We are all familiar with the “back to school” time of year. Summer is ending and it is time to focus on another “school” year. Of course, the ultimate goal is to do enough preparation work so that you can start the new year in the best position possible. With this in mind, let’s discuss some “back to school” items for your technology.
Always important is making sure you have all the necessary materials and tools — especially updated technology.
Maybe it’s time to upgrade your computer, tablet, smartphone, etc., to help better achieve your technology goals for the rest of the year. Or perhaps the Internet connection for your office and home, which is clearly a critical a component of your technology infrastructure given your day-to-day business needs, might also be in need of an upgrade to the bandwidth (speed) of the connection.
Also, make sure you’re up-to-date with the latest features and tools of the systems used by your firm.
What Your Peers Are Reading
A new feature or update have been introduced while you were on vacation, so take a moment and review the recent announcements/messages from your core technology partners. Maybe you need to watch a webinar again that highlights the new features for one of the systems. You definitely don’t want to miss out on any efficiency opportunities simply because you were on vacation.
