If it’s good for the client, good for the employee and good for the company; then it’s the right thing to do. I’ve been hearing some form of this saying for more than 10 years here at Usherwood. as I recall back to the first time I heard it, which was during my interview as a hopeful candidate for a service position, this was something that struck me as very insightful and was one of the aspects that made me want to work for Usherwood right from the start.
Printers and copiers are critical parts of the workplace, and they are part of the team. Part productivity, part cheerleader, part admin support, your printer, and copier can make a big difference in how your office gets the work done.
Hacking printers is becoming a huge problem for companies of all sizes. Printer hacking is easier than other network access points and can cross brands and industries.
Printer hacking can involve stolen data, document theft, broken hardware, disconnected networks, and more. Updated printers and multifunction machines that are specifically network connected are major vulnerabilities.
The COVID-19 virus has forced many on premise businesses to transition into a remote workforce. By now you know if you have been successful in this transition or if you are continuing to struggle. Through planning and process Usherwood was prepared to clear that first hurdle without much issue. Utilizing the Microsoft Teams as our unified communications platform, we have been able to securely collaborate using voice, video and document sharing to continue our day to day operations without interruption. What about the next hurdle?...
Of all the things to come out of our time at home due to the COVID-19 crisis I think it’s fair to say that “Zoombombing” was not something any of us saw coming. I include Zoom themselves in that. With Zoom use up 20x what it was prior to our current circumstances they are feeling the pains that come with security that wasn’t quite ready for commercial primetime. See this link for more:
Managed services can change the game in your business. Implementing managed IT services and other electronic outsourced systems like print management can shift the stress of overseeing operational departments off of your shoulders.
Figuring out how to optimize operations and cost while troubleshooting issues is a big deal and a challenge that you don’t have to face as a business owner consistently.
You can change the situation with managed services, but you want to get the right managed service provider – like any assistance company, they are not all created equal.
Every business needs to optimize operations. That starts with office equipment and moves into procedures and productivity. Starting at ground level – with top-level equipment that meets and exceeds your needs- means that you build a foundation for success in your business. Today is the day to get started.
What if I told you that you that you could bring your office home with you? What if that included not only your PC, but your ability to communicate with and see your co-workers and contacts all from your desk? What if I told you that even the ability to fax was within your reach all from the comfort of your home and without additional hardware?
Copiers are a critical part of the office landscape, and leasing one means that eventually, you’ll come to the end of that agreement. What do you do next? That depends on where you are with growth, capital, and costs and income.
However, it’s helpful to have some basic guiding steps to get you to the other side of your office equipment ownership.
So, your organization has decided to work from home, likely in response to COVID-19 and the pandemic we are all facing. I know, you were expecting pajama pants, slippers, and total comfort. Turns out that, while yes you have those things, it’s just like regular work. Only now it feels like you were separated from the group, almost as if you did something wrong. On top of that? What about security? Are we not facing the ever-present threat of that bad guys trying to get at our personal info, and other protected data?
