Thursday, April 18th, 2019

Avaya IP Office

Is your business using cloud computing? In only one year, it’s anticipated that 78% of small businesses will be completely adapted to the cloud. If you want to meet the needs and expectations of your current and future customers, cloud computing is the standard.

What’s Driving the Shift to the Cloud?

Avaya IP Office combines a number of communication methods into a single simple application and increases your staff’s efficiency and productivity as a result.

What’s Stopping Businesses from Adapting?

Many businesses worry about changing methods and technology. Other companies worry that their budget will be wholly inadequate for making the shift from on-site solutions to cloud-based ones. Even more businesses are confused by the number of products available on the market and, instead of partnering with a cloud expert like Teltek, choose to do nothing at all. Unfortunately, that means they are missing out on the countless benefits of solutions like Avaya IP Office.

Spring Cleaning Is the Perfect Time for E-Recycling

Thursday, March 7th, 2019

E-Recycling

Spring is the perfect time to go through the things that have been hanging around at your business for too long, like those monitors lurking in the storage room and the stack of blank CDs that have taken up permanent residence under your desk. E-recycling is a safe, secure and environmentally responsible way to take care of old tech at your business, and Teltek can help.

Why Is E-Recycling Important?

It takes a few seconds to put your old monitor out by the dumpster, but is that really what you should be doing? Nope! Electronics are filled with toxic chemicals inside of them, including arsenic, lead and cadmium. By placing plastic, which doesn’t degrade, and other dangerous chemicals into a landfill, you could be inadvertently polluting the surrounding ecosystem. In fact, throwing away computers and electronics with regular trash is illegal in many states. Target paid the state of California a whopping $22.5 million fine in 2011 due to not e-recycling and instead disposing of hazardous waste in normal trash.

Beyond environmental concerns, there are also plenty of privacy and security concerns that go hand in hand with improperly disposing of electronics. If you fail to clear all of the data off of every device you place in the trash, anyone could access that sensitive information. Just like you would not put a paper with employee information written on it in the trash without shredding it, you should never place electronics in the trash.

What Can E-Recycling Include?

Teltek can travel to your location(s) and collect all of your unwanted, working or damaged:

  • Televisions
  • Desktop computers
  • Monitors
  • Laptops
  • Printers
  • Copiers
  • Audio/visual equipment pieces
  • Electronic devices
  • Telephone systems
  • Mobile phones

What Does E-Recycling Look Like With Teltek?

  1. We start by collecting the devices that you no longer want from your business. You don’t need to lift a finger (other than to give us a call)!
  2. Next, we complete a thorough and secure process to permanently remove all remaining files and data from each device. We value your privacy.
  3. Equipment that can be reused will be repaired and updated before being donated to a local non-profit or charity for a second life.
  4. Items that are beyond repair will be recycled carefully in accordance with all state and federal laws.

What Every School and Library Should Know About E-RATE

Wednesday, November 7th, 2018

shutterstock_779645500

E-RATE is a powerful program designed to make telecommunications equipment and technology more affordable for schools and libraries across the country. This federally-funded program, also known as The Schools and Libraries Program (TSLP), has been in existence since 1997 and offers discounted telecommunications, Internet and internal connections to eligible locations.

What Benefits Does E-RATE Offer?

This program currently funds five types of service:

  1. Data transmission services and internet access
  2. Voice services
  3. Internal connections
  4. Managed internal broadband services
  5. Basic maintenance of internal connections

Some of the eligible services include:

  • Wireless access points
  • Cabling
  • Caching
  • Firewall services
  • Switches
  • Routers
  • UPS
  • Racks
  • Wireless controllers
  • Wi-Fi software
  • Managed Wi-Fi services
  • Leased lit and dark fiber
  • IRUs
  • Internet access

Depending on the poverty level and urban/rural status of the school or library, the available discount could range from 20-90%. Areas with the 20% discount have no students eligible for free and reduced price lunch, and most areas with the 90% discount have over 75% of the student population eligible for free and reduced price lunch. If you aren’t sure where your school will fall, you can learn more on the discount matrix included in the application. All of these benefits are extended with the goal of increasing connectivity to help children learn and thrive with access to the same resources as those in wealthier neighborhoods.

How Does the E-RATE Program Work?

Interested schools and libraries can apply online through a simple portal. The applicant will complete a form to start the competitive bidding process and receive bids from a number of service providers. Providing that the application meets all requirements and the bidding period has ended, the applicant will then be able to select a service provider. The applicant will submit another completed application to the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) who will issue a funding commitment for the appropriate amount. Once the service has been received, reimbursement and discounts will be offered.

4 Signs You Should Rethink Your Telecom Strategy

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2018

telecom

As a business owner, your telecommunications strategy is never written in stone. Your business will naturally expand and contract in accordance with industry changes, which means that your telecommunications strategy will also need to be agile. If it’s been a while since you’ve reassessed your telecom needs and spending, there are several signs to look for to determine whether you’re in need of a change.

