Reasons To Invest In Commercial Window Tinting

There are a lot of unique benefits to commercial window tinting for buildings. For this reason, a lot of commercial property owners are deciding to make their initial investments in tinting in order to see both the short and long term benefits of doing so. If you are wondering whether or not it is in your best interest to invest in commercial window tinting yourself, you are going to want to check out the benefits below.

Benefits Of Commercial Window Tinting:

1. Save Money.

One of the most significant benefits of investing in this kind of window tinting is being able to save a lot of money. Because you will be able to better maintain a much more consistent environment throughout the building, you should be able to save a significant amount of money in lower operating costs each and every month. Thus, you will be able to experience both short and long term savings when it comes to better energy efficiency. This alone is enough reason to invest in this kind of tinting for your commercial property as the savings can really mount up for large properties. This is something the boss loves.

2. Better and More Comfortable Working Environment.

Another benefit that you are going to get when you invest in this kind of commercial window tinting is a much better and much more comfortable working environment overall. Because you are going to be minimizing the amount of sunlight penetration and hot spots throughout the property itself, you should be able to make it much more enjoyable to be inside of and to work in. After all, you are not going to have certain employees being hit with direct sunlight or having an over abundance of sunlight glaring off of their computer monitors.  This can create a more benevolent environment for your corporate culture as the employees see you spending money on their comfort.

3. Affordable

A lot of people would assume that investing in something that has the potential to save you so much money would cost a lot of money to do. The truth is, the cost to implement this kind of window tint is actually very affordable which means that there is not a huge up front investment that you have to worry about. While there is going to be an up front investment that you must consider, it is relatively cheap in comparison with the amount of money you will save on the back end of things.

4. Save Furniture

Believe it or not, but direct sunlight and UV rays can play a critical role in the overall deterioration of your furniture. By investing in window tints, you should be able to save your furniture from this problem and really be able to ensure that your furniture lasts as long as possible.

Special thanks to the office at my favorite window tinting company, agtinters.com, Frisco TX for contributing to this article. If you happen to be in the area of Frisco or Dallas etc…, give them a ring.

Overall, there are many benefits associated with investing in window tinting for your business. By focusing on getting this kind of tinting, you should be able to set yourself up to really save a significant amount of money in the long run. Not only is it an affordable investment to consider, it has many short and long term benefits. Not only these but you can save on your computer equipment since it'll be sitting around during the weekend in a cooler office. Then you won't need to call me for any fixes!

Hire us to help you install your ADT Business Security

Security Systems For Businesses Must Be Well Made

You'll hear that this or that security system for a company is the best depending on who you talk to. It's really up to you who you can trust and what you're trying to do. You are responsible for what you are doing as long as you are in charge and that means you have to have a reliable system installed.

There are a variety of systems that are good or bad. Usually, you will have better results if you don't go with ones that are not researched properly. Even if a security company employee tells you that it's the best or whatever, know that they are in business to make money for the most part. In other words, if what they sell is no good they probably will still say that it is and that's why it's important to research carefully.

Burglary suspects at a business – caught by the LAPD because of business security cameras

A good indicator of quality is what you get from the services they offer you. Are they wanting to give you an installation for free or will they offer a better price if you get something nicer? It's the little discounts and things like that adding up for you that make a company better to work with than others. Many people will go above and beyond so that you can become a regular customer for them. Call to ask what the specials are they offer or check them out online like through social media to see if you can save that way.

Check out what a system like ADT business can capture. Have someone walk around in the store or act like they are taking something so you can see how easy it is to see them. If you have any adjustments that have to be made, do not put them off even if you have to pay someone to help. You usually will want to work with a company that will do the check with you before they leave but if you can't be there you can ask if they can come and fix any mistakes that you may have noticed they made.

A review that has something to do with the company or that was written for free products shouldn't be the type of thing you trust. If they have it on their own website, of course it will be a positive one. People sometimes pay others to write reviews for them or they offer to give someone something for free which makes the reviewer write something positive so they don't lose out on free stuff. That's why a reviewer should be found that has nothing to do with the business in that they get paid or get something for free from writing it.

