my name is Fred Harlan, I'm a Business Improvement Specialist at Cobb Technologies. I’ve been helping folks here in Tidewater since 2006 with a lot of different office technology needs: printing, imaging, information systems, document management systems, managed IT services, production print, wide format engineering devices, as well as voice over IP. It’s really the gamut of business services, and I always like to say “if it has a power button, we help folks with it.”
So, having been in the industry and having been with Cobb for so long, I’m able to bring a certain longevity to the industry that isn’t typical. Most folks survive a couple of years doing this, so it’s given me just a wealth of knowledge and experience - there are not many scenarios I haven’t seen over the years -of business applications, workflows- ways to really improve folks’ businesses that provide meaningful change.
I’ve been a member of the Cape Hatteras Anglers Club for well over 10 years and I just love surf fishing and being on the beach. I also fish here locally quite a bit.
Also, I spend a lot of time with the kids. I’ve got a couple of daughters and they just absolutely keep us busy. Every chance we get we spend time in the yard playing outside, and we play a lot of board games - these are some things that we do as often as we can.
Now that you know a little bit about me and what I do, I’d love to learn a little bit more about you and what you do in your business. Thanks so much!
