If you have only a few computers, and think they should
be doing more for your business, you are probably right. Today's
businesses need to be connected to the Internet and need to have
e-mail and file sharing between employees and computers. This example
shows how TREX can help such a small company get online quickly,
without breaking the budget.
A small building contractor
A building contractor's office currently utilizes
two computers. They have a high quality laser printer attached to
one computer, and a color laser jet on the other. They share one
phone line to access the Internet, allowing only one to connect
at a time. They also share a single e-mail account from their Internet
provider, where they also have a small web site with an obscure
TREX provides assistance
TREX started by reviewing their IT situation, and
recommended simple changes that can make their office run smother.
Using their existing equipment, and a few inexpensive upgrades,
their two computers were linked together. Files are now easily shared
between the two computers, and either computer can print from either
printer. The Internet connection was configured to be shared from
one computer, so both can utilize the dial up connection simultaneously
to access the Internet and e-mail. TREX explained the option of
replacing the second phone line with a higher speed DSL connection,
but the company felt this was not the best place to put their current
budget. TREX assisted them in registering their company name for
their Internet site, and provided some upgrades to their site, including
a form to automatically collect e-mail from potential customers.
After further discussions, TREX realized that the
majority of time spent on the computer systems was in tracking project
status's and producing invoices. TREX was able to recommend a few
programs which would streamline their tracking and invoicing processes,
and present the advantages of each. When one was selected, TREX
assisted in the setup and configuration of the new software, and
helped to train the operators to use the software effectively. The
data could be accessed and modified from either computer at any
time, because they are now shared over a local network. This allowed
for less time spent on preparing invoicing and provided better financial
tracking. Projects were scheduled more effectively and resources
utilized more efficiently.
