Hi *|FNAME|*,

Wow, February rushed by quickly and now it is March! We thought January was busy but February took our workload to the next level (see below for some of our adventures from last month)! A big thank you to all our techs for getting things done and apologies to any clients if we have been a bit slower to respond to things than usual.

Due to the increased workload, we have brought on Bevin Warren to our team of onsite support technicians. If you see Bevin, please say hi and make him feel welcome.

A lot of clients are upgrading to Office365 and think all their data is backed up and safe in the cloud. If you read Microsoft's terms and conditions you will see that they are just responsible for keeping their cloud systems running and you are responsible for your data. Yes they do offer some basic backup features but you need to look at third party solutions for a complete backup solution. This is the same for other services such as OneDrive, SharePoint, DropBox and Xero. Let us know if you are worried about your data as we can put some backup strategies in place for you.

Catch you all next month.

  • Updated routers at 10 sites for a clothing retailer.

  • Started the upgrade of the digital signage displays at a fast food retailer.

  • Setup a new wireless network for a client in the CBD.

  • As well as helping with Cisco and Meraki router upgrades, Ben installed some data cabling at offices in Morphett Vale, Lonsdale and the Adelaide CBD.

  • Ben and Bevin upgraded desktop systems for a large financial institution
