When it came to his business idea, Robert got it from his previous experience working at a company. Before he started his company, Robert worked at a firm that specialized in Anti Malware. During his time at this firm, the company was having difficulty in getting their software installed on a user’s machine. The company had a trial software policy where if users were happy using the software, they were allowed to buy it after 15 days for free. In 2009, the company had difficulty getting the anti malware software installed. In an effort to resolve this, the company would use a phone number for people to call and talk about their own difficulties downloading the software. Through conversations, the company realized that malware has certain software that blocks the installation of certain software. Therefore, the company used technical support personnel to help users remotely. This led to Robert coming up with an idea to provide technical services for computer users who are experiencing difficulty with technical issues.
