As more and more business management and operational tasks are handled by computers and other devices, it is necessary to update your computer equipment every few years. If your business handles protected health information (PHI), you should think twice before purchasing Mac products.

Running a small business can feel like a constant struggle to keep up—with orders, with paperwork, and with the speed of technology. Your computers and myriad other electronic devices may become damaged, obsolete, or inadequate for your business needs every few years. (For computers, for example, the average lifespan is between 3 and 7 years before you’ll need to determine whether to continue to repair or replace.) As you consistently replace and upgrade your electronics, what do you do with the old devices?

Why Cloud Backup Is Vital for Your Business

Posted by Scott Breitman on Jul 10, 2018 8:03:00 AM

One of the most valuable assets of your business is the data that keeps it running. Many companies, however, have data storage systems that are woefully inadequate, insecure, and insufficiently protected. If all of your client lists and inventory live inside your laptop or on your company’s physical server, you’re at risk of data loss. Theft, natural disaster, or technological malfunctions could cause your data to be corrupted, compromised, or completely destroyed. This could derail your business, costing you significant time, money, and customer goodwill. If you don’t regularly back up your business data, you could lose everything. Backing up to the cloud is an economical, efficient, easy way to back up data effectively and comprehensively on a regular, ongoing basis.

Posted by Scott Breitman on Mar 6, 2018 5:01:00 PM

Many companies allow or encourage workers to use their own devices, which makes it even tougher to regulate access and ensure consistent security for company data and networks. Microsoft’s new Azure cloud computing tools provide solutions to many of these modern issues.

Why Hire an IT Company?

Posted by Scott Breitman on May 2, 2017 10:03:00 AM

Great question.

If you’re a business owner, I encourage you to ask yourself the same question about your own line of services.

Why would any business hire your company to do something they could possibly figure out on their own? How hard can it be? Whether you're a plumber, roofer, lawyer, or hairstylist, there’s probably a YouTube channel that could help people figure out most of the same things, right?
