Scott Beck

Scott Beck’s journey into technology started in 1993 while employed as an On-Air Radio Personality. The station he was at became the first in Atlantic Canada to implement a “Live Assist” computer system that controlled what played on the air and eventually led to the downsizing of staff. Surviving the cuts, he decided the best job security was to learn about computers! In the following years, his “Computer Hobby” developed into a true passion. Leaving his position with the Department of Justice Canada, where he had been exposed to networks and servers, he returned to school to become Industry Certified. Graduating Top 7 from a two-year program, which he completed in just one year, Scott earned several certifications: Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer, Cisco Certified Network Associate, CompTIA Network+ and CompTIA A+. In 2002, Scott started asking small business owners and executives what they disliked about their computers, network and support. Over and over again, he heard spine-tingling, blow-by-blow accounts of things like: • Our computer people take days to return my calls … and when they do, all I hear is finger-pointing. Isn’t anyone accountable for anything anymore? • It’s too complicated…we just want to do our jobs, run our business… • Nobody understands how it impacts my business when things don’t run properly. • I spend all this money on equipment and see no returns on the investment… They didn’t even explain why I needed the new stuff or what it was going to do for my business. • What time is it? It’s got to be getting close to lunchtime. My computer’s already locked up at least twice today. • What am I paying for? Their bill and explanations are always in Geek Speak. Seeing an opportunity to provide something different, BeckTek—a Technology Management Firm—was launched in March 2004 to help small businesses owners and executives run their businesses faster, easier and more profitably. Protecting clients’ best interests and delivering a superior client service experience earned BeckTek a coveted Greater Moncton Excellence Award for Service Excellence, the only IT Company to do so in the twenty-seven year history of the awards. In 2014, BeckTek received a Moncton Times & Transcript Reader’s Choice Award. Since opening BeckTek, Scott has talked before, met with and worked with, hundreds of business owners and executives throughout Atlantic Canada. Scott enjoys helping business professionals get past their fears and uncertainty regarding technology. He is passionate about reducing client’s business risks, turning technology into a competitive advantage, and improving their profitability.
