New Hours Beginning 10-9-2017
Beginning on, Monday, October 9th, 2017, Widomaker’s telephone sales and support hours will change as follows:
- 10:00am – 6:00pm, Monday – Friday*
- Closed Saturday (On Saturdays, certain messages, left before noon, if they contain sufficient details, may be processed before the next business day, based on availability.)
- Closed Sunday
* During support hours, if a representative is not immediately available, you may be prompted to leave a message, so a representative, once available, may return your call. If you are prompted to leave a message, please do so.
* If you leave a message, be sure to leave details. Leaving a message that asks our support representative to “just call you back” makes it difficult for us to prioritize the call. If you leave enough detail in your message, we can often quickly send you an email to answer your question, which gets you a response much more quickly than waiting for a call back.
July 4th 2017
Our offices and phone support will be closed on, Tuesday, July 4th, 2017. We will resume our normal hours on July 5th. All systems will remain monitored during the holiday.
Have a safe and fun weekend 🙂

Avoid Tech Support Scams
This is a reminder to avoid falling for Tech Support Scams.
Tech Support Scams, typically, involve someone cold calling a potential victim, saying they are with a trusted organization or company, such as Microsoft or Windows, and warning that the victim’s computer is malfunctioning or infected with a dangerous virus. Then the caller (scammer) offers to help by having the victim download software, or remotely connecting to the victim’s computer, to fix the problem.
Wednesday, August 19th, 2015
Our offices will be closing early on, Wednesday, August 19th, 2015, at 4:00PM. If prompted, please leave a message on our voicemail, then we will return your call the next business day during normal hours.
