        Jeff has provided computer components and IT services to our medical practice since 2007. He has seen us through a system conversion, office move, and EMR implementation, providing the peripherals and support needed to make a smooth transition each time. He and his staff are prompt, professional, and price conscious. I highly recommend PC Technologies for any of your IT and/or computer needs

      • Gets it fixed fast
        CPA

        Jeff and his staff installed a major computer upgrade for my office. There was no down time for my staff, the system works great and whenever there's glitch, Jeff, or one of his staff, gets it fixed fast.

      • No more having to take the computer into the store
        Director at Washington Gemological Laboratory

        I have relied on Jeff and his crew for not only minor 'bugs' that occur but also for swapping out the entire data from an older laptop into the one I currently use. They have always been able to do the job and quickly. Most of the time they are able to resolve the issue over the phone, while controlling my computer from their office. Love it!! Makes my life so much easier. No more having to take the computer into the store.

      • Jeff is the IT consultant for our company.
        Citizen Action Network at Freedom Foundation

        He goes the extra mile to ensure that all of our computer infrastructure is running smoothly. When we do encounter problems Jeff is quick to respond. He has become integral to our team--so much so, we should call him a staff member rather than a consultant.

      • PC Tech is a great place to get all of your IT needs.
        Branch Manager / Loan Officer at Weststar Pacific Mortgage

      Department of Education Forming New, Mobile-Friendly IT Infrastructure Plan

      This move toward mobility is designed to replace the department's current IT infrastructure, known as EDUCATE (Education Department Utility for Communications, Applications, and Technology Environment). EDUCATE was implemented in 2007 by Perot Systems after they won the bid for $400 million. At the time, this was a bold move because it effectively transferred oversight of the infrastructure from the government to a contractor.

      Today, the U.S. Department of Education has a new set of priorities that they would like to see out of their infrastructure. According to Jason Gray, Chief Information Officer for the Education Department, the technology landscape has changed so much since 2007 that a revamp is in order. Gray says that these new infrastructure objectives should encourage innovation, optimize the cost to benefit ratio, and show flexibility to make integrating changes in requirements simple.

      These objectives are spelled out in a new infrastructure plan named PIVOT (the Portfolio of Integrated Value-Oriented Technology). Unlike the previous model, PIVOT looks to have each aspect of the infrastructure (like oversight, hosting data, printing, network services, technical management and integration, and mobile services) written up with its own contract.

      The primary goal of the Department’s new infrastructure is increased mobility. They look to achieve this by moving away from a permanently established office space, and instead, take advantage of teleworking and hoteling (where workers use mobile devices to move about an office instead of being limited to their desk). This kind of move is in line with a federal government initiative to reduce its real estate footprint. In keeping with this goal, PIVOT has the potential to free up 6,200 workers from the traditional office environment.

      There are lots of benefits to be had by the U.S. Department of Education from a move like this. What about your own IT infrastructure? Has it been updated in recent years to take advantage of the advancements of mobile computing? Or, are you still doing business like it's 2005 with a workforce tied to their desks and limited to bulky workstations?

      To revamp your own IT infrastructure, give PC Technologies a call at 360-491-2227 and find out what we can do for you.

      4 Ways Stress Can Be Good (and Bad) for Your Business

      When talking about stress, there’s one important detail that cannot be overlooked: stress created for the sole purpose of being stressed is not a good motivator. Inc states that “stress that comes from not having enough information or that’s based on an irrational fear is a poor motivator.” In other words, it’s important to keep stress to a minimum whenever possible, as there’s quite literally no reason to be stressed about everything and everyone around you. You need to retain control if you want to harness the power of stress.

      That being said, there are some benefits to be gained from the occasional bout of stress. Here are four of them.

      Stress Provides an Energy Boost
      Stress is often draining and is known to sap energy from you, but if something urgent comes up, this stress can become a motivating factor that provides energy. With this kind of stress, you’ll become more aware of your surroundings and find that you’ll have the energy needed to get your work done.

      Stress Proves That You Care About Your Work
      If you’ve been stressed out about a project, you might go through a couple of stages where you initially hate yourself for it. Eventually, you might claim that you just don’t care and that you want it to be over with as soon as possible. However, the stress is a signal that you do actually care about how the project turns out. If you’re stressing about a project, take solace in the understanding that you do actually care.

      Stress Can Teach You to Enjoy the Little Things
      There’s something to be said about a hard day’s work. Imagine if you had a job where you had to be exposed to sweltering weather all day, under incredible physical duress on an empty stomach. Now imagine going home after the day’s work to an air-conditioned home with a delicious meal sitting on the dinner table. It’s the little things that make working with stress bearable. If you understand this concept, you’ll have a greater appreciation for the time that you’re not stressed.

      Stress Can Inspire Quick Action
      Stress is something that nobody wants to deal with, so it’s only natural that they move toward the solution: eliminating the stress. This means that people will work swiftly and efficiently toward removing the stress factor from their lives, regardless of what that entails. This doesn’t mean that you should go out of your way to stress yourself out; instead, it means that you’ll work with urgency when it’s required.

      While there are advantages to stress, it’s still something that needs to be managed and mitigated whenever possible. While you might not be able to do much for stress caused by problems outside the office, you can assist them with managing their workplace issues. One of the ways that you can make your employees’ lives easier is by providing functional, working technology that helps them perform their jobs to the best of their ability.

      Our managed IT services are just what the busy business owner needs to eliminate frustrations caused by dysfunctional technology solutions. To learn more, reach out to us at 360-491-2227.

      Tip of the Week: How Instant Messaging Can Be Used to Improve Workplace Collaboration

      A survey from BetterCloud and reported on by ITProPortal, shows that over half of users believe that instant messaging will become the new email in the office. When you think of how useful email has been for the business environment, this is an impressive statement. The problem, just like email, lies in showing users how to leverage best practices for their instant messaging solution, and managing perhaps the biggest downside of all: how distracting it can be.

      If you want to improve your business’s instant messaging practices, try these tips.

      Accurately Represent Your Current Online Status
      Your team can’t reach out to you if they don’t know that you’re online, and the opposite is also true. If you say you’re online, and you’re not, you could be wasting their time, which wastes the company money. Be sure to change your status to indicate when you’re away from your computer or logged off for the night. This way, your team will know if it’s more efficient to contact someone else with their problems.

      If It’s Going to Be a Long Conversation, Try a Different Communication Medium
      Instant messaging conversations can often be confusing and misleading thanks to the difficulty of expressing context. It’s often better to just pick up the phone and call someone than it is to have long, drawn-out IM discussions. Or, even better, you can meet up and have a face-to-face discussion. This eliminates the need for IMs at all, and you can express yourself in earnest.

      If You Have a Short, Specific Request, Try to Put It at the Beginning of the Conversation
      If all you need to do is ask a question, then just ask the question. All you would be doing otherwise is wasting time. You need to be courteous and respectful of your colleagues’ time, as they’re likely just as busy as you are.

      Take Full Advantage of Your IM System’s Features
      Many instant messaging systems allow for several other additional functions. Therefore, you’ll miss out by not leveraging them all to your business’s advantage. For example, voice chat can be a great way to clear up confusion surrounding something, and you can add other people to the conversation as needed. Basically, you want to find out which features work for your business, and what its limitations are. Doing so lets you better help your team capitalize on the features and benefits of your IM solution.

      By following instant-messaging best practices, your business will see greater productivity and enhanced efficiency. For more information about communications technology, reach out to PC Technologies at 360-491-2227.
