'That Girl" calls Roch. home again

That Girl is now taking calls in her hometown of Rochester.

Lisa Hendrickson launched the new Med City base of operations for Call That Girl, her six-year-old computer support firm.

"It looked like a good opportunity and a chance to grow," she says of moving her business back to Rochester after running it in the Twin Cities since 2007.

Callthatgirl Hendrickson moved into ground-level space at 521 N. Broadway that was last occupied by Danielle's E-Shoes & More. While she is putting the finishing touches on the space and is hiring an assistant, That Girl is clear that she is open for business.

"I'm here and ready to go," she says.

Her services include technical fixes and upgrades that focus mainly on software. Hendrickson repairs virus-ravaged systems, provides software and handles home-networking duties. Much of the work she does for small businesses, home-office workers, telecommuters and home users — currently about 800 clients — is done remotely.

Dialing in online saves the customer the hassle of pulling cords and hauling a wonky computer to her office. This is particularly popular with her work-at-home customers who need a quick fix.

Her return to Rochester came about when the people renting the home she lived in here while working at Mayo Clinic decided to move out. She decided it was time to bring her business back to where it was created.

"I've been planning it about a year," Hendrickson says. "I guess I just keeping coming back to the well.
