Accounting Firms Navigate?
What hardware or software should we choose?
What do we need to secure our data AND be able to securely access it on our mobile devices?
What communications and collaboration system would work best for our team?
We’re considering work-from-home employees or satellite offices, what will it take to provision them with remote access?
How do we stay protected from ransomware and hacking?
We’re thinking about moving to a new facility, adding to our existing space, or renovating, what’s that going to mean for our network, phone system, and Wi-Fi?
How close are our computers and IT assets to end-of-life?
How do we connect different systems so we can eliminate redundant manual data input?
What should we be budgeting for new computers, other technology assets, and IT support for next year?
