Startup Technology needs

It’s no secret, the tech scene is booming on the East Coast and with boom comes the need for increased infrastructure.

So what does every startup need when well… starting up.

A great computer
Perhaps a calculator and a notebook served mom and pop shops well 20 years ago but now, everything is automated and the faster you move the faster your business will move. But that is probably a given… you have a computer right? Well, making sure it has the correct capabilities, software, and hardware is as important as having the correct computer itself. A professional consultation and set up coupled with a help desk for ongoing questions is critical as a growing company.

This brings us to your next important tool… your network.

On your network is everything from your internet to your printers. Here are your basic needs.

Phone lines.
It sounds simple… almost everyone has one, so why should yours be so special? Well, your phone line typically is one of the most important gateways to your customers. Setting up a phone system that is scalable and works with your business’s needs is an important part of everyday functions.

Internet
Of course you need internet… nowadays, what’s the use of having a computer if it’s not connected. With a business, just having a stable connection is not enough. Setting up a full network to ensure efficiency is important. From simple file sharing  to a large intranet, your internet connection will be one of your most valuable tools. Choosing between a DSL, Cable, or Fiber connection and then securing that connection is an important IT function.

These are just a few things to get you started as a small business. An IT professional can create a map that will build a plan for your technology system based on your company’s needs.
