Ducktoes is probably the best computer repair shop in Calgary. The manager who runs it so well is an honest, gregarious, warm-hearted gentleman (with the emphasis on gentle) who also has formidable tech skills.
The other techs are a mixture of electronics artists and hardware/software engineers who can fix even motherboards that have been shorted-out from spills and who can remove viruses without reformatting (my specialty). They are also friendly, kind, and good with people. Best techs bar none.
The SEO team is a hard-working, dedicated, extremely skilled group of web designers and digital marketing experts. I can not believe how hard they work and how good they are at their jobs.
We fix computers quickly and expertly without a long queue, without any queue at all. We charge reasonable prices. We repair problems with motherboards, screens, keyboards, hard drive recovery, software issues, overheating that no one else in the city of Calgary can fix. We are hard working and love our jobs.
Our SEO agency allows many companies to thrive and flourish, by getting them business and traffic they desperately needed before.
And our services come with reasonable prices.
But we are also a charity. I have hired autistic guys who at first couldn’t look people in the eye or carry on a conversation with anyone never mind clients or customers, who after several years of working within the positive, wholesome and inclusive environment of Ducktoes, transform into social, skilled, extremely talented techs that go on to better jobs (they should work for NASA).
Others have recovered from years of hopeless poverty, unemployment, or welfare, addiction issues, and underemployment.
You would never know it. They are now happy and positive employees who run the computer repair shop like a well-oiled machine. They love their work. We make all kinds of people welcome in our shop.
Not all come to Ducktoes as troubled individuals, but all grow. Especially myself. I’ve learned that I don’t have all the answers and learn from other’s strengths and ideas. I’m become more confident and good at sales. I’ve learned to trust employees to give them the freedom they need to work their best. I’ve created an easy going workplace where people have fun while they work.
I give training and second chances galore. The result? My staff is totally wonderful through and through.
I have helped almost everyone financially…I help them buy their cars, groceries or insurance, take care of their parents, give advances, give whatever to whatever crisis they are in.
I have not made much money, so we are really a non-profit, and sometimes I struggle to stay afloat.
But the enrichment I get from watching people find and unfold their true potential and goodness and work ethic….is immeasurable.
