Happy Holidays From All Of Us At Weston

Posted by on in Off Topic/Fun

All us at Weston Technology Solutions want to wish you a wonderful and safe holiday season. Our offices will be closed on Friday, December 22 and Monday, December 25, in observance of Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. We'll also be closed Monday, January 1, in observance of the New Year holiday so we can enjoy this time with our families. Emergency coverage is available for our CompleteCare clients for network-down emergencies by calling your local Weston office and following the prompts for emergency support.

We want to thank all of you for this last year and helping us to contribute time and money to the charities we support, and we look forward to working with you this upcoming year. Our core purpose is to better the lives of others, and you help us get there.

If you don't have a nice fire to warm up to in this cold weather, cozy up and run these online "Yule Logs" at full screen on your computer or smart TV to get the next best thing:

Posted by on in How To

The latest version of Office 365 includes a variety of updates. One in particular is useful to businesses who work in international markets: The Translator features in Word have received an update. This latest update now supports 60 languages, including 11 that use neural machine translation (meaning you get a better-quality translation). It’s pretty simple to get started with translating.

Posted by on in Security

So what can you do to protect yourself from phishing scams? You can follow these tips, which we published a couple years ago, but they still hold true.

You Like Doughnuts, Right?

Posted by on in Off Topic/Fun

doughnutsEarlier this year we implemented a new single-click feedback system on our ticket closing emails. We also implemented it recently on our quote approval emails as well. It’s been quite useful for us as we’ve gotten much more feedback from our clients in a more timely manner. We’re now using the feedback rankings our staff receives (both technical and sales) as part of any sort of bonus calculations they may eligible for.

Our goal is to make sure we serve you the best we can, so put a high value on the feedback we receive – good, bad or otherwise. At some point in the future, we even plan on showing comments, reviews, and ratings we receive (in real time) on our web site so folks can see how we’re doing (which is currently sitting at a 98% satisfaction rate, based on the last 300 reviews).

While we have had a great deal of response, we always want more data and we’re going to bribe you with something we know everybody likes: doughnuts (or donuts, if you prefer), so we now have a Food For Feedback program. If your company submits feedback on a higher percentage of your tickets and approved quotes in a month than anybody else, we’ll buy your office doughnuts (minimum of five closed tickets or quotes approved per month to be eligible). We run the reports monthly and will contact the winning company to schedule a doughnut delivery. This month’s winner was the folks at La Pine Community Health Center.

So keep an eye out on those closing ticket and quote approved emails for these faces...
