Want to be more efficient? Follow these tips

Business Technology | July 24, 2014

Want your small business to operate as efficiently as it can? Then you’ve got to use technology just as efficiently. Luckily, the Web site TechnologySchools.org has a lot of advice on how small business owners can make use of technology to boost their sales.

The right passwords

The first tip from TechnologySchools might seem obvious: You must rely on the right passwords to safeguard your business’ computers and the data you store on them. This means selecting passwords you can remember but that hackers won’t guess. TechnologySchools states that the strongest passwords are more than eight characters long, include upper- and lowercase letters, and include numbers and symbols.

Keeping your passwords safe

Of course, creating the right passwords is just one step. TechnologySchools recommends, also, that you keep your passwords safe. Don’t, for instance, write your passwords on a single slip of paper that you keep in your wallet. What happens if you lose that paper? What if someone nabs it? The best choice is to use a password-storage service such as LastPass or Dashlane to manage your log-ins and passwords.

Keep your computer fast

You can’t be nearly as productive with a slower computer. Fortunately, TechnologySchools provides advice for speeding up older machines. Every month you should delete programs you don’t use, drop old files, defragment the hard drive and perform a registry scan to identify damaged or corrupted files you can then delete.
