      How a Manila Folder Could Be Holding Your Business Back

      Of course an office without paper at all is likely impossible, but some businesses have made impressive efforts toward relaxing their reliance on paper. They are able to do this with technology. At Symmetric Engineering Group, we work with many technologies that provide substantial opportunity for today’s enterprises to limit the amount paper they use. Technologies such as mobile devices, cloud-based storage and software, and well-maintained document management databases can drastically reduce the amount of paper your organization uses.

      Take, for instance, your HR department’s records. Were you aware that, on average, an employee’s HR folder contains 29 pieces of paper? All the administrative and accounting information like receipts, invoices, tax forms, as well as other administrative records, can all pile up rather quickly. Even the number of paper documents that a small business goes through can be astonishing, especially when you consider that we now have the technology available to digitize every document your organization handles.

      The deployment of a secure cloud-based database is much more viable today than ever before, and can present dramatic cost savings over the traditional office setup. Using mobile devices and a powerful access control software, your organization can reduce waste, meet the goals of your green-initiative, and improve efficiency. Comparatively, a full file cabinet of paper records comes with an average of $20,000 worth of expenses. By scanning and cataloging this information digitally, you are looking at a healthy cost reduction, with a reasonably rapid ROI.

      When considering storage, storing your organization’s documents in the cloud can improve that information’s security. A recent study by IDG Cloud Computing found that that 94 percent of small or medium-sized businesses that adopted cloud computing claimed to have experienced data security improvements from a move to the cloud.

      Increased efficiency, cost reduction, and improved security are three pretty good ways to leverage this technology to improve your business; and, all of it will meet the goals of your green initiatives. If you are looking to trim the heft off your business data storage, while reducing your organization’s carbon footprint, consider calling Symmetric Engineering Group today.

      Tip of the Week: Simple Device Turns Your Car Into a Wi-Fi Hotspot

      The further along microprocessors get, the smarter cars get. This correlation can largely be seen through the culture, but people have a different relationship with their cars than they do with, say, their washer and dryer. Besides their homes, their car is their largest investment, so they look to get the most value out of it that they can.

      One company, Zubie, has developed a way to use the existing computing infrastructure that is present in most non-electric cars to get some of the functionality that many people would pay tens of thousands of dollars to receive in their new car. It does this by providing tracking and analytics, car diagnostics, and if you so choose, Wi-Fi.

      The dongle connects to your car’s diagnostic port and immediately begins tracking the car’s movement. The Zubie tracks the route your car takes and also measures the acceleration, speed, braking, time you drive, cost of fuel used, and more. It also uses the VIN number, the diagnostic information, and the mileage to give you a relatively accurate representation of what your automobile is worth. There are even features for those who have teen drivers, for parents who want a little peace of mind when their teenager is borrowing their wheels.

      You can see that the Zubie has some practical value for the individual user, but how can you leverage this simple device for your business? The first thing you’ll want to do is to set up your Zubie Business account at http://biz.zubie.co. Once you have submitted the basic information about your business, Zubie will customize your experience based on business type and size. Select the notifications you would like to see and install the Zubie mobile app on your devices.

      Zubie will then track and relay drivers’ information to a central hub, all the while creating a leaderboard (to engage drivers in friendly competition with the other drivers in your company), complete trip histories for every Zubie key in use, a comprehensive driver scorecard for each automobile, and a useful snapshot of all the driving activity your company has done over the week or the month. With the ability to add users and admins the Zubie for Business interface it can make your drivers and dispatchers more efficient, while reducing the strain put on your fleet.

      Whether you are an individual who wants to know your family’s whereabouts or you run a business that utilizes a fleet of vehicles, the Zubie is a great solution to increase your car’s intelligence and get more out of your vehicles. The Zubie is just one of many Internet-connected devices that can help businesses get more out of their existing resources. To learn more about Internet of Things devices that can benefit your business, call us today at (813) 749-0895.

      The Easiest Way to Manage Your IT Happens to Also Be the Best

      The differences between break-fix IT and managed IT services are as noticeable as the differences between day and night. Break-fix IT is basically the bare-bones IT maintenance that only takes care of technology when it breaks down. Managed IT differs by providing a proactive solution that prevents problems in the first place, saving your organization time and money in the long run. To prevent problems from happening, your IT assets are monitored for resource usage in order to minimize downtime.

      At first glance, business owners might see break-fix as the better option because they are using funds to fix actual problems. However, preventing problems from happening in the first place is much cheaper in the long run. Major issues that can happen to an IT infrastructure have a significantly higher risk related to them, and cost more to resolve if left unattended.

      Let’s take a look at the actual costs of break-fix IT versus managed IT services. Break-fix relies on someone identifying the problem and resolving it, but there are other fees that can rack up too and break your budget. Travel time, replacement parts, and other expenses can exceed your expectations and you’ll wind up spending much more than initially anticipated. Additionally, one of the most unexpected results of technology failing is often forgotten about: the downtime, which compromises productivity.

      Employees using technology that isn’t working to the accepted standard aren’t going to help your business function any better, which leads to lost revenue. Keep in mind that you’re also paying your employees regardless of whether or not they’re getting anything done in the office, so if they can’t work due to ineffective technology, you’re wasting money on them.

      Plus, what if the problem that happens isn’t just a singular workstation, and is instead a huge problem that spans the entirety of your infrastructure? If something happens that prevents your workforce from accessing critical data and applications, it’s a situation where you have workers sitting around, twiddling their thumbs until things are back in proper working order. In most cases, this is until your IT department sorts out the issue. In retrospect, it would have been easier to keep the issue from happening in the first place, instead of letting countless dollars bleed from your IT budget due to downtime and unnecessary expenses.

      Enter managed IT services, which prevent issues from escalating into major problems, allowing you to have a predictable IT budget.

      In their most basic form, managed IT services are designed to actually save your business money by taking out the unpredictability of managing technology. Instead of paying a large amount of money at a seemingly random moment, you pay smaller amounts over a longer period of time to make sure that you don’t experience major IT problems. Downtime can practically be eliminated, which makes sure that your business can continue operations without suffering from issues like data loss, hardware failure, and more.

      Symmetric Engineering Group offers managed IT services that are designed specifically for your business. You pay us a flat rate and receive valuable technology assistance as per your service level agreement. Together, we can help your business flourish by keeping technology troubles to a minimum.
