While spring may be the time for rebirth and growth, it’s the new year that boasts brand new calendars, spreadsheets, and planners. A blank canvas waiting to be filled with the successes of a new year. It’s also a time for updating and change, and quite fittingly, it also happens to be Reboot Your Technology Month.
What better way to make the most of both Reboot Your Technology Month, and that brief (very brief – let’s be honest) window of time where everyone is still dedicated to their resolutions than to finally get a rock solid updated strategic IT plan in place to guide you through 2018, and beyond.
Having an updated strategic IT plan in place should address these five key areas taking the frustration and uncertainty out of budgeting for and managing your business’ IT needs. Making sure your technology needs are handled, you’ll be free to focus on what matters most – running your business.
Reboot Strategic IT Management
Businesses need to have an updated strategic IT plan in place regardless of their size. Your plan needs to take your business, as a whole, into account, and in order to be effective, it needs to be managed by technology professionals who understand your goals.
Reboot Communications Strategy
You need a variety of communication tools at your disposal, such as flexible phone solutions, online conferencing, and instant messaging. Having a strong updated communications presence is critical. Your clients must have complete access to your team whenever they’re needed, in a way that is convenient for them.
Reboot Collaboration Strategy
Your team must have the ability to collaborate with each other, regardless of their location. Productivity solutions, Microsoft Office 365 or Google’s G Suite, are great examples of collaboration suites that are revolutionizing the way businesses connect with their customers, and provide services without making a huge investment. And with the new updates collaboration suites keep adding, your company will discover greater easy and flexibility.
Reboot Cloud Strategy
The cloud is no longer a novelty. With its continual updating, it has become the benchmark and most important technology tool for businesses of all sizes. The cloud provides a cost-effective alternative instead of investing in expensive outdated hardware and software. The cloud has made it easy for your business to quickly adapt to the increased demands that keeps pace with your growing company.
Reboot Security Strategy
Security needs will always be an ongoing process. To protect your company updating your security would be the number one focus for every single business. Cybercrime is affecting businesses at an unprecedented rate, and it’s only going to get worse. Having an updated and detailed cybersecurity plan, along with an updated data protection strategy, which focuses on prevention and avoidance, will be the key to, not just surviving, but making 2018 your best year.
Give your business the green light for the New Year, with a strategic Reboot Your Technology IT plan that puts you in control of your technology, and the impact it will have on your business’ success.
