Growing up is hard to do…


by: Netcelerate | Published: November 08, 2016 18:37

Growth is one of those things that just about every business owner has an opinion on. No doubt, so do you. It’s what we all want, though, right?

We all want to be able to grow a company into a strong and beautiful organization, but along the way, there are bound to be some bumps in the road. Or a lot of bumps. There could be potholes...whatever.

It might seem a stretch to think that the business phone system can actually help with something like that, but ...


  • Getting the bugs out: Part two

    In the last segment, we detailed a few of the things to do if and when you or your company were hit with a ransomware attack. With this post, we’ll make sure to give you some more options so you have the full breadth of what to do in the event of one of these malicious events.

    Consider a new AV

    AV (or antivirus) software should, theoretically, protect your system against one of these types of attacks. However, not all AV software is created equal. If you h...

    Extortion of business owners isn’t exactly something that’s new.

    Nowadays, strong-arming tends to happen in a little more… digital sense. Ransomware, the viral software that locks up your computer unless you pay the crooks to “unlock” it, is on the rise all over the world, and even more so here in Canada.

    But, you ask, I’ve never been hit with ransomware… I wouldn’t even know what to do!

    Yes, imaginary business owner person. We know, and we’re lo...


  • Ransomware Prevention

    Hello everyone! Welcome to the first installment of our three-part series dealing with our dear, beloved (*cough*) friend, ransomware. We’re so glad that you could make it.

    First, a quick overview of where we left off: Ransomware is a type of malware (malicious software) that is transferred onto a computer via a corrupted attachment in an email or something similar in nature.

    “What gets measured, gets managed.”

    Collectively, we just saw, like, thirty of you roll your eyes. Yes, we get it. This little gem is one of those sayings that tends to drive certain people in the office a little crazy. And we get it. Numbers are not the whole story.

    But let’s face reality here, for just a second, okay? Numbers, whether or not we want to have them shoved in our faces by overbearing managers who have watched Full Metal Jacket way too many t...


  • I like to move it, move it!

    by: Netcelerate | Published: October 01, 2016 14:32

    We’re not sure if you’ve noticed or not, but mobility is sort of a thing now. Ever watched a Gary Vaynerchuk video? That guy’s phone has started to meld to his hand.

    And for good reason. Well, maybe. Depends on what you think of Snapchat.

    These days, mobility options for a business's employees are becoming more and more prevalent. So much so, in fact, that VoIP providers have begun offering options to make work life easier for those mobile junkies in your offic...
