Magnum Computers Inc. has changed with the industry since our incorporation back in 1987. We did a lot of custom software development in dBase and then FoxBASE and FoxPro and other languages and platforms.
We built loads of custom white box PCs and servers that were more powerful, less expensive and a better fit for our customers than the off-the-shelf or big name products.
We became Microsoft Solution Providers and expert in the Windows and Office family of products, including the Serve products. In fact, Dan led the Windows NT SIG and became a Microsoft Server MVP for 9 years. He became the Great Lakes Geek and began writing tech columns that have been published all over the world. He coined the term Entreprenerd for his 12 year Inside Business tech column.
Magnum helped set up systems and networks, did troubleshooting on minor through major problems and always gave our customers the best solution for their needs and budget. We were the IT department for many businesses.
As the industry grew, some of our products and services no longer generated the margins we needed to remain profitable with the. Hardware prices plummeted and the boxes became a commodity. Offshore talent was a lot less expensive than our programmers.
So we stopped looking for new businesses to be their IT department. We still can provide better desktop (and laptop and server and…) PCs better than what you can get other places. Check out our on-line store as proof.
But we transitioned into the on-line world and that's where most of our work is today.
