Anyone that uses a computer knows just how frustrating it is when that computer doesn’t function as intended. For a business, it negatively affects profitability. If you don’t have the support structure in place to mitigate your technology problems, you could be spending a whole lot of money on nothing. In this post, we talk about how being proactive keeps your technology, and your business, working fluidly.
What are Managed IT Services?
Managed IT services work to mitigate computer problems through the use of remote monitoring, management, and proactive maintenance. This strategy helps a business in several ways. Firstly, by using state-of-the-art Remote Management and Monitoring tools to monitor a business’ network and hardware, our certified technicians can ascertain how this technology is running. What’s more, if a piece of hardware isn’t working as intended, our techs can typically troubleshoot and resolve any performance issues before they become business roadblocks. The top-tier Managed Service Providers (MSPs) utilize advanced automations and AI to create self-healing infrastructure that detects threats, outdated software, or other roadblocks to resolve issues before they become roadblocks.
It’s likely that you’ve heard the different terms for Microsoft’s productivity suite offerings in the Office vein. A productivity solution like this cannot be implemented without considering each of your options, including both Microsoft Office 2019 and Microsoft Office 365. They might sound like the same thing, but they are both very different.
Productivity is a hot-button issue in the workplace. On one hand, you want to make sure that your employees have all the tools they need to succeed. On the other, you need to be sure that they are using the tools to get their work done and remain as productive as possible. How can you be sure that your employees are staying on-task and focused? It starts by understanding their motivations and their long-term goals.
The story of Microsoft 365 unofficially starts with millions of individuals that still use workstations that run Windows 7. Microsoft had to come up with a plan to get the millions of people that didn’t upgrade to Windows 10 onto the platform before they retired Windows 7. What better way to accomplish that than making it easier than ever to upgrade? Continue reading →
Productivity. Your company needs it. Your employees are measured largely by their ability to effectively turn their effort into a tangible product or service that creates revenue. In short, it means everything to your business. Why then, if it is so necessary, is it so hard to get the people you depend on to realize just how important their productivity is to the success of the business? This month we will talk about what makes a business productive, and what technology will mitigate the major barriers to productivity.
As technology has advanced, we’ve reached the point where work can easily be accomplished outside of the office environment. In fact, just over half of all employees around the world work from home at least one day each week. This only makes sense, as there are a few very appealing benefits to remote work… including for the employer.
The expectations set forth by businesses might seem impossible until you consider that collaboration has enabled more productivity than ever seen before. Modern collaboration tools have the capability to completely change the way your organization approaches certain tasks. With the right collaboration tools, you can overcome just about any obstacle, including geographic distance and many others.
Downtime can break your business if you let it. Not all organizations have the ability to recover from downtime, and it shows when it matters most. Preventing downtime from occurring doesn’t require immense foresight. Rather, it requires the right mindset. We’ll discuss what downtime really is, what its effects are, and what you can do to keep it from influencing operations at your organization.
The first big job of a person’s career is one of those special moments in life that can’t be beat, but if there is one thing that can do so, it’s a bigger and better opportunity elsewhere. The cold, hard realization that your employees won’t be sticking around forever might be hard to accept, but it’s one that you must consider. In order to keep your current workforce satisfied, you will need to manage your expectations, as well as managing theirs.
There are often cases where businesses will implement solutions based on what they believe will be a benefit to their operations without consulting those who actually use the solutions. When implementing a new IT solution, be sure to consider the feelings of someone who is on the user end of this technology, as it might make all the difference when using it for the benefit of your organization.
