      3 Easy Ways to Get Your Business Started With Automation Technology

      In 2017, when there is more technology to choose from than there are colors in a box of crayons, it’s important to rely on competent and frugal managers to find you the technology that can work to make your business more efficient. Here are three ways businesses that have never relied on automation can leverage it to improve some aspect of their business.

      Social Media
      Nowadays, having a social media presence is standard operating procedure for businesses. Platforms like Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and LinkedIn can help to boost your business’ traffic, but if you don’t have the resources to continuously keep up with updating social media, there are options out there that will add some degree of automation to your social media initiatives. The application called Hootsuite was created to assist organizations to enhance their social media presence without having to put as much time and effort into their social media marketing. Hootsuite offers a free plan that supports three social media profiles and two campaigns, and it also has affordable paid options that provide organizations with several additional tools.

      Paperless Automation
      Going paperless can save your business plenty of resources, but sticking with a paperless office strategy is no easy task. Utilizing modern scanning equipment (as opposed to the old one-page-at-a-time flatbed technology), you can process more documents in less time. Using software to organize, share, and distribute scanned documents, both on-premise or in the cloud, can speed up the overhead and save a lot of time in the long run. Equally as important, is to make sure digitized files are backed up automatically, so your data is stored redundantly in case of a disaster.

      Point of Sales and E-Commerce
      When your organization sets out to sell products, whether you are focusing on sales inside a brick and mortar store on selling to clients on the Internet, it is important that you have a secure and reliable sales interface. Since business often moves faster than people do, having a solution to process payments, and get products to customers, is essential. There is software that delivers automation by linking your organization's storefront to your fulfillment vendors. This automation, integrating the invoicing, shipping, and customer feedback processes into one easy-to-manage solution, provides any product-based organization the tools they need to enhance customer satisfaction, build reliable customer relationships, and provide top notch support.

      If your business is searching for solutions to your major business problems, there is a good chance that there is software that has been developed to remedy those issues. Do you already use automated services to help your business be more efficient? Have you considered trying some to further your organization’s goals? Tell us all about it in the comments section below.

      Eliminate Webcam Worry With a Piece of Tape

      RATs are capable of spying on people, but the problem (in this case) is that RATs are frequently used for other, non-invasive procedures as well. IT professionals will frequently use remote access technology to resolve potential problems within a system that they manage. Even some school districts have used RATs to gather photos of students in their home through laptops using a tracking system. In some extreme cases, RATs have also been used for blackmailing purposes.

      The overarching problem with these types of threats is that anyone who owns a device is technically at risk, and legal protections and repercussions are somewhat limited at the moment. The laws that do exist are either outdated or their requirements for litigation are too specific, which hinders the victim’s ability to find reprieve, and law enforcement to catch the criminal.

      Since hackers can safely exploit these flaws in legal recourse, they will often use the information obtained in this fashion to further torment the victims. Besides this, the personal information stolen by hackers could amount to a stolen identity, ruined credit scores, and far worse.

      How to Stop Such Invasions of Privacy
      One solution that the FBI director James Comey suggests is taping over your webcam. While effective, this practice is kind of annoying. Here are a couple of practices that you can use to keep security at the top of your mind:

      • Keeping your security software fully updated always helps to keep malware at bay.
      • Make sure that the latest firewalls and antivirus software are all installed.
      • Use a secure Wi-Fi connection to do your browsing online.

      Another major way that you can prevent issues like this from turning into bigger problems is to keep an eye out for the telltale signs of trouble. Looking for signs such as suspicious emails or the webcam light turning on without your permission might be the first thing you notice. You can take further measures meant to prevent infections in the first place by using strong, frequently-changed passwords, and doing routine file searches for anything that seems out of place.

      We guess you could keep slapping a piece of tape over the webcam, but that’s only a short-term solution. Instead, we recommend that you reach out to Digital Seattle. Our trusted technicians can help you keep your PC safe from all manners of threats, including RATs. You can think of us as your very own IT threat exterminators.

      Tip of the Week: How to Get the Most Out of Your Meetings

      One sure way to make a meeting unbearable is to go in without a plan, as the general disorganization will essentially waste everybody’s time. In fact, the first thing that a meeting will need to be successful is an agenda to outline the points the meeting will touch upon.

      The agenda also has the added benefit of allowing you to establish if a meeting is even necessary. After all, if the meeting is meant to focus on one or two points that only apply to one or two people, it serves the business much better if the meeting is cancelled--as this allows for the majority of would--be attendees to spend their time more productively than if they were to sit in a meeting with that didn’t really apply to them.

      As you establish your reason for meeting, you also establish the point to stay focused on as your meeting takes place. What purpose does your meeting have? What is the end goal? Are you meeting to establish an initiative’s timeframe? Are you resolving an issue? Are you brainstorming your next project? Cementing the meeting’s core purpose will assist in maintaining your focus for the duration of the meeting. Other effective tactics for building focus include discouraging the use of devices as a meeting is in session, and conducting a meeting in which all attendees are on their feet.

      Of course, there are ways that you personally can make a meeting more engaging if you ever find yourself at the helm. Whenever it’s appropriate, try sprinkling some humor into your presentation to keep your audience’s attention. However, use this tool sparingly, as it can easily become a detriment to accomplishing anything within your session.

      Be cautious of rambling and going off subject. Eliminating extra words and being sure to avoid hesitant sounds like “um,” "uh,” and “well,” will not only help your audience listen to what you're saying, but it will make you seem more confident. Practicing what you plan to say ahead of time will help with this, as well as help you better prepare for the real deal.

      Perhaps most importantly, you need to remember to be yourself. Nothing will make a meeting drag on more than an insincere delivery of industry jargon. Speak as though you normally would, and don’t be afraid to poke fun at yourself, as this will make you a more engaging and approachable speaker.
