Unlike many other service providers in the information technology and records management industries, Seras truly understands the needs of its customers: an honest, professional, organized service provider that shows up on time, every time. Our customers can attest to our accessibility, communication, and flexible budget options to meet their needs. As more and more of our document scanning customers in the Columbia, SC area began asking for good help, we began offering complete computer and information technology services to businesses in Columbia, West Columbia, Cayce, Irmo, Lexington, and many other municipalities in the Greater Columbia, SC market.
Personal Touch. Literally.
Our management team is the best of the best and brings an awesome variety of business experience to Seras: Our leadership team shares many common values including a commitment to family and the community, honesty and integrity in everything we do, active lifestyles, and competitive urgency for all aspects of our operation.
Harry Hoppmann has over 15 years experience in a variety of sales and service environments including 5 years of customer service management in the document shredding industry. He is focused primarily on the acquisition of new accounts, as well as detailed problem-solving for specific customer requests. He also handles finance and administrative functions for Seras. One of the biggest aspects that Harry brings to Seras is providing one of our biggest competitive advantages: a conduit between service technicians and our customers. Seras technicians always do their absolute best to speak in generalities and terms that customers can understand, but many problems and resolutions are difficult to translate. Harry understands this roadblock and always works hard to ensure that the customer understands what has happened and what is going to happen to keep their business running at peak performance.
Harry is married with two young daughters and spends his free time either with his family, coaching and helping with his children’s sports teams, or in the outdoors: hiking, boating, fishing, hunting, and more. Harry serves in a leadership position at his church and enjoys coordinating and attending church-based service projects related to the environment and cleaning up Columbia.

Steven loves building new systems for our customers: from multi-rack server systems to specialized workstations and has an uncanny knack for creating great values that exceed our customers' expectations.
