Disaster recovery

http://www.kentonline.co.uk/gravesend/news/northfleet-fire-17464/

Fire and disasters can happen at any time, which is so devastating and can have major effects in your business and your life. So it is vital to make sure you have a policy in effect that you can get your business up and running as quickly as possible. Your clients can understand this but they have a business to run and will need services or supplies while you are rebuilding. If they have to use a different supplier they might be persuaded to move if you do nothing about this or have a emergency plan to cope with this disaster. It might not be a fire it could be a technology disaster like a virus or your computer failing to give you a disaster that you have not planned for

Computers can be replaced but what can not be replaced is the information and documents that you have built up dealing with your clients, So where do you start? Well this is where we can advise you on the best options to back up and protect your data. Consider if you had a back up copy where you can install this on new machines to keep your clients, I know if I was a client and your had a back up of my data I would stay by you because you have valued me as a client.  It would give me enough assurance to make sure you had a disaster plan in this eventuality. this will give me the confidence that you will get back to normal as quickly as possible.

I am sure some people believe they have a plan in case of disaster, but if you would like someone from the IT industry to come in and check your plan I would be willing to check this and give you a second opinion.

In today technology world you need to be extra cautious against  things that make your business fail and give your competitors  a chance to win over your clients that you have taken so long to build trust. If you do not think it will happen just look online to see how many things that can happen to your business. It is time to take action and become a proactive manager  and plan for these disasters. instead of reacting to problems when they happen.

Upgrading your PC

by MPRAdmin in Uncategorized

So it is time to upgrade or your machine has failed. So what do you do go for a bargain laptop or get quality advice on the machine you need.  It would be nice to buy a basic machine and it does everything you need. We have come across this time after time where we go into premises after they have bought cheap machines only to find out that it was not fit for their purpose.

We look at your current applications you use and find out what exactly you would like to use this for. if you are looking for a cheap computer, you will find 6 months down the track that it will no longer be a great buy.  We understand networks, computers and more importantly people  and how they use their machines on a day to day basis. We look at the whole picture and can point out problem areas that you might need advice or solutions for. When it come down to computers it is like cars or sofa’s, you need to know what it is going to be used for and how good it is for you before deciding on a cheap machine that will not fill all your needs. We all do not go and buy the cheapest car to drive we look at features and budget.

So when you come to look at replacing an old machine or buying a new computer, please do not go to places like pc world or your local computer shop. Talk to us about your needs and we will advise you on  a machine that will do the job and last the distance for you and your company. For help and advice and to find out more please contact us on 08000302030 option 2

West Kent B2B 30th April 2014 The River Centre Tonbridge

by MPRAdmin in Exhibitions

 

This was our first time at the River Centre in Tonbridge. We found the organisers to be friendly and willing to help you if you need anything. The set up took a little time moving the stuff from the car and setting it upstairs. On the day of the event Nicki and Mike came along to support our stand and reach out to as many people we can. The footfall could of been a bit better but the quality of the people who visited us on our stand was fantastic. If they make a few tweaks I can see them using this on a regular basis. The car parking needs attention and i think there could of been a bit more of advertising on the radio before hand but overall we had a good day and gathered a few leads and caught up with people who we knew.  We were the main bag supplier of the event and saw plenty of bags being carried around. So let’s hope they will look at our brochure and call us when they need an IT company that can provide solutions to your IT problems. Here are some of the Photos of the Event.

Commercial Office Install

by MPRAdmin in Uncategorized

If you are moving to another office or would like a new computer connected to to existing network there are several things to consider before going ahead. There are two options to go hard wired or possibly install a Wireless link to your network. The hardwired method is definitely the more secure to stop people trying to use your network. If you are not sure that your wireless option is secure and your files are protected this method is the best way forward.  We can offer two options it is all down on how you manage your network and the cost is another option you should look at.

The pictures below are just an example of what we can do if you need someone to install this correctly and tidy. We can make sure that the trunking and cable is secure and also give you the option to have more expansion of your network points  depending  your configuration.  I would suggest having a chat to us about your move and what options are available.  We can make your office move as painless as possible if you need it done on the weekend we can be there to get you up and running as fast as possible. If you are looking to do it once and do it right  it makes sense of what you need to do.
