It’s hard to believe we are in the year 2020 now! With this new decade there will almost certainly be the same fast progression in technologies experienced over the years of the previous decade. You may think that your business IT equipment is modern enough but that simply isn’t always the case. Unless you know what you are looking for, it can be difficult to decide when to upgrade your company’s computers. In this blog we offer some tips to help you with that very decision.

Staff Productivity

When the productivity of your staff is affected, you should definitely take action to better equip them with more up to date devices. The older a device is, the more likely it is that the speed is less. This can be down to a number of things including a low amount of RAM. This will be better for the overall good of your business, ensuring work is carried out in a timely manner.

Compatibility with Software and Applications

If a computer is out of date, it will often lack the technology to be compatible with the latest software and applications. If this is the case for your business computers, you could be significantly limited in the IT side of operations. The opportunities are endless with some of the systems which come with more modern devices.


There are different job roles which require staff to use their computers in a very different way to most other people. Users such as Engineers and Graphic Designers need more powerful devices in order to cope with the high demand of their job activities. There are newer computers out there which are specifically designed with bespoke elements for these types of roles.
