Technology is at the heart of businesses all over the world. At LogicBarn, we certainly know the importance of technology! Which is why it’s such a nightmare when you find that the tech in your office just isn’t running at the speed that it used to. There’s nothing more frustrating than trying to get some important work done and fighting against your tech every step of the way. So here are just a few tips from us at LogicBarn for how you speed up your tech.
Are you maintaining your computers?
When things are really busy then it’s not at all uncommon for certain routine tasks to get left by the wayside. One of the most commonly neglected tasks is regular maintenance of the office devices. From desktop PCs to laptops to mobile devices, you need to be sure that you’re taking the best possible care of your technology. Simple things like running tests to ensure optimal performance, installing recommended updates, and fixing any existing issues can make a huge difference to the speed that your computers are running at. Letting you focus on much more important things.
Are your devices secure?
As an IT support agency, we’re no strangers to computers that are infected with viruses and malware. Far too often people don’t bother to consider whether or not their computers could be infected with malicious software. Always make sure that you have an antivirus program installed and that no one in your business is downloading anything from sources that aren’t 100% trustworthy.
Are you wasting space?
When it comes to business computing, a lot of things end up saved to various hard drives and shared drives. One important question you need to ask yourself is: does it all need to be there? So many business computers that we see are full of stuff that simply doesn’t need to be there that does nothing but slow down the devices. This is even true with things like shared drives. It’s always a good idea to have a bit of a clear out of the data on your devices from time to time.
Is it a network problem?
Most of the time, when businesses are dealing with performance issues, they assume that it’s a localised problem. However, it may not actually be your computer at all. There’s a chance that the issue could be your browser or your network. Things like clearing cache data from your browser can make a surprising difference.
