Posted by T.J. Bloom, COO of MDL Technology
Forget gory costumes and creepy jack-o-lanterns this Halloween. The scariest thing that could happen to your business this season might be a tech nightmare. Fortunately, there are some simple solutions and tech tips to help you avoid an IT disaster.
According to TransTechOne, common business tech issues include failing to schedule regular backups of data and using weak passwords. These simple tech problems could turn into tech nightmares for companies, so businesses should be careful to avoid them with a few precautions.
Mark Dryer, president of MDL Technology, LLC, said, “If your business encounters a tech-related problem, an experienced IT team will be able to help you out, depending on the issue. However, you could solve the problem without picking up the phone by performing some easy troubleshooting. Simply restarting your computer is one method of solving some common bugs.”
Dryer added, “Another common fix is to make sure your operating system is fully updated and that all of the updates were installed correctly. Companies often forget that simple updates can avoid a lot of these serious nightmares which could shut down an entire businesses operations for days, costing companies thousands of dollars. If a problem persists after trying these methods, it might be time to call tech support.”
