In January of 1986, my father Charlie Vongratana, started Microlab Computers in our family living room, custom building computers for friends, golf buddies and coworkers. Later, LEK Computer Systems was formed to provide high-end workstations and servers to business, local government and consumer sectors. We continue to customize, repair and upgrade computers for a very diverse clientele.
LEK Internet Services, which started in 1994, owes much of its success to the computer store’s reputation. LEK Internet was the first Internet Service Provider (ISP) in the Akron market and we pride our reputation on prompt, efficient and affordable customer service. LEK Internet continues to offer a data center and co-location facilities in Downtown Akron, Business Internet Services, web hosting and networking solutions.
My father passed away 9 years ago this year. The businesses he started with such heart, will have celebrated 30 years in 2016. My mom has been with him from the start and it’s time for her to enjoy her retirement in the garden, planting and cultivating fruits and vegetables full time to donate to charity. My mom has vetted several buyers over the last year and we found the perfect fit who she trusts will continue to care about the customer, just like my parents have.
I would like to share with some very exciting news! This week, we finalized the sale of LEK to Technology Management Solutions (TMS). TMS has been in business in Akron for the last 16 years and is dedicated to providing businesses with first-class IT services and support, ranging from server installs to network design and implementation to PC troubleshooting and support. Owner, Garrett Hoffert, has the same value system and business etiquette as my father, and has the dream and drive to make TMS, the #1 choice in the industry.
Together, we can confidently offer you, a one stop shop, full service technology management company for all your computer needs. There are certainly overlaps in what services we both provide, however the WIN WIN for you, our customers, are the other services that TMS specializes in, such as in Voice Over IP, Remote back up Services, and IT Consulting Services to name a few.
In addition, as a customer of LEK, you were serviced by our trusted technicians over the years, Chris and/or Luke, and more recently Mike and Steve. With the new TMS, we are tripling the manpower to serve you. In many cases, with remote access to your computer from our offices, we will also be more economical for you.. By consolidating all your IT services with us, we are confident that can save you a lot of headache and a lot of money.
I am thrilled to remain on staff, through the transition and beyond to ensure that you will experience a seamless upgrade to the services that TMS has to offer. I hope you will continue to call on us for all your computer needs, whether it is a new computer, upgrades, repair, virus removals or just plain maintenance. Always consider us for internet, webhosting, or co-location services. Most importantly, when you call us, you will get US!
