On-site, on-demand tech support startup Loyal Techs launches in Worcester
Loyal Techs, an on-demand support service, has launched, aiming to revolutionize the way consumers receive on-site and remote technical support.
With the click of a button, Worcester residents can book affordable and expert tech support for Windows, macOS, Android, and iOS. It’s a simple, inexpensive and convenient option for troubleshooting and fixing tech issues without booking a pushed-out appointment with a hefty price tag.
“Our only focus is our awesome customers and the services we provide,” says Anthony Inguaggiato, CEO of Loyal Techs. “Our goal is to provide the best tech support anyone has ever experienced. We want to be the only tech support option you think of for on-demand high-quality support.”
Users of the Loyal Techs website and mobile app can easily navigate to the booking screen where they will fill out a form to describe the problem, select the device, and select the device’s operating system or firmware. The last step is to simply press “Call” to instantly connect with a Loyal Tech who will typically arrive in 2 hours or less depending on the plan chosen. A special $9.99 plan, the Diagnostic Call Out, is perfect for quick and general tech support issues that need on-site or remote attention.
Currently, the Loyal Techs service is only available in Worcester, but is expanding to more cities soon. Loyal Techs is also looking for experienced information technology specialists to provide tech support for clients.
