Paper is, in many ways, an annoyance. There’s always some of it stashed away in your desk — old contracts, business cards and the like that you’re just a bit too afraid to throw away.

You might have already seen our first blog on the upcoming General Data Protection Regulation (though if you haven’t now’s the perfect time to take a look). From the first part, it should now be crystal clear that organisations are legally going to have to do a whole lot more than perhaps they’re used to doing.
You’ve heard of the GDPR. I’m not even going to open with a ‘Chances are you’ve heard of the GDPR’ — because, you have most definitely, unequivocally, irrefutably heard of the GDPR. But it’s perfectly fine to not know what it means, at least at this stage anyway
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation by which the European Parliament, the Council of European Union and the European Commission intend to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union.
2017; the year that will almost certainly go down as the year of the Internet of Things. Products such as the Google Home, Amazon Alexa and Nest home security devices offered an unparalleled ease of use and took the connected and automated home to the next level
Every news outlet talks about them, organisations keep targeting them, and they’re some of the most demanding people alive without even knowing it. Love them or hate them, millennials are changing the world.
There’s no two ways about it; being able to effectively manage returns, or reverse logistics, is a process worth its weight in gold come this time of the year. Having witnessed another busy Black Friday, and with Christmas/Boxing Day sales set to hardly be a walk in the park, the ability to successfully deal with the volume of products returned by consumers is increasingly becoming a concern worthy of attention.
Once upon a time, not so long ago, there was a company that really wanted to provide the best possible service for its resellers and its customers, so it created an array of tools to help them find exactly what they need and want.

It definitely feels like we’ve been waiting a long time for the release of Microsoft 365 Business, but finally it’s here! Why are we excited about it?
Westcoast has announced the launch of a bold new identity, together with a website refresh including enriched content and reseller enablement resources, to emphasise its renewed focus on channel services.

As defences against cyber-attack have evolved and become more effective, so have the methods employed by those that perpetrate those attacks.They probe and test every facet of a system, in a top down search for weak points to exploit...
For a long time, people said rather sneeringly, ‘if you can’t do, teach’, which is perhaps one of the most ridiculous put-downs of all time. Teaching is, in our view, not only one of the most admirable and necessary of professions...
