6 Security Predictions for SMBs in 2017

6 Security Predictions for SMBs in 2017

Office technology has been developing rapidly since the days of the basic single-screen setup. As laptops and email became normal, the idea of everyone being in the same room began to feel outmoded. The modern office is a dynamic place that can span the globe, and the continual development and adoption of cloud computing has continued the evolution. While this is great news in terms of adding freedom and dynamism to the way businesses work, this increased reliance on technology also makes the impact of a potential cyber-attack on your business increasingly destructive. While updates to digital systems can open new doors for possible security threats, implementing new technologies can create previously unthought of ways to access your data, even if the intention is to tighten security. With the number of new technologies that will continue to emerge in 2017, businesses will come under increased threat from a number of areas. 1.

Maximise your ROI with Website Localisation

Maximise your ROI with Website Localisation

According to independent research firm Common Sense Advisory (CSA), web users are four times more likely to purchase from a company that communicates in their own language. Reaching and communicating with multilingual customers via a localised website is vital if a company wants to invite trade or business on an international level. The ability to communicate your brand message, service and USPs online in the mother tongue of the target audience is essential to a company’s success. Language vs Content As translation agency Global Voices points out, when it comes to localising websites it’s key to ensure that the language you use accurately communicates the key message you want your clients to take away. Don’t assume that rendering the original page content in word-for-word translation is enough—you also need to ensure that the content is relevant, understandable and in line with the user’s cultural context. Professional translators can help account for cultural language variants, examples of which include Spanish (Latin America versus Spain), French (France versus Senegal) or Portuguese...

6 Tips for Getting the Best Product Photos From Your Hewlett Packard Printer

Are you running a real estate agency or any businesses that are doing a lot of printing? If so, printers are your best operational partners. If you have a great quality printer – whether it’s colour or black-and-white – one of the best things about it is the fact that you can print off your product photos from your PC, laptop or phone. It might be a grainy snap on a sheet of A4, or it could be a professional-quality portrait on heavy photographic paper, it doesn’t matter. As long as you know what you’re doing, you can get the best photos possible from that humble machine you bought from any trusted online stores like cartridgepeople.com; here’s how. Choose whether to print direct from the camera or from memory If your HP printer model allows you to choose between printing straight from the camera or from memory (USB, for example), then give both a go to see which one works best for different photos.

The State of BYOD Adoption by Small Businesses (Infographic)

Want to use your smartphone at work but fearful of doing so in case you get rapped over the knuckles? This may not be the case for much longer, if indeed any longer, as businesses are now moving towards the adoption of BYOD (bring your own devices), which enables workers to use their own smartphones and tablets in the office for business purposes. The statistics about BYOD demonstrate just how widespread it has become, as well as why it has grown to such an extent. 60% of companies already have it in place, with a further 14% projected to implement it within the next 12 months. Indeed, 70% of companies with 50-249 employees already have BYOD, and the number of BYOD devices is anticipated to reach 405 million this year. When you consider that it can save an average of almost 40 minutes from a worker’s week, and $1,300 a year per user, you can see why it is being adopted so widely.
