WIth The Computing Center joining with Synergy IT Solutions, we are able to offer all the same products and services that we've offered for the last 43+ years AND leverage Synergy's size and 50+ years of experience working with clients of all sizes, but in particular larger clients. This is an opportunity for us to showcase some of the enhanced technologies and solutions that we now can offer together.
The Hybrid Office is officially "a thing". Many clients had it before - people who could work or access company systems from home or while "on the road". In 2020, it became evident that people working remotely was hugely important, but as we've moved into 2021, company and organization employees being able to do both, essentially on demand, became table stakes - something that is is a requirement - day in and day out. Synergy's "Technology Needs for the Now Normal" encapsulates what we are all trying to accomplish. See the link below to receive this important guide.

After 43+ years from our founding of The Computing Center, we are thrilled to announce that The Computing Center has been acquired by Synergy IT Solutions of Buffalo, NY.
For Mary Stazi and Larry Baum the acquisition provides continuity and enhancement of the products and services for all our clients.
For our employees, they will become owners of the combined company through Synergy's 100% employee owned ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan). This will allow all employees to share in the upside of the company's performance.
Mary Stazi will join the executive management team of the combined company: "I'm very excited to take on this new role that will allow us to continue to serve our many Ithaca and Central New York clients while expanding what Computing Center and Synergy will be able to offer clients throughout our region and Western NY".
Larry Baum will be retiring from The Computing Center, but will still be very active in the community: "While I'm stepping down from direct roles with The Computing Center, I'll continue being involved in championing existing businesses, startups, and not-for-profit organizations in our wonderful community. Over the years, I learned that our business thrives when everyone else does. That all will continue."
Mary, Larry and the entire staff want to thank every one of our clients all for your business and trust in The Computing Center since 1978. Here's to the future where our locally based employees can leverage the entire Synergy ecosystem to provide the best in technology products and services to all.
Fraud and scams delivered via spam email. Just when we thought this type of fraudulent email spam might be easing and our anti-spam and anti-malware software providers have tuned their algorithms "just right", we received two more just this week! Ugh.
Usually, we don't even read them, but the last name of the sender caught my eye: GADDAFI in all caps. As in Lybia's deceased strongman - Colonel Gaddafi. Couldn't be, but I was curious (yes curiosity can get you into all kinds of cybersecurity hell, but I took some safety precausions). Turns out the email itself was clean, but the intent was not! Here's the first couple paragraphs of the email:
