    When used strategically, technology can help small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) develop a more productive, efficient, and innovative workforce. That’s why businesses that prioritize technology are three times more likely to exceed corporate goals.

    However, even the most cutting-edge technology can experience the occasional hiccup and slow you down if you don’t keep up with regular updates and support. Performing an annual technology refresh can help you avoid this altogether.

    A technology refresh is a process of replacing technology components regularly by evaluating their ability to integrate with other infrastructure components and obsolescence, rather than waiting until the outdated element becomes the most significant impediment to achieving your company’s vision.

    Is it time to refresh your company’s technology? Keep an eye out for the following six signs:

    1. Systems are running slowly - Slow systems consume a significant amount of a company’s valuable time. The slowness could be due to several factors including a failed integration, virus, or lack of updates. It’s critical to find and fix the problem as soon as possible to get back to optimal performance levels.

    2. Experiencing suspicious pop-ups - Suspicious pop-ups typically warn users that their system is vulnerable to a security threat or has a technical problem. One of the best ways to keep such malicious players at bay is by immediately refreshing/updating legacy systems.

    3. Random shutdowns - It’s normal for systems to shut down to install critical updates. However, if the shutdowns are frequent and unpredictable, then there’s a problem that needs to be addressed. While random shutdowns can be due to a range of factors, such as an unstable power supply, virus/malware or corrupted files, it could also be a warning sign that the system is due for an update/refresh.

    4. Connection issues - Getting cut off from the internet in the middle of a crucial task or meeting occasionally can be inconvenient, but what if it happens regularly? It could be a sign that your system has a flaw that needs to be fixed.

    5. Lack of integration between your systems, software and technology - Integration is critical for today’s firms because the current technology landscape is evolving rapidly, and businesses may have to depend on multiple vendors for different solutions. So, if any technology component in your company does not integrate with the rest of the infrastructure, it should be replaced immediately.

    6. Your system acts possessed - You’ve probably seen situations where tabs open and close on their own, the mouse moves in the opposite direction, things open on your desktop at random and files get downloaded without your knowledge. In such cases, you should consider a system refresh before consulting an exorcist.