There are many you could choose from such as bayalarm.com and protection1.com but we'd like to recommend the ADTbusinesssecurity.com solution.

ADT business security is probably the most reliable and valuable out of all the others to a business that needs to raise its security. The cost is only a few dollars / day, but for peace of mind, that's nothing. Plus, with ADT you get unlimited storage of video data in the cloud so you'll never have to host the data on your own or worry about it becoming compromised. It's okay if you take some time to make a choice, just don't wait for a problem to happen that you could have avoided with the right system. Contact me to help you get started.

Where IT and Applications Meet

More times that I care to mention, one of our techs ends up on site to help a company who's having trouble with an application. It's either with the ERP software or some other accounting software, but occasionally it's with a custom application that looks and feels like a desktop app but it's actually hosted in the cloud. But not just any cloud, they're mostly hosted on the client's servers. There is a growing trend for companies to have custom apps built, then having those apps installed on some hardware. This is something we need to talk about right now.

Hosted or Local Applications: What is the difference?

The problem with hosting your own application, and not on the desktop, is that if your network goes down, you'll lose all the information that was stored in the app. This is true with anyone else in your company who is using the same data. When the cloud started to become of age back in the mid 2000's, lots of companies decided they'd host their data off-site in data centers around the world. And they're better off because of it.

On the other hand, a hosted service keeps all your application data as well as the user authentication on a remote server. It also keeps backups, and backups of your backups so there is double or triple redundancy in the case of a catastrophe. The question often arises on how companies would handle a disaster at their location, in the case of a fire or a major data breach or melt-down. These are all part of a backup plan that makes running a business a lot smoother and more nimble. And the more streamlined a business, the more profitable it becomes.

Secure Applications Built for Your Company

Now that you know where you should host your company's data, I'd like to discuss one of my favorite app development companies – Seamgen, who has been developing for nearly a decade out of Southern California. They do all the work in-house and a major part of their process is looking at the types of applications that a business wants to have built. With the onset of cross-platform applications that tie in seamlessly with the desktop versions, they provide login access on mobile devices, with access to critical business intelligence from anywhere in the world. And the way they handle encryption and security as in the case of a lost device, such as the more than 60 thousand laptops that go missing at airports each year, they provide clients with a way to turn off a user's access to the data.

With such a high risk of data falling into the wrong hands, it makes it hard to consider moving everything to the cloud, but such losses are not losses if handled right away. And it's impossible to say how much damage employees do maliciously, but at least you can sleep at night knowing that if the office is burned down, you'll still be able to carry on with business as usual. Thanks for reading and please contact me if you're looking for a good resource in your city. Don

What to Look For in a Computer Networking Company

Computer Networking Is Not For Everyone

A few years ago I went through this phase where I swore that I was meant to be an IT professional. Since that industry is always booming, I figured it would be a good idea to find a job in that sector. I enrolled in classes at the local college and I thought I was well on my way to a lucrative career. The problem with this idea is the fact that I did not enjoy taking the courses as much as I thought I would. In fact, I regretted my decision a week or two after I went to class for the first time.

While many of the students in the class thrived, I did not do well at all. When the course came to a close, I felt as if I did not learn much. My experience showed me that networking is not for everyone. It is about far more than a paycheck and I really am not equipped for that. I would certainly like to commend all of those who are in that industry. It is pretty complicated work and people I know who do it seem to enjoy it very much.

The Science behind Corporate e-learning

If you've grown up before the dawn of the digital age and your idea of education is a group of students sitting in a classroom learning from a teacher holding a textbook and writing notes on a chalk board, then you're in for a surprise. The new technology surrounding education has literally connected thousands of people together virtually through the internet. There is a growing industry of education for companies using learning management software to keep everyone on the cutting edge of company news and advances.

