We’re an IT managed services company located in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. We make technology work so you don’t have to worry.


The need for our services often arises from a pesky technology issue, an unsatisfactory IT vendor or an increase in network complexity. These are easy things for us to solve, and we’re happy to provide the solution.


One of the tools we use to prevent technology problems is customer education. We understand technology and speak in terms that are easy to understand. Our consultants help make sense of the situation so you can leave the complexities to our engineers.


First, we create a harmonious technology ecosystem by uniquely delivering IT “the Department Q way.” Then, we continuously improve and innovate for our clients and ourselves.

I hired Austin to work on my systems at both my home office (Mike Huey Seminars, Inc.) and at my physical office (Exit Realty). He is a highly conscientious worker with a high level of technical knowledge. I highly recommend you hire Austin for your next IT consulting needs.

Austin is very good at his business, and is especially good for/with me, as someone who is far from an expert in or even comfortable with the whole technology/computer arena. He is very professional, very competent, very patient, very personable, provides great value, and operates with a very high degree of integrity. Any individual or organization of any size would do themselves a favor by utilizing Austin’s professional services.

Austin Massee, Founder

Austin Massee, started Department Q in 2003 (as SA Computer Services) with only a business card. He consulted with clients and set up home computer networks when high-speed internet was just becoming a reality. From the humble beginning, the company has expanded and developed expertise in serving small businesses. With headquarters in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, now their professional support technicians serve hundreds of clients locally and around the world.

Whenever we have needed professional computer help, we have turned to Austin Massee, owner of Department Q, computer services and business technology consulting. Austin is a talented, skillful professional who has listened to our computer problems and needs over the years, and provided us with comprehensive solutions. He is quick, and cost-effective. He answers all of our questions in an understandable way. Austin gives you insightful solutions that last a long time. We have known Austin for ten years. I highly recommend him to others who have home computer or business computer needs.
