Showing SMBs How to Trade Oversized Lease Agreements for New Technology

News | Innovative Home Office Cybersecurity | Dominion Voice and Data

MIDLOTHIAN, VA– Announced today that the company is advising SMBs (small to mid-sized businesses) on how to fully leverage the benefits of a remote workforce, bolster employee satisfaction, reduce office space, while simultaneously strengthening the infrastructure of their organizations.

As the demand for remote workers continues to increase at an exponential rate, modern workplaces are noticing the shift towards more flexible, collaborative work environments. Highly educated organizations are positioning themselves ahead of this trend by investing in their technological infrastructure, so that they gain relevancy, attract top talent and secure their organizations for the future, instead of being caught holding onto the past.

“Whether you agree with remote workforce or not is inconsequential because it’s the future,” stated Chad Tester, COO of Dominion Voice and Data. “The real reason that remote working agreements are so controversial is because they highlight managerial and employee engagement issues. In other words, nothing can be swept under the rug, anymore. Management by proximity is being replaced by management through performance. This is a knowledge gap in the market and we’re attempting to shore it up within the business community so that our customers know exactly how to use technology to bolster employee engagement and to get more out of their team.”

Monitoring the Dark Web to Keep Customers Information Safe

MIDLOTHIAN, VA – Cybercrime is rapidly on the rise in the United States and SMBs need to know if their information is on the Dark Web. Sadly, it’s become commonplace to see reports in mainstream news whereby hundreds of millions of customers’ data has been breached by cyber criminals, that have successfully infiltrated networks and extracted sensitive data which inevitably leads to identity theft, corporate intrusion or any form of cyber abuse. Dominion Voice and Data has taken a proactive step forward to not only address this rampant source of criminal activity, but to put an end to its effect on SMBs.

While the Dark Web is not a household term, it’s poised to become one. The Dark Web is the part of the Internet that is “not Google-able.” The Dark Web forms a small part of the deep web, the part of the web not indexed by search engines. It attracts those who wish to act in secrecy, which usually includes those who are associated with illegal activity. It’s the best place to purchase illegal drugs, hire illicit acts or hire hackers to attack specific businesses. This is also where an organizations’ email addresses and passwords are put up for sale.

Replace Discontinued Phone Systems with Cloud Technology

Midlothian, VA – We have launched a campaign to educate our existing customers on a dilemma facing many growth-oriented business owners. It’s no secret that as technology continues to advance, antiquated phone systems become more obsolete each year. As time rolls on, lack of functionality becomes more pronounced, leaving business owners with outdated equipment that hinders productivity. As manufacturers move on to innovating and building better versions of their technology, business owners with older phone systems find a very tough time getting support, finding replacement parts and receiving maintenance.

The greatest risk facing these businesses is that when the outdated phone system stops working, which is usually once every 5 years, this causes costly downtime because the whole office shuts down and usually takes days to get back up and running. Most business owners shudder to imagine what it would be like to have their office phones down and how expensive it would be to have a team doing nothing at the office. While most unified communications providers simply let this happen to their customers, We have created a brand new program to solve this problem once and for all. The most exciting part is that not only does it solve this problem, but it prevents it from ever happening again throughout the entirety of the relationship, by taking telephony to the cloud.

How WebRTC can Enhance Customer Experience

MIDLOTHIAN, VA – Did you know that WebRTC (RealTime Communications) is set to change the way companies communicate? WebRTC is a way to make phone calls, video calls, send instant messages, and share files with nothing but a web browser. WebRTC is already compatible with an estimate of over 2 billion browsers and is being supported by the major players, including Apple, Google, Microsoft, Mozilla, and Opera. This means companies who want to connect with their customers won’t need their customers to call in through a phone number nor will they be forced to download an app beforehand in order to interact. Communication is poised to become more seamless than ever before, which is a huge opportunity for enhancing customer experience.

Imagine putting a link on your homepage and then with a single click, your customer is instantly in a video chat with one of your customer service representatives. The possibilities for tailoring a customized interaction are limitless at this level because you can already ascertain a certain base level of knowledge about what the customer is experiencing based on which link they clicked. This could very well end the need for phone extensions, dial-by-name directories, and being put on-hold, ever again. This is big news for businesses who differentiate themselves based on customer service. With WebRTC they can even connect directly with the exact location, exact department and team member that is best suited to fix their issue.

Dominion Voice and Data Protects SMBs From Windows 7 End of Life

MIDLOTHIAN, VA – March 2019 – Dominion Voice and Data a leading managed technology services provider (MTSP), is helping small to mid-sized businesses (SMBs) secure their organizations from cyber-attacks, by addressing the Windows 7 “End of Life” policy that will begin in January of 2020. Microsoft has announced that they will cease supporting the software, providing updates, enhancing security features and the software will essentially become obsolete. SMBs need to be aware of this transition because cybercriminals are constantly inventing new methods and techniques to exploit weak infrastructure. If a business doesn’t adapt and bring in technology that can keep pace with the ever-evolving security threats that the modern business faces, they will eventually become a “sitting duck” for cyber attacks.

Many businesses handle problems like this in the same manner that they handle all other problems. Ignore it until they suffer a minor consequence, and after they feel some of the pain, then they react and begin solving the problem. However, this is a very dangerous strategy to utilize given the potential consequences. For example, we can look at the costs that some major players have paid for insecure infrastructure. According to Time Magazine, “The Equifax breach cost the company over $4 billion in total.” While small businesses can’t withstand losses like that, there’s also a stronger push from authorities for tighter cybersecurity measures, bigger fines and harsher penalties for lax policies.“
