Web Conferencing

Feb 18, 17 Web Conferencing

Posted by in Technology

There have been many advances in the realm of teleconferencing over the past few years. The cost of web conferencing systems has decreased, while the quality of video has made dramatic improvements. While businesses have discovered that teleconferencing can help them save time and money, everyday people are also finding that this technology can help them stay in touch better than ever. While there are many important events that family members would love to attend, distance and scheduling doesn’t always allow people to be there for their loved ones. However, many families have learned that video conferencing is an ideal solution for those who couldn’t otherwise see the weddings, graduations, and other landmark moments in their family. Such communication options have also allowed soldiers who are stationed overseas to remain in contact with families back home, allowing them the opportunity to see their children grow up and celebrate birthdays and other special moments. Nothing beats being there in person, but for some, teleconferencing is the next best thing....

How cleaning your furniture helps prevent the spread of COVID-19

Jul 17, 20 How cleaning your furniture helps prevent the spread of COVID-19

Posted by in Health

Blog provided by Wicker Paradise Even before the current pandemic, cleaning your furniture was a healthy practice that helped prevent the build-up of dirt, dust, and other materials that attract germs and allergens, which cause disease and discomfort. With the advent of COVID-19, it has become much more crucial to clean and disinfect your often-used furniture, since the coronavirus has been known to live on common household surfaces. According to the research, the virus can stay on surfaces such as metal for 5 days and on wood for 4 days. The virus can also stay on surfaces such as plastic and stainless steel for 2 to 3 days. Because of this, it is crucial to clean and disinfect your indoor and outdoor furniture regularly. Cleaning removes dirt and other materials that attract germs, but disinfecting is necessary to kill any germs left after cleaning. Cleaning can be done with a sponge or cloth dipped in a soap and water solution, while disinfecting should be done with potent germ-killing solutions that can get rid of the coronavirus on contact. The EPA has a list of disinfectants effective against the coronavirus, while the CDC also has directions for making homemade disinfectant solutions out of water and bleach or alcohol. Be sure to stay safe and follow the instructions as you keep your house and furniture clean and healthy. If you need any new indoor or outdoor wicker furniture during this time, Wicker Paradise is still available to meet all of your wicker furniture needs.

Inefficient Ways to Use Your Command Center

Feb 16, 19 Inefficient Ways to Use Your Command Center

Posted by in Technology

Summary: A command center is designed to help your employees work more efficiently but improper use can do just the opposite. Command centers are highly sophisticated systems that a company can invest in to help with some of their daily operations. Although the stations have been designed to make the organization more efficient, there are still ways the organization can use them improperly. Too Much Multitasking A simple way you could be ineffectively incorporating your command center workstation into your business is by having your employees multitask too much. Researchers have studied the human mind to gain a better understanding of how people work best. The resulting studies have shown that multitasking is an inefficient way to operate. If an employee of yours is switching between working on the LCD video wall, working through spreadsheets, and sending emails throughout the say, said employee is constantly redirecting their attention. If each employee has too many roles to switch between, you run the risk of each employee not being able to work deeply on a given task. To minimize errors and help each employee work better and faster, create an environment that promotes this kind of behavior. Not Enough Communication Depending on your setup, your organization’s command center could have several people operating it at once. Much like a team sport, a group of people working together to achieve a similar goal requires clear communication. A sophisticated system from ConstantTech.com will not be of much use if the employees operating it are unable to work together. Voicing concerns, calling out signals, and keeping everyone on the same page can do wonders for your...

Intermediary steps when migrating to the cloud

Jan 08, 19 Intermediary steps when migrating to the cloud

Posted by in Web Development & Hosting

Ask any CIO and he will tell you that if they have not migrated to the cloud, they are doing so, or in the process of planning out the migration. Moving your server and application infrastructure offsite is now a standard goal. We know the current status is an in-house server room with servers, racks, air conditioning, and everything else that goes with it. We also know that the end-result is an empty server room with everything either at an LA colocation offsite data center or in the cloud. The question is, how do you manage the period between? When all your applications run off in-house servers, the answer is easy. Colocation. You do not need to buy anything, or rent any expensive services. You need to move your existing equipment from your server room to another data center like Rack Alley. Your applications will still run on your servers, except your servers will now operate at someone else’s facility, where everything from air conditioning, to fire suppression will be state of the art. Eventually you can start moving workloads from these servers to cloud applications that don’t have any specific infrastructure. The remaining workloads can either remain on collocated servers or transitioned to newer hardware. The only drawback with the approach is that you will essentially have two migrations. One from in-house to colocation, and from colocation to cloud/colocation. However, given the benefits, the extra effort is...

What to do before an EDI implementation

Jan 04, 19 What to do before an EDI implementation

Posted by in Business Services

Whenever you have a large project deployment or implementation on the horizon, it is important to take stock of steps you need to take beforehand. Here are three important steps before an EDI implementation: Step 1 Catalog all existing software developed in-house or a by a third-party that does not have built-in or plugin based support from the EDI software. In each of these cases, an adaptor or integration module will need to be developed so that it can interface. However, if the communication is solely with the ERP, then that application can be ignored. Step 2 Look at any upcoming changes to company structure or procedures, especially those that will impact trading or financial transactions. Often, companies make the decision to go ahead and then introduce a structural change that impacts the project. Changes like that can cost a lot of time, money, along with potential opportunity costs. Step 3 Finally, locate vendors who will support all stages of the integration with the EDI software. All vendors should supply primary focal points who will coordinate with the integration team and make the necessary changes. When no vendor exists for an application, then look at replacement immediately to prevent any delays. Article by Act Data Services, Inc. 1-800-ACT-DATA.

Tips for Succeeding as a Freelance Animator

Jan 04, 19 Tips for Succeeding as a Freelance Animator

Posted by in Business Services

Summary: Freelance animation can give you more flexibility than working in a traditional studio. Keeping some guidelines in mind can improve your chances of getting work regularly. Freelance work is popular because of all of the freedom it gives people. Although freelance work may seem appealing, there are some big disadvantages that could steer you away. A major downside of freelance work is the fact that your work is not always guaranteed. Since a freelance animator’s paycheck likely arrives after a project has been completed, your ability to consistently get projects depends on how well you work. Never Stop Learning Technology is constantly evolving. New software, new techniques, and new tools are coming out quite regularly. Even if you do not intend to use every new tool that comes out, you should at least try to keep up to date with what is going on. You may stumble upon something that can improve your workflow, whether that be video wall integration for reviewing rough cuts or finding a plugin that helps you get your ideas out much quicker. This can give you a competitive edge over other animators searching for clients. Be Flexible One of the most important parts about doing work for someone else is creating something that the client is pleased with. Big businesses like ConstantTech.com need to be able to work to meet their customers’ needs. Similarly, if a client of yours wants you to make revisions to fit what they had in mind, you should be able to revisit the work to create a product they are satisfied with. A happier client will be more likely to recommend you to other potential...
