About

Bill Darron PortraitRed Ball Applications is part of Darron Networking which is my business. I’m Bill Darron and I have been working with technology for more than 25 years.

I spent most of that time working for big companies, providing hands on support to regular people who were perplexed in some way by the technology they needed to use.

I’m someone who understands all that “mumbo jumbo” and can just make it work for normal people.

After helping for other people for so many years, I decided to strike out on my own and offer small businesses and individuals the same kind of service.

I know that most people can’t afford a full time “IT Guy”, so I fill the void. I provide prompt, personal service on both hardware and software.

I didn’t go to school to be “a computer guy”. Just like my customers, I found that I needed to use computers to do my job. So I learned how computers worked. Helping others with computers became my job. I never forget that all this technology exists to make work easier and more efficient. Technology is a tool to accomplish a task. My job is only done when a person can get their job done.

I really want to help people use technology so they can be productive.
