“Efficienize” your Business

By | Blog

Authored By: Jonathan Spence I’ll start by admitting it, efficienize is NOT a word. Yes I know, but without those who promote new words how will they ever be accepted into a language?! In any case I thought I would do a quick search to see what the linguists had to say on the subject matter and they were very much adamant that indeed it is not yet a word even though its use is arguably spreading.

By | Blog

Authored By: Jonathan Spence Data protection, both physical and digital are key parts to protecting a business, organization or even an individual from loss of critical information.
