New Year, New Technology Checkup!
With a new year upon us, it's always a good idea to check in on your organization's tech operations for upgrades and optimization opportunities.
Here are some tips to approach 2020 with a strong tech foundation!
Devices. Upgrade your computer, tablet, smartphone, etc., to help better achieve your technology goals for the rest of the year.
Internet. Make sure your connection for your office and home- which is clearly a critical a component of your technology infrastructure given your day-to-day business needs,- is up to date and running at the appropriate upload and download speed.
Firm software updates. A new feature or update have been introduced while you were on vacation, so take a moment and review the recent announcements/messages from your core technology partners. Another important area is to make sure all of your programs are up to date with the latest version, which often entails bug fixes and security updates.
Webinar/training reviews. Check to see if your organization has published any updated, helpful training materials that highlight the new features for new systems your firm may have deployed. You definitely don’t want to miss out on any efficiency opportunities simply because you were on away on holiday!
Cleanup. Uninstall and delete programs that you no longer use on various types of hardware (computer, tablet, smartphone). This will free up space and likely speed up your devices.
Some of these might seem obvious, but sometimes it's the most basic, day to day tools that require the highest level of attention!
