I recently upgraded my smartphone from a Samsung S4 to an S7 – wow – what a difference an upgrade makes.
The camera is faster, the entire phone is faster, the screen is more rich – overall it’s just a better phone.
Big lesson learned? While we small business owners have budgets and must save money – you are at times HURTING your business by not upgrade technology on a regular basis.
Software, gets better features, more secure and works easier. Hardware, gets faster and better overall as well.
I would recommend that every 18 months to 2 years you review all your hardware and consider what needs to be upgraded – get help from an expert if you’re not sure. In regard to software, if most of your software is cloud based – it’s upgraded automatically.
Look around you – do you have old technology. You’re HURTING your business.
