What Our Clients Say

  • I don’t know if I can say enough about Marin Technologies.
    President, Concordia Finance, Inc. / Rancho Cucamonga

    I don’t know if I can say enough about Marin Technologies. I have known Steve Marin for 8 years. He was working for another company at the time but still made us feel like his only client. He even recommended a person to be our in house I.T. manager. The relationship continued as an additional source for our I.T. issues. When our I.T. manager left the company, Marin Technologies had been established. It was an easy decision to make the transition.

  • Marin Technologies treats me like I am their only and most special client.

5 Cloud Apps Small Businesses Should Love

QuickBooks Online
QuickBooks has been a major accounting and payroll software for some time, but Intuit, the company behind QuickBooks, has developed the platform in the cloud. QuickBooks Online allows users to create professional invoices, track sales and expenses, manage accounts, automatically download bank transactions, and schedule and send invoices to clients. QuickBooks Online also provides users the ability to work from thousands of different devices, while also providing integration with over 300 other cloud-based applications. Managing your organization’s finances has never been so simple, and affordable.

Evernote
Evernote has moved to the cloud. Like QuickBooks, the Evernote note-taking app has been around for some time, but now that it’s a cloud-based application, users are seeing a stronger, faster, more robust solution than they had before 2017’s migration. Since the Evernote interface allows users to save and archive information found online, it is very much personal information. Evernote has added encryption to their platform, securing people’s information, and providing a trustworthy and feature-rich productivity application completely hosted in the cloud.

DocuSign
Think about how many documents you’ve signed just this year? Imagine if you could forgo the meetings, the appointments, and the expense of travel by just signing official documents through an app? Whether you are making an offer, closing an agreement, or providing access, DocuSign is the right solution for you. Allowing people to remotely sign official documents makes it possible for people who need to get more done faster to do so.

Slack
Slack is a communications platform that provides users integrated options to enhance project management and productivity in the cloud. Slack includes several features designed to help projects move faster, including person-to-person private message boards and instant messaging. You can get everyone on a project on the same page. This enables you to produce more work rooted in success than would be possible without the application.

Asana
Asana is a project management software that allows teams to collaborate by setting projects parameters and milestones and then collaborating to meet those milestones. By giving teams a way to organize, meet their deadlines, share files, and be more pragmatic with their time, more can get done, producing more revenue growth possibilities.

This is a short list of extremely useful applications that work for small businesses, but only you know what business-line applications will work best for your business. If you are looking for a solution to a specific problem, the IT professionals at Marin Technologies have the knowledge and expertise necessary to help you choose the right solution for your needs.

Tip of the Week: Using Less Data on Android

Checking Your Data Usage
If you want to use less data, the first step is to see how much you’re currently using. To do this, you want to see where most of your data is being used. You can do so by accessing System Settings and going to your Network and Internet options. Under this, select Mobile data usage. You’ll then be shown a list of all your applications, as well as how much data they are using. This setting can also show you whether the data was used in the background or during the user’s activity.

Placing Caps on Your Apps
Once you’ve figured out your problem apps, you can put measures in place to limit how much data they consume:

  • Limit your updates: Some apps will constantly refresh themselves, which can burn through your mobile data faster than you’d like. Some examples of these are social media applications that update news feeds. You can cut back on how often these applications update their information in two ways. The first includes going to each app’s settings and looking for the option to reduce the amount of data than an app uses in the background. If this doesn’t work, go back to your system settings and access that particular app’s settings to deactivate background data. This isn’t always the best option for apps like messaging that need to refresh in the background in order to work.
  • Deactivate certain features: Some apps have features included that go through more data than you’d like. Examples are auto-play and high-quality streaming. You can change these settings individually by going into the app’s specific settings. Doing this can greatly decrease the amount of data your device uses.
  • Prepare in advance: Downloading content through your mobile data plan can be expensive. Most of the time, you can plan ahead by downloading whatever you need via a Wi-Fi connection instead. You can do this with music apps like Spotify, as well as Google Maps for location-based tasks.

What are some of the ways you cut down on your mobile data usage? Let us know in the comments.

You Can’t Afford Not to Have a Proper Backup Solution

We’ll walk you through five steps to put together the ideal data backup solution for your business.

Determining Your Backup Needs
First, you need to figure out what you hope to gain from your data backup system. After all, you can’t implement a solution without first knowing what you want from it. Doing so is crucial to narrowing down your options so that only the most helpful ones remain. It’s also critical that you never sell your own needs short. Don’t settle for a solution that ultimately won’t work somewhere down the road--your organization’s future is worth more than that.

The industry your organization is a part of will largely influence the type of backup solution that you’ll choose. If you’re in a rapidly growing industry, for example, you’ll need a backup solution that can rapidly restore a large amount of data quickly, regardless of the file format. If you have particularly important data, you should make an effort to prioritize its safety with a specialized solution. You should also consider online threats and vulnerabilities which might hamper your organization’s ability to restore this data. Be prepared to put together a list of security, usability, and reliability standards that you want your organization to benefit from in a backup solution.

Determine Your Budget
Once you’ve figured out your baseline needs, you can know for sure that you’ll be looking only at the best solutions that fit your specific needs. Depending on the solution you choose, you’ll be looking at a variety of different options at various price points. Again depending on your choice, you might also have to factor in employee training, as a solution that’s not automatic will need to be run by your workers. You might be tempted to minimize investment into this, but we urge you to not do so here. Your business’ future is on the line, and a subpar backup solution certainly isn’t doing it any favors. You could be risking everything by trying to cut costs, which could lead to a larger investment in recovering from downtime. While a data backup solution doesn’t directly earn you any profits, it keeps you from spending more than necessary in a worst-case scenario.

Selecting a Platform
Just a few short years ago, a backup could have been something as simple as a hard drive or a tape that had a copy of your business’ data on it. Nowadays, there are much more dynamic options available. Instead of a hard drive, you might instead choose to store your data backups in the cloud for easy access in the event of a loss incident. More than ever before, organizations are considering a hybrid cloud solution that entails using a software-based backup in conjunction with a cloud-based system, allowing for a dynamic and practically guaranteed way to access data in the event of a loss scenario.

Making Your Recovery Plan
A data backup plan is no good if you don’t know how to initiate the recovery step. You should have a detailed plan put in place that’s clear and concise enough that anyone is able to handle the task. This also needs to include important information, like which data should be prioritized and what comes after the restoration. Everyone who has a role to play in the backup and disaster recovery process should be privy to these important details.

Test Your Backups
If you don’t test your backups, you run the risk of them not working at a time when you need them most. To keep this from happening, you should frequently test your backups so that you know for certain that they have the highest chance of succeeding. You’ll want to make sure not only that it works, but that it can restore your data successfully. This is the perfect opportunity to make sure that your employees know how it works as well.

Marin Technologies can equip your business with the ideal backup and disaster recovery solution. To learn more, reach out to us at (909) 287-3621 | (208)-316-4357.
