Ten years ago, when we moved into our current Douglas Ave offices, phone calls were the norm. Today, emails dominate our electronic airwaves as the main form of communication!
As our regular summer project, we happily tackle some form of Technology EVERY YEAR —
A few years back, after an over caffeinated multiple day off site, out of state event, we (I signed up for) tackled the New Total Vault AND a new Web Page – a bit too much at once…
Last year, cloud based email system and client record keeping, relieving our server of stress and capacity….. Several hiccups along the way, so good call to take this one in singularity.
This summer, 4x speed – kinda!
10/100 Updated to 100/400
Upload and download speeds … this may be backwards, but the new system is faster and hopefully more efficient – Tech friends apologize, we are financial planners – but enjoy what technology does for us!
In true, strangled by the slowest dog fashion, while we have increased our speed four times, our hardware was maxed at 10/100!
New hardware ordered and promised!
Yes, we are nerds, but in today’s environment, remote is the norm — happily we comply!
Today, is Friday and our new hardware AND 4X speed was to be done for sure by Wednesday – the 24th!
Oh, did we mention our phones are VOIP – which means they should also get clarity with the new 4X speed– eventually!
Ahhhh…. a digression (or rant) may have occurred — rest assured in the not too distant future, we will receive your emails 4X faster than before, and hear your calls clearer – happily! But today is a Friday – a hot Friday, and the second of five days of a national tennis tournament in a neighboring city –
Enjoy your Friday, your weekend and the Summer- Talk to you next week!
Have a Great “Soon to be Four Times Faster” Day!
