Simple Tips #3 – Changing Your Broadband

Changing your home internet service provider is a fairly simple process. Changing your business broadband is a different matter.

Planning ahead can help you avoid potentially costly issues.

Unlike a home network, business networks usually have servers and company email domains.  Poor planning can leave your business with no email or internet access for several days. Here is a quick list of things to think about before you make the change.

Simple tips – Why you should try switching it off and on again!

Let me debunk a myth, “Have you restarted your computer?”  Most people think that’s what IT companies say when they have no idea what’s wrong. It’s not true. The reason we say it to you is because it’s often the quickest way to get you running normally again.

Computers get confused too.

Imagine you were playing Scrabble. Ten minutes into the game you notice all the E’s and T’s are sitting on the sideboard. You could just try and add the letters back into the bag, but it would mean the game wasn’t quite right from the beginning. Your best option is to clear the board and start again. That is very much like a computer crash or software issue. Something went wrong and to fix it you need to start again. You could try closing the program (application) and re-opening, but just keep in mind that’s a bit like adding the missing letters half way through the game and may not solve the problem.

Simple Everyday Computer Tips

To kick off the New Year we thought we’d introduce a series of everyday computer tips to help take away some of the headaches of owning and using a computer.

The first one in the series looks at the problem of a slow computer.

If there are any specific IT or computer problems you’d like us to include in this series, drop us a line and we’ll see what we can come up with.

Your Operating System (Windows) is a like a soup! A thick minestrone.
One of the most common complaints people make about their computer is that it’s slow. If your computer is over a year old it will start to slow down, but it doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with it and you can speed it up again – a bit anyway!

Two great new features of Sage 2016

If you have ever allocated a payment to the wrong invoice, you will know how difficult it can be to correct that mistake (get everyone out of Sage, find the payment then delete it). Sage 2016 now allows you to un-allocate the payment with the click of a button.
If you have Sage Accounts version older than 2015 one of the best features you’re missing out on is the ability to schedule automatic backups without the need to logout your users first.
