Regardless of how many employees you have or the industry you work in, one of the most crucial steps you can take to help expand your business is to improve your company’s IT infrastructure. The better your company’s IT services and products are, the easier it will be for your organization to stay ahead of the competition in what is now the digital age. To begin, you will need to invest in new computers for the office.


Here are a few considerations to make while shopping around for new office computers:


  • Mobility – When purchasing new office computers, you will need to decide whether you want to provide your employees with laptop or desktop computers. The obvious advantage of laptop computers is the amount of mobility they offer. However, if you are concerned about your employees taking the computers home or using them for personal business while away from the office, consider desktop computers instead.


  • Performance – To ensure that your new office computers do not hamper employee productivity, look for a laptop or desktop that comes with enough power to run the latest software and apps. We recommend looking for computers that come with at least 4GB of DDR2 or DDR3 SDRAM and a Dual-core or Quad-Core CPU.


  • Storage – While looking for office computers, do not focus too heavily on the amount of internal storage space that a particular model comes with. That’s because a professional IT services company can provide you with managed backup and cloud computing services to ensure that all of your company’s vital information is securely stored in an off-site server.
