Software Changes the Face of Inventory Management

Stay Competitive with the Latest Technologies

by Jennifer Ramstrom | 10.06.16

Inventory is the lifeblood of a retail business. Managing it well is critical. Poor inventory management is one of the top 10 reasons small businesses fail, according to the SBA.

What goes wrong? Usually, a cascade of errors leads to bad decisions. In an environment of fierce competition and low margins, small businesses simply can’t afford such miscalculations.

If you overestimate demand, inventory builds up, costing money to store and eventually hitting the sell-by date or going out of style before it’s sold. Conversely, underestimating demand frustrates customers, who may give up and go elsewhere.

The Microsoft Product and Services Agreement (MPSA) At-a-Glance allows customers to purchase not only licenses, but also License and Software Assurance (SA), and online services like O365 under one agreement—enabling a more elastic setup. One of the main draws to having all these license and subscription options in one place is having one agreement to manage and one site to view and review licenses. This site is called the Business Center, and in it customers have the ability to quickly provision subscription-based products like O365—and instantly access them—all while having them co-term to the anniversary date. But wait, there’s more.

SQL 2005 End of Life

Don’t Go IT Alone

by Jared Bisbano | 08.03.16

With the end of SQL Server support back in April, it’s time to face the facts: no more feature updates, no more application fixes, and no more security patches or anything else related to SQL Server 2005.

by Ashley Lofaro | 07.19.16

The one-year anniversary of the Windows 10 release is right around the corner, and Microsoft just announced the operating system is now on 300 million active devices. Thanks to improvement-focused processes like the Insider Program and constantly testing new builds, Windows 10 has the highest customer satisfaction of any version of Windows. What’s even more unique about this release is that a lot of these upgrades to Windows 10 have been for free thanks to Microsoft’s Free Upgrade Offer—but that will soon be coming to an end on July 29, 2016.
