BTA Now Offering 24x7 Support

Posted by Sarah Andrews on 15 September 2016

Long gone are the days of coming into work at 9am and leaving at 5:30pm.  In fact, most of us have never even experienced such a predictable schedule. To stay competitive in today’s marketplace, businesses need to be switched on all the time.  They need employees to work whatever number of hours are required to get the job done, and be available far beyond the once-normal 8-hour day.  In return, more and more companies are offering flexible working in which employees can work from home, or during non-business hours as their regular schedule.

You Can No Longer Purchase Earlier Versions of Microsoft Office

Posted by Scott Bartlett on 11 February 2016

It is true. In case you haven’t heard, Microsoft have stopped selling all pre-2016 versions of Microsoft Office. This is because Microsoft wants you to adopt the new way of thinking about Microsoft software: constantly updated, available in the cloud, and getting new features all the time. Office 2016 is a step-change in that it is cloud-centric; it is no longer restricted to your desktop PC or laptop. For example, you can create an Office document from your PC and then edit on your phone or tablet, and not have to worry about moving the file manually onto those devices. Never before has this been so seamless.
