If so, well…..you’re not alone.  Many small business owners feel they have very little resources to help them navigate the vast tech landscape, according to a recent study.

The report, from Brother International Corporation and non-profit SCORE was conducted by Wakefield Research and covered 500 small business owners with fewer than 100 employees.  It revealed that 64 percent of small business owners still feel “overwhelmed” when it comes to technology.

Small business owners feel they have no one to turn to for tech guidance.  The majority have no dedicated IT support.  In fact, the study shows that 59 percent of those surveyed said there are “insufficient resources” available in small business communities to help them.

The team at Techno Advantage prides itself on being a top quality, outsourced, on-call IT department.  We are constantly looking for ways to serve and educate busy small business owners on IT related matters.

To help you feel less overwhelmed, here are 5 Tech Tidbits for small business:

1.Don’t scrimp on technology

Your business relies on your communication channels not breaking down.  Computer and network glitches can cost you financially.  Hone your business processes to understand the technology you do and don’t need and then get a second opinion.

2. Get in the cloud

Data space can be a huge issue for small businesses.  But you don’t need to purchase expensive kits to get around this.  Many small businesses are opting to outsource data storage or choosing to use a free service.

3. Make sure you’re mobile

Business won’t wait for you to be back in the office.  Smartphone and tablet are rapidly overtaking desktop use in the workplace.  The workforce is more mobile than ever and your business practice needs to reflect this.  Ensure you are contactable and can do your transactions on the run.

4. Security is key to tech success

Have a strong password policy and know what data needs protecting.

5. Get the right support

Don’t outsource your tech to someone you can’t get hold of in the middle of the night.

The team at Techno Advantage wants to be your small business IT resource and partner (yes, even in the middle of the night).  If you’re one of the many small business owners who feels overwhelmed by technology, why wait?
