Pagers And Blackberries – Technology evolves at a breakneck pace, but in our rush to innovate, we vault to the next high-tech platform without considering the merits of the preceding iteration. Take pagers and BlackBerries, for example. The BlackBerry’s keyboard was easy to use, and pagers kept you on notice but with concise messages and consistent connectivity. The merits of this tech could be integrated into modernized systems.
When You Have A Trusted Screening Program – Outsourcing IT is only an option when you have an iron-clad, trusted screening program to vet those who have direct and indirect contact with your tech. With data constantly under attack, your company’s safety is in the hands of your IT department. Don’t consider outsourcing IT until the vetting process is comprehensive, covering everything from credential verification to identity authentication.

Pre-emptive tasks like where to park and introductions to team members would also be simplified.
