  • 8 Tips To Improve Business Efficiency

    Simple Tips All Businesses Can Utilize For Immediate Results

    , Search Marketing Manager

    You wake up, you get to work, and you go about your day as expected. Everything seems fine and normal. You know- business as usual.

    This is a very common narrative for many business leaders. However, in order to run and grow a business or business unit, continual effort should go toward improving business efficiency.

    Generally speaking- this is the act of making a decision to adopt processes and/or software that can help your business or business unit run more efficiently. Business leaders should seek to regularly analyze the overall efficiency and effectiveness of the business processes, and evaluate if changes should be made. (more…)

    Is Outsourcing Once Again the New Black?

    , Vice President of Strategic Services, All Covered

    It appears that outsourcing technology support in law firms is once again on the rise. Although cybersecurity and compliance seem to lead the charge in the motivation to outsource, I am talking to more and more firms every day about leveraging external sources to keep up with technology. No matter where I visit across the United States, when the conversation about outsourcing I.T. comes up with potential clients, I get flashbacks to the first time I read the Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens, “It was the best of times; it was the worst of times.” The conversation always seems to be divided between fairytales and horror stories; very often, the same vendor can either be the villain or the hero, based on their quality of service with that particular client. It’s a challenge in selecting the right outsourcing vendor, and quite frankly, there are no guarantees on how to make the correct choice. I often hear about many firms that find mixed results and end up migrating to several vendors very quickly. They find themselves continually in the same predicament as the evaluation criteria rarely changes between vendors selected. In essence, they are just trying to avoid the same problems they experienced with their previous incumbent. (more…)

    Windows 7 Reaching End-Of-Life, Time To Upgrade

    , Marketing Specialist

    On January 14, 2020, Microsoft will end support for its Windows 7 operating system as part of a long-planned shift to Windows 10. And a recent survey by Kollective revealed that two-thirds of businesses surveyed had yet to develop a strategy to migrate to Windows 10. One-fifth didn’t even know Microsoft was planning to withdraw support for Windows 7.[1] (more…)

    Is Advertising Dead? Tips For Creating A Compelling Content Strategy To Stand Out In A Crowded Market

    , Director of Marketing Communications (Global Workplace Hub Group & North America)

    Consumers receive between 3,500 to 5,000 messages every day. Advertising has now become white noise that frankly speaking, people find irritating – myself included. I’m aware of the irony here, given my chosen and much enjoyed profession! This is particularly true if the advertisement interrupts the thing you are trying to do. Just think about that video featured on your Facebook feed that you clicked on, only to find it interrupted mid-way through with an advertisement. I for one, immediately turn off the video, irritated that my viewing experience has been interrupted, albeit for only 60 seconds. (more…)

    A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to attend my first Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Global Conference & Exhibition. Professionals, from all over the world and within all sectors of the healthcare spectrum, converged in Orlando – from physicians and healthcare executives, to vendors and policymakers. I went in starry-eyed and full of excitement as the annual conference unfolded its keynotes, presentations, products, and people. For me, it was non-stop activity throughout the event but an eye-opening, memorable experience. It certainly made a lasting impression (and I’m not only referring to the physical impact it had, with almost 100,000 steps taken). (more…)

    Breaking Out Of Comfort Zones For New Possibilities

    , National Director of Healthcare Services

    Comfort Zones. We all have them. We approach our jobs in routine, ritualistic fashion, shop at the same stores, eat at the same restaurants, and solve problems in a way that feels the most comfortable to us. Many of us have seen, however, that when we break through them and challenge ourselves to try something new–learning a new skill for work, seeking a different type of vacation, trying out unfamiliar foods– the results can be dramatic.

    When I ask clients about their IT security strategy, I am generally surprised at the responses I receive. Most of the time, they give me a list of security program elements currently in play: firewalls, vulnerability management, IDS, anti-virus, etc.

    But just as a shopping list does not constitute a three-course dinner, a list of elements is not the same as an IT security strategy.  Nor is it the most optimal place to begin building one!

    The next most common response I get, is that there is no formal, documented security strategy in place. The company simply “does its best to keep hackers out and protect against breaches”. (more…)
