Upgrading to an SSD

Slow running PCs are costing businesses hundreds of hours every year in lost productivity. Even new PCs will run slowly if they're powering energy-zapping applications like Adobe, Sage and large Outlook inboxes. Upgrading your Hard Disk Drive to a Solid State Drive is an affordable way to give your PC a boost.

Technology Audit

The technology you use in business shouldn’t control you. With our Technology Audit we’ll discover the hardware, software and applications you’re currently using, the versions and warranty status. We’ll combine this with a strategic review of your business, the technology you use now, and your plans for the future.

We’ll then put together a no-obligation report including our recommendations to cover any required updates, and how you can use technology to increase productivity, be more efficient and scale up as you grow.

Top Tip: Dual Monitors

It might not be the most efficient way of doing things, but many of us have to multitask during our working day. Replying to emails whilst also drawing plans. Comparing details between products. Responding to website enquiries whilst designing email campaigns.

Setting up an additional monitor connected to your PC is straightforward for anyone with a bit of technical know-how. The price of monitors has been steadily falling over the last few years so you can now pick up a decent HD monitor for under £150.
