Dublin, CA (PRWEB) October 28, 2009
TechShortcut.com is now providing free full-page business profiles in its online directory for U.S. tech service providers that help local small businesses. TechShortcut.com (http://www.techshortcut.com) is a new independent meeting place dedicated to helping smaller businesses find local computer and tech help and learn more about technology to improve their businesses.
"We want to help small businesses find tech help in their immediate area. Free business profiles will help encourage tech service providers to sign-up to get noticed," said Jeff Keihl, founder of TechShortcut.
Benefits to tech service providers include:
- A new source for local leads.
- Increased visibility to the small business community.
- Full-page business profiles showcase expertise and products and services supported.
- Business profiles are submitted to leading search engines.
- Business profiles are free, no strings attached.
Tech service providers include tech service businesses such as consultants, repair technicians, website designers, website developers, value added resellers (VARs) and managed service providers (MSPs). Technology areas covered include business management applications, communications, websites, security and other related hardware and software.
What is unique about TechShortcut?
- Online "Yellow Pages" type websites don't differentiate well between software companies, hardware manufacturers and service providers. TechShortcut provides a directory of local tech service providers that is dedicated entirely to the tech service needs of small businesses.
- TechShortcut provides time-saving solution overview guides, a configurable search tool, a list of websites helpful to small business, a blog and other resources to help small businesses learn more about technology.

Established in 2009, TechShortcut's mission is to help revitalize the small- and medium-sized business technology market by providing a vibrant, independent and free meeting place where business owners and operators can find local technology service providers and gibberish-free tech information to improve their businesses.
Prior to founding TechShortcut.com, Jeff Keihl did software support, development and consulting work over the past 20 years. Eventually, Jeff began focusing on helping smaller tech-challenged businesses rather than the Fortune 500 companies he primarily worked with at PeopleSoft. In 2005 he started his transition toward this new focus by spending two years consulting with the Northern California Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Technology Advisory Program (TAP). "Working with small businesses showed me that there are serious inefficiencies in the small business technology market," Jeff said. After seeing how difficult it was for businesses to find local tech help and concise relevant tech information, Jeff decided to help solve these problems.
