Zebra Printer Trade Up Programme

Do your printers have all the functionality, reliability, ease-of-use and network security you need? Could they actually be putting your business data, productivity and growth at risk? The way we use printers is changing, we connect more devices than ever before, and how data is parsed to them is evolving too… older printers simply can’t keep up! Data security and compliance are major issues right now… your older network printers offer an easy ‘way-in’ for hackers and cyber-terrorists; and surprisingly, smaller businesses are targeted most frequently. Many older printers are no longer supported by the manufacturer… so what if yours fail tomorrow? Better to plan and upgrade than end-up unable to print and waiting for a delivery. Printer ‘populations’ often grow randomly over time… but you can replace multiple old printers with fewer, higher-performance ones: far easier and more cost-effective to manage. These are just a few of the reasons to Trade-Up today. Please  contact us  to find out how OpalTec and the Zebra Printer Trade Up Programme   can make the most of your print budget!

Mobile operating systems are changing - Are you ready?

Organisations with mobile devices currently running applications that require a legacy Microsoft mobile operating system (Windows CE 6 or Windows Mobile/Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5) will soon face the end of support for their platform. Mainstream support, which includes regular updates, has ended for both legacy systems, and Microsoft extended support (security fixes etc.) will end for Windows CE 6 in the first half of 2018, and for Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5 at the beginning of 2020. After these dates, organisations will be unable to obtain fixes should a vulnerability or error be found in Microsoft code. OpalTec has prepared a short document detailing how  mobile operating systems are changing .   OpalTec can provide a pain free transition to Android Transitioning from legacy Windows platforms to Android involves writing new apps, adapting workflows and changing the mobile devices that workers use, which can prove to be a significant undertaking for any IT department. To find out how OpalTec can help your organisation transition from a Windows based operating system to Android, please complete the form below, and one of our experts will be in contact with you…
