Text-based forms of communication such as email and texting have all but taken over the modern business. However, sometimes it’s faster, easier, and more appropriate to pick up the phone and call. As such, voice communication, such as phone systems, remain a critical part of an organization’s ability to communicate with customers, vendors, and within itself.

Therefore, some businesses adopt VOIP, also known as internet-based phone service.
HIPAA and HITECH are closely related sets of regulations that strive to secure Personal Health Information (PHI) from unauthorized access, dissemination, and exploitation. While HIPAA (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) applies from 1996, the HITECH Act (Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act) only came into effect from 2009.

A printer represents a major investment for any business, and it may be tempting to make it last as long as possible. Like a car, a well-cared-for printer can last years. However, unlike a car, a printer is often subjected to the equivalent of running non-stop for seven or more hours per day. Printers wear out, and when they do, they cause problems.
Cloud services are all the rage with their ability to make powerful tools accessible and affordable. Both consumers and organizations are using the cloud in a variety of ways from storage to accessing virtual applications across a variety of devices. However, this rosy picture of cloud technology often leads businesses to look before they leap. The cloud represents a shift in not just technology, but the way businesses approach and utilize it.

Managed print services can save time and money by streamlining a company’s printing environment. However, in order to accomplish that, it’s crucial to know what already exists. An MPS assessment provides the information necessary to create a plan.
