It’s your company. It has your name on the door and your reputation is on the line if things don’t go well. We understand that. But trying to do everything yourself just doesn’t always work. Let us help.
Here in America, we take pride in self reliance. It’s important that we be able to wear many hats and take care of things ourselves. But is that really the best way to do things? Is it the most effective way to run your business? Probably not.
You spend countless hours educating yourself and working with your staff on the things you need to know to be the best you can be in your area of business. How can you also devote the time and resources it would take to be an expert in Information Technology, software and hardware?

Servers, Cloud storage and back up, internet security, preventing malware attacks and recovering from hardware crashes, that’s what we do. We also have help desk services for when your people encounter a software or hardware problem. Some issues require us to be on site, but there are also issues we can solve by logging in remotely and diagnosing the problem right from our offices.

You’re a business owner and you’ve been doing just fine without a huge staff or a dedicated IT guy. So far, so good. Like everything else these days, your business depends on technology: email, databases, documents and spreadsheets—maybe even software unique to your industry. What happens when things stop running smoothly?
Perhaps you and your staff are becoming frustrated with computers that aren’t working properly, and network that’s too slow and you’ve been troubleshooting computer/printer/router problems—your business needs IT support. In fact, we think it need us, UTS.
As you pile more and more work on an older system, it will slow down. At some point, it will heave a sigh and stop working all together. It’s important to perform preventative maintenance on the components of your network. It’s also important to ensure you are using the type of computer, servers and network equipment that is made to handle higher volumes of data.
Rather then waiting until something catastrophic happens, let us go through your current configuration and make recommendations. Adding new devices to your network may seem easy, and in some cases it might be, but it’s not always the case. It is a delicate process that needs to be done by professionals to ensure that it is set up right for the sake of your business.
As the new year begins, it is the very best time to re-evaluate your tech operations, and if your business doesn’t already have an IT strategy, you might need to consider finding an IT partner as soon as possible. We hope that will be Unified Technology Solutions.

Regular backups are an insurance policy for your business. It doesn’t matter how big your business is, regular backups are essential to securing your company’s network. In fact, regular backups may arguably be the single most important step you take for preventing a network disaster.
People are not infallible. They make mistakes, and actually, they make them quite often. Emails containing viruses are accidentally opened every day and important files are often mistakenly deleted. There’s no reason to fear these issues if you take frequent incremental snapshots of your systems. You can simply restore to a snapshot taken before the virus happened. Or you can recover the file from a time before it was deleted. It’s really easy to protect from the little things and there’s the added benefit of being ready for the big things as well.
Statistics from FEMA indicate that 40 percent of businesses fail to open after suffering a natural disaster and additional 25 percent fail within a year. The United States Small Business Administration also finds that a whopping 90 percent of businesses fail two years after suffering a disaster. Part of the problem has to do with failure to back up data, leaving businesses starting from scratch following a disaster.
Unfortunately, too many businesses still don’t perform proper backups. Oone study in particular found that 60 percent of small businesses don’t back up daily and some of these companies don’t perform backups at all.
While hackers can only steal digital information, thieves steal actual computers, smartphones, hard drives, or even servers from homes, businesses, or storage facilities. Once stolen, it is unlikely you’ll ever see it again. If you backup your data to an external space such as the Cloud, you’ll still be able to access it even if your computer is stolen, and you’ll be able to re-download the information to your new software and hard drives.
Backing up your computer means you are taking a proactive approach to your data. Consider it your way of taking an insurance policy out on your computer that will protect you from the internal and external forces that threaten its safety. If you don’t backup your computer today, you are at risk for viruses, hackers, and hard drive failure that can cause you to lose your data forever.
What can Unified Technology Solutions do to ensure your data is safe and recoverable? We can set up a Completely Automatic system for you, which will help you to make sure all important files will automatically back up on a set schedule. That way you won’t have to worry about forgetting to perform a backup during a stressful time or a busy period in your business.
There is a children’s song that goes something like this, ” Clean up clean up everybody everywhere, clean up clean up everybody do your share.” If you have children, it’s a safe bet you will use this sing-song to get them to clean up of all those toys they scatter everywhere.
Today I am asking all of you with tons of old files and miscellaneous bits to sing that song for yourself and clean up your computers. When your system gets overloaded with data, it is going to take longer for the software to look through your file indexes in order to find things. It’s also going to have a more difficult time finding contiguous free space to write those files.
Think of it like someone having to carry a heavy load of suitcases around with them all the time. Carting around a load of files and photos and PDF’s that you just don’t need any longer is kind of akin to hoarding. So, try this before you call us and say your system is running way too slow, clean things up.
Go through your documents folder and off load any really old files, general correspondence and old projects. Then go through your photos, We tend to take tons of photos, offload them all from our phones and never look at them again. Some of those photos are blurry or not really very good, so delete them. Let them go.
Video files are huge, so, if you can, move those to the cloud. The same goes with music files. Then run the disk clean up utility on your system followed by Defrag and a general clean up of all the temp files that get downloaded from your internet searches.
It’s also a very good idea to have UTS perform regular maintenance of your computers, servers and peripherals. That way we can diagnose any potential system problems and clean them up before they get serious enough to impact your operations. Just like getting regular checkups for your health, it’s important to do the same for your systems. Maintaining these devices on a regular basis reduces the risk of your system breaking down.
American culture has for years embraced the notion that the more hours you work, the more effective you are. There are studies out now which dispute that fact. According to Lou Babuaata of Zen Habits, prioritizing your Most important tasks. Then get those done first thing in the morning and move on with all of the other work that pops into your life during the day. This is the best way to be productive. Any number of hours we work in a week that surpasses 55 hours is mostly a waste of our time. The longer we work, the less productive we become. We can now say that’s a fact.
We have a hurricane heading in our direction. If it does hit, then no one knows how long our homes and businesses will be down for. Should we get anything close to what Harvey unloaded in Texas and Louisiana, we could be in serious trouble.
They say “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. When I was a kid I would nod my head to sayings like these, knowing that my elders thought they were imparting great wisdom to me. I wasn’t always sure what they meant by them, but I knew it must be something wise and useful. So, let me ask you, what do you think this saying means?
You might ask us why we named our company Unified Technology Solutions? Why didn’t we simply call your company “We Repair and Install Computers?” We called ourselves Unified Technology Solutions for the simple reason that we don’t just install computers, or repair computer problems, we help you manage all your IT challenges, and get the most out of your technology budget.
