IT Solution Services

As a business owner, you often find yourself bouncing between the low cost, fly-by-night operation that sort of fixes your computer problems (but often leaves you with an even bigger problem down the road) and the smart and savvy IT expert who has no problem spending your money on top-of-the-line options that are overkill for your operation.

Finding someone who knows computers, is an information technology guru, and who actually stops and considers the options that best apply to you and your business, is tough.

At Mainstay Computing Ltd., we’ve been supporting the small businesses on the Sunshine Coast for almost 12 years. We’ve developed IT systems and processes that are simple, cost effective, and are carefully tailored to each of our customers’ unique needs.


As a small business ourselves, we know the importance in getting the best bang for our buck.

Our approach considers:IT Infrastructure

  • Solving immediate needs
  • Allowing for reasonable growth and expansion
  • Incorporating existing IT infrastructure
  • Real-world return-on-investment for the life of the solution
  • Operational downtime and impact to productivity
  • Alternative workflow options for improved productivity
  • Keeping costs to a minimum


We work with your existing vendors and service providers to help integrate new solutions within existing frameworks. We often provide the “computer guy” bridge between the technical requirements of your vendors and yourself; we help you to understand your computer systems, where you can make improvements, why those improvements are meaningful, and help you to implement those improvements.

We are experts at:

  • Backup SolutionsIT Solutions
  • Hardware Repairs
  • Software Support
  • Systems Cleanup / Optimization
  • Network Design
  • Security Solutions
  • Wireless Networks
  • Workflow Optimization
  • Apple Mac and Microsoft Windows
  • Website Design


We work closely with many of our small businesses to provide preventative on-going system maintenance. This includes monitoring their backups and the health of their systems. We can ID problems before they occur and implement corrective measures. This keeps downtime due to failed hardware to a minimum, and ensures a plan is in place should disaster occur.Mainstay Solutions

We maintain healthy relationships with our customers and their vendors to ensure rapid and knowledgeable support is provided in the event of an emergency.

If you own a small business on the Sunshine Coast and are unsure that you are getting the best out of your computer systems or your IT support, please give us a call and we’d be happy to explore the options that are a fit for you and your business.

2012 Rate Increase

2012 Rate Increase

As we head into 2012, Mainstay Computing is making a rate adjustment to reflect the increased cost of doing business, including increased fuel prices, increased shipping fees, increased electricity costs, and increased disposal fees.

Mainstay Computing has maintained the same price for the last three years and we feel that in order to remain competitive and provide the same level of excellence in IT support and service, we must increase our rate.

Effective January 1st, 2012, our new hourly rate is $75 / hr.

Despite this increase, Mainstay Computing continues to offer the best on-site service and support at the most affordable price on the Sunshine Coast.

We also invite you to review our updated Warranty & Policies.

We understand that increases in prices may impact your business but we hope that we can continue our excellent relationship with our clients.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call us at 604 885 2410.
