from time to time, but over the past few years, and with the kids grown and moved out, it really started to weigh on me. With the support of my wife and family, and positive feedback from friends, I decided to go ahead and follow my passion as a career.
Lori helps out by doing the bookkeeping, taking calls, website ideas and keeping me planted. She has a really good eye, and is great for bouncing ideas off of when it comes to taking something complex and making the experience simple for the end user.
We are currently working out of our home, but don’t let that fool you! We have a very well-equipped office that allows us to work on multiple tasks at the same time, and over the years have honed out a system to make it as convenient as possible for clients to get the help they need in a timely manner. Between remote support, me coming to you, or you dropping off your equipment at our home in Hancock, we can make your experience pretty painless… Also, with us working out of our home, it cuts down on some of the overhead that allows us to make our services more affordable.
