IT support HoustonLast week Microsoft announced Office 365 Personal, a version of the cloud-based subscription service that will become available this spring. Microsoft Office 365 launched in July 2013 and has over 3.5 million subscribers. Office 365 Personal may help Microsoft expand their reach even further.

Microsoft Office 365 Personal will be available for around $70/year. Users can subscribe monthly for $6.99 or annually for $69.99. It will include 60 minutes of Skype calls per month, 20 GB of additional OneDrive storage, and access to the most recent versions of Office. Office 365 Personal will allow users to run Office applications on one computer (PC or Mac) as well as one tablet. It isn’t clear yet, though, whether it can be used only on a Windows tablet or can be used on an Apple or Android tablet as well. Regardless, it seems Office will be available for both iPads and Android Tablets this Spring as well, though clear details haven’t been released. Read More

Windows XP End of Life

by Matt Harryman

office technologyAs it often happens with office technology, changes are frequent. This is one that is major as it may affect many businesses. Windows XP End of Life is almost here. As of April 8, 2014, Windows will no longer offer support for Windows XP. Is your business ready?

For businesses that haven’t yet migrated their system off of Windows XP, they are already in the window of “last minute” updates as many businesses started 18 months in advance or more. That doesn’t mean it is too late, though! It is still strongly advised to migrate from Windows XP as soon as possible.

What does this mean for those still running Windows XP?

Well, since Microsoft will no longer offer support for Windows XP after April 8th, this means updates will no longer be available as well. This can affect a few different areas: security, compliance, lack of support, and hardware manufacturer support.

TLC Launches New Website Development Services

by Matt Harryman

mearsTLC Launches a New Website Design Division to further assist our growing demand in web development.

How your business makes an impression is important, and one of the first impressions people will get of your business is online. More and more people are turning to the Internet first before deciding whether or not they want to contact you or make the drive over there. If your website isn’t well designed and appealing, chances are high they will hit the “back” button and go to the next one on the list.

In addition to website aesthetics, there are certain aspects to a website that are key for a business such as contact information. If your contact information isn’t easy to find, many times people will not go looking for it.

In today’s digital age, a website is more than just a space on the Internet to house your information – it is YOUR space on the Internet to capitalize and make the most of it. Great websites mean more prospects, leads, customers, conversions, and a chance to build your brand and rapport as well. Having a website with the right keywords also means better search results so when someone is looking for what you offer, you will be front and center on the search engines when they hit “Enter.”

Another advantage of having a highly functional website is having a website that works for you around the clock. If you sell products, you can sell them on your website even when you’re asleep! You can continue to spread the word about your business around the clock as well.

This is just another way that TLC is growing to continue offering more of what businesses need. Take a look at our Web Design Services to learn more about the website development services we offer and see examples of our work. If your business is searching for a new website that generates leads make sure you give us a call today!
