Jason prefers people over technology, but only slightly. In his personal time, he enjoys downhill skiing, competitive sailing and also martial arts, so pay your bills on time! He loves finding creative ways of solving problems through the application of modern technology. In 2003 he co-founded MobileTek Consulting, which evolved into A+ Computers & Services. He also co-founded Megabase Solutions in 2012 with the goal of making Canadian small businesses more efficient.
Derek joined the A+ team in 2013. He loves cars, which is especially fortunate for him because he gets to spend plenty of time driving between client appointments. We find that he is very popular during emergencies and is not above the occasional bribe.
Client and Vendor Relations
Matt joined the A+ team in 2010, shortly after receiving his diploma in Sales and Marketing from Red River College. His dedication to client satisfaction is tremendous so we haven’t the heart to tell him that we stopped paying him last year. But we’re pretty sure that he’s still here because he really loves his job. He hates raw tomatoes, but we can overlook this, right?
Edmond graduated from CDI College in 2013 after performing his practicum at A+ Computers. He kept showing up at the office until, eventually, HR decided that he should have an expense account. Talk about persistence! In December of 2014 he began learning to play piano and he has impeccable taste in music. He loves pizza – who doesn’t, right? – but we recommend that you avoid feeding him after midnight.
And on the 8th day, He created technology. We’re pretty sure that Jeff had a doctor’s note for the morning but he’s been fixing peoples computers ever since. We are very fortunate he agreed to join our team in 2007. Jeff is the most senior of our technical staff and, as such, he’s entitled to open all of the new boxes – he takes this matter very seriously and insists that the term is, in fact, “R&D”. In more recent news, he’s become the bearer of the company stick and carrot – although we suspect the carrot may have perished when the fridge was left unplugged. Jeff also coaches his son’s minor hockey team because he’s allowed to use his outside voice.
Web & Database Engineer
John is head of the A+ Development Team and the chief architect of the Megabase project. He will admit that nothing is impossible... except when it's his turn to buy lunch. He enjoys swimming and eating but not at the same time.
Stan joined the A+ Development team at the beginning of 2015 after graduating at the top of his class at Robertson College. This is one guy we definitely want on our side – and it’s a good thing he uses his powers for good… well, mostly.
Web & Graphics Designer, Project Manager
Kris takes pride in helping our team look like a bunch of grownups. She joined the A+ Development Team in 2012. She is an award winning website and graphic designer with over fifteen years of industry experience in both print and web. Programmers and designers are like unstable elements – it’s best to store them separately and only mix with caution. Probably for this reason, Kris felt it safer to work from her home on Vancouver Island.

“These guys know computers! Service is prompt, efficient and personalized.”Dona Watts-Hutchings
“I discovered Jason and his company through a referral several years ago. He has helped me upgrade my computer to one of his machines, fixed our laptop from home, helped set me up with good antivirus protection, helped me figure out a problem that none of the techies at Manitoba Health could solve even though the problem was at their end, and is now setting me up with a new laptop. He and his employees are always helpful on the phone or in person, and the work is done quickly and given back problem free. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone!“Dr. Suzanne Stockman Headingley Chiropractic
“Customer service is outstanding and their dedication to their customers is superb!!! - Their technical staff is fully competent, fast and efficient. A+ Computers & Services provide quality products from: 'computers, computer peripherals, software, and other products' and will only sell you what you need.”Don Lewadny
"I started using A+ computers about 3 years ago. I used to purchase products from Dell, and while their on line service was ok, they would only service what I bought, or charge an enormous fee. I discovered MobileTek (now A+) and have not looked back and have not considered another service provider since. I have purchased 3 new computers and am looking at a 4th, as we’ll as higher efficiency printers. A+ has also networked my home office – everything is integrated, and backups run seamlessly. I can print documents while working on my laptop and watching TV. A+ service is excellent …. They response quickly and complete services faster than anyone I have previously used. I would and do recommend A+ for home, home office and small/medium sized businesses.”Murray Grant Master Key Business Solutions
"I have used A+ services for seven years and will continue to do so because they are very knowledgeable about the industry, are prompt and thorough, and greet you as a friend not "just a customer". It's a very personable company to deal with.”Ron Blicq RGI Learning
