What Our Business is About
Tame Your Computer was set up by our team in 2012 as a local Computer Support and Repairs Service. We are and still are based on the Central Coast NSW Australia. We offer Computer and IT Support and Repair Services to home users and business.
But as we all know, technology and devices are now involved in all aspects of our lives, both day and night, and wherever we go.
So our team at Tame Your Computer developed the Immediate Computer Support Service to allow anyone access to Computer Support at anytime, from wherever you need it. Our Chat Service allows users to talk with one of our technicians when and where it suits them, with no appointments or waiting for call out services. We use the latest technologies that allow us to fix most hardware and software issues remotely, on the spot. But if it is a hardware based issue that needs hands on service, we get out to see you with the right parts, as soon as possible. If you’re not in our area, we have technicians available in yours so location is never a problem. Read more about our Immediate Computer Support here
Tame Your Computer also provide Help-Desk and Managed IT Services to numerous local and out-of-area business. Our specialties lie in the Financial Services IT sector, which allows us to assist any business increase their efficiencies and their bottom line. Read more about our Business Services here

Andrew Sladen – Manager and CEO – Tame Your Computer and Tame Your Business
Andrew has a degree in Computer Science from the University of Newcastle and 10 years experience as a Software Engineer and Software Development Team Leader for IRESS.

Andrews level of experience of dealing with clients from all walks of life, from program users requiring support, to CEOS of major companies helped Andrew become one of the best interpreters of computer and technical requirements around.
Andrew left IRESS in 2012 to focus on building his own brand of Support and Service based around both the Financial Services Sector and the Computer Technical Support Service as a whole. He also heads Tame your Business which is a Boutique Support Service for Financial Service Providers. Read more about Tame Your Business here.
Andrews interests include geeky things like programming, solving technical issues, and watching Dr Who among other Sci-Fi shows when he relaxes. He hates hot weather, and dreams of working from the ice of Antarctica one day as well as traveling throughout Europe repeatedly.
Jodie Gibb – Admin, Design, and Support – Tame Your Computer and Tame Your Business
Jodie has a degree in Information Technology Support from University of Newcastle. Her career started too many years ago to mention in the banking industry where she worked with data processing and customer service before deciding an IT degree would help her rise above the branches. So after 10 + years in Banking, Jodie did her degree and then began working at IRESS for 7 years as a Data-Analyst. At IRESS she managed the financial information within the software, data and software testing and user support for the clients of Mortgage and Financial Service products offered by IRESS. This is where she met Andrew.
Together they left IRESS to pursue their own dreams of providing top-notch support and software solutions from a location that allows them to swim at lunch, and BBQ in their office for dinner.
Jodie’s interests include Digital Photography, Website design, and attempting to renovate old furniture. And that Europe thing. To travel Europe forever. Taking photos and finding old classic furniture.

Easy to work with, and full of the latest ideas and solutions. Tame Your Computer solved all my marketing, technical, and networking needs to get my new business, Acting with Inga, http://www.actingwithinga.com.au up and running. I wouldn’t have got this far this fast without their friendly and professional help. Highly recommended for new businesses needing IT and Marketing assistance.
The team at Tame Your Computer solved my PC problems. I tried the online support option, hesitant that I would be able to follow what to do, but they did everything while I sat back and watched. Great idea from the lovely team at Ettalong Beach NSW
