Windows 7 Upgrades/Replacements
We’ve sent newsletters, video blogs, email blasts; we’ve even included it in blue ink on our invoices – in January 2020, the Windows 7 Operating System is end-of-life and will not be supported by Microsoft. This means no more security updates or patches, making each computer vulnerable to hackers. If these computers have important data or sit on your network, you are at risk!
We’re at the mid-year point. We’ve seen Intel Processor shortages (the ‘brains’ of the computer) earlier this year; now back orders for PC’s and laptops. The whole WORLD has to make this change, so as the day gets closer, it will get harder and harder (and maybe more expensive) to get computer replacements before the deadline.
Don’t wait until the end of the year to address this, or you may run out of options and have to shell out a lot more money. We’ve had a few clients reach out to do this planning. In the coming weeks, we’re going to work through our client list asking for time to review what you have, what you need, and to get things started so you’re not between a rock and a hard place as the deadline approaches.
One final thought – we, and every other IT company, expect to be VERY busy in November and December (and probably January) with companies that didn’t plan ahead. Maybe we’ll be able to help them beat the deadline, and maybe not. Don’t get caught in the middle. Give us a call to book a time to go through the list of equipment and put together a plan! – CMW
