Everything in the business world moves faster than the speed of sound. Mobile technology has become mainstream because the people that use it are constantly on the move and traveling to make their meetings and deals. In the midst of this IT hub, you often forget that technology breaks down and may put you in an awkward position. Thankfully, there are couriers of technology that can help. They deliver replacement software and hardware quickly such that the daily flow of your business remains relatively uninterrupted.
Look for the following qualities in a technology courier before you choose to hire one for your emergency needs:
1. How Fast Is Fast?
If the courier company says they will have your hardware and software to you in hours and not days, that is exactly what they will do. Most technology couriers deliver replacement hardware in less than forty-eight hours, and they can deliver software electronically in significantly less time than that.
Guaranteed delivery within a specified period means the courier will work harder and faster to get the products and services to you, otherwise it means a financial loss for them because they will have to reimburse you for part or all of the shipping charges.
2. What Products and Services Do the Couriers Provide?
You want a full-service, complete product line such that your computers, regardless of operating systems, can be replaced or transported to a qualified repair shop. Transportation of devices that need repair should allow you choices of where you want your items to go.
You should have the option of borrowing technology for a time until your own items are fixed, and then the courier can take the items back or give you the option to purchase them. In short, your chosen courier should give you all of the technology options you can possibly get to keep your business running and make it as convenient as possible for you to get them.
Before you make a request of a technology courier, make sure you know the distance limitations. Many courier companies, in order to provide high quality and timely services, limit how far their couriers will travel. It may be in your best interests to select a courier that is closer to your present location than it is to select a favorite courier who is too far away to quickly deliver what you need and when you need it.
Getting a computer virus can really slow you down, especially if you depend on your computer for school or work. That’s why, when I was in school, I made an effort to learn how to get rid of viruses and how to prevent them. I know that many people are afraid to try to fix their own computer problems. That makes sense when you’re talking about the delicate components that make up the physical computer, but virus removal is definitely something that you can learn to do for yourself. I started this blog to help you learn how. You’ll be surprised by how easily you can learn to prevent viruses and solve most virus-related problems.
