What Our Clients Say
Coleman Technologies Help South Surrey Jeweller With Complete Technology Solution
José & Co. Custom Jewellers is a boutique company based out of South Surrey, British Columbia, devoted to the production and sale of beautiful pieces of jewellery. They were looking for something more than just a technology company that would fix their computers after they’d already suffered another break down. They were tired of wasting money struggling to get their work done with systems that just weren’t keeping up with their needs. They needed help, but they didn’t want just anyone – they wanted IT support that would be focused on their unique needs, as well as helping guide them into the future.
That’s when they turned to Coleman Technologies.
As a custom jewellery boutique, José & Co. utilize their information technology as part of the foundation for their sales and communications. It’s not just about keeping records or making invoices – it’s about being able to connect to existing clients and prospective customers with speed and ease. It’s about being able to rest easy knowing that important files, emails, contacts, and calendars are kept secure from data loss or disaster. It’s about marketing and making the right impression with everyone that sends an email, calls, or comes in the shop.
The Situation: Looking for IT Support That Can Be Trusted
José Latchinian, the CEO of José & Co., said that he’d grown tired of IT support that wasn’t focused on the needs of his business. “As a designer, I need to devote my time and energy on something productive for me. I need someone that will guide me through resolving the issue, not speaking to me in technical language – someone that will communicate in layman’s terms. And if there’s an issue, I can communicate in layman’s terms that he understands too.”
He said that in the past, he’d dealt with IT companies that “danced around issues.” He didn’t want condescending technobabble – he wanted someone he could trust to provide leadership and straightforward service that he could rely upon.
The Resolution: An IT Company That Focuses on Proactive Solutions & Completely Managed and Customized Services
Coleman Technologies was recommended to José by a realtor friend, and right from the get-go, it was obvious that we were a good fit. “Darren Coleman, CEO of Coleman Technologies is very easy to communicate with,” said José. “I like that!. When I met with him, he was very straightforward. He used totally clear and concise language with no tone of condescension.”
We got to work right away, not only on addressing the existing performance and reliability issues of José’s systems, but also on planning for the future of his IT investments.
Some of the services we immediately began providing for José & Co. include:
– Remote Monitoring and Management – Keeping the company’s systems watched over 24/7 in order to proactively deal with IT issues as they arise and maintain a high standard of 99% uptime.
– Managed Anti-Virus – Safeguarding the company’s email and networks with state-of-the-art anti-virus software, so any form of malware is prevented from attacking their systems.
-Onsite & Offsite Backups – Not only providing onsite processes and products to safely backup the company’s important records and systems, but also securing them in an offsite data centre in case any disaster should ever befall their onsite equipment.
– Computer & Network Management – Regular maintenance, upgrades, and analysis of the company’s IT assets, in order to make sure everything is performing at its best and giving the best return on investment.
Together, we’re focused on the future. “They don’t turn around and make it just good enough for 6 months or a year,” said José. “It’s good for 5 years, and, if you want, you could change it anytime over the 5 year period.”
So what’s next for José and Co.’s relationship with Coleman Technologies? “I’d like to transfer everything over to them,” said José. “Get all of my IT needs under one roof. They have a proven track record – everyone has spoken very highly of them, and had nothing but praise.”

Coleman Technologies Deploys a Solid IT Infrastructure for Leading BC Real Estate Firm
REMI Realty is a full-service real estate and property management company with offices in Langley B.C. and North Vancouver. The team of real estate experts at REMI Realty work daily to provide leading rental and property management services to a variety of commercial and residential clients. Technology plays a huge role in the firm’s ability to sufficiently manage their large roster of properties and provide a full, professional level of service to all clients. Their day-to-day operations are dependent on efficient and reliable technology with minimal downtime. Furthermore, REMI Realty requires secure file sharing and data access for their employees in both offices, even when they’re home or on the road, and after business hours in case of an emergency.
When looking for a reliable managed IT service provider, the REMI Realty team wanted a partner who could help support their business operations to drive productivity and growth. They also wanted someone local who could be readily available with strategic solutions and informed planning. After interviewing a few local providers, REMI Realty made the decision to partner with Coleman Technologies.
“We liked the fact Coleman Technologies understands what we do, is located nearby, and is an owner-operated company,” says Parisa Tong from REMI Realty. “We chose Coleman because we were confident that we would be taken care of.”
The Coleman Approach: Optimize IT Infrastructure to Better Support Business Demands
As soon as Coleman Technologies came on board, their team did a complete review of REMI Realty’s IT infrastructure, and determined what areas needed improvement and what solutions needed to be deployed. It didn’t take long before the Coleman team had a fail-proof plan to keep REMI Realty even more productive, secure and profitable through strategic technology deployments.
Coleman Technologies helped to implement the following IT solutions for REMI Realty:
Connectivity between the two REMI Realty offices so their staff can securely access data on their server from wherever they are. Staff members now have seamless communication capabilities and are connected using a VPN (SSL VPN though DELL Sonic Wall), Terminal Services, and Hosted Exchange.
A brand-new backup system. The Datto backup solution that Coleman deployed provides reliable and secure Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery tools for REMI Realty. Thanks to this new system, the entire REMI system can be virtualized in the cloud within minutes, even in the case of data breach or disaster.
Sonicwall Firewall and Managed Antivirus Solution to ensure ongoing security of their data, and to prevent malware intrusions. This way, hackers are stopped in their tracks before damage can be done or data can be stolen.
The Outcome: An Ongoing IT Partnership that Makes Focusing on Business a Breeze
Since partnering with Coleman Technologies, REMI Realty has experienced the benefit of a fully-managed approach to IT service and support. The staff in both of their offices are extremely pleased with the services Coleman provides.
The proactive solutions that Coleman Technologies have provided allow the REMI Realty IT infrastructure to remain up and running – no matter what. Uninterrupted access to their data on-site, in transit and in the cloud, has made all the difference for REMI Realty in their effort to provide seamless property management services to clients of all kinds.
“We’ve worked with other IT companies in the past,” says Tong. “We find Coleman Technologies is far more professional than past providers. We highly recommend them due to their prompt and professional services!”

