It’s not a stretch to say that any small business that wants to thrive this day and age not only needs to embrace technology in the workplace, but needs to stay ahead of the curve. This doesn’t necessarily mean every business owner needs to be tech savvy, but it does mean every business simply must have several things in place if it hopes to thrive.
Here at CallTeks, we help businesses of all sizes implement technology and AV solutions. We’ve come up with a list of the few pieces of technology that every small business needs, from corner cupcake shops to construction contractors.
Reliable Data Backup
Too many businesses learn how important it is to backup information the hard way. You probably know that relying on just your hard drive is a recipe for disaster, and likely do the occasional dump onto an external drive.
We’ve found that best way to back up data is easily and automatically. That would be a system that automatically saves while you work, both to your hard drive and some cloud-based storage. There’s a common misconception that sensitive information is more at risk when saved on the cloud. However, it is as safe an option as anywhere else, even safer.
Cloud computing is about so much more than efficient and cost effective data storage. No piece of technology has done as much to create a more connected workforce worldwide. Everything form file sharing to video conferencing and teleworking is more affordable and easier for businesses today. Now you can access important documents, presentations and all of your folders anytime, and from anywhere.
Improve the way your business communicates with customers, clients and leads with a cutting edge CRM system (Customer Relationship Management). This will help you streamline your marketing and sales agenda by integrating seamlessly with your website or email, cutting down your workload as well as mistakes.
A security breach can completely devastate a small business. From taking down your website, or hijacking your employee email accounts to spread spam and steal sensitive information. Having secure networks is more important than ever before, which is why it is absolutely imperative to have your networks installed correctly from the start.
