      Tip of the Week: Optimize Your Computer By Taking Care of the Clutter

      For this week’s tip, we’ll discuss ways in which your organization can cut down on the immense amount of digital clutter on your PC, ranging from how to organize the contents of your workstation, to what you can do with your old mobile devices and other unnecessary hardware you have lying about.

      Organize Your Workstation’s Files and Network Drive
      Is your desktop filled with all sorts of files and icons that make navigating your workstation more difficult than it should be? This is a common problem, and it’s important to stay organized so you can be productive, especially if you utilize an on premise shared network drive. Make sure that all of your employees know the proper protocol for storing files before they are allowed to upload files to the shared drive.

      You can work with the business technology experts at Symmetric Engineering Group for help if you feel your current system needs some work. Whether you need to better the organization process for stored data, or control who has access to things, we can assist you to make sure it’s done right, and backed up. 

      Remove Unnecessary Programs and Applications
      As time passes, certain applications will lose their value. This is due to a number of factors, such as changes in internal policy, the size of your workforce, and so on. Perhaps you’ve found a better solution that suits your needs, but you forgot to uninstall the old one. Old programs that are no longer useful can take up valuable network space, and worse yet, they could become vulnerable if they aren’t kept updated. We recommend performing a network audit to determine exactly which applications are being used, and how often they’re accessed.

      Properly Dispose of Unused Devices
      When a device’s life cycle meets its end, or it’s simply outclassed by another, more potent device, it’s natural to replace it with something that better meets your organization’s needs. However, when you regularly refresh your hardware, you’ll wind up with plenty of extra devices just collecting dust. Even worse, these devices might be completely functional. You don’t want to simply throw away old computers, laptops, and mobile devices. This is bad for the environment as there are harmful metals and elements. It also puts your business at risk because your data may still be on the device even after deleting it. It’s best to have professionals purge the data and recycle old hardware.

      That said, it never hurts to keep an extra workstation on hand just in case something bad happens to an employee’s computer in the line of duty. Still, all other devices that are no longer in use should be wiped of any data that’s on them (ask us if you have questions on how) before being recycled.

      The Future of Business is One Without Cash

      This development in cashless payments has led customers to expect certain conveniences from businesses. For example, the frustration people face when they go to use an ATM for some spare cash and the card reader doesn’t work. Because of situations like these customers also expect that businesses will be able to adapt to changes in cashless payment technologies, using smartphones, wearables, and other devices. It's predicted that by the end of 2017, over $60 billion will be made in mobile payments; not a sales figure to scoff at.

      In order to take advantage of this incredible opportunity, businesses want to implement solutions that allow their clients to manage their payments in as many different forms as possible; particularly the use of cashless payment systems. By keeping the amount of physical cash moving through your company to a minimum, you’ll be able to cut down on major problems involved with it.

      Most notable is that you won’t have to deal with paper ledgers that could easily be falsified or forgotten about, throwing off your records and making them unreliable. Digital payment systems make it easy to keep records of transactions, and in general make keeping track of funds much more efficient.

      If your business relies on handling cash, perhaps it’s time to consider making the switch to a more versatile payment system. Symmetric Engineering Group can help your business analyze all of the options available to you, as well as the best path to get there. To learn more, reach out to us at (813) 749-0895.

      3 Compelling Ways that Managed IT Benefits Your Business

      Outsourcing your company’s IT management needs offers a unique return on investment by taking expensive and time-consuming tasks and handing over this responsibility to someone else; notably, a third-party IT service provider like Symmetric Engineering Group. Through the use of remote monitoring and management technology, professional technicians keep an eye on your organization’s network and address problems as if they were in the office themselves. To give you some examples of how great managed IT can be, we’ll explain how three noteworthy services can benefit your organization.

      Remote Patching and Maintenance
      Have you ever tried to actually update each and every one of your business’s workstations or servers with the latest patches and security updates? It can take hours, or even days to complete. Worse yet, these updates are practically necessary if you want to ensure that all of your business technology works as intended. If you don’t take care to implement them as soon as they are released, you run the risk of being subject to various developing threats and vulnerabilities.

      Outsourcing the responsibility of managing and maintaining your technology via an RMM tool is ideal, as you will no longer have to worry about finding the time to update your systems. This also helps make your systems more secure in the long run.

      Remote Management Means Fewer On-Site Visits
      One of the most beneficial aspects of remote technology maintenance is that you don’t have to wait for a technician to arrive before handling various technology troubles. Instead of dealing with travel time, the majority of your problems can be resolved simply by remoting into your PC and fixing the problem.

      Break-fix IT companies don’t want you to know this, as they benefit by charging you for on-site maintenance. Managed service providers like Symmetric Engineering Group don’t want to do that unless you absolutely need on-site assistance, so you can count on us to always be conscientious about your business’ technology management by proactively preventing problems that require on-site visits from happening in the first place.

      Despite this, it’s important to remember that it’s impossible to keep all problems from happening. Eventually, you might be unfortunate enough to run into a problem that can’t be fixed through remote access. When this happens, you can count on our technicians to be there when you need us most.

      Responsive Threat Detection
      There are countless threats that exist on the Internet, and they threaten your business every day. With troublesome entities like viruses, spyware, and ransomware, your business needs a platform in which to mitigate its exposure to these threats. Understanding that your business is a target is the first step toward protecting it.

      How would your business react to a data breach? Would you be able to sustain operations following a crippling leak? You don’t have time to keep track of all the latest developments, let alone monitor your entire network. Hiring a third party like Symmetric Engineering Group can take these responsibilities off of your shoulders and ensure that you stay focused on what matters most: running your business.

      If you’re sick and tired of dealing with troublesome IT issues, reach out to Symmetric Engineering Group at (813) 749-0895. We’ll make sure that your business stays in action through preventative IT maintenance and management.
