We're Seeking an IT Support Professional

business1Cultural fit. It is an interesting concept and one that can mean different things to different people. Here at ContactPC cultural fit means knowing your stuff and knowing it well. It means keeping ahead of industry trends and what is coming down the IT pipeline. It means having an easy smile, an unrelenting tenacity and the innate desire to hit a home run with the first crack of the bat (Impossible? Maybe. But we sure admire the swing). To us, cultural fit means getting it right the first time whether you are on an emergency call at client site, spinning your magic on the work bench or stealthily handling a remote job.

Cultural fit. It’s about expertise, integrity and just being a decent person.

If all this makes sense to you and you are interested in learning more about ContactPC’s employment opportunities, we would love to talk to you.

Getting That PC in Shape for the New Year

Publication1Picture the New Year. Time to get in shape. Eat clean. Take your vitamins. Work out. And think of the way it will feel when your body is functioning ideally and every task in your life seems to flourish because of it; and then consider how your healthy body will positively affect nearly every aspect of your life and enhance your daily productivity.

Doesn’t it feel good to be a fine-tuned machine? Well your computer thinks so, too.

We all know the importance of physical fitness and most of us have a decent understanding of what it generally takes to get us there. But computers, like humans and our health, are prone to failure due to inattentiveness, procrastination and a perceived general lack urgency. Even though incredibly effective solutions are just a phone call and few hours of work away, many individuals and businesses sit idle up until the moment they are forced to hit the IT panic button. Tough lesson; but guess what. Systems and processes simply don’t fix themselves and the neglect of even a single office computer can threaten their security and take down the entire network. I have seen it time and time again.

Hiring an expert technician to whip your IT systems into shape is like employing Jillian Michaels to oversee your personal fitness regimen, giving you a head start and an edge over your competition. And a talented tech’s results require virtually no effort on your part, are almost immediate and are much more sustainable, even for very complex organizational needs.

This stuff isn’t radical or out of left field. Research suggests that nearly every business today would gain an advantage by fortifying its technology. Streamlined systems and enhanced physical health are the gifts that keep on giving; yielding speedy processes, improved production and increased profit margins. The modest initial investment can yield massive results.

The Most Intriguing Time of Year

I am not sure what astrologists or psychologists have to say about the subject, but autumn’s perfect sensory storm never fails to inspire me.

The jubilant rustling of crimson and amber leaves as they trip down the street, carelessly teasing everything they touch along the way. How the morning somehow looks brighter and more promising the day after we roll our clocks back. The anticipation of the coming holidays and all the moving parts that accompany them. And with the year’s end steadily approaching, the reflection on decisions and events of months past (both at home and at work) and how those choices affect our options and operations today.

Yes, now is a kinetic time of year rife with reflection, anticipation and action. Not coincidentally – and actually coincidingly – it is also the ideal time of year to address your changing computer technology needs.

Similar to calculating whether your home is capable of accommodating an onslaught of holiday guests, it is important that one takes the time now to assess his or her computer’s capacity to house upcoming technology improvements, many of which are likely just months away. This analysis is important to individual users, but is exponentially more so for those offices and businesses with multiple employees and aging systems. The cost and waste of inefficient technology is not cyclical like the changing seasons; it just gets worse and worse with every passing month.

While you are breathing in the crisp fall air, take a few minutes to consider leveraging some of the remaining yearly budget to gear yourself with the new technology, enhanced computer systems and program upgrades you and your business need.

Autumn brings with it an eagerness to engage in the beauty of today and the possibilities of tomorrow. Autumn spurs you on with movement and inspires you to prepare yourself and your systems for the future. Indeed, autumn to me is the time of year to honor the glory of nature and embrace the wonder of innovation.

Autumn, in all its splendor, is the time to act.
