When you just want IT to work!

There are a lot of computer shops out there that you can call up to fix an issue or install a piece of equipment. They might be able to get you out of crisis mode, but they aren’t looking at the full picture.

At Techworks Consulting, we understand business. We consult. We provide solutions to solve everyday challenges. We just happen to fix computers as well.

We believe (and have proven) that if you proactively manage technology, run maintenance religiously, and monitor a business network, everyday issues and downtime will be greatly reduced.

This is what makes us different than your typical tech support company. Sure, we can fix computer issues when you have them, but our specialty is preventing them in the first place.

      Tip of the Week: Introducing Evernote Templates

      What Are Templates?
      Evernote templates basically provide users with pre-built structures for their notes. This gives users a way of organizing information that may have previously taken more time than usual. These are particularly great if you are one who struggles with formatting each and every time you open a new note. Evernote also offers other templates on their website, and with a subscription to Evernote Plus, Premium, or Business, you can use formatting that you’ve used in the past to create your own custom template for future use.

      Applying Templates in Evernote
      Once you’ve found some templates you’d like to use, either from Evernote’s website or from one of your past notes, you can apply it to any new ones.

      • In Evernote, start a new note.
      • In the body of your note, click on Templates to see the ones you have saved.
      • From here, you have several options. You can search for templates, delete ones you don’t need, edit their names, or apply them to notes.
      • If you have Plus, Premium, or Business accounts, you can edit templates. To edit a template, follow this same process. Once you’ve finished making the edits, save it as a new template.
      • Plus, Premium, and Business users can also create their own templates this way.

      What are your thoughts on these changes to Evernote? If you don’t already use it, will this be enough to convince you? Let us know in the comments.

      Automation is Exciting, But your Employees Might Be Worried

      I bet that you could easily list three such processes off the top of your head, right now.

      These processes, while needed, can ultimately be more of an annoyance than anything else. There’s just so many to see to, and your efforts could really be better used working on another task.

      A Hands-Off Solution
      The technology that could help you the most is known as automation, where certain processes can be automatically seen to once another has been completed. This is already a common enough solution.

      For instance, many websites have a handy dialogue box to help you better find what you are looking for, returning contextual answers that may solve your problem without the need to call in one of the website’s human support team members.

      The infamous Clippy, the Microsoft Office Assistant that would pop up and offer assistance with certain processes in Office applications, could be considered a very basic use of automation. If the user began to format their document in a certain way, Clippy would appear and try to advise them on how to do it properly, along with other pieces of unsolicited advice.

      Fortunately, not all automation is quite as insistent or obtrusive as Clippy was. Most of it can take place entirely behind the scenes, eliminating many of the time-intensive requirements that hold back significant productivity.

      Automation solutions today offer three particular benefits to those that leverage them:

      • As we’ve mentioned, smaller tasks no longer require a user’s attention. This allows your employees to focus more on their bigger responsibilities in service to your customers and clients.
      • Instead of spending time scheduling certain tasks to move to the next employee in line to work on a project, the right automation can take care of this, well, automatically. As a result, it is easier to maintain productivity and a standard operating procedure.
      • Automation is also less error-prone than a human being would be, making it a faster and more accurate means of routing information to the applications that require it.

      Concerns
      Of course, no solution ever comes without any challenges, automation included. Some are more technical, but the major one that always comes up speaks to deeper human concerns.

      One the technical side, automation presents two major challenges:

      • Automation still requires at least some monitoring by a human resource to ensure that the automation is functioning properly, and is also delivering a better return on investment than a human can. Otherwise, it may not be worth the effort it takes to implement and, again, monitor. This is something that many delegate to an outsourced provider.
      • All of your different solutions and systems may not play so nicely with each other, making it necessary to integrate them into a single chain of automated processes. A technology professional from Techworks Consulting can assist you in selecting the right ones for your needs.

      Finally, the last (and in many ways, worst) obstacle you may encounter is pushback from your employees.

      Yes, I know, you’re actually making their jobs easier and allowing them to tackle more important responsibilities - but look at it from their perspective for a moment. If you don’t fully explain the benefits behind your choice to implement automation, they may see it as their job being replaced by a machine.

      Therefore, to avoid this, bring your employees into your implementation process. Make sure that they are made clear of the fact that this is to help the entire business, and that they are a part of that business. Giving them more significant tasks and responsibilities will also help with this.

      If you want assistance in planning and implementing your business automation strategy, give Techworks Consulting a call. We’d be happy to assist you with any of your technology needs. Call 631-285-1527 today!

      3 Ways Email Encryption Keeps Your Messages Safe

      Defining Encryption
      Encryption means that your data is scrambled in a way that obscures it from just anyone viewing it. What this means for email is that only the intended recipient can decrypt it, preventing those who might try to intercept it from being able to read it. For business email, this is particularly helpful.

      Security
      Security is the biggest reason to use encryption, and since it’s such an effective way to obscure data from prying eyes, it’s no wonder why. Many businesses utilize private or sensitive data, making it extremely important that it’s not exposed while in transit. In contrast to the way that hackers used to go about their business--breaking into networks and stealing data--many have opted instead to simply take a peek at the data while it’s moving from point A to point B. Encryption means they can’t do this anymore… well, they can, but they won’t see anything worth stealing due to the encryption scrambling the data.

      Compliance
      If your industry is one that must comply with regulations regarding data privacy, you might have to use encryption, so you can dodge hefty fines for not doing so. One of the best examples is the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or HIPAA. What this states is that health information and records absolutely cannot be shared without the patient’s consent, meaning that if a hacker were to steal this information, the company responsible for storing it would be in direct violation of HIPAA. If you use encryption to make sure this doesn’t happen, you can protect your business from liability for this and your users from having their personal information stolen.

      Efficiency
      If you take the right measures to protect your email systems, then you’ll make the entire process easier as a whole. If you take the time to install systems that automatically encrypt your email, then that means you won’t have to manually do it.

      Techworks Consulting can help you secure your email solution. To learn more, reach out to us at 631-285-1527.
