My Digital Journey
Hello there, I’m Richard Price-Walker, Owner of Zintracom.
I trained in an early business programming language called “Cobol” way back in the late 1970’s. We used binary code entered into a massive computer using punched cardboard cards. After the course, that knowledge enabled me to visualise the possibilities of creating new digital systems to replace out-dated manual methods for the company that I was working for.
I became one of the computer implementation project team leaders for the computerisation programme. Initially we carried out system and end user testing of the software. This was followed by defining branch needs, installing equipment, setting up digital data communications and running a data input and computer operations site supporting 10 remote branches. Identifying roles and training modules for staff to use the new systems efficiently. Putting each branch live with full stock control, counting, labelling and locations, purchase controls, pricing for customers and operational support. There was daily contact with branch managers to interpret and action daily and monthly reports for branch efficiency.
As time went on, I became the local person to try and resolve technical problems with early desk top PC’s. In those days there was no internet connection, small memory, a floppy disk drive and a green or orange on black large VDU monitor.
My first PC (about 25 years ago) was a largish laptop with a screen that had orange letters on a black screen and was definitely “luggable” rather than easily portable! I thought it was fantastic at the time. How things have changed!
My interest in using computer equipment and data efficiently has continued. Over the last 17 years I’ve created and optimised websites for marketing my own business interests.
I’m sure that you too have invested money, time, effort and research into specifying and using PC’s both for personal and business use. It has been an interesting learning curve and as the systems change, innovation and creativity have been essential to keep up to date with ever faster moving technology. This is why I am pleased to be able to offer to take away some of your pain and to help streamline the digital marketing side of your business, that will allow you to concentrate on running it.
I’m sure, like me, that you or someone close to you, has a computer on a desk, a laptop, tablet or i-pad, an iphone or an Android smart phone, or a combination of two or more of these.
This is the current and future way that clients will find and communicate with your business through the expanding digital information network. It will be essential for you to stand out from the crowd in your marketplace, to maintain your share of business and we can help you to do this. Already junior schools are utilising tablets to interact in class and for homework, storing data and projects for sharing in “the cloud”.
My business knowledge and computing experience, along with our team of digital marketing specialists, can now offer the full range of boutique digital marketing services.
