This is my "welcome page" for Paramus, close to where I live. If you need help with your PC, Mac, router, or ANYTHING computer or network-related, I can help you real quickly because I live so close to you! As you can read below, I am a retired Systems Analyst from a major fortune 500 company (Xerox Corporation). And since I no longer have to travel into NYC (Ugh!) everyday, I would like to use my experience and skills locally. If you need help setting up your virtual office or need to extend youyr wireless capability to the backyard so you can stream the deer, bears, and coyotes, I can help.
Below are the details of my services...
My name is Bill Sherwood. I have recently retired from 38 years of working in NYC for a corporate giant (Xerox). In my last role, which ran for 20 years, I was a Systems Analyst. My job was to connect our MFDs (Multi-Function Devices) to our customers' networks. I also provided IT consulting services, which included designing and creating new workflows for our customers. I was trusted to support some of our biggest and most important clients (Verizon, AECOM, NYPD, the National Football League, Major League Baseball, The National Hockey League, and just about all NYC Government and Federal Agencies located in NYC. That’s me in the picture at Met Life Stadium, where I provided support for the Big Game. At that event, my responsibilities were to receive the game stats quarter by quarter, and distrubute them to the huge media presence there. We did the same for post-game players' quotes. As for me, I have several Microsoft Server Certifications, in addition to Certifications with Apple and Novell. I now work independantly, primarily around North Jersey, but I do sometimes travel to other locations including Rockland County, NY, but NEVER in NYC, where I just retired from! For most of my regular customers, I have setup remote support capability. With that, I can fix most issues without a site visit. However, first time clients require a site visit. I need to get paid for my work! And speaking of pay, since I am a one-man operation, my overhead is quite low. Therefore, I can offer you my services for a fraction of what most others charge for IT support in NJ. Below is a small sample of what I provide.

Paramus (/pəˈræməs/ pə-RAM-əs, with the accent on the second syllable) is a borough in Bergen County, New Jersey, United States. As of the 2010 United States Census, the borough's population was 26,342, reflecting an increase of 605 (+2.4%) from the 25,737 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn increased by 670 (+2.7%) from the 25,067 counted in the 1990 Census. A suburb of New York City, Paramus is located 15 to 20 miles (24 to 32 km) northwest of Midtown Manhattan and approximately 8 miles (13 km) west of Upper Manhattan. In 2013, it was named as a "New Jersey Healthy Town" under the state's Mayor's Wellness Campaign. The Wall Street Journal, has characterized Paramus as the Quintessential Suburb with small town charm.
Paramus was incorporated as a borough by an act of the New Jersey Legislature on March 2, 1922, and ratified by a referendum held on April 4, 1922, that passed by a vote of 238 to 10. Paramus was created from portions of Midland Township, which now exists as Rochelle Park. The name is usually said to be of Native American origin, derived from words meaning "land of the turkey" or meaning "pleasant stream."
The borough is one of the largest shopping destinations in the country, generating over $5 billion in annual retail sales, more than any other ZIP code in the United States. Despite this, Paramus has some of the most restrictive blue laws in the nation, banning nearly all white-collar and retail businesses from opening on Sundays except for gas stations, restaurants and grocery stores, and a limited number of other businesses. More than 63% of Bergen County voters rejected a referendum on the ballot in 1993 that would have repealed the county's blue laws, though the Paramus restrictions would have remained in place.
New Jersey Monthly magazine ranked Paramus as its 21st best place to live in its 2013 rankings of the "Best Places To Live" in New Jersey. According to a recent NerdWallet survey, the sixth-best place to start a business in New Jersey is Paramus as well as being the ninth-best place for home ownership in the state. Fundera's 2016 study ranked Paramus the fourth-best city in New Jersey for entrepreneurs. Paramus ranked in the top 20 places with populations over 25,000 in the U.S. by median household income as reported by CNNMoney.
