Josh Weinstein demonstrates his office automation system from an iPad that is positioned next to an almost archaic pay telephone in the new showroom.

Information Technology specialist Josh Weinstein has moved Advanced Billing & Computing Solutions to 5131 Main St. in the Southbriar Plaza Shopping Center. The company had been located inside the offices of its client, Mobile Care Group, just next to Southbriar, but had outgrown the space.
“This new space is multi-purpose and functional for what I envisioned,” Weinstein said. “We now have a large showroom that displays a variety of personal computers, Macs, desktops, laptops, printers, servers and more. We have office space for Matt Teal and me, the primary IT consultants working for clients, along with IT Equipment Engineer Austin Gorniak.” He noted the list of clients has expanded beyond medical to include many other industries such as legal, accounting, real estate, insurance, churches, nonprofits, engineering and more.
“The back office area has a shop space for computer repair, refurbishing electronics, and a high-tech training area with nine computers, a 100″ screen and a projector. The training space is going to be made publicly available for rent by the hour or day,” he said. “The space also doubles as a disaster recovery center for companies displaced due to a fire, flood or other natural disasters, and need a temporary location to set up operations.”
In addition, because of the refurbished computer business, Weinstein has also established an online sales business for products requiring specialized packaging. Recently, he has added the Instapak Foam Shipping system that envelopes the product to be shipped securely in a foam substance mixture, streamlining the shipping process. “We can offer this service and package products for others, too,” he said.
Weinstein has been helping clients navigate their digital, hardware, software and cyber worlds since first graduating from The University of Toledo in 2000, earning a Master’s Degree in Information Systems and Marketing. Several years later, on the advice of his physician father, Weinstein returned to school where he earned his second advanced degree and became RHIA certified in health information management.
“That certification led to my meeting Joe Wallace and a job as IT Director for Mobile Care Group in 2010,” Weinstein recalled. It was there that Weinstein developed the medical billing operation and several other systems that have contributed to the success of the multifaceted Mobile Care Group.
Just four years after joining the company, it was at Wallace’s urging, that the two joined forces creating Advanced Billing & Computing Solutions with Mobile Care Group as a partner and initial client. “This was an amazing opportunity,” Weinstein related. “While we remained in the Mobile Care Group offices, we were able to offer our IT services to outside clients.”
“Recently we realized it was time for us to move out on our own` so we can continue to grow and expand our IT service offerings to the Sylvania community,” Weinstein stated. “This is an ideal move for us.”
