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.

      What You Need to Know About the Growing FinTech Market

      While the banking institutions have to deal with stringent lending regulations, MPLs are relatively new, and use what is known as FinTech (financial technology) to lend, collect, and distribute the capital they have. Consumers are starting to catch on, and in all, over $7 trillion is at risk of being displaced from the financial services market as a result of the growth of these organizations. MPLs are in an advantageous position because they are in a position where they utilize modern technology which insulate them from runaway systemic risk inherent in non-regulated financial transactions. Today, legislators are trying to figure out ways to regulate these organizations that won’t necessarily hinder their ability to innovate, but will work to keep them from taking advantage of consumers.

      What is FinTech?
      FinTech is technology used to track and manage finances. Your credit card, your PayPal account, and your personal account dashboard on your bank’s website is all FinTech. Using technology for finances isn’t new, but like many other technologies that have advanced as hardware and software improvements have been made, it’s just being repurposed outside of the traditional banking structure. FinTech today covers a whole lot of ground. So while banks have been doing this for a long time MPLs are backed with enough VC to start a small country and that capital allows these organizations to invest like no independent companies have been able to before. It often provides nice returns for a lot of investors. So while it is an affront to the banks, investors aren’t having to limit their sights to banks for financial services.

      Nowadays, most of the money is flowing through asset managers who are taking the capital that is entrusted to them by investors and investing it in non-traditional ways through technology. Defining FinTech can be a challenge in itself as the language differs substantially depending on where the company operates and what type of lending facility it is being used for, but as far as the need to adhere to federal regulations, new FinTech models present gray areas that are likely going to have to be addressed at local or state levels as regulations haven’t been implemented yet. Federal investigators have been looking at the sector for much of the past five years. So while the traditional banking structures are threatened by these restrictions on what they can and can’t do with the capital, the new marketplace lenders have been able to do more with less.

      Payday Loans
      Independent lenders have been around forever. Tales around the shylock that will come and pay people a visit if you don’t pay their bookie are all over the culture. One lending organization that has been very controversial is the payday loan market. In essence a person that needs fast money can take out a short-term, high-interest loan. If they pay it back by the next paycheck, no harm, no foul, the lender takes its small fee and everyone is happy.

      The bad things start happening when they can’t pay the whole loan back on time. Once the loan is past due, it is basically renewed with interest added. Most of the people that will utilize this service need a couple hundred dollars quick and can’t wait until their next paycheck. If the borrower can’t pay, they are making a situation that was already dire, much, much worse. These loans have been outlawed in several U.S. states for their predatory nature, but in the places that haven’t outlawed them, they are seeing new challenges in the form of FinTech lenders.

      FinTech lenders like LendUP and Elevate are now seeking to disrupt the payday lending industry by offering people who are in need of small, short-term loans, money on dramatically different terms. The biggest difference is that instead of resorting to heavy-handed, predatory tactics, they work with borrowers so they don’t get in too deep. So while the payday loans may have been convenient for the borrower, one misstep would put them up against it--the new FinTech model is helping people rebuild their credit through data driven analysis.

      Your IT is Your Business’ Health... We Can Help Take Care of It

      When you don’t feel well, or something’s wrong, you visit the doctor’s office. They examine you, diagnose the problem, and prescribe a solution. This process has been in place for millennia. Much more recently, it was also adopted by a very different sector: the information technology industry.

      When most people think about IT, their thoughts turn to a few stereotypes. They either think about the predictable phone calls to tech support that take forever and feel like they do little to move the recovery process along, or they think about the technician who comes in to repair something onsite, making a huge mess and causing a distraction. Naturally, this has made many business owners and users loath to call in IT services, preferring to make do as best they can with what they have. More often than not, this doesn’t end well for the business.

      This phenomenon has led to a shift in the IT service industry that is now possible thanks to the improved technology we have today and the capabilities it provides us. Now, instead of trying to fix a problem after the fact, we work to avoid the problem in the first place.

      Think about how many doctors spend a good portion of their office hours - it isn’t performing complicated surgeries and procedures on their patients. More often, it is spent checking up on their patients to make sure they’re remaining healthy. IT services now emulate this approach, saving everyone time and money by catching issues early.

      This approach is referred to as managed services, and in many ways, it works even better for your IT than it does for your physical health.

      For a predictable monthly fee, your technology is kept under the careful watch of your provider. This managed service provider, or MSP, can not only monitor your infrastructure remotely, they can often take action remotely to resolve the issue before it actually has an effect on your business’ operations. If that isn’t an option, your MSP can send out a technician to discreetly assist you at your location - much like a doctor making a house call would.

      Also, just as a doctor can proactively prescribe scripts to be refilled, your MSP can proactively review and update your existing solutions to further improve your technology experience.

      When you really consider it, a doctor’s purpose is to assist us in living as effectively as we can, despite the circumstances. Your MSP’s purpose is to do the same for your business’ efficacy by caring for your solutions. Reach out to Techworks Consulting to find out how else an MSP’s services could potentially benefit your business, and maybe even schedule an appointment for your next check-up.

      Tip of the Week: Using Microsoft Word to Edit a PDF Document

      Open the PDF
      The first step is to open up your PDF. You can do this by opening up Microsoft Word and selecting Open Other Documents from the menu to your left.

      _ib_word_pdf_1.jpg

      You should see the Open menu. In this, click on Browse.

      _ib_word_pdf_2.jpg

      Another message should appear informing you that Word will convert the PDF to an editable Word document. If you’re fine with this, click on OK.

      _ib_word_pdf_3.jpg

      You should see the PDF open up in Word. Before you can make any edits, you’ll have to disable protected view. Word opens up these documents in protected view because they could potentially be infected with malware or other threats. If you trust this document, you can click on Enable Editing to start making changes.

      Once you’ve done this, you’ll get another notification that shows you that Word will convert the PDF into a Word document. Just click on the checkbox or click OK to close this message.

      After you make your edits, you need to convert it back to a PDF format. You can do this by selecting File > Save As and setting the type to PDF via the dropdown menu under the file name. You should rename the document slightly as well before saving it in a file folder.

      Once you’re finished, the edited PDF should open up in your default PDF viewer, whether it’s Microsoft Edge or another program.
