Sorry for the lack of posts over the past few days. Things were a little hectic last week and are starting the same way this week.
Last week I attended a round table conference at the Software and Information Technology Association of Kansas (SITAKS). The event was held in Lawrence on the KU campus and was a great opportunity to learn and share. It was designed as a way technology leaders and educators could come together to discuss what Information Technology employers need from their prospective employees. Being a member of both groups, I felt it was a perfect fit for Proper Technology. The discussion was lively and focused mainly on the need for good talent to remain here in Kansas. Many employers are worried that qualified employees will leave their company for greener pastures in Silicon Valley. The 24-40 age group was identified as a demographic of employees that would be more likely to plant (or keep) their roots in Kansas.
In other notes, I’m seeing some growth in the IT services side of the business. By providing low network consulting rates and eliminating minimum service charges, we’re aiming to help small businesses lower their support costs while still maintaining effective technology.
If you are a small business owner or manager looking to reduce your support costs, give me a call. I can schedule a free onsite visit to evaluate your technology and find ways to help you keep costs under control. Call Proper at (316) 337-5628.
Look for a new tip here tomorrow!
