Learn the top 3 Reasons Business Owners MUST Invest in Information Technology
Concerned with Growth? Increasing Revenue? Trust in the Market Place?Overall, technology is important for a business--it helps you do more with less, save time, be more productive and gain intelligence on key business processes metrics, and DRIVE REVENUE! Technology can help you manage this much better than you could manage it without a proper technology system in place. If you need to get every penny from other business processes, a good technology system can help you monitor those costs and know where to invest and where to cut back!
Join us this Thursday for another in our series of Entrepreneurial Educational Luncheons. Come hungry for lunch, connections, and information. This week our special guest speaker is Andrew Moore. Andrew's topic is:
Your Computer Security: Protecting Your Company, Your Client Data, and Your Data Base!

Weak computer security and lack of internal controls increases your clients' vulnerability as well as your ability to do business without interruption.
