It’s the data flowing between your business’s devices (and back and forth […]
We love to listen to your opinions – and to share our own!
Welcome to our IT blog! Here you could find a thing or two about current technological and worldly affairs that could affect business.
Here are a few of our observations. Let us know what you think!
I bet there are a few people coughing and spluttering in your office this week. Just as you have to be careful of people spreading illnesses to each other, it’s exactly the same with your IT. It only takes one person to click one link in one dodgy email… and your entire business can become […]
Office 365 contains lots of useful features you might not be aware of. One of our favourites is Microsoft Translator, which has recently been added to Word, Excel and PowerPoint. You can find out more about it in our brand new video: And if you want to know anything at all about Office 365, […]
This is going to be a great decade for technology. No wonder Microsoft has been so keen to kill off its outdated software. Windows 7, Office 2010 and a load of server software all die this month.

Office 365 contains lots of features you might not know about yet. One of our new favourites is Ink Replay. It lets you replay exactly what happened when you scribbled a note on a Word document or PowerPoint. Great for remembering what you were thinking at the time. Or putting extra emphasis on slides during […]
We loved Windows 7. But now it’s old hat. Its time has come. And on 14th January, Microsoft kills it for good. (long tear slowly drips down from eye) If you have a single Windows 7 machine in your business after this date, you’ll be at increased risk of hacking and GDPR data breaches. So […]
Possibly not the advice you were expecting from your IT support company. After all, haven’t you been told for a long time to change your password on a regular basis? Well, that advice changed in April. Microsoft previously advised all passwords were changed every 60 days. Now it says that’s no longer necessary. In fact, […]
This doesn’t make for comfortable reading. The latest data shows that 72% of UK organisations still fall short of their GDPR requirements. That’s 18 months after the legislation became law. Oops. GDPR compliance is essential for businesses of all sizes. No matter how big or small, you’ve got to get your data protection together. The […]
