Why Puget Systems is like my Favorite Coffee Shop

Written on May 12, 2017 by Brett Nordquist

If you enjoy good coffee and are traveling through the southwesternmost corner of Utah, you'll have to stop at Jazzy's. You'll find they make a great cup of coffee, but you won't find their website. They don't have one. No drive-thru either.

On Culture and Unspoken Rules

Written on May 9, 2017 by Jon Bach

We believe that computers should be a pleasure to purchase and own. They should get your work done, and not be a hindrance. How do we keep that experience mission as we grow?

Event Schedule For 2017

Written on January 17, 2017 by

In 2017, our goal is to get out there where our customers are to learn more about them, learn more about their workflow, and find out what more we can do to optimize our systems and experience to those exact needs. That is why we are working with many user groups this year and have a big tradeshow calendar lined up. Are there any events that we should attend that aren't on this list? Let us know!

A word from a Support Technician at Puget Systems

Written on May 10, 2016 by Samyntha Hubbard

Although our hope is that you will never have to call in to Support for assistance (we hope our machines operate at optimal performance out of the box and for many years without any hiccups) we realize that from time-to-time, you will need to reach out to us. Whether it is assistance with setting up or troubleshooting an issue with a newly purchased system or working to resolve issues with a system that has seen its share of years, we are more than happy to hear from you.

The Growing Puget Systems Community

Written on April 28, 2016 by Eric Brown

If you've been following us over the past few months you are probably well aware that we have been travelling quite a bit and have a lot of new projects going on. In fact, since the beginning of the year, we have traveled approximately 15,000 miles.. So what have we been up to?

What I Wish I Had Known Part 2

Written on December 29, 2015 by Brett Nordquist

A little over a year ago, I wrote an article titled, "What I Wish I Had Known" that included specific feedback customers shared with me shortly after taking delivery of a new Puget Systems computer. Since that time I've talked to hundreds, if not thousands of customers, who have passed along more feedback that might be valuable to those who are configuring or considering a new computer. With that in mind, here are a few more items our customers would change, if they could go back in time:

Small Business Singularity

Written on December 20, 2015 by Jon Bach

I'm going to coin this transformation as the "small business singularity." If you're a science fiction fan like me, you might already be familiar with the idea of a technology singularity. In a small business, this transformation happens when the founder is no longer the sole source of initiative in the business.

A Peek Behind the Curtain

Written on December 7, 2015 by Chris Stephens

I had the mission to write a blog post that conveyed how we keep the repeat business of so many of our customers. After writing several drafts, I realized that the post had already been written by our customers -- in the form of personal emails I receive on a daily basis. With their permission, I offer you two emails I have recently received. They do a very good job of summarizing why people keep coming back to Puget Systems.

Event Schedule For 2016

Written on October 21, 2015 by

As big as 2015 has been for us here at Puget Systems, we aren't looking back. We are looking at 2016 as an opportunity to build upon our success and get out there where our customers are to learn more about them, learn more about their workflow, and find out what more we can do to optimize our systems and experience to those exact needs. That is why we have a big tradeshow calendar lined up for this next year.

An update on us.

Written on September 13, 2015 by Chris Stephens

Sunday is my quiet day. Made more so today, by the fact that our kids (all four of them) went to my parent's house yesterday for an overnight visit. I set aside Sundays to be a relaxed, stress free day that allows me to recharge. Lately, here at Puget, I have been recommending that practice to everyone on our team. "Why now, in particular?" you may ask. It's been nuts.

Introduction to Account Management

Written on August 13, 2015 by Eric Brown

In the past year, we have been slowly expanding upon the service we provide here at Puget Systems for our rapidly growing business and government customers. Introducing: Account Management. This new service is designed to give your company an inside man here at Puget Systems and a single point of contact for any need your company might have when working with us.

We appreciate your feedback.

Written on July 17, 2015 by Chris Stephens

We focus on feedback because we are in a relationship with every single on of our customers. Like any good relationship, it requires both talking and listening. Can you think of a healthy relationship where one person does all the talking? Too many times companies invest huge amounts of resources on messaging -- manipulating, adding nuance or changes -- when it could come more naturally when you introduce listening into the organization.

All kinds of things come up during the build process. We check and double check. We tweak. We modify. We look for the perfect. Perfect builds take time and our standards are high. We want you to walk away feeling that every dollar you spent, every day you waited was absolutely worth it.

Summer Newsletter

Written on July 24, 2014 by

To the best of my knowledge, it's been at least six years since we've written about life behind-the-scenes here at Puget Systems. So we're going to kick off a whole new generation of newsletters - focused more on the people and less the technology - as we dive into this summer season of 2014. I hope you enjoy this little glimpse of what working at Puget Systems is really like, day to day.

What Our Customers Have to Say About Windows 8

Written on March 25, 2014 by Jon Bach

Windows 8 has been out for about a year and a half now, and it is common knowledge that Microsoft's newest operating system has received mixed reactions. The new start screen (I still have to stop myself from calling it Metro!) is a jolting departure from the user interface that Windows users have been accustomed to using since 1995. One unique thing we do here at Puget Systems, is we reach out to nearly all of our customers after they have had a chance to use their new PC. We ask them how it is working for them, and what we could have done better. We learn a LOT. So, what do our customers have to say about Windows 8, and what is Puget Systems doing to respond?

Like a Spoiler on a Honda Civic

Written on January 31, 2014 by Jon Bach

On my way in to work today, I was passed by a small blue Honda Civic. It raced and weaved through traffic, sporting a bolt-on spoiler, and an exhaut pipe that made it sound more like a go-cart than a legitimate driving machine. I allowed myself my moment of sarcstic thoughts. "Really? Your Honda Civic gets around with such great velocity that you need a spoiler to keep your rear axle firmly planted??" Maybe I'm just getting old, but I looked at that vehicle and I didn't see the style and power the installer may have intended. I saw immaturity and insecurity. This driver self-identified with performance and power. He didn't have the right tool for the job, so he bolted on the parts.
