Computer Revolutions was founded in April of 2004 by Travis Larson and Dave Montag when they realized that there was a need for quality computer services within the Quad City area. Countless nights spent at Travis’s apartment setting up their first website turned into having the opportunity to open their first storefront in downtown Moline, Illinois. The first years were tough but proved to be worth the efforts when customers began telling their friends about the great personalized service that two young guys had given them for their computer needs. It wasn’t long after that where business customers started inquiring about their IT and computer equipment needs. The continued success of the business has been very organic since those early days. Quality products and services coupled with the idea of doing things right the first time has continued to consistently grow the business at Computer Revolutions. Now with two locations and multiple valued employees who share the same values, Computer Revolutions is directly raising the bar for other Quad Cities IT providers.
