Office 2013 is here (whether you like it or not)

Just when you thought you were finally getting everyone onto the same version of Microsoft Office, a new version is out – Microsoft Office 2013.

Why does that matter to you? Well, if you’re buying a computer today, you are almost forced to go with Office 2013. Let me explain why.

Your Internet Should Never Go Down

Ever had an Internet outage at your business? Read on because it should never happen.

All our businesses are so completely dependent on our Internet connections these days that if that goes down, things come to a standstill. That can cost you thousands of dollars in lost productivity, reputation and missed opportunities.

When we recommend computers for our clients…

Our customers often wonder why we choose to only sell Lenovo laptops and desktops.

When I want to choose a workstation for my customer, I want to ensure they get four things from it, powerful technology, long-term reliability, a 3 year-warranty, and ultra-portability.

How often should I replace my office computers?

This is a great question, but from my reviews of numerous businesses over the years, one not asked often enough it seems.

The best practice would be to replace the computer when the warranty expires. For the corporate grade desktops or laptops we recommend, standard warranty coverage is 3 years from the date of purchase.

Dual Monitors – A Major Productivity Booster

For an employee here at TDCNet, working with dual monitors is the norm. I find that working with dual monitors helped me change the way I do a large percentage of my job here. Not only does it make doing a lot of tasks more pleasant, but it also makes them far more efficient.

My iPad Mini

I received an iPad mini recently from work as a Holiday present, and I wanted to share my thoughts on it.

For a person like me, who’s never had a smart phone, or any Apple-related products, I have to admit that I was impressed with the speed at which I set up the Mini.

Internet Connectivity Options

One of the challenges many businesses are having these days is that their internet connections just aren’t fast enough for their business and they are not sure what to do about it.

This stems from the fact that standard cable or ADSL Internet lines that businesses have used for years are no longer good enough because of how much is done online or remotely from your office.

Two New TDCNet Support Changes Starting Today!

We are excited to announce two changes that will improve the service we provide to our clients.

Effectively immediately, we have expanded our support hours to 8am - 5.30pm Monday-Thursday and 8am-5pm on Friday. We know that many of our clients work longer hours and we want to be able to support you and your business better.

Why New Computers Save The Environment

Written by Shikha Dhawan (Sales and Marketing Coordinator)

I have always been interested in reducing my carbon footprint in general, as being green has always been top of my list. As a Sales and Marketing Coordinator, though, I had to reconcile myself with the fact that I sell so many new computers every month to customers.
