Hello, my name is Brad Barton. In 1996 I pioneered online software sales when I started Speedy Software, which was basically an early version of an e-commerce web site. This online software portal grew to include computer hardware and local on site service, as well as early versions of online certification training. With an expanded business plan, Speedy Software became My Tech Guru in August of 2001. Somewhere around the middle of 2002, My Tech Guru began to specialize in office printers, rather than networks, servers, and workstations. I later sold SpeedySoftware.com in 2004.

 

Following the crash of the dot coms, and the decline of the tech industry as a whole, I saw a need for affordable, high quality technical services. I created and implemented my own set of standards, and developed cutting-edge technical training that allowed for rapid learning and technical competency that could literally be measured in days. In 2004 I packaged our training developments and began providing cost effective training to businesses, educational institutions, government facilities, and individual technicians.

 

PrinterCoach.com is an extension of My Tech Guru in that I have taken years worth of printer repair information, and the best training options, and located it all at the same place. The printer repair training options will come down from the MyTechGuru.com web site in 2010, and PrinterCoach.com will become the specialized source for printer repair training, technical tips and techniques, and information. PrinterCoach.com contains only information relevant to printers and technical printer training. It is specialized. I have created PrinterCoach.com as a blog, so that I can regularly post information, and added a members area that is essentially a treasure trove of the information that My Tech Guru has accumulated over the years. The members area currently includes over a years worth of weekly installments, as of the time of this writing. Each installment contains information that is generally not commonly known, not covered well in service manuals, or features a complex troubleshooting or repair scenario that might drive you crazy trying to sort through if you did not have the information. In short, PrinterCoach.com is an extension to any training you decide to purchase, or any level of skill that you currently have.

My Tech Guru has provided outsourced technical services for a variety of clients such as Verizon, Sprint, Siemens, Toshiba, Fujitsu, The Social Security Administration, Office Depot, and global service providers such as Logical Maintenance Solutions, and Image One to name a few.

 

During the 1980’s and early 90’s I was primarily working in sales management and providing sales training for corporate America. During that time, I trained thousands of sales people from coast to coast.
