Are slates and tablets right for your business?

Posted by on August 14, 2014 | No Comments

It was only a year ago when the iPad was considered a netbook killer, but people are still questioning whether tablets are able to replace an actual laptop.

They’re great for surfing the web, checking your emails and reading digital magazines or eBooks. Their convenient and practical nature was originally thought best for recreational purposes such as searching Facebook, playing games or watching movies etc.

However as the industry begins to adapt to the demand for tablets, so does the increase in apps tailored to assisting a business. Dropbox and iCloud exist to overcome the limited storage disadvantages such as in the case of downloading apps.

When deciding whether or not slates or tablets are good for your business it comes down to the original idea that Tablets are better for play and some work, and laptops are better for work and some play.

Using Online Storage Services

Posted by on July 20, 2014 | No Comments

If you’re still sceptical about the benefits of online storage services, let us highlight some of the acknowledged benefits for your smaller business.

Cloud software is becoming broader in scope and usage. Packages such as Microsoft Office 365 includes email, calendars, conferencing, website building tools and access to the Microsoft Office desktop suite used by millions of businesses across the globe.

The biggest advantage is its assistance of managing projects and collaborating much more effectively with your customers. Other benefits include heightened security for your business that storing vital information on site cannot always guarantee, with all your information backed up and retrievable within the online database.

Online storage services have become a huge factor of commercial competiveness. The ease smaller businesses can have from keeping information in a more accessible form is something that can benefit across the whole organisation internally and externally.

Testimonials

When you'€™re in a high-pressure situation, there'€™s nothing like on-site response. Having Mark there to fix things when I was about to give my presentation was a life-saver. Being on the phone to a helpdesk 5 minutes before one of my major presentations just wasn'€™t an option. Congratulations to Mark and his team - well done lads!
