When the opportunity presented itself to write a book, together with several of the world's leading technology consultants, I jumped at the chance.   The Tech Multiplier features chapters from fourteen of the best technology consultants across the United States and Canada.  The case studies cross nearly all industries and range from start-up size to very mature companies with hundreds and in some cases, thousands of computer users.

Together with industry colleagues Robin Robins, Jennifer Bleam, Bill Ooms, Jeff Brodie, Chirs Wiser, Frank Ballatore, Dan Donathan, John Motazedi, Linda Lynch, Dan Izydorek, Diana Spurgus, Fred Reck, Peter Verlezza and Jeanmarie Richardson, we have published The Tech Multiplier working with publisher Celebrity Press of Winter Park, Florida.  The book release is January 24, 2013 on Amazon.com and will be available, initially, in hard cover and shortly thereafter in Kindle format.  The Tech Multiplier will also be available at Barnes & Noble.  At $19.95, it's a bargain!  There are literally hundreds of thousands of hours of experience within the pages of this book.

We are living in a world where the ancient concept of "only change is constant" still rules - perhaps nowhere is this more important than in the world of computers.

Add to this the necessity to keep our businesses functioning at an efficient level of productivity, and you have a major requirement for computer expertise on demand.  In fact, hiring the wrong computer expert or consultant in business, however well intended, can easily spell disaster.

That's why I wish to share this book with you.  Along with my colleagues, we have specific areas of knowledge and expertise we have used to analyze situations and advise our clients.  We have extensive proven experience and education in integrating, implementing and changing systems.  We discuss how to blend operators, equipment and systems, as well as explore disaster recovery systems and the "Cloud."

My chapter won an Editor's Choice award which I am proud of.  I hope you will enjoy the book and I welcome your feedback at any time.  Feel free to reach out to me at peterv@smbnetworksllc.com.

Good Reading!
