Local business makes working from home easier

Posted: Updated:

A lot of people are transitioning or have already switched to working from home. Blue Layer is making the undertaking a little less stressful with an easy set up.

From managing I.T. service, to cyber-security, and phone systems, the business model for Blue Layer I.T. hasn't changed, but the call volume has increased.

"The need to set up laptops quickly, ipads quickly, or VPN connections or making sure that new remote connectivity is secure or that people can continue to function their essential businesses throughout this crisis," Blue Layer Chief Operating Officer Michael Strong said.

Strong said a lot of collaborative software is popular, but it's a challenge they're willing to take on.

"Businesses who want to add on laptops and extend their servers, and expand their capabilities rapidly, it's a hard find right now to buy a lot of good, new equipment," Strong said.

From problems like not being able to print or open an app, the I.T. staff can help you solve it from a distance.

"Not needing to send out a technician out to someone's office to fix something electronically, we can do that remotely through remote support software," Strong said.

Even if you're technologically challenged, the team is there to support.

"Everybody is increasingly patient and willing to go the extra mile to make sure we can take care of everyone," Strong said.

He said be careful, scammers have ramped up their efforts to take advantage of you during this time.

"Continue to be a good human fire wall and practice those best practices of 'think before you click,'" Strong said.

The technicians are available 24/7 for easy access and emergency support.