You Can’t Communicate Easily

The right telecommunications solution will allow for a variety of communication types, including voice calls, video calls, screen sharing, detailed reporting, instant messaging and collaboration between employees in different parts of the country. Teltek’s Nebulosity Voice Cloud PBX offers all of those communication methods and more to keep your employees connected around the clock.

You Can’t Use the Cloud

Cloud services are no longer something that only tech-savvy companies use. Instead, all businesses should be on board. Cloud computing puts information online so that you and your employees can access that information from any internet-connected device at any place or time. If you cannot take advantage of the versatility that the cloud offers you currently, it’s time to rethink your current telecom strategy.

You’re Stuck Using the Same Equipment

Bring-your-own-device (BYOD) technology is the new standard in telecommunications. Our Nebulosity Voice Cloud PBX solution is designed for BYOD offices so that your employees can bring their own laptops, tablets, cell phones, computers and VoIP phones to keep in touch. BYOD cuts costs on your end, as you don’t need to worry about purchasing a great deal of new equipment.

You Can’t Get Training On-Demand

Are the only trainings for your current system on CDs stashed somewhere in your office or only available in live seminars? Teltek offers our partners a suite of online, on-demand training videos so that you and your employees can learn the Nebulosity system from anywhere in the world. Instead of forcing you to meet us where we are, we go above and beyond to meet you where you are.

Rethink Your Telecom Strategy with Teltek

Don’t Forget to Recycle Electronics During Spring Cleaning

Wednesday, April 11th, 2018

shutterstock_78555001

Spring cleaning your office means finally throwing away the stack of toner boxes near the copy machine, shredding the records that you don’t need to keep and getting rid of the ancient monitors lining your IT closet shelves. But, wait a second, what should you do with those monitors? Your office should always recycle electronics instead of tossing them in the trash.

Why Should You Recycle Electronics?

When it comes to recycling plastic bottles and paper boxes, most offices will take the time to sort them and place them in the recycling bin. When it comes to less convenient items, like electronics, it’s tempting to place them in the dumpster with everything else. However, it’s actually more important to take the extra time to properly recycle electronics than every plastic bottle in the bin. Electronics are filled with toxic and environmentally-hazardous chemicals like lead and arsenic. By placing electronics into a landfill, these chemicals will leak into the surrounding area and ecosystem.

How Can Your Office Recycle Electronics?

During spring cleaning, make sure that you keep all technology and electronic items that you need to dispose of grouped together. Once you know what you need to get rid of, contact an experienced technology recycling service provider like Teltek. We can travel to your office location and collect all of your old electronics and take care of recycling them.

What Electronics Can You Recycle?

  • Desktop PCs
  • Laptops
  • Monitors
  • Tablets
  • Copy machines
  • Printers
  • TVs
  • A/V equipment
  • Telephone systems
  • Electronic devices
  • Anything containing a battery 

How Can Teltek Help with Your Spring Cleaning?

We are the preferred partner of numerous businesses who recycle electronics because we go above and beyond to make the hard process of recycling technology simple. We will collect our devices and complete a thorough and comprehensive process to permanently delete data, files and sensitive information from your devices.

If your old electronic equipment can be repurposed or reused, the Teltek team will make any necessary repairs and then donate the equipment to a local non-profit, charity or school. If your items are beyond repair, we will coordinate the recycling of each item in accordance with EPA regulations and local laws.

Are you ready to clean out your closet full of ancient technology? If you have old and outdated electronics you aren’t using anymore, contact Teltek today for a free consultation at 1-866-9-TELTEK or 410-552-6580.

What to Look for in a Managed Print Services Provider

Tuesday, February 13th, 2018

Managed Print

Automating the administrative tasks in your office, like dealing with service providers and ordering ink and toner, can remove pressure from office staff and let every employee focus on work instead of which cartridge to order. Managed print services encompass much more than the copiers you use, and the right provider can transform the way you do business. What should you look for?

Expertise

A managed print services provider should have a wealth of experience adapting to different print infrastructures, document workflows, security protocols and organizational structures. The more that a provider understands the needs of businesses in your industry, the better the quality of service will be. The expertise of a service provider will inform how your current needs are met and how your future needs are accommodated.

Resources

91% of businesses that do not currently use managed print services believe that their offices are not “very effective” at utilizing paper and digital workflows. The right provider will integrate your print and digital workflows and provide you with resources to assist in the process. Some businesses assume that providers only help with stocking paper and ink products, but the range of services offered is much broader than that.

Ongoing Support

Any quality managed print services provider will continuously monitor your print infrastructure and needs to optimize both functionality and lifespan. As your needs evolve, your provider should offer ongoing support and quality customer service to determine what is best for you. If your managed print services provider can’t help you take your business to the next level, it’s time to make a switch!

Choose the Right Managed Print Services Provider

Teltek offers managed print services to maximize your productivity and minimize waste. Our services start with a comprehensive print analysis and continue with ongoing monitoring and support so that your print equipment always meets your needs. With Teltek, you only pay for what you print, and you’ll never need to carry excess toner and paper inventory. If you are curious about how managed print services could improve the way you do business, contact Teltek today for a free consultation at 1-866-9-TELTEK or 410-552-6580.
