When you just want IT to work!

There are a lot of computer shops out there that you can call up to fix an issue or install a piece of equipment. They might be able to get you out of crisis mode, but they aren’t looking at the full picture.

At Think Tank NTG, we understand business. We consult. We provide solutions to solve everyday challenges. We just happen to fix computers as well.

We believe (and have proven) that if you proactively manage technology, run maintenance religiously, and monitor a business network, everyday issues and downtime will be greatly reduced.

This is what makes us different than your typical tech support company. Sure, we can fix computer issues when you have them, but our specialty is preventing them in the first place.

      What Our Clients Say

      • They actually do what they say they are going to do - and they do it well
        Momence
        Van Drunen Farm

        I use Think Tank for larger projects that I need help with or when I need a higher level of expertise. Think Tank's sales staff is responsive and courteous and their engineers are always knowledgeable and friendly. I think one of the best things about working with Think Tank is that they actually do what they say they are going to do - and they do it well.

      • Their attention to detail and follow up is very impressive.
        Lighthouse Academies

        We have relied on Think Tank support for all of our locations in Wisconsin, Illinois, Arkansas, New York ,Massachusetts, Washington and Indiana. Their engineering staff is outstanding and have been willing and able to accommodate our unique situations as they arise without hesitation and Think Tank’s sales staff have supported me as if I were their only client. Their attention to detail and follow up is very impressive.

      • Qualities that are hard to find
        Waulkegan
        NOSCO, Inc.

        I can't think of any one experience, but I can say that we enjoy working with you Keith and your team. You are honest, responsive and truly care - qualities that are hard to find.

      • They helped us become HIPAA Compliant
        Office of Michael Min, DDS

        Think Tank NTG did an outstanding job assessing and informing our dental practice on how we would score in the case of a HIPAA compliance audit by DHHS.  By spending time looking at our office and our computers, they were able to assess practices that were already in place and made suggestions on what needed to be changed in order to become compliant.  They looked at staff log-ins and password issues, workstation and server security, our wireless network, email service, antivirus updates, and backups, to name a few.  We were scored on our practices and given a report with issues of concerns and a recommendation on how to fix each issue.  The best part was that they provided us with the written Policies and Procedures needed to update our policy manual.  Think Tank NTG provided us a binder with a very detailed report, and a team of technicians sat down with us to go over the results.  Their professionalism in explaining their concerns and how to resolve those concerns were beyond our expectations. 

      • The journey to choose Think Tank and the Ruckus product could not have been smoother
        Carroll Consolidated School Corp.

        Carroll Consolidated School Corporation was looking to upgrade its wireless infrastructure and the journey to choose Think Tank and the Ruckus product could not have been smoother. From the initial Ruckus product briefing, through the quoting process, through the wiring and product installation, to the configuration and training, Think Tank met every need I had. The project was completed on time and to my complete satisfaction. I would definitely recommend Think Tank for future projects.

      • Excellent customer service
        Diocese of Gary

        Our organization has been a client of Think Tank for over 15 years. Throughout the years Think Tank has provided excellent customer service and has proven to be very professional and knowledgeable in what they do. Being a one person IT department, they have been a very reliable resource for me.

      • I have no idea how we ever lived without it
        Friona ISD

        We subscribed to ThinkHelpDesk in October of 2012 and I have no idea how we ever lived without it.  Our team has become much more productive and our response times have lowered enormously.  I’m sure that we quickly recovered the money spent on the service just in labor times alone.  The teachers and staff also love it because now they are informed of the progress of their ticket every step of the way. Also, the team at ThinkHelpDesk is always available to help when we have problems.  If they weren't able to help immediately, their response time has always been just a couple of hours at most.  Using ThinkHelpDesk for our Technology, Maintenance, Custodial and Transportation work orders is absolutely the best program we have implemented this year.

      • An IT Company that is easy to work with
        LaPorte Fire Department

        For years we have struggled to find continuity with our IT needs.  It wasn’t until we hired Think Tank to update our systems and install a new server did we realize how easy it could be to work with an IT company.  Anthony Zorica explained every step of the process (in terms we could understand) and was available 24/7 to provide support.  We couldn’t be happier with Think Tank and all their personnel, so much so that we have just entered into a Managed Service Agreement for them to handle all of our IT needs.

