training_made_painless_114046_211076-150x150Whatever business you’re in, you know what a spectacular pain arranging training can be. First, you’ve got to find a relevant SME (Subject Matter Expert). He or she probably doesn’t live in your city, so there’s transportation to arrange,schedules to juggle, possibly lunch to cater, and all the while, the various projects that your teams are working on are sitting idle. It can be a lesson in frustration. Is it any wonder that the whole notion of training has gotten a bad name?

Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be that way any longer.

The nature of education is changing. The Internet has given us a paradigm shift that too few small to medium sized businesses are taking advantage of. One of the pivotal elements in that paradigm shift is the webinar. If you’re not making extensive use of them to keep your people trained, you’re missing a huge opportunity, and needlessly complicating your life.

The best part? If you’re technically savvy, or have someone on staff who is, you can easily make your own, high-quality webinars. That matters because sometimes, it’s just not possible to find a subject matter expert who can teach your people anything new, especially if you’re dealing with new, groundbreaking innovations.

The main point though, is that webinars are a simple, cost effective, web-based way to handle training that removes most of the headaches and hassles involved with training. Your employees can take them at their own pace, whenever they can work it into their schedules, they are easily trackable, and you can even incorporate a testing element into them, in order to verify that the information was actually understood and retained.

There are a number of companies producing world class, high production value, web-based training content that are well worth looking into. If you’re not sure how to proceed, consult with a specialist today to see how they can help you get rid of headaches, handle training more efficiently and effectively and ultimately, get your team through it and back on the job.

Rob has provided technology support to my law practice for over seven years.  He is knowledgeable, personable and incredibly responsive. When I need his help in a hurry, he responds quickly and always fixes the issues. I am not particularly adept when it comes to office technology, so I rely on Rob for his explanations and suggestions.  He is proactive in his approach, and his solutions have been economical and extremely helpful in making my office run smoothly. I highly recommend TechNet Computing for tech support.

We are a small non-profit organization that does it’s own IT and web design in-house. We first called on Technet Computing a few years ago when we wanted to upgrade our internal server network and have been customers ever since. We appreciate the knowledge owner Rob Lloyd delivers in a timely and friendly manner. If something goes wrong we know he’s just a phone call away and makes every effort to come to our office as quickly as possible. We highly recommend Technet Computing for all your office IT needs.

On Tuesday, November 11, 2014, I arrived at my office to begin my day.  When I sat down at my computer, my screen was BLUE and filled with old DOS prompts….I immediately inquired as to whether anyone had been using my computer and the response was no…..

As I tried to reboot, I soon realized that something was drastically wrong. We had recently hired a computer consulting company to oversee our network. I was told someone would get back to me as the head technician was in Las Vegas at a seminar. No one got back to me and I sat unable to do very much.

The next day I was told that my machine had been hacked into with an encryption virus and I had to pay a ransom to get all of my encrypted files unlocked! Our computer consulting company suggested we pay the ransom and move on!! After doing some research, I discovered that this was not the solution and I obviously needed to find a new computer consultant!

On Friday, November 14th, a friend referred me to TechNet Computing. I spoke with Rob Lloyd, who did not know anything about my firm, but he graciously said he would do his best to stop by. I really did not hold out much hope that I would ever hear from him again as he explained he was on his way to a client in Bridgeport. Much to my surprise, he contacted me in the early afternoon and was in our office at 3:30 p.m. He took my computer with him and worked on it over the weekend. Although, the news was not good, he gave us great advice. His prompt response to my calamity was in and of itself enough for me to sign on with TechNet Computing.

By mid-December, I had a new computer, Rob was able to restore my files from an old off-site backup and I was back to where I was! Rob also uncovered several problems with our network and resolved each and every one.

We now have a monthly contract with TechNet Computing. Any problems that we might have with our computers are addressed by Rob Lloyd almost immediately and always within an hour or two either in person or by remote. He is extremely easy to talk to and you can even understand the answer to any question you might have. He always makes a point to speak to you in layman’s terms and not in a computer guru’s terms! I would recommend Rob Lloyd and TechNet Computing to anyone who is in the market for an excellent reliable computer consulting company!!
