      What Our Clients Say

      • Fantastic Support
        Portsmouth

        As the technology and computerization continued to grow in our practice, so did our I.T. support needs. The response time from the previous company that we were using was getting longer and longer, and this became very frustrating. Unfortunately, when a practice is completely dependent upon technology, a slow response time from an I.T. support company is crippling. After I talked with Chris from...

      Three of the Most Helpful SaaS Applications Out There

      The Big Three SaaS Applications

      Since SaaS platforms are hosted in the cloud rather than on your company’s physical hardware, you can still reap the benefits without dealing with any hassle associated with hosting, management, and maintenance. In fact, the cloud in general can have a dramatic impact on your bottom line, provided you implement it intelligently into your business model. Let’s look at three ways SMBs can utilize SaaS platforms.

      Marketing Automation

      Small businesses can take advantage of marketing automation software to streamline processes that would otherwise be monotonous, repetitive, and time-consuming. This allows companies to automate a wide swath of marketing-related tasks like email marketing, social media management, lead generation, and customer segmentation. You can then use this information to launch campaigns that can help you fully realize the potential of these efforts.

      HR Management

      Human resources are notorious for having many time-consuming and wasteful processes in terms of energy. Some of the common issues businesses run into include employee onboarding, time and attendance tracking, payroll management, performance reviews, and so on. With SaaS, you can automate and manage these tasks so they are done more efficiently.

      Project Management

      How often are you stuck during a project implementation simply because many tasks are involved that all compound on one another? SaaS project management tools hosted in the cloud can help employees and businesses better manage their time and resources, allowing for seamless collaboration and file sharing at the same time. With clear processes carefully outlined in a project management solution, you can ensure that your projects are completed in a timely manner.

      Can We Help?

      If your business is ready to implement SaaS solutions, Patriot Tech Services Inc. can assist with the process from start to finish. To learn more about how you can implement SaaS and change your operations for the better, be sure to contact us at 877-874-4629.

      Tip of the Week: Making Your Network VoIP-Friendly

      How to Prepare Your Network for a VoIP Implementation

      Ensure Your Network Connection is Stable

      As the name would suggest, Voice over Internet Protocol uses the Internet instead of a standalone infrastructure. For this reason, it is vital that your business’ Internet connection is ready to support this added demand. Otherwise, your vital communications will only create bottlenecks in your network.

      So, how do you make sure your Internet is up to the task?

      There are a few steps you need to take. First, you need to know how stable your network is, as a VoIP connection will take up a lot of resources. Therefore, running a speed test will help you establish whether or not your network can support VoIP at all in its current state. This speed test will give you a few important metrics:

      • Latency - how long the data packets containing the VoIP data take to reach you
      • Jitter - how consistent your latency is
      • Speed - how much data can be sent
      • Packet Loss - how many data packets are lost in transit

      If these results fall short of your expectations, it may be time to upgrade your connection.

      Equip Your Business Properly

      Similarly, you must ensure that your network infrastructure is up to snuff. Older pieces of equipment could likely stand for an upgrade, so consider switching to those using Wi-Fi 5 and 6 that are compatible with QoS (Quality of Service) features. If possible, consider using a hardwired ethernet connection for your VoIP needs.

      Of course, you also need to keep your business secure, and that includes your VoIP implementation. You may want to lean on your business’ trusted IT resource for assistance in securing your network against cyberattacks.

      Consider Additional Infrastructure Upgrades

      On a related note, you should turn to this resource for help with adapting your infrastructure to help facilitate the use of VoIP in your business. For instance, it’s totally possible to create a virtualized local area network in addition to your bog-standard local area network to give your VoIP data packets a prioritized place to travel.

      These Are Just a Few Ways to Help Improve Your Use of VoIP

      Turn to Patriot Tech Services Inc. for more! We help TriState businesses with technology needs and challenges of all kinds, and we can help you with yours. Give us a call at 877-874-4629 to find out how.

      How to Convert and Edit a PDF File

      Create Your PDF Document

      You can create a PDF from any document you have through various methods. The best way to do it is to try to print the document out, except we’re not trying to print it out. When you select Print, choose Save as PDF for the location. You can’t edit these PDFs afterwords, though, so you’ll have to edit the original document and make a new PDF to make changes.

      Convert a PDF to a Google Doc or MS Word Document

      You might need to edit your PDF text, in which case you just open the PDF file in a program that can handle that. Your business likely uses a cloud-based productivity suite like Google Docs or Microsoft Word, both of which have the capability to edit PDFs in their own ways.

      First, you need to change your PDF to a Word format, which will require an Adobe Acrobat license. If you have that, then you can open your PDF, right-click, and select Export. You can export it as a Microsoft Word document or even a PowerPoint or Excel file, then select Convert to save your new .docx file. You can change it in Word before saving it as a PDF again.

      You can pull off a similar trick in Google Docs, but you might run into issues with lists, tables, and footnotes. You can drag your PDF into Google Drive to upload the file. Then, you right-click on it and select Open with > Google Docs. The editable Google Doc of the same file will save with the same name as the PDF. It will look a bit different, so if you want to minimize the file changes, make sure you’re uploading a document with basic fonts and formatting.
