PCG brings home silver: Microsoft Silver Small Business Partner
July 10 2014
In the Olympics of Microsoft business support, medals come in only two colors: silver and gold. After passing a rigorous testing procedure, the ProComp Group is now certified with the Silver Small Business Competency.
Achieving silver status requires passing technical exams on Microsoft's business products, demonstrating appropriate consulting knowledge for software selection and installation, and submitting references from clients we've helped excel over the past 12 months. The certification recognizes our company-wide commitment to maintaining top-tier knowledge and skills to serve our clients.
PCG featured as Storagecraft case study
October 21 2013
PCG principal Walt Bell was featured in a case-study promo by Storagecraft.

A new address for PCG
May 31 2012
We're moving! As of July 1, the ProComp Group world headquarters will relocate to a fabulous new office space in downtown Sellwood. Our old home in the Pearl District's historic Gadsby Building made a great launching pad, and it'll be a sad farewell. But with six people and several servers sharing one 590-square-foot studio, phone conversations have become a challenge! In the new office, we'll have more breathing room, with private offices for Ray and Walt, a workbench for prepping gear, and a special room for the servers. We'll be sending a postcard with the new address out to all clients soon. Give a call if you'd like to stop by and say hi... we might even be able to hear you.
(Our mailing address stays the same: PO Box 12152, Portland, OR 97212).
PCG signs another IT Specialist
August 15 2011
Forget about point guards and power forwards -- at PCG, it's technical talent we aim to draft. After eight years as an independent consultant, new IT Specialist recruit Rob Woodruff suited up for practice with the ProComp Group this week. His background as a one-man shop gives him experience supporting clients in a wide range of industries and multiple platforms, including both desktop and servers. He's also a great teammate and we think you'll enjoy getting to know him!
July 15 2011
Starting Monday, the current ProComp Group joins forces with colleague Walt Bell and his firm, MicroComputer Consultation, to form a bigger, stronger, "groupier" ProComp Group. Walt has been serving IT clients in the Portland area for the past 28 years and brings not only his technology skillset but also his business acumen to his role as a principal with PCG (see his bio on our Team page). With Walt's addition, our capacity to meet clients' needs expands synergistically. We welcome MicroComputer Consultation's clients to the new PCG and look forward to getting acquainted!
