Spring is right around the corner, and that means everyone’s favorite activity: SPRING CLEANING! And Spring cleaning isn’t limited to the home either. It’s the perfect time to take a look at your office space. Not just cleaning the carpets or organizing your desk or giving the windows a good clean – but taking an inventory of your business technology as well.
What does your network closet or IT rack look like? Is it neat and organized with color coordinated patch cords that you can easily tell what they’re for and where they’re going? Or is it …. Well, let’s just say messy? A disorganized closet can cause cords to come unplugged and if you can’t tell where it goes and result in a service call from your vendor ($$).
You should also take a look at your security camera system. Are all the cameras up and working? Do any of the domes need to be cleaned off for a clear view? Check your system for blind spots that you may want to add another camera to cover, before an incident occurs that you cannot properly document.
Once their phone system has been installed, most business owners never think to have the system looked at unless there are issues. Some things to consider, however, are whether or not you are using the latest software edition and whether or not your system is configured the most up to date or fitting way for your business now.
Battery Back Up Systems
Spring and summer mean thunderstorms, and thunderstorms mean lost power. Make sure that your technology equipment (phone systems, security cameras, network switches, computers) are all using not just battery back ups, but properly sized ones based on power used and back up time desired.
Voice and Internet Bills
Lastly, you should take a look at your Comcast (or other phone and internet provider) bill. If it’s been several years since you’ve had your bill reviewed by your provider, chances are good that you can reduce your monthly bill by signing a new 2 year contract! Or, you may find that switching to a new technology for your voice, such as SIP trunks, can also save you money.
