We get the call, there is panic in the customer’s voice, we know it’s something serious. What happened? Someone in the company downloaded a virus. There is nothing more frustrating than having all of your hard work and files at risk from a computer virus. No matter how careful you try to be, you never know when your guard slips and you click on a link that you normally would not have!  It can happen to any of us.

Small Business and the Economy

There are several pages on Facebook where growing companies can post employment opportunities. It seems there are positions open for people who are qualified to do the work. Most of the positions are for skilled tradesman, but there are also schools, healthcare companies and tech companies who are searching for people to fill their vacancies. I belong to a local BNI chapter, and at least once a month one of the businesses in my chapter asks for referrals to people in their field who may be looking to move to a new company.

Hire An IT Expert

Growing companies are often faced with issues relating to new products, the need to track their sales, a comprehensive network for processing orders and tracking sales. Because they have talented, intelligent people on their staff, they take a cursory look around for a solution to their current challenges, and when they don’t find something which fits their needs, they tend to re-invent the wheel, unnecessarily.

Entrepreneur magazine published a post by Harry Red which specifically addressed the sales aspects of companies, but within that post, he talks about how important it is NOT to re-invent the wheel and to look around for someone who can more easily and efficiently solve your problem. I thought these two excerpts were a great illustration of what our Managed IT solutions can do for growing companies:

1. See if somebody already solved your technology problem.

Even when you do have a genuine technology problem, chances are somebody out there already had a crack at it.

Alistair Brett, a World Bank science commercialization expert, and partner at innovation consultancy firm Rainforest Strategies, pointed out how science-based companies tend to reinvent the wheel. They face a specific technical problem, but can’t find a solution outside the company, so they just roll their own.

“In a substantial number of cases, the problem has been solved by somebody who is not directly working in that field of research or development,” Brett said in an interview.

He gave an example of a company that struggled to create a chemical adhesive. The solution was eventually found by an electrical engineer — someone from an outside industry. An expert on a different kind of stickiness…

2. Take a down-to-Earth example.

Let’s say you want to solve information technology (IT) problems for small law firms.

First step? Consider talking to larger law firms, because law firms with in-house IT departments have wisdom for you. They can tell you what kind of problems lawyers have with IT, what technology they need to solve them, how much time this takes away from clients and so on. Instead of starting the puzzle from scratch, you extract wisdom from those who’ve been there before. Simple.

Then, you go talk to smaller law firms and put your new insights to the test.

Do they have the same problems? Can you pre-sell your value proposition? Better yet, will these law firms pay you right now so you can deliver a killer solution to their problems once you have everything in place?

Start this way and you save yourself from grinding through much of the initial learning curve.”

To take the example further. Once you have listened to the advice of a mentor in a larger firm our Managed IT specialists at  Unified Technology Solutions will probably have the knowledge you are looking for to help you move forward. If we don’t immediately have a solution come to mind, we have the resources to find the best solution which you. Hiring outside IT Management can save you money in the long run.

Switching to a VOIP Phone System

on May 2, 2017 No comments

 

VOIP phone systems for business in Vero Beach, FL

When your company uses landlines, the ability to be mobile is restricted. The ability to add lines and upgrade features is limited. The ability to integrate the company Smart Phones is limited. When you install a Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) System all of those limitations and restrictions disappear. And, it’s less expensive.
