Tech Tips

Technology plays a vital role in our personal and professional lives. To make the most of these tools and enhance productivity, it’s essential to adopt effective strategies and leverage the right technology tips. In this blog, Suffolk based IT Support experts Corbel explore 10 essential technology tips that can help you boost productivity and stay ahead in the digital world.

1. Organise Your Digital Workspace: Start by decluttering your digital workspace. Organise files and folders in a logical manner, use productivity apps for task management, and keep your desktop clean. A well-organised digital environment sets the foundation for enhanced productivity.

2. Master Keyboard Shortcuts: Learn and utilise keyboard shortcuts for commonly used tasks. Whether it’s copying and pasting, switching between applications, or formatting text, keyboard shortcuts save time and make your workflow more efficient.

3. Embrace Cloud Storage: Take advantage of cloud storage solutions like Dropbox, Google Drive, or Microsoft OneDrive. Storing files in the cloud not only provides easy access from anywhere but also ensures data backup and collaboration capabilities.

4. Automate Repetitive Tasks: Identify tasks that you frequently perform and explore automation options. Use automation tools and scripts to streamline repetitive tasks, such as email filtering, report generation, or data entry. This frees up your time for more important activities therefore reducing your operating costs. As part of their IT Consultancy Services, Ipswich based Corbel offers an Automation service which helps increase efficiency of tasks completed, with minimal human intervention and the benefits can be huge.

5. Practice Digital Detox: Constant digital distractions can hinder productivity. Set boundaries and practice digital detox by scheduling regular breaks from technology. Use apps that limit your access to social media or block distracting websites during focused work sessions.

6. Enhance Collaboration with Communication Tools: Utilise communication and collaboration tools like Microsoft Teams or Zoom to improve teamwork and remote collaboration. These tools enable seamless communication, file sharing, and virtual meetings, enhancing productivity across teams. For that initial get go, check out Corbel’s Microsoft Teams Quick Start Guide here.

7. Implement Time Management Techniques: Adopt time management techniques such as the Pomodoro Technique or time blocking. Break your work into focused intervals, take regular breaks, and allocate specific time slots for different tasks. This helps maintain focus and improves productivity.

8. Secure Your Digital Environment: Prioritise Cyber Security to protect sensitive data and avoid potential disruptions. Use strong, unique passwords, enable two-factor authentication, keep software and devices updated, and be cautious of phishing attempts. A secure digital environment ensures uninterrupted productivity. Find out more about Corbel’s Cyber Security Services here.

9. Stay Updated with Technology Trends: Keep yourself informed about the latest technology trends and advancements in your field. Regularly explore tech blogs, attend webinars, or join industry forums to stay up to date. Being aware of emerging technologies can give you a competitive edge and enhance your productivity.

Hannah migrated us over to Microsoft 365 back in 2020. The whole migration was planned out really well and managed through to a really high standard. Hannah was a pleasure to work with, friendly, approachable and very patient. Nothing was too much trouble. I would thoroughly recommend Hannah to any local business looking for IT services.

We have recently begun working with Corbel and have been really impressed so far. The team are very friendly and have resolved some long-standing IT issues for us that others have been unable to resolve; never hesitating to go above and beyond to exceed expectations. If the team are on a call about one specific issue and notice another unrelated issue, they will look to fix this straight away for us which is greatly appreciated. I would highly recommend Corbel if you were thinking of changing IT Support providers.
