3 Advantages of an Access Control System in a Quebec Business

The days of a small business owner is filled with a variety of decisions and choices. In order to keep your business on the right path, you will need to find a way to make the right decisions regardless of the consequences. For most business owners’ safety and security is at the top of their list of priorities. There are a number of things you can do to increase the security of your business, but none are quite as effective as having an access control system installed. Here are a few of the advantages of having an access control system for your business.

Hard to Duplicated Key Cards

One of the biggest issues you can face with a traditional lock and key is the simplicity of it. There are a number of tools out there that will allow a robber to pick the lock and gain access to your business. Instead of having a traditional lock, you need to get an access control. It is very hard to duplicate hid cards and most robbers will not even attempt. Instead of using outdated security measure, you need to upgrade to an access control system.

Grant Access in a Hurry

Another benefit that comes with using this type of system is that you are able to grant access to anyone you would like to various parts of your building. This means you will not have to worry about who is seeing what in your business and you will have a record of who accesses the rooms in your business. This will help to reduce confusion and employee theft. The money you pay for this system will be more than worth it when you consider the benefits it can bring to you and your business.

Disk Management was never that Easy in Windows 7

Yes, it’s true that Windows 7 is still one of the most widely used operating system in the world. Normally when we buy a new laptop with a registered Windows, we simply switch it on and set it up with a single famous partition known as “Drive C”. The irony is, it has happened with me, on both the machines I have, there is only a single drive to save all my official and personal data while the Windows is also running on the same drive. There is a time when you would wish to upgrade your Windows or simply re-install your operating system just to get rid of any unwanted software and hidden viruses in your computer and you realize that doing that may lead to the deletion of your data on the same drive.

Windows 7 Disk Management tool may help you out at this point but, it has the ability to shrink and extend Windows 7 32 bit and 64 bit system partition. You just need to right click in Disk Management and choose “Shrink Volume” or “Extend Volume”. But there is a huge disadvantage to extend partition with Disk Management: “Extend Volume” is available unless there is continuous space behind this partition. Otherwise, you cannot extend partition. Because Windows 7 Disk Management cannot move partition to let continuous space be behind the partition which you want to extend.

Creating a user friendly website for your business

Usability is something that cannot be overlooked when it comes to designing a website. The experience for a customer using your website should be pleasant and easy with a seamless journey from browsing through to purchase. This will greatly improve your chances of success, and boost sales and revenue. Here are four simple steps to creating a user friendly website.

Mobile compatibility

With the rise in popularity of smartphones and tablets, creating a mobile optimised website is vital for any business. Your website may look well on a large desktop screen – however this does not necessarily mean that it will translate well onto the much smaller screen of a mobile phone. There are translation apps available, but it is well worth enlisting the help of a professional web designer to ensure that your site works equally well across all platforms. After all mobile friendly sites will boost your sales figures so it is an investment that could pay handsomely in the long run.
Simple to follow navigation

When designing your site map the objective should be to keep it as simple as possible. Name each page appropriately and make sure that visitors are able to see their options in order to navigate through your site. It is important that the site doesn’t seem too complicated or cluttered otherwise visitors will become frustrated and leave the site, unlikely to ever return.


It is one thing having a website that looks nice and is easy to navigate, but it is all for nothing if the site itself experiences technical difficulties and runs slowly or in some instances crashes completely. Such problems make things difficult for the customer and reflect badly on the company overall. Website performance monitoring is essential to ensure the ongoing good health of your website.
