Do I need to update my phone system?
I hear this time and time again, "we have been told we need to upgrade our phone system because we are moving to the NBN or Business SIP".
Well, the short answer is No. You should not have to update your phone system purely because you are changing to NBN and we find that this is in fact a sales ploy by some unscrupulous individuals. A phone system can be a big investment to any business and to be told you have to replace it when its only a few years old, might not be entirely true. Of course, this blog is not a one size fits all and there may be other extenuating circumstances but if you have been told this and you are quite simply "unsure" and don't want to trust the word of a salesmen, give us a call - obligation free - we are all too happy to provide you with unbiased and experienced advice.
Commercial Displays VS Consumer TVs
24th June 2020
Many people assume that there are no differences between the TVs in our homes and the digital displays in business spaces like retail stores and public signage. The fact is, there are many differences in the process to manufacturer a commercial grade display and why these are so important to making the right choice. So why use commercial grade displays? Designed for 24/7 useMost consumer displays run from 1-8 hours per day. On the other hand businesses usually require 12-15 hours of operation per day. Commercial displays are specifically designed for these extended-use applications with premium components that eliminate screen burn and also provide the display with better cooling mechanisms. Extra inputs to accommodate for more advanced network connectionsNot every business is the same. Devices in business are required to be integrated or a seamless transaction or customer experience. Having extra inputs in a commerical display allows the flexibility for majority of business cases and allows for future growth and updates with technology. Built in OPS slots are also available for a true all-in-one standalone deployment. Enhanced durability to suit business environmentsCommercial displays are toughened and treated with high grade anti-glare process to withstand workplace environments. For example commercial displays could be installed where customers could possibly bump while walking past. The components used are of higher quality extending the screens lifespan which will translate to a better ROI for business owners. Powerful processors for on-board applications such as digital signageCommercial displays are typically equipped with better on-board OS systems able to handle more demanding applications required for business. Warranty covers use for commercial applicationsSupport for commercial displays far exceeds the support for consumer TV’s. This allows businesses to focus on their business while a technician can come on-site and fix the commercial display or replace required parts. Networking capabilitiesNetwork configuration on commercial displays usually allows for ,much better 2 way communication. Allowing not only for screens to reveice information from another source, but to send its own information back out. This is especially useful when a number of displays are required on the same network or centralised control. Longer display lifespanAlthough the cost of a commercial grade display is higher than purchasing a consumer TV. In the long run the components in commercial displays are designed to last longer and to withstand the elements of extended running times and many different business environments.

Do I need to update my office phone system?
10th October 2018
Do I need to update my phone system? I hear this time and time again, "we have been told we need to upgrade our phone system because we are moving to the NBN or Business SIP". Well, if your phones look like this, I would say yes, but in general the short answer is often No. You should not have to update your phone system purely because you are changing to NBN and we find that this is in fact a sales ploy by some unscrupulous individuals. A phone system can be a big investment to any business and to be told you have to replace it when its only a few years old, might not be entirely true. If your system is 8+ years, then there have been some marvellous advancements that are worth looking into. However, this blog is not a "one size fits all" and there may be other extenuating circumstances but if you have been told this and you are quite simply "unsure" and don't want to trust the word of a salesmen, give us a call - obligation free - we are all too happy to provide you with unbiased and experienced advice.
