When setting up a new company, making sure you can get the best deal for your hardware is very important. Set up costs can add up quickly, so limiting those costs anywhere you can is highly recommended and can be beneficial in the long run. Looking around for companies that can offer discounted prices for previously leased hardware is a good strategy when you are setting up your business. If you are a company that relies heavily on computers and laptops, it is a good idea to look at previously leased equipment because you could possibly save some money of you buy in bulk. The same is true for a company that is starting up and relies heavily on server based storage systems for data.

In the business world today, having a healthy IT structure is crucial. It doesn’t matter if you business is large or small, the need for reliable networking hardware that supports internal and external operations is huge.

Backend Database Installation and Configuration

Configure the Backend Of Your Website – Database Installation and Configuration

A backend database pertains to the applications of the client-side (frontend), and the server-side (backend). The client-side is what the customer sees on the screen of a computer or mobile device that depicts your businesses products and services. The server-side is the developers and programmers side of the website or app where information can be implemented, and coding can be altered and created to make content appear in certain areas; basically the server-side is where the website or app, and everything on it is created.

As a business owner, it is important to have a good looking website or mobile app that is easy for your customers to navigate and get information from. As you only have a few seconds to captivate a customer by your website and turn them into a paying customer, it stands to reason that you should get professional help with backend strategies.

Know your neighbors

Know your neighbors

2

After working out of my home office for past several years the time has come to get an office. It is not an easy decision to make being small IT Services business owner since it requires additional expenses but the most importantly, next to cost, is where will your office will be. I settled on Pontiac, Michigan which has finally came out of state’s control in past year. The advantages of up and coming city is being one of the first computer services providers, growing with the city, contributing to the city’s renaissance and meeting like-minded people who sees it as a worthy investment. The place I ended in is Riker Building on 35 W. Huron St in Pontiac which is a beautiful almost a hundred year old building in downtown.

The next question to ask yourself is who’s your neighbors? With smile on face I learned that two of the floors are occupied by Pete Karmanos’ companies like Lenderful, Deliver My Ride and Mad Dog Technologies. If a successful entrepreneur decided that this is worthy investment this underscores my decision as a right one even more. And from what I understand they’re aiming to bring up to 150 people into the building. In addition to Mr. Karmanos’ businesses I met other neighbors like Unified Communications, LC who’s been providing hosted PBX services for years, then I met a staff of Michigan Works who’s been helping people of Michigan for many years now to get back on track after losing their job or who’s been hit by hard times and is in need of additional employment, change of employment, or just to use a PC connected to internet to send out the resumes.

Always keep in mind that we’re here for your computer, design and marketing needs. We are happy to help with an answer to your question or a service call. We do understand that not all of you are able to afford a full-time IT person on staff so if you need we can come on scheduled basis to address your needs or help you if something happened with your laptop or your computer or your server or the network.

Thank you for your time, I’m looking forward to expand more in my next blog.

Protecting Your Data – I.T Solutions Pontiac Michigan

What to do about protecting your data when starting out?

When you meet with people eventually they find out what you do the conversation turns to what is the most important thing on your PC or your laptop or your network or your server or your iPad and so on and my answer is very simple, its the backup. Why? Because your devices are replaceable your documents are too but if you look at the time it takes to recreate your documents versus the time and money it takes to replace the faulty device it is always cheaper to replace the hardware. Us here in Maxwill Solutions have dealt with the good, the bad and the ugly of these situations and we are happy to provide some computer knowledge to new businesses out there.

There are many backup solutions out there from free, yes free, to others which will cost you thousands, if not, millions of dollars. Since, we are concentrating on startup, a beginner, then your best course of action is offsite solutions offered by big technical companies out there. They are Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, DropBox, pCloud, Tresorit and so on and on. Usually the difference between them is space driven since the companies offer only so many gigabytes with free accounts and then in some cases you will be subjected to advertising. I’m not talking about vicious pop-ups, redirects but when you are opening the application you will get some of them. Here’s a breakdown of space you would get with every free account created: Google Drive 15 GB, Microsoft OneDrive 5 GB, DropBox 2 GB, pCloud 20 GB, Tresorit 1 GB with end-to-end ecryption,

Everything I listed requires installation of a client and knowing how to share a data with your staff if need be. Otherwise, your data will be safely stored in data centers or in a cloud.

Always keep in mind that we’re here for your computer, design and marketing needs. We are happy to help with an answer to your question or a service call. We do understand that not all of you are able to afford a full-time IT person on staff so if you need we can come on scheduled basis to address your needs or help you if something happened with your laptop or your computer or your server or the network.

I.T. Solutions in Pontiac Michigan

What do you do?

We all have been in various social situations and, unless you’re surrounded by your friends or family or acquaintances, eventually all of the niceties and common toppings become exhausted, men and women go separate ways into small homogeneous cliques and then, with us guys, the conversation leads to “So, what do you do?” question. My usual answer is “I’m in an IT field.” What usually happens is I get asked to explain myself so I say that our company, Maxwill Solutions, provides computer support to small businesses and we also provide website building, social media and marketing services too – Maxwill Marketing. In my first blog I’ll explain what each of these two parts of an IT field do.

Maxwill Solutions computer support falls into two categories (a) managed IT services and / or (b) break-and-fix services:

(a) In managed IT services businesses allow their IT operations to a service provider, known as a MSP or Managed Services Provider. The managed service provider undertakes an ongoing responsibility for 24-hour monitoring, managing and/or problem resolution for the IT systems within a business.
(b) In break-and-fix services, the term break-and-fix refers to the fee-for-service technique of providing computer technology services to businesses. Using this method an Information Technologies solution provider performs services as needed and bills the customer only for the work done.

Many people do not differentiate between computer or Information Technology fields lumping together websites, networks, viruses removal, cabling, databases, VoIP, etc but, even though, aforementioned items do belong in the same business sphere many professionals in this field tend to stick with what they know. Meaning, if you’re a programmer you won’t know or able to configure a router just like a web designer won’t remove a viruses from your PC.

Maxwill Marketing encompasses website building, marketing content and manages clients’ exposure via social media companies like Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram and more. Building a website that just lists your address isn’t enough anymore because without engaging your potential clients via pay for service like GoogleAdWords or proper organic decimation of information is just a waste of your hard earned money. You need to claim your website with Google Maps, you need to set up a Google Plus profile, and then determine which of the social media application to engage your potential client with which again depends on what you do, i.e. if you’re more of a visual entity then it is an Instagram and Facebook or if you’re more of professional entity then LinkedIn and Twitter is more up your alley.

Thank you for your time, I’m looking forward to expand more in my next blog.
