Jackson Technical will occupy its new three-story headquarters, 611 S. Elgin Ave. in downtown Tulsa, at the end of this year. With 18 employees and dozens of technical services offered, this new move from its current location at 427 S. Boston Ave. in the Philtower is in part because of the company’s success.

The founder of Jackson Technical, Tim Jackson, became interested in computers over 30 years ago. “I picked up BASIC programming easily,” says Jackson. “That turned into a love of computers and electronics in general, which led me to join the U.S. Army as an electronics technician.”

After leaving from the army and coming to Tulsa, Jackson began the company in 1999 as a one-man business. As the company grew, it moved to the Atlas Life Building in 2001. Then, in 2007, after building a decent number of client relationships, Jackson says, they moved to the Philtower.

Jackson Technical offers many services, including network security services, disaster recovery, general support, IT consulting and internet services, such as web hosting and design. Jackson Technical is adding even more services, one of which is VoIP phone systems and similar services because they are highly integrated into company networks.

Jackson Technical also serves the community by giving free or discounted services to nonprofit organizations and actively participates with Leadership Tulsa, which, Jackson says, “has been a great way to introduce our staff to board service for nonprofits and other community efforts.”

Jackson Technical offers many services specially designed for small businesses, such as remote access solutions, database design and conversion, server performance monitoring, and software installation and maintenance. The company also offers lesser-known services, such as license compliance reporting, network assessments and auditing, and staff augmentation. “We treat our clients’ IT systems as if they were our own,” he says.

Jackson says a common technical issue many of his clients face is the threat to their security, especially through email. His solution is simple. He recommends that computer users never click on links in emails that they aren’t sure lead to the advertised destination. He also recommends creating a “comprehensive backup and disaster recovery plan to test before there is an emergency.

“Think of it like fire drills for your network.”
