Small Tree Communications, a leading provider of state-of-the-art networking solutions, recently came to the aide of a small business owner. Lightning may have been responsible for temporarily slowing down productivity for a small Montana ad agency, but lightning struck again when the firm‘s owner called Small Tree Communications for assistance.
A power surge from a major storm recently took out the Ethernet component of Cooper Creative Advertising (and design) owner Barbara Scheppele‘s Mac G5. Scheppele says, “I thought replacing it would be simple...just add a new card and go. I was wrong. I spent three days looking for help and was convinced that I would have to buy a new G5. However, I finally found what I needed when I visited Small Tree‘s website. I called and spoke directly with someone in tech support, who was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Small Tree had the ideal solution, the PXG1. It was PERFECT.”
The high performance and reliability of the PXG1 Gigabit Ethernet card enables users to expand their network connectivity and supports jumbo frames by allowing higher data transfer rates. The PXG1 delivers an immediate performance increase on large transfers when connecting to other network devices that support jumbo frames. The PXG1 also increases connectivity to more networks.
“Small Tree Communications prides itself on customer satisfaction and cost-effective solutions,” stated Corky Seeber, president of Small Tree Communications. “There are plenty of small business owners like Barbara who don‘t know what easy and affordable solutions are available. Instead of purchasing a new G5 for more than $2,000, Barbara was up and running in no time with a $179 PXG1 card from Small Tree.”
Scheppele said Small Tree helped keep her business moving. “In the type of work I‘m in, I can‘t afford to be without my computer. The cost of the down time would have been astronomical for me. Small Tree saved my sanity.”
