Ohio Health Benefits
Do you have an employee about to retire, retiring within the next year, or just thinking about retiring? I’m offering free, no-obligation one-on-one Medicare sessions for chamber members, their employees, and their referrals. Medicare and everything associated with it can be confusing and overwhelming. I thoroughly explain the Medicare program in general, discuss the benefit options the individual is entitled to, make recommendations based on that person’s specific situation, and answer their questions. I call them “Peace of Mind” sessions because they allow people to make informed, confident, and stress-free Medicare benefit decisions for themselves. If you would like to learn more, please call Rick Lohr at (330) 633-7713.
You rely on your computer to run your business, just like you rely on your car to get you from ‘A to B’ – so why shouldn’t you have a “Check Engine Light” for your computer? ITworks can provide you a Check Engine Light for peace of mind, and help you when things go wrong. Just like a Check Engine Light for a car, we’ll know exactly what the problem is and how to fix it, just by seeing the error code. Now that we’ve got you interested, here’s the best part: while you’re in a panic because your systems are down, we’ll already be familiar with your network, allowing us to confidently know where everything is located, how it’s configured, and what exactly needs to be done. The “Check Engine Light” service, freeIT, is free! All you would ever have to pay for is our labor when and if you ask us for help. For the month of June we are waiving our setup fee (normally $99) for freeIT. Space in the freeIT program is limited as we don’t want to grow the new service too quickly. Call us at (330) 247-2471 to get signed up today before you’re too late!

Electronic Merchant Services
In the world of payment processing, security is paramount. I’m sure you’ve seen the news lately, it seems you can’t go more than a few weeks without hearing about another big data breach where customer’s credit card info has been compromised. To combat this, the Payment Card Industry, or PCI for short, has set into place a set of regulations and standards designed to maximize security and protect both customers and merchants alike. Failure to become compliant doesn’t just put your customers at risk, it endangers your business. The fees associated with a breach are staggering and often times leave merchants with no other choice than to shut their doors permanently. Call Adrien Coluccio today to learn more about your business’ compliance: 216.287.0081 OR http://land.emscorporate.com/CuyahogaFalls/
