Almost all of us keep a spare tire because we fear being stranded on a lonely dark road. Yet, when I ask my small business customers to buy a spare computer, they give me a funny look as if I just asked them to flush several hundred dollars. What I really want them to do is buy a better performing computer to use every day and allow me to cleanup the old but still working one as a spare. That way, when one of their computers stops working while employees are busy churning out the largest proposal of the year, they can carry on without stopping. So what are the potential problems from not having a spare?
You can see how easy it is to get out of control. And one out of control emergency service repair can cost you significantly more than a spare computer. To encourage all our clients to keep a spare on hand, spare maintenance is included in every Network Pain Reliever Agreement at no additional cost! So call your technician today and get a spare. It just makes sense!
Ode to public folders, we shall miss them. The place where companies like to put all that stuff that everyone needs access to. Like the company vacation and holiday calendar, the vendor and customer contact lists. What will we ever do without public folders? Well Microsoft suggests we implement SharePoint. SharePoint has some great features for collaboration not only with your coworkers but your vendors and customers too. However, if all you want is a simple shared vacation calendar and a contact list, isn’t it like going to surgery for a scraped knee?
What are you using public folders for and would you still implement SharePoint or a more simple alternative like creating a fake user and sharing their calendar with everyone in the company?
