If you run a business that uses heavy machinery whether those are vats of liquids, manufacturing equipment or forklifts, then you are reliable to an extent on those investments operating efficiently and as expected. If a piece of machinery should stop working, then not only will that investment have been wasted (to some extent at least), but you will also then be left to try to achieve the same kind of output without the mechanical aid that you rely on. Worst of all, should your equipment falter it could potentially cause damage to your property, to the environment or put your staff/customers at risk. Continue reading

If you run a business that operates ‘on site’ such as a construction business or a mining company, then you might not spend much time worrying about computers or technology.
