Google claims to process around 3.5 billion search queries per day, or 1.2 trillion searches per year.

How is information about Google relevant enough to be MyTek's Phoenix Tech Services Tip of the Week?

As CEO of MyTek, a Phoenix business IT support services company, I was amazed at how O365 cloud based software absolutely revolutionized our business. It can revolutionize for your organization as well! It connects your team to collaborate, manage projects, reach out to customers, and even cash flow. This week’s small business tip to revolutionize how you do business will discuss some of the best features of O365 and how it can positively impact your workflow and your bottom line.
Small Business Productivity is Key to Phoenix Business IT Support
Productivity is the primary goal of just about any office, and O365 can help reach this goal through its' powerful array of apps. One application that small businesses often overlook is the "Teams" app, which allows staff to collaborate in real time in threaded chat, and reach out to customers through Skype integration with video and audio options. Additionally Teams creates a true hub for teamwork. Word, Excel, PowerPoint, SharePoint, OneNote, and Planner, are all built into Microsoft Teams so people have all the information and tools they need at their fingertips. Real time collaboration can take place. As I mentioned previously, getting the MyTek team all working in Teams has revolutionized how we get business done. Using it has increased our productivity, helped us manage our projects, eliminated repetition, and greatly enhanced our internal communication. Find out more about O365 HERE.
MyTek Phoenix Business IT Support "Gem"
Another powerful example of how Teams has revolutionized MyTek is by helping everyone stay aligned and motivated toward achieving our business objectives. We integrated a cash flow planning tool into Teams, and the MyTek leadership team is updated in real time regarding cash flow and its' impact on revenue projections. This keeps our teams motivated to hit their goals, and ceates a sense of accountability for each MyTek team to pull their weight in hitting their goals. As we provide Phoenix business IT support, it is one of the "gems" we share with our clients on ways to revolutionize the way small businesses get their work done.
