Windows XP End-of-Life
Are you ready? Have you upgraded yet? As of April 8th 2014, Microsoft server operating systems Windows Server 2003, Small Business Server 2003 and Windows XP will no longer be supported by Microsoft.
What does this mean? Basically, you will not be supported as Microsoft will stop issuing security updates and patches for these three operating systems, rendering it highly vulnerable to attack. If you encounter technical problems after this date, Microsoft will no longer provide support.
On the plus side, If you use Small Business Server 2008 and 2011 you will continue to be supported until about 2021. If your in need of some guidance, please call to arrange a free audit for your network to see what action you need to take.
CRM and Small Businesses
It’s a New Year, therefore it’s time to set a few new business goals. If you’re trying to increase productivity, increase sales leads and become more data driven then CRM is for you.
CRM is a powerful tool in the right hands, but it’s not just for large businesses. In fact, it makes perfect sense for a small business to run CRM, it will cut out wasted efforts and increase efficiency to no end. Guess work is NOT an option for smaller businesses with limited resources.
These days, business owners are focusing on data driven decision-making rather than going by pure instinct. This allows for less time wasting and more action, ROI is king , gambling is not!.
CRM data allows businesses to provide bespoke offerings to different customers and provide highly targeted marketing campaigns to the end user. Want to make your life easier? Then take the guess work out of your business decisions with CRM.
