“When a file goes missing, they are there. When a computer screen goes blue, they are there. When a co-worker is unable to print, they are there. When email is down, the internet is slow, or a computer freezes up, it is these self-trained individuals that are called upon by their colleagues when an official IT person is not available,” said Roddy Mclean, Crucial.com director of marketing. “They may be the person sitting next to you, the person working in the department downstairs, or the one sorting the mail, but regardless of their official duties, when it comes to taking on the office computer problems, these superstars are deserving of the title, Official Unofficial Office Computer Go-To Superstar.”
