GS-business-gears-interlocking-blue-300wSetting up a new Lenovo Helix for a client and the first thing after updating firmware that I did was install Windows 8.1 (Took literally all night). It made the machine usable in my opinion so my hope is to only get a call about how to use this thing once a week. ;-) While viewing some youtube reviews of the device I ran across someone saying that the best feature of 8.1 was syncing the start menu with your desktop background. I didn't get it until I did it. Now the start/metro experience is so much better, makes the metro start screen look like just an app launcher which is so much better. It just feels right.

Here is a link on how to do it. 

Train your users. Don't open unknown or unsolicited attachements! They could get hit with CryptoLocker and you could lose all of your data.

How much?  It's a reasonable question that you need answered, but nobody wants to tell you.  The reason they don't is that there are many variables that can make your Sage implementation cost more or less than someone else's, but we can give you a pretty good idea.  

You've been played before. You're vulnerable and nervous about opening up again. It wouldn't be the first time you've been lied to.

Back in 2011 we heard rumors that the iPad would be graced with Office's presence in 2012, and shortly thereafter we saw an actual photo of Office on an iPad. But... nothing. And then some more nothing. But it is coming ... promise.  Click here for more.

guy w-smartphonew300 h451CTIA stated last fall that the number of wireless subscriber connections in the U.S. outnumbers the population. If CTIA's data is correct, that means there are more smartphones, tablets, and wireless gadgets in the states than there are people. And globally, Cisco has predicited that mobile devices will outnumber humans this year. Read more about this trend at pcmag.com

30 Years of Rave Reviews

We’re getting rave reviews on the new e-newsletter. I just want to let you know how grateful we all are for your help on this project—your great direction, patience and support are invaluable.

We would NEVER have gone this far without you!

Since we switched hosts to Network Solutions, we've had nothing but continuous problems with email and sessions timing out preventing us from opening our online store. Joel went out of his way to solve our problem. This means the world to us. Joel listened and accommodated our needs first before…

Our Yardi conversion was challenging. Hiring Nims and in turn working with Marco was the smartest thing we did to assist in this transition. His contribution was priceless. My staff and Board both agree it would have been a nightmare without Nims (Marco).

I was going to say it was the smartest…

I’ve sent more than one shining Michael endorsement. The whole company kicks ass.

Can I tell you how we feel about Chris? He is the greatest. He goes way beyond the norm. We can't ask for better service and support. Chris has taken the time to teach me additional things to not only help him but us here which cuts the time we need him here to fix something I can do. Not many…

Since our bank told us we need to become PCI compliant, we found lots of holes and “open doors” on our servers, hosting, website etc. Chris closed up them and Tim has helped with the all the other annoying daily problems we have had, and they both do it with a smile and a reassuring, calming tone…

As someone who works remotely from a home office, connectivity and a reliable, functioning computer are absolutely critical to my ability to be able to perform. Recently my computer "crashed" and as you can imagine created great inconvenience. Your team of Joel, Tessa and Tim responded immediately.…

We are so pleased with the installation of our Shoretel system. The phones work great and James was able to customize the system to suit our somewhat unusual need of combine live person answering and automation. Both the phones and the software are user friendly and required little training. James…

At a time when it may seem like good customer service is at all time low and we hear so many negatives about many companies and their employees, it’s a pleasure to be able to send along our positive comments regarding Nims & Associates … and more specifically about Chris. Chris has worked our…

I worked with Nims when at another company ... you don't have to tell me what a fantastic company Nims is.

We are impressed with response times and the general aptitude of your support group. This stands in stark contrast to some of the experiences with other IT resources we’ve patronized in the past.

Nims and Associates are the best support company I have ever worked with. They get back to my every problem or question in record time. They have been able to help or fix every problem I have come up with. Bill and or Bob are very knowledgeable with all my MASS 200 problems. I would and have…

Thank you for assigning Don to handle our myriad of computer tasks throughout the year. His expertise and friendly can do personality are a cherished resource within our firm. Whenever the screen goes blank or freezes up we always think "Have no fear Don soon will be here" which he is and things…

We are very happy to have your company in place. Joel and Tony have been excellent. The Senior Management Team feels as though a great weight has been lifted from their shoulders and we are appreciative that our systems and software are in the hands of experts.

Thank you for explaning what you did in an understandable way. You're very patient working with such a small company and treating us as though we were a huge corporation.