Corporate LMS (Learning Management Systems) and the Connection Myth

Corporations have long prided themselves on keeping their employees and leadership of the company on the same page – so to speak. In reality, the way they historically did this was through newsletters mailed home or to have perhaps monthly team meetings with managers, who in turn would disseminate the information at the employee level. This was a good attempt to do exactly what corporate elearning software is now capable of. The big idea behind this industry is to connect employees at a more meaningful level than just a monthly company letter in the mail or some other outdated and archaic form of communication. To learn more about the kind of software that can provide this kind of connectedness to your organization, visit: https://topyx.com/learning-management-solution/corporate-lms

When getting plugged in to the bigger picture with an organization, studies have shown that when people feel this connection, and they experience the collaboration during an LMS session with other coworkers or stakeholders of the company, there comes an added and hidden benefit – loyalty.

In the digital age when employees land jobs it seems like the next day they're looking for another. This is surely due to the discontentedness that comes with some greed, but it's also a symptom of a deeper lack of feeling fulfilled in one's work. If a job comes down to a commodity for an individual, then that company has failed to inspire, connect and educate. Fail to do these things, and your enterprise is going to become a thing of internet past. Why not use the internet to gather the most important people in your company together for weekly or bi-weekly meetings? Who knows what might happen when brains start meeting together. Did you know that one meeting like this is where Gmail was born? Google set up labs for their employees to meet and discuss one-day projects where each participant would spend the entire day working on a new concept to bring to the discussion table. And thank goodness! Where would any of us be without gmail?

The Break between Advertising and Internal IT, Words from Search Geeks

Understanding Acronyms within Internet or Online Marketing

Online marketing is something that just about every business should be heavily investing in nowadays. With an increasing amount of consumers not only do their research about products and services online, but also doing their shopping, there has never been a more important time to implement online marketing into your overall mix. There are various strategies that can be used in order to actively market your business, product, and/or service online. In this article, we will be discussing some of the different kinds of marketing that you might want to consider investing in.

Different Kinds Of Online Marketing:

Whether you've done only traditional marketing or you've dabbled in online marketing or advertising, one thing is true: things are moving incredibly fast. Here to help us understand some of the vernacular of 2017 is a contact I have at Search Geeks (searchgeeks.com).

1. SEM or Pay Per Click

Pay Per Click (PPC) is one of the forms of marketing that you are going to want to familiarize yourself with. Not only can it be a very effective way to market a product or service, but it can really allow you to generate a significant amount of leads in a very short period of time. Because of this, PPC is regularly used with the launch of brand new products in order to test the viability within the marketplace. Also, PPC is generally used to drive an influx of traffic to various things such as landing pages, crowdfunding campaigns, and more. PPC can be a very valuable tool because you are only going to be responsible for paying for leads that have actively clicked on one of your ads. Thus, they should be able to increase your overall sales in theory as long as you have good conversions on the pages that you are driving traffic to.

2. SEO, or Search Engine Optimization in 2017

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is another marketing strategy that you are going to want to implement into your business in order to effectively market it online. SEO is such an important strategy for any business in today's competitive landscape because it is very likely that your competition is already doing it. SEO is the process of optimizing a website with the end goal to better rank the website organically in the search engines for related keywords and/or key phrases. Because SEO is something that is meant to drive organic traffic to your website, it can be a very cost effective and cost efficient tool to use within your overall marketing mix.

3. Social Media Marketing, Does it work?

Another important strategy that you are going to want to get into your overall marketing mix would have to be social media marketing. This kind of marketing is so important for businesses because it can provide significant boosts to your website in terms of traffic and overall sales potential. The more content that you post on social media networks, the more chances of sharing, and the more chances that you are going to get your post in front of someone that would be a potential customer either now or in the future.

Overall, there are a lot of different strategies that you are going to want to get into your marketing plan. Not only do you want to make sure that you are implementing free and/or low cost marketing methods, but you also do not want high dollar amounts that can be seen in PPC to deter you from implementing it.

You can reach the Geeks for more information at searchgeeks.com and check out their services offered.

