As you may have heard, today Windows released its newest operating system, Windows 8. In the coming weeks we will be continuing to educate our clients on the pros, cons and changes associated with the new system through a series of emails, blog posts and a webinar. As with any new operating system we strongly recommend holding off on purchasing the Windows 8 upgrades or new computers running Windows 8 for at least a few months until the software has had time to be tested in the small business workplace.
Some potential concerns of switching to a brand new operating system for a small business are:
- Possible incompatibility with many business software packages critical to the operation of your business
- Possible incompatibility with printers, scanners and other various hardware.
- Radically different interface from older versions of Windows resulting in workflow disruption, additional training and user confusion.
Everon recommends the Windows 7 environment for all business PCs at the moment due to the tested stability and ease of functionality.
In the coming weeks keep your eyes peeled for further communication and invitations to an informative Windows 8 webinar to learn what you need to know about the new operating system.
If you have any specific concerns about Windows 8 and its impact to your business please feel free to contact your account manager today at 1.888.244.1748.
