When all is said and done a computer is only as good as its software. There’s software to protect your computer. There’s word processing software, image editing software, POS software, spreadsheet software, and software for just about anything you can think of, but which one is the right one for you. Some areas we maybe able are:
- Antivirus and Malware
- Automatic Backup Software
- Productivity Software
- Point of Sale(POS) System Software
One of the most important pieces of software on your computer is an antivirus. While freebies such as AVG abound, for your business we recommend a paid version of a mainstream antivirus with frequent virus definition updates. Another important piece of protective software is a reliable firewall. We also recommend using a malware scanner on a regular basis. Sound like a lot to worry about? Give us a call or use our convenient contact form and we will take your worries way!
First let me say BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP. With that said there are a plethora of backup software. There is software that performs backups to internal drives, USB drives, optical drives, other computers, or even the cloud. Seriously this is one of the most important things you can do to protect your business data. We can help you select, install, and configure your computer to perform this on an automatic basis so you can rest assured your data is safe and sound.
Now that your computer and data are protected what’s next? That depends on what you use your computer for. If you create a lot of word document, spreadsheets, and/or presentations you may want to invest in a productivity suite such as Microsoft Office 365. If on the other hand you create two word document a month, an expense sheet once a month, and slide show once every year or so you may want to consider one of the free open source option available such as OpenOffice.

There are special consideration when selecting point of sale or POS software. One consideration might be whether your current accounting software offers a POS module. Another factor in determine the appropriate POS software is the number of terminals you will be operating. You will also have to decide between wired and wireless. Will you be using touch screen terminals, keypad and mouse terminal, or cash register terminals? Will you need bar code readers? What about credit card scanners? These are all things that need to be considered when setting up your point of sale system.
