Place your orders: Like many of you I am wondering where the year has gone ... But there is still plenty of time to buy up big before Christmas! You will need to order stock by the 14 December to guarantee delivery and installation before Christmas.

Office 2016 Upgrade Warning: A warning not to upgrade to Office 2016 if you are running Microsoft Exchange 2007 or older, because Outlook 2016 does not support connections to older Exchange versions. Please contact us if you are unsure or have any more questions.

Please contact us if you have any questions about cyber security and your business.

Are you ready for the storm season?

Protect your data this storm season: Lightening and electrical surges don’t mix well with computers, phones or network systems. Your insurance will usually cover the physical damage, but no amount of insurance can replace the data you may lose if your hard drive is damaged.
Investing in an uninterruptable power supply (UPS) is a smart move. A UPS provides surge protection and battery backup in the event of an electricity outage.
Digit IT is currently offering a APC Back-UPS 950VA for $170 (including GST) until the end of December. Please contact us if you would like to purchase one.
Don’t want to install a UPS at the moment? Digit IT advises you to unplug your computers and other electronic equipment when a storm is approaching.


Keep your kids safe with THREAD app

Free App: This free app caught my eye this week. 'THREAD' is a personal safety app for children (aged from 8 years) that was developed by the Carly Ryan Foundation and the South Australian government. It has been endorsed by the Australian Federal Police.
The app has two main features. It enables your child to ‘check-in’ to pre-set deadlines and communicate with you and trusted contacts in an informal medium.
The app also has a personal safety alarm, which sends the users location to their trusted contacts and 000 when they feel threatened.
The app was inspired by an Australian mother whose daughter was murdered after she meet someone on the internet.
