As of July 1, 2018, Google will be changing its search ranking algorithm, putting site speeds under scrutiny. 

If you have a slow site performing on mobile, you may want to take note as Google will be pushing slower sites down the search results.

It’s all part of its strategy to keep improving the user experience.  It’s been in effect on desktops for the past eight years but with the use of mobile devices substantially increasing, the move is now focusing on improving mobile performance.

Do you know your RAM from your HTML or your SSL from your MB? 

The technology world is vast and with so many acronyms now common place in business, do you know what they actually mean? Or do we just take them for granted as knowing what their definition is but not actually knowing what they stand for?

Let’s look at some of the most commonly used abbreviations.

RAM – Random Access Memory.  This allows you to run different programs at the same time at the same speed.  The more RAM you have the more you can run without programs being affected. 

It’s a bit of an IT jungle out there but it plays an important role in business, so it’s not something that can easily be pushed to one side. 

Rather than having to try and figure it out for yourself, why not let someone else do that for you?! 

We all get stuck in a rut sometimes – better the devil you know and all that but sometimes it does pay to switch.

We’re finding many clients are coming to us requesting Office 365.  Why?  Moving to a cloud-based platform like Office 365 has some great advantages.  Here are some of the reasons.

How hard can it be? Mistakes to avoid when building a website

A website is easy to build, right?  With so many ‘off the shelf’ designs available, it would seem anyone could build their own.  However, while there may be some truth in that, what makes a great website stand out?

Here are some of the mistakes you should try and avoid!

If you missed the article (http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-42872301) published a few weeks back about Microsoft disabling a flawed software update that was causing computers to reboot unexpectedly, here’s a recap as it’s still causing issues for our customers. 

If you’ve been impacted, please get in touch so that we can help fix the problem. 

What was the problem?

Great to see that one of our indirect clients appeared on the BBC news recently when the first ever budget flight from London to South America departed from London Gatwick.

BizWise IT provides the IUT support for the business that supplies all air crew to the Norwegian airline based at London Gatwick and Edinburgh. 

The no-frills way of flying is becoming an increasingly common occurrence with compacted seats and food and luggage costing a little extra.  However, it’s offering affordable travel and opening the departure gates for many more people.

It’s almost a daily occurrence.  Just like there are things going on behind closed doors which we don’t know about with Governments, politicans, wars being fought with bombs and bullets, cyber war is a very real thing lying beneath the surface, ready to fire off at any time. 

Consumers are far more likely to trust a business which has a website – in fact 89% do according to research. 

So, what are the top tips for ensuring you have the best window to your business via the world-wide web?

Ensure the domain name reflects your business name as much as possible. There’s no point having a name which bears no relevance to your business name or what your business is about.  If its confusing, then it’s likely to turn prospective customers away.

It’s now common place that most of the time, people use a mobile device to check out their next eatery, or where they can find a certain product or offering, so it’s fair to say that you want your website to be able to perform effectively on all manner of devices. 

Whether it’s a smart phone, tablet, or desktop, your website must be compatible and consistent across all platforms. There’s nothing more frustrating than having to scroll up, down, left, and right on a website that isn’t responsive just to get an idea of all the content.
