*Frustration Alert* Install updates?

*Frustration Alert* Install updates?

Isn’t it frustrating when that message appears? Do you want to install updates?

Typically, you’ve just sat down, full of enthusiasm for the day ahead… when an update message pops up.

So what do you do? If you’re like most people you’ll ask it to remind you later. Nothing is going to stop you from tackling the 101 jobs you had planned for today.

But then tomorrow? Later.

The next day? Later.

Day after that? Later.

Yet delaying that update is risking you a bigger setback later on. Because not only do updates and maintenance ensure you’re working on the most current versions of software. They also keep your machine protected from the latest malware and threats.

If you hear any of your staff moaning about this, we can fix it really quickly. We can set updates to happen when they’re not working.

To keep the business safe, and productivity high at the same time. They just need to tell us they’re having that problem.

A bad workperson blames their tools

A bad workperson blames their tools

And, sometimes that workperson is right. Here’s what I mean.

It’s likely that in your business your team have different jobs.

  • George might use most of his time writing emails to clients
  • Alice may spend her day editing images
  • And James uses his time creating presentations (and drinking coffee)

So would they all use the same machines for their work?

With different roles come differing needs. Have you ever considered if your equipment meets your team’s specific needs?

Using my example, Alice might benefit from a full HD monitor and a significantly faster computer. Whereas George would be fine with an older all-rounder.

Where do you start though? It’s usually unrealistic to scrap what you have and buy in new equipment for everyone. So look at what everyone is doing and make a list of priorities.

If you have new starters joining your business, it’s also a good time to introduce more ‘personalised’ machines. Matched to each role.

The right equipment can make it easier for everyone to do a better job. It’s an investment that can really pay off.

At any point we can review your team’s computing needs, and see if we can find ways to make them more productive.

Get rid of your little black book

Get rid of your little black book

No, not that little black book 🙄

I mean the one you use to write down your passwords for each piece of software or application you use at work and at home.

You may have disguised the passwords to look like something else, but it probably wouldn’t take a detective to work out exactly what they’re for.

And this is a potentially huge compromise for your business.

But passwords – good passwords generated randomly – are far too difficult for normal humans to remember.

You need something to help.

That’s where a password manager can help you.

The year 2000 called. It wants its phones back

The year 2000 called. It wants its phones back

Technology changes really quickly.

Just think back to the mobile phone you had in 2000. Probably a Nokia, or a Motorola flip phone, right?

What about your computer? A big grey or beige box that took over most of your desk, with an even bigger monitor?

How about your office phone system? Er… was it similar to how it is now?

Everything else has moved on so much. Your phones can’t possibly be useful for how you do business today, versus how you did business 20 years ago.

Office phones are often overlooked. Yet there are countless benefits to upgrading your phone system.

We’ve written a brand new guide to show you how much more your phones could be doing for your business.
