As the year winds down and 2016 is on the horizon, there’s no better time to reflect on the past year’s strengths and weakness to appropriately plan for the next. As you focus on your staff’s productivity, your sales, and your future goals, don’t forget an important part of your team – your fleet of computers. Letting previously innovative computers age until they’re out of date can do more harm than you realize. It can restrict productivity when crucial programmes can’t operate, which results in frustrated and unmotivated employees.
You might have purchased your computers with the hope that they’ll last forever, but unfortunately PCs have a very limited lifespan. The average consumer laptop can last anywhere between three and five years, which means your application laden company PCs have a much shorter existence. That’s because your staff members are putting more stress on their laptops than the average home user. At home, people use their computers for basic things like the Internet and Microsoft Word for only a handful of hours each day. At work, professionals will use their computers to operate applications that tax processing power for at least 8 hours a day.
Choosing to string along a fleet of out-dated laptops can put a toll on your employees. They’ll feel thwarted at every turn, as applications and programmes close before they can successfully save their work. As a result, you’ll be forced to extend deadlines and spend hours in recovery time. You’ll be losing more money than just with your staff. In order to keep an overburdened computer operational, you’ll have to sink money into its maintenance. IT personnel will have to commit more of their valuable time to ensure updates are compatible with older models and that upgrades are properly installed.
Buying new company laptops is actually the cheaper alternative, especially when some of the most advanced notebooks on the market are inexpensive innovations. Many of these notebooks are portable, making it easy for your employees to work wherever they need to, which means you’ll feel good about sending them to conferences, seminars, or internal meetings. With a new notebook, they’ll have the technology to back them and your company up.
But mobility isn’t the only thing that you should be worried about when it comes to your company’s new PCs. They need to be powerful notebooks to keep your business running as per usual. With top of the line Intel processors, innovative laptops can keep up with all of the demands your company has. Combined with increased RAM, all of your internal applications and programmes will run smoothly without a hitch. As a result, your employees will be happier and more productive.
To find the latest in business class laptops, don’t settle for the first manufacturer that you can find. Do some research to find out the leading brands in the country and you’ll find that Toshiba rates pretty high. Toshiba’s new notebook computers come with 4th Generation Intel® Core™i3, i5, or i7 processors and a variety of communicative ports like USB, VGA, and HDMI that make collaborating within the office a breeze. Best of all, there are some truly lightweight and portable options that are perfect for your remote staffs that travel across the continent.
As the draws to an end, ensure updating your company’s PC makes the top of your resolutions. It will be one of the easiest New Year’s resolutions you can tick off, and it guarantees the highest return in capital. So look at the business class notebooks on the market today, and improve the productivity and morale of your staff.
