Who We Are

Teknosophy Company History

What started as a side business to help friends and family in 2009 solidified into a Limited Liability Company in 2011. The idea for the business was born from the realization that there were few computer experts in the area who could explain what they did... at least not in Plain English, so that non-computer folks could understand. We saw this as an opportunity to make things friendlier.

We believe the entire world is comprised of intelligent people who are just overwhelmed by unnecessarily complicated technology. Over the years, Teknosophy has simplified many complex computer installations and has satisfied hundreds of clients.

Unlike our competitors, our aim is not to patch your system up every few months. Our radical approach is to fix problems once and for all, keeping your technology maintenance-free and interruption-free. We strive to exceed your expectations at every turn.
