Computer Consulting Business Hardware Warranty Services

techno13

As a computer consulting business, you shouldnt be spending precious time and your clients limited budgets troubleshooting a malfunctioning monitor or CD-RW drive.

If your computer consulting business is large enough that you have both senior-level and technician-level staff, youre probably already doing a great job of directing workload to the right personnel.

Are You a Company of One?

However, if you are a small computer consulting business, where perhaps you are the “company”, it makes sense to let the PC vendors technical support staff arrange for hardware warranty repairs, using their large networks of national service providers.

Know the Facts about Warranty Service

As a computer consulting business, you will want to know how long the warranty period is, if it covers parts, labor or both and what the promised response and turnaround time on warranty service may be.

Also, determine whether the vendor will try to pressure your clients to do their own service. If so, are your clients prepared to pay your consulting firm to do the labor?

Scheduling Hardware Warranty Service Calls

If possible, try to have your clients internal gurus schedule hardware warranty service calls to coincide with times when you are at your clients offices on other related computer consulting business. Or at the minimum, be sure that your clients internal gurus are there to supervise the third party hardware technicians.

Be Involved

Its really up to you to decide how active of a role your computer consulting business wants to take in coordinating and managing these hardware warranty repairs. In some cases, getting in involved with the full end-to-end responsibility makes sense, including packaging up the defective part to send back.

In other cases, you may be better off training your clients internal gurus on how to place these vendor tech support calls and supervise the hardware warranty repairs.

The Best Review Of The Currency Trading Robots Available Today

techno2

There are more currency trading robots on the market available to automatically trade for you than ever today, the trick is seeing through the hype and getting the best of the best. I’ve put together a review of what I believe to be the best of today’s currency trading robots on the market right now so that you can trade accordingly without a great deal of experience.

FAP Turbo is one of many currency trading robots on the market today vying for your attention and claiming to be the best at automatically placing and ending trades for you in the currency exchange. The obvious question is what makes it difference, and furthermore what makes it the best?

When you first get the program, you’ll have to decide if you want to run it from your computer or have it run from the publisher’s servers for an extra monthly fee. This is because FAP Turbo requires constant 24 hour access to real time market data around the clock so that it’s always in a position to trade accordingly and keep tabs on real time market data, this is how the program operates. So keep this in mind when you first get the program and think about whether or not you can run it from your computer with (reliable) internet access 24 hours a day.

One of the most notable things about FAP Turbo which sets it apart is that it’s the most conservative and reliable of today’s currency trading robots. In other words, it keeps much greater standards which a trend must meet before it will invest any money. This is in direct contrast to more aggressive currency trading robots which I’ve used which oftentimes lose more than they take in because they go after high risk but high reward trading opportunities. It is clear to me that the makers of FAP Turbo kept this in mind when designing their system to be an improvement on the rest.

Multimedia Arts Transforming The Learning Landscape

techno17

Multimedia is everywhere. It is in your favorite video games, web sites, phone apps, music, e-books, and camera. Though it comes in different forms, still, it serves as a powerful communication tool intended for expressive and practical purposes.

An Innovative Way of Learning

Multimedia is described as the combination of text, sound effects, light, animated figures, and still images. It is used in video games, information kiosks, websites, and other interactive applications.

The most significant contributions of hypermedia can be realized in education. It emerges as a creative, fun, and innovative way of learning. Besides reflective thinking, it also stimulates cognitive senses allowing students to express prior knowledge, interpret information, and participate in discussions.

According to research, a human brain is capable of processing and encoding simultaneous auditory and visual stimuli; however, text and sounds are better remembered through visual presentation. Thus, multimedia arts are integrated in various applications to capture a persons curiosity and attention helping instructors to provide a comprehensive learning experience to their students. Besides a learner-centered environment, it also provides increased access to information, self-paced learning, enhanced communication, and self-efficiency.

Overall, interactive learning is an effective way of surpassing academic challenges. Though it is a relatively new approach to instruction, it greatly provides an opportunity to creatively develop a diverse, adaptable, and interactive learning environment. Moreover, participation in such activities would help students learn:

– Effective collaboration techniques;
– Teamwork;
– Strategies to overcome communication challenges;
– Significant techniques in synthesizing and analyzing complex content;
– Importance and impact of different media platforms;
– Ways of expressing ideas creatively;
– System of presenting information in compelling ways; and
– Acceptance and proper delivery of constructive feedback.

Only in the Philippines

The importance of multimedia learning in todays advanced and complex world should not be overlooked. Not only does it improve learning experience, but it also reduces curriculum barriers. It is for this that finding an excellent school is an important consideration to ensure quality education. Remember, that effective learning is more than just a fast wifi connection.

The Philippines is always on top when it comes to interactive learning. Besides equally talented and skilled Filipinos, it is also home to one of the most sought-after ICT institution, CIIT.

Known for its high-quality and industry-based education, CIIT is crafted to equip its students with relevant skills that would prepare them for the real world. Its curriculum is constantly improved to keep pace with the changing demands of the industry. In addition, CIIT is one of the few colleges that offer Bachelors Degree in Multimedia Arts with a choice of specialization in Graphics Design, 3D Visualization or Video and Motion Graphics.

Benefits Of Fax Over IP Technology In Small Businesses

techno12

Voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) technology has become standard in many offices and storefronts. It provides higher bandwidth and better capabilities than traditional phone lines. Faxing has changed because of the introduction of VoIP technology. Traditional fax machines that used modulated sound to transmit data are being replaced by software-based digital systems. Small businesses can benefit in a number of ways by switching to fax over IP technology.

Reliability

One of the ways fax over IP can help a small business is by improving the reliability of transmissions. Traditional faxes rely on signal modulation to send and receive data. Inconsistencies in the telephone lines, minor hardware issues and even different fax machines can cause these transmissions to fail or to become corrupted. The fax over IP technology is digital and the data has a very low to non-existent chance of loss. This makes digital faxes far more reliable.

Lower Costs

Fax over VoIP will save small businesses money over traditional faxing technologies. VoIP protocols can be sent across any network line. They can also be interpreted by a wide range of technologies from computers to multifunction printers and even mobile devices. This makes it unnecessary to maintain dedicated phone lines. It also decouples faxing from older fax machines that require constant maintenance, paper and toner.

Environmentally Friendly

Sending fax over VOIP in a network through a line can be done completely electronically. Small businesses do not need to feed a paper printout of an invoice or report into a machine. Similarly, faxes that have been received do not need to be printed immediately or at all. Sending and receiving faxes can be done through a software interface. Faxes can be sent and received as digital files that are viewed on computer screens or mobile devices. This allows a small business to be more environmentally friendly without having to sacrifice the convenience of faxing.

Better Access for Employees

The traditional way of sending faxes involved loading a machine, dialing a number and then waiting for a confirmation. This is time consuming and inefficient especially when multiple people need to send a fax. Fax over IP technology makes it possible for employees to send faxes seamlessly from a desktop or other device. The fax can be added as a network device similar to a printer. Employees can simply send documents to the fax from within different programs.

Higher Quality Faxes

A large benefit for modern businesses is higher quality faxes. Fax over IP can encode documents created digitally. There are no scanning or resolution issues. People who receive the fax will see the document exactly as it was created. This can make it easier to send documents that include detailed charts, small graphics or complex illustrations. The individual pixel will not run together and become illegible because of issues with an optical scanner at the last minute.
