Has your business been planning to go paperless for a while?
I bet during lockdown you did a pretty good job of switching to digital though, didn’t you?
So ahead of a proper return, now is the perfect time to put your paperless office plan into action. You’ve already got some great habits in place.
But what do you need to consider for when things start to get back to normal?
Well first, you need a reliable cloud-based file storage system. You need to consider who needs access to what information, and what will be compatible with the applications you already use within the business.
Then you should probably consider how you get all those paper folders online.
And you obviously need really good security measures to keep everything protected. And constantly backed up, just in case.
Remember, this is exactly the kind of planning that we excel at, as your strategic partner.
Isn’t it frustrating when that message appears? Do you want to install updates?
Typically, you’ve just sat down, full of enthusiasm for the day ahead… when an update message pops up.
So what do you do? If you’re like most people you’ll ask it to remind you later. Nothing is going to stop you from tackling the 101 jobs you had planned for today.
But then tomorrow? Later.
The next day? Later.
Day after that? Later.

Did you know there’s a major new computer problem on the horizon?
Tech experts are calling it the 2020 problem, and it’s predicted to affect half of all businesses in the UK.
In January Microsoft is ending the life of some of its most popular business software, including Windows 7.
And when it does, there will be no more support available. Not only does that put businesses at risk of downtime and cyber-attacks. It also means that those who fail to upgrade will no longer be compliant with GDPR.
Upgrading your IT system is a smart business decision that doesn’t have to cost a fortune. It’ll be more cost effective and create less downtime to do it now; compared to leaving it to the last minute.
