Cheaping out on devices or network technology can cause frustrating glitches, slowdowns and errors that can cause massive slowdowns in productivity.
Utilize Cloud Services
Cloud services are available to replace servers, storage needs, email services and more. Cloud services also require little to no initial investment and are simple to setup and maintain for a small crew of employees.
