We’ve been operating with the trade name “iT Guy Technologies” for the past nine years. The name has served us well, particularly in the early days. We launched the company as a service and consulting company specializing in Information Technologies for the graphic arts and publishing trades. We joined the Apple Consultants Network a few years later and for around four years or so we were an Authorized Apple Reseller, providing Apple software and hardware to our clients.
That said our real passion has been in creating compelling solutions for our clients. That has been either as developing interactive web sites and for the past five years developing apps for the iOS platform. Over the nine years, our business focus has shifted from IT services with a small percentage of development to mostly software development. We’ve been mulling over whether to spin off the IT services or create a new company that focusses on development only. Having “iT Guy” in the name of the company has often obscured our real value as technology consultants. It has also managed to pigeonhole our business. Half of our clients know us as developers and the rest think we just fix email problems. In fact, I prefer to think of myself as a renaissance man, mastering many fields and delegating the rest.
In truth I’ve been developing apps since the early nineties. A few years ago I even registered Meathead Games. (some of you will understand.) It’s time for a name change.
Here are some of the names I came up with. Let me know what you think? (imagine ending with Software or Development)
