Electronics Depot working to bring Grand Bahama and The Bahamas into the 21st century in their technological needs
Freeport News Reporter
A new electronics company is now on the scene with the view to bring Grand Bahama and the rest of The Bahamas into the 21st century in their technological needs.
Partners Orville "Jeff" Forbes and Rashid Johnson owners of Electronics Depot, are both engineers and both feel that most of the computers sold on the island are already old by the time they are bought locally. Their view is to bring those computers up to date and to also sell new updated computers complete with wireless network support.
The two are also offering security surveillance support, computer maintenance, hard drive recovery and repair, date recovery and home audio installation. In the inventory they have laptops/desktops, computer parts, surveillance/security equipment, wireless routers, wireless computer accessories, computer audio, power surge protection, cellular phone accessories and movies, music and more.
What makes this business outstanding, they said, is the fact that they are engineers and always on call.
Forbes has a degree in soft engineering and Johnson is a civil engineer.
At the store, located in the SavoyBuilding, they say they do not believe in sending technicians but actual engineers to troubleshoot and assist persons with technical problems.
They are also online giving some troubleshooting ideas via their website if the questions are for smaller items.
Electronics Depot they said prides itself on offering premium services and the best prices to its valued customers. They promised to give really competitive prices for all their goods and services.
Their mission they said, is to educate the public to make correct financial decisions for their current and future technological requirements.
Together with Rengin Johnson, the two noted that they got started after it was discovered that the computer network set up for Johnson's law firm was supposed to be wireless but was at the time wired.
The younger Johnson said that when he further checked out the "new" set of computers his mother had bought he discovered that they were already three years old, so he and his partners decided to research other businesses and found the same thing. This is when they set out to assist in upgrading the equipment and software to make most homes and businesses technologically advanced.
With this they said that their motto is really service above self as they looked at the present pricing offered and realized that they could give better prices for a number of the items and better tech support through their business.
