Yesterday I received a phone call from a client. Apparently their receptionists phone was broken. Now they don’t operate in a normal manner where there is a receptionist that runs a switchboard.

Priority one is to get you back to work. One of the truths in the tech world is this… Not all problems can be resolved on the spot. Sometimes research is needed to determine the best way to resolve a problem. Enter parallel problem-solving. The first priority is always to get the person back to work as soon as possible.

You just need 1 username and password to access all of your business apps wherever they are. Single sign-on also known as SSO can help your business in the following ways.
This week I did my annual Well Man Visit.
It's my once a year check in with the doctor to see how I'm doing.
