These days it does not matter whether you own a cafe or a dentist, a library or a solictors, internet access is regarded as he norm and lets face it, is expected.
So is it worth you allowing vistitors and clients access to the internet when they visit your premises?
We take a look....
The beauty about technology is that it is forever changing. Sometimes this is great, such as when we were introduced to 4G, but sometimes it can be bad such the introduction of malware and data breaches etc.
This month we take a look at what technological advances you can expect to see in the short term i.e. in the next 12 months or so and how they will benefit us as users.
Is the future bright?
At school, teachers always preached that you were better getting to get a job in an office rather than on a building site.
With an office job, you never had to worry about the rain or injuries and you would always get a good pension. Who doesn’t want that? Well, as it stands, after working in badly maintained, ill equipped offices for a few years, you will find that quite a few people now don't.
Sore eyes, achy shoulders, arched backs, fatigue and RSI are just some of the symptoms people pick up when working in an office.
Most of these can be avoided. All it takes is a few simple changes to your behaviours and some simple changes to the equipment you are using.
Whether you like it or not, there is a huge change coming with regards to how you operate your business. GDPR - General Data Protection Regulation is going to affect all business, from sole traders through to large corporations.
If you collect any data on customers or clients, you will need to address how that data is collected and stored.
These new regulations are really designed to stop the tech giants such as Google and Facebook from selling unauthorised data that they have collated about their users. Unfortunately though it will also affect a lot of other businesses.
Recent research suggests that around 50% of small to medium sized businesses are on the lookout for ways to expand. It could be that your business is at the stage of its evolution where you are seeking bigger premises, increasing your headcount or it may be a case that you are simply looking at ways of streamlining your business and improving efficiency.
Whatever you are looking to do, your IT and it's infrastructure can be a deciding factor in how you move forward. This month we will look at how at how IT can help, and explain how an IT support contract with ourselves will remove the stress and hassle of you having to do the legwork yourself.