      Think Tank NTG and Citrix Make Mobile Access Secure and Simple

      Increasingly, security concerns are putting companies between a rock and a hard place – having to choose whether to limit mobile access to company data on corporate or personal devices (which makes it harder for people to work at maximum productivity) or to give employees free rein to use their own devices (which makes it harder to secure sensitive data).

      And don’t get employees started on the usability challenges that mobility can create. It’s hard to achieve the productivity that mobility offers when they have to use different interfaces and credentials for different devices – and even then might not be able to access all the corporate resources they need.

      Fortunately, Think Tank NTG provides app and desktop virtualization solutions powered by Citrix that eliminate these challenges. By virtualizing apps and desktops, employees can work remotely, stay productive, and easily use the devices they prefer – from company laptops to personal tablets or smartphones – for mobile access over any type of network connection. They also receive the same consistent experience across all devices. And you can rest assured that business-critical information is safe because secure access to both data and apps is built in.

      To learn more about all the benefits of app and desktop virtualization solutions from Think Tank NTG and Citrix, visit www.SolveITwithCitrix.com/infographic/ThinkTank where you can access a library of resources including whitepapers and videos. Or give us a call at 800.501.DATA

      Tip of the Week: 10 Google Easter Eggs - Because the Internet Isn’t Distracting Enough

      Of course, we’re not talking about the colored eggs hidden in the yard every spring. No, we’re referring to the fun surprises Google has added to their search engine. By entering a specific search query into Google.com, you’ll encounter a Google Easter egg. Over the years, Google’s hidden a few dozen Easter eggs. Here’s how to access Think Tank NTG’s 10 favorite eggs!

      Type “Atari breakout” and click Images
      This will turn all of the searchable images into a playable game of the classic video game Super Breakout. Be sure to turn on your speakers to enjoy the nostalgic sound effects.

      Type “Askew
      This clever Easter egg will tilt your search results just enough to be noticeable. Don’t worry, after you leave the page your screen will be back to normal.

      Type “Festivus
      “Festivus for the rest of us!” Festivus is a made up holiday originating from the television show Seinfeld. By searching for “Festivus,” you’ll find out exactly what the holiday is all about, while being treated to a traditional Festivus pole located on the left side of your screen.

      Type “Google in 1998
      Computer users with fond memories of the 90s will appreciate this one. This Easter egg will provide you with a fascinating glimpse of what Google looked like--almost 20 years ago!

      Type “Zerg rush
      Players of the popular video game StarCraft and “n00bs” alike will appreciate this egg. Essentially, this search causes Google’s letters to attack the search results, and the only way you can stop them is to frantically click each one until they disappear. However, characteristic of the game’s Zerg rush, doing so will only cause more Zerg-like letters to appear, until you’re overwhelmed and your precious search results are destroyed. Also, notice the handy-dandy score counter on the right side.

      Type “flip a coin,” or “roll a die
      Google will display an animated die or coin that will provide a random result with each search. If you don’t have an actual coin or die on you, this is a great alternative.

      Type “[actor’s name] Bacon Number
      The Bacon number here relates to the classic game “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon,” not the sweet meat. In the game, you’re supposed to figure out how many films separate an actor from another movie with Kevin Bacon in it. Although, we think that automating the game like this kind of takes the fun out of it.

      Type “fun facts
      Feeling curious? This egg will provide you with a random fact card. As a bonus, this is an easy way to play a game of trivia with your friends.

      Type “The answer to the ultimate question of life the universe and everything” (no punctuation)
      Fans of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy will of course know the answer to this.

      Type “Google Pacman
      In yet another nod to video games, Google made a playable game of Pac-Man as a doodle in 2010 to celebrate the game’s 30th anniversary--a doodle responsible for costing the US economy $120 million in lost productivity, or 5 million wasted work hours, upon its release. Thankfully, Google decided to keep the game up. Good news for bored office workers, not so much for the economy.

      These are our top 10 favorite Google Easter eggs, there are actually many more to be found. Can you think of one or two eggs that we didn’t go over? Share them with us in the comments!

      Bonus egg: “Do a barrel roll!”
