Who's behind Composure?

Hi, my name is Stuart Paulin.  I have over 23 years' experience in IT technical work with the last 15 years as a manager and technical lead at an engineering consultancy.  My work has involved many IT specialities including servers, networks, workstations, phones, writing software and also more importantly talking with and serving people, assisting, training and solving problems.  Due to that company selling to an international corporation I decided 'now is the hour' to follow my passion for all kinds of technology and for helping people.  I want to help business do I.T. well to enable business to do well, whether it is to improve productivity and profitability or minimise frustrations and risk; keeping the troops happy or creating the next big or little, app.

My wife and family have called Whanganui home for more than 10 years now and we love it.  The friendly people,  the community spirit, the events, the arts and the beauty.  We are committed to being part of and building a positive future here, oh and to have fun doing it too!

Whether it is for a steer in the right direction, peer review, regular maintenance or specific project I look forward to meeting you soon.

Rates

Computers and ambiguity lead to tears. The same can be said about people and unspoken 'pretend agreements'. My normal rates are:


Free - Initial visit, review or project scoping & quoting is free, no obligation.*


$100 / hour - Casual engagement, urgent, on call.


$75 / hour - 4+ hour engagements, regular commitments and project work.


By Negotiation - extended engagements & contracts.


* I will advise verbally or in writing when work is chargeable.

Please note:
Charged time may include travel time. Additional travel and disbursement expenses may be passed on.

The cost of hardware and software procured on your behalf will be passed on to you including freight.

I'm about solutions fit for purpose and budget, trying to avoid 'lemons' and recommending efficiencies from common, widely deployed reliable gear. Future proofed is only proven by knowing the future, let's find a sensible path for your business.

Is there a way to do this better?  Composure in I.T. is about finding more effective ways of doing things, reducing stress, increasing accuracy, being more productive and profitable.

From smart watches, phones, tablets, laptops to cloud, when it works it's great but what about when it's not?  From natural disasters, accidents, incidents to 'bad guys', composed  I.T. is about reducing risk and being prepared.

Sometimes it is just about getting the job done, working through the paperwork, minimising costs, managing subbies to get that network cable or service or website or system working.  If I can help getting that never never job off your plate and off your mind, give me call.

Great businesses are built on solid relationships which require trust- I'd love to start building that today. My promise is no agenda or sales push, to listen, clarify, agree and act.