When we call we get a response within minutes
Having our IT services managed by Coleman Technologies has given us the ability to keep our computers up and running and BACKED UP REGULARLY. The only other service we used was Microsoft and it was difficult to get help when we needed it. Not so with Coleman. When we call we get a response within minutes. They’re definitely worth a try, as every IT department has different needs.
The most advantageous reason in my experience to choose Coleman Technologies is the extensive experience the people and firm have of solving both everyday ‘mundane’ problems, and the most complicated problems that marketing people face while communicating via electronic technology. If you can keep realtors happy and functioning, you will seem genius to normal people!

A virus came in via an attachment and we ended up sending out spam email to our patients. Coleman Technologies was quick to call me when the problem was realized, did immediate problem solving, and re-arranged their schedule to come in and do a full fix of the problem.
One word – RELIABILITY
One word – RELIABILITY. We have used Coleman Technologies for years, and no one else. They are the best!
Give them a shot. You won’t be disappointed
Coleman Technologies provides quick, reliable service that you can count on. They offer great product knowledge and friendly service. Give them a shot. You won’t be disappointed.
You’ll sleep better knowing that Coleman Technologies is part of your team
Knowing that the Coleman Technologies staff knows our needs and ensures that everything is up to date and running smoothly creates two equal benefits – less down time and less stress. Since adding Coleman Technologies to our team I can focus on other areas of the business. They collaborate with us to ensure our needs are covered and review our future needs, but never over sell us on purchasing equipment or services that we do not need. And most importantly, the staff are dependable. They always respond to our calls for assistance promptly and quickly assess if we can be assisted over the phone, or if one of the techs needs to come to our office. We are not left wondering when we can get help. You’ll sleep better knowing that Coleman Technologies is part of your team. They’re a professional, reliable firm that keeps up to date on technology and trends, and they focus on you the customer and your business to ensure you are informed on what could be beneficial to your business.

They have given us great, prompt support
Until Colman Technologies came along we didn’t realize what we didn’t have. They have given us great, prompt support. In our world, that is what it takes and we appreciate their services.
Working with them is a great way to offset that risk
Colman Technologies gives us peace of mind that someone “has our back” while we focus on doing what we do best in service to our own clients, as opposed to trying to stay up to date on tech issues in our “spare” time. I appreciate their ability to promptly respond to the occasional crisis so as to limit our downtime and get us back to doing productive work. Procrastination that leaves your business less than adequately protected can be costly in wasted time and resources, and could also potentially impact the reputation of your firm as well. Working with them is a great way to offset that risk.
We wouldn’t have anyone else work on our systems!
Having someone come in and help us manage our technical problems has been amazing! And we aren’t stuck on the phone trying to get a hold of support. We have great service to the office that is efficient, and they are in fixing the problem within a day or two! They provide great service and are friendly doing it! They also try to explain what is going on to us when there is a problem so we learn more about our systems, and can try and become somewhat self-sufficient in fixing the little things. They never expect us to understand, but they also never act like we can’t. These guys are awesome! They do superb work from the little fix-it’s with printers and error messages to setting up whole new systems. They are well versed in current technology and are always keeping the office updated as well. You never feel awkward around them when they come to work at your station and they always bring a positive attitude into the office. We wouldn’t have anyone else work on our systems!
We have never had to worry about not having our system on full operation
We have never had to worry about not having our system on full operation. My life before was all about chasing computer viruses and updating security systems, but now I just show up at the office and never have to think about my computer not working. Darren is very available to troubleshoot on weekends and evenings, which is great.
We are extremely happy with the service we have received from Darren Coleman and his team. They are very quick to respond to problems, and we have yet to encounter an IT issue that they were not able to promptly resolve at a reasonable cost. Highly recommended.
We found Coleman Technologies’ offering to be perfect for small businesses.

We have referred your services to many of our clients and have received a very positive feedback.
The biggest benefit for us has been their expertise, timeliness of service, hands-on ownership, and concern for the problems and issues. Absolutely use Coleman Technologies as they are one company that will be there when you need them most, and are efficient and provide immediate assistance.
Coleman Technologies response time is VERY good, and we greatly appreciate that.
I love not having to deal with the frustration of trying to become IT experts, or take time away from doing what we do best to sort out IT issues. Their response time is VERY good, and we greatly appreciate that. They also explain things in terms we can understand and give what we feel is honest advice on how best to approach our challenges. Feeling that we can trust our IT advisor is a big deal. Darren and his team are the ones you want to keep your IT issues stress free so you can go on with business.
Coleman Technologies offers quick, efficient and continued reliable service.
