Computer repair company launches; taking a byte out of local citizens

Gatortech, a new computer repair and web development company, has chosen an interesting spokesman to help get the word out about its launch: a 9-foot, live alligator.

From 11:00am to 1:00pm on Tuesday, July 14th, the 9-foot alligator will parole the streets of downtown Fort Lauderdale, just southwest of the Starbucks located at 350 Las Olas Boulevard to help spread the following message to local business owners and residents: "Gators are dangerous, using your computer shouldn't be."

Gatortech will have a film crew on site to film the event and with the help of a gator wrangler, interested passersby can get a picture by the company spokesman.

With the added publicity of a live alligator for its launch, Gatortech hopes to gain the attention of local businesses looking for a next-generation computer repair, web development, IT and server support company.

Gatortech is located one block from City Hall at 300 North Andrews, making the company the first IT company based in downtown Fort Lauderdale. This prime location will allow businesses and residents to access quick on-site and offsite service and preventive maintenance.

By combining on-site and remote technical assistance, Gatortech will help businesses reduce their IT costs by up to 50%. Businesses that choose Gatortech for their IT needs will be able to save by outsourcing, while still benefitting from quick, on-site assistance when necessary.