Tracking Packages while Drop shipping within ecommerce

Dropshipping within e-commerce is a Revolutionary concept that has made it easier for people to start businesses easily and on a low budget. Thanks to The Internet, e-Commerce has become a reality for people. Many entrepreneurs are able to run their businesses from their attic or bedrooms, taking orders online from customers located in different cities or countries.

How Dropshipping Works

One of the challenges of running any commerce business is the shortage of warehousing space. While you can do away with the need for a brick and mortar retail store, the need for storage for goods remains. Dropshipping in e-commerce has done away with this difficulty as well. This kind of program is an arrangement where the retailer can request the wholesaler or distributor to directly ship the product to the retailer's customer. This ensures that the retailer does not have to spend money on warehousing. Also, the shipping process becomes easier since you don't have to store inventory on-premises or package and ship the products.

This is also effective if you deliver other items, perhaps you need a parcel tracking software if your main business is sending letters that need to be tracked – especially if they're certified or contain important items such as legal documents or checks.

Dropshipping within E-Commerce has one drawback. You cannot always check if the parcel or shipment has actually been sent to the customer. You might spend a lot of time building your profile and reputation as a retailer online. One misplaced shipment can lead to bad reviews and affect your business badly. To ensure that the shipment reaches your customer in time, you need to have a reliable system in place that helps you keep track of where the parcel is at any given time. This also offers further motivation at the distributor end to process shipping requests on time.

Dropshipping within e-commerce is a very profitable business model for retailers who know how to use the system do generate maximum profit. However, you have to ensure that the parcels reach the customer on time. Since you are not personally overseeing the packaging and shipping of parcels, the next best thing to do is to rely on a shipping or package tracking system.

 Using Package Tracking Software to Ensure Delivery

In addition to investing in a tracking software, you also need to invest in some time to find the right distributors. Not all wholesalers offer Drop shipping as part of their services. Some distributors try to undercut retailers' profit by directly reaching out to customers. Therefore, you have check distributor policies to see if they are aware of the concept of drop shipping. Also you have to ensure that the packaging meets your standards. You would not want the packaging to carry the distributors' contact details or brand name. Drop shipping is a very profitable business model; however, lack of reliable wholesalers or distributors could be a hindrance to business growth. In addition to a good shipment tracking device, you also need the cooperation of the wholesaler for you drop shipping arrangements. The wholesaler should also offer you other benefits such as a larger profit margin.

 

You have to work on finding a mutually agreeable shipping system. Some courier companies offer discounts to businesses and bulk orders. If your wholesaler agrees to use this type of shipping, you could save a lot of money by not having to pay too much for shipping. Dropshipping in ecommerce takes patience but stands to offer huge rewards.

What Happens when you Order from Sven Gear

If you've ever been amazed by the quality of our packaging and delivery services, we can't take all the credit. Many customers have asked us about our process and we always point them to our national fulfillment services provider. They are the ones responsible for delivering your packages when you order from us. We've been amazed at their attention to detail and the quality of the work they put in to packaging our products neatly. Thankfully we've never had anything break, and on the occasional returns, they're the ones you'd talk to. We use their call center as well as the fulfillment, however, we may also have them do our website as they offer a complete ecommerce package from the ground up.

Our packages delivered fast

When you order from Svengear.com we know that time is of the essence since many of our products have a short shelf life. This being the case, we decided to move all our operations to their warehouse because they dedicated a portion of the building to our products only. This was crucial for us after having used other companies that seemed to lose or ship the wrong items to customers. Never happens with our new guys. One thing we like is that when our outdoor products are ordered, they're being delivered all over the country. And with three centers nationally, they are able to send from the closest one to our customer to save on shipping costs as well as transit time, which makes everyone happy. Some of our products we find to be more popular along the East and West coasts, so we don't need to store anything in the fulfillment center in the middle of the US, and only the two on either coast. This helps immensely and makes us feel like their favorite clients. We're happy to answer any questions you might have.
