Computer Services

My business is based around computers services such as Computer hardware repair and servicing, software installation and maintenance, including virus and spy-ware removal, website design, development and maintenance and website marketing using SEO and social media.

I am a web designer based in Nenagh, Co. Tipperary who mainly works with the Wordpress platform for web design, as I find that Wordpress is very compatible with the major search engines such as Google, Yahoo and Bing. This is very important as a website must first be functional and the aesthetics of the website are secondary. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t have a pretty website, but that usability and customer experience are the primary concern. Check out more on website design here.

It is not good enough to just build a website, upload it to the web host and hope for the best. Each web-page should be optimized for targeted key words to get each page to the first page of Google or other search engines for the targeted key phrase. Click here to learn more about SEO.

I carry out computer services and computer repairs in the mid-west region of Ireland (mainly Tipperary and Limerick). I have over twenty years experience working in the computer industry, having worked for various companies. I have been employed as a technician, computer engineer, and technical trainer for Dell, Compaq and Apple among others. For more information, Click here.

Featured Website

In this section, I will feature a recent website that I have built. I will update this space regularly, to give the owners of the new website some exposure.

Redesign of Websites

From time to time the owners of business will want a re-branding of their online business which entails a logo redesign and the complete redesign of their website to reflect where their business is, in the present time.

I am available for commissions for this work, but may suggest the upgrading or moving the web hosting service as the current hosting company may not be capable of handling the new Wordpress website.

Here are some examples of recent website re-designs

Future Security-A security company located in Birdhill, who specialises in GSM alarm systems and CCTV systems throughout Ireland.

Fiacri House- A restaurant and Cookery school on the Tipperary/Laois border.

Richard Burke Kitchen Designs.- Bespoke kitchen designer based in Tipperary and accepting commissions from all areas in Ireland and GB.

About Michael Collins

Laptop repair

I am owner, CEO, Designer, Technician and Janitor at Collins Computer Services.

I have been trading as Collins Computer Services since 2003. I hold an NCEA diploma in Electronics from GMIT, a degree in Information System from Dublin City University and a Masters in Internet Technology, also from Dublin City University.

I have been employed by Apple, Dell, Compaq, NCR and SCI in varies roles from computer technician to technical trainer to computer engineer from 1988 to 2003. After I completed my Degree and Masters at DCU,I started designing websites, learning how to rank web pages properly for important keywords. I have designed websites using HTML with CSS, Concrete5, Joomla, Drupal and Wordpress.

Today, I only design using Wordpress because of its flexibility, usability and the fact that Google seems to rank WP websites better than web sites, built with other CMS.
