Technology Resources To Help Your Business Grow
We’ve put together a collection of helpful guides to enpower you take your business to the next level using technology.
What’s the cloud?
Why is the cloud so important and how can you use it to your advantage in your business.
We’re cloud computing professionals. So you can trust us to guide you through the whole process and answer any questions honestly.
We know your time is precious, so we’ve been busy writing a new guide. It tells you everything you need to know but have been afraid to ask. In a non-techy, non-jargony way.
Boost Staff Productivity
What happens to your staff when an IT problem stops them from getting on with their work?
If they’re like many employees, they use it as an excuse to down tools and have a chat. Which loses your business money.
In our new guide, we look at the most common IT problems that waste your staff’s time, and how to prevent most problems from happening in the first place.
IT years are like dog years
Every calender year is equivalent to 5-9 IT years.
We’re sure you’re familiar with the concept of dog years. They say the first year of a puppy’s life is the equivalent of 15 human years. And your dog ages the equivalent of five to nine human years every calendar year.
Just as an older dog needs to be taken to the vets more regularly, so too must older IT systems get specialist attention and have more preventa- tive work done.
Is BYOD putting your business at risk?
The data security nightmare of your staff using their own devices to access your data… and the plan you need to protect yourself
We’re pretty sure you know this already, but just in case: BYOD is short for Bring Your Own Device. It basically means that employees are allowed to use their own mobiles, tablets and laptops for work.
It’s about preventing problems – not reactively fixing broken systems
A guide to help you select a new Managed Service Provider, or IT support company, for your business.
We’ve written this new guide in human speak – not techno babble. And it answers the number one question our clients have asked us over the last few years:
“Why don’t we see you and your staff as much as we used to?”
GDPR: The new data law that starts in May 2018
It sounds dull but it’s massive… and your company needs to act now!
Let’s be totally upfront about this now. We’re talking about the new laws surrounding data protection and all the associated paperwork.
Yawn, right? Yep, we know. The trouble is, it’s coming very soon and it WILL affect you, so it’s important that you know exactly what’s expected of your business and start planning for it now.
Caught in the Crosshairs
Why every Staffordshire business is under attack from both hackers and government… & what to do about it!
Have you noticed recently just how often data security scares seem to be in the mainstream news?
Whether it’s the NHS being practically shut down by hackers, or yet another large organisation like Ashley Madison or Uber admitting it got hacked in a major way, data security has become almost daily news.
You and your team are being targeted by email fraudsters right now
Email security is your business’s new headache. They’re targeting MDs, CEOs and other senior staff. But you can fight back!
Remember when we used to do all our business face to face or over the phone? Thanks to the internet, those days are long gone. Now, we can communicate with hundreds of people every day from the comfort of our desks, just by pressing a few buttons.
Over 205 billion emails are sent every single day, and that figure is predicted to rise to 246 billion by the end of 2019. That’s a whole lot of messages, but all that productivity comes at a risk. Emails are to hackers like a damp dishcloth to germs; an open invitation to spread lots of nasty viruses.
