When you just want IT to work!

There are a lot of computer shops out there that you can call up to fix an issue or install a piece of equipment. They might be able to get you out of crisis mode, but they aren’t looking at the full picture.

We believe (and have proven) that if you proactively manage technology, run maintenance religiously, and monitor a business network, everyday issues and downtime will be greatly reduced.

This is what makes us different than your typical tech support company. Sure, we can fix computer issues when you have them, but our specialty is preventing them in the first place.

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.
    President, Accredited Tax, Inc. / Chino, CA

    The uniqueness I have experienced is one of being treated like I am their only and most special client. The response time and willingness to help and wide range of knowledge of technology is beyond my expectations of any firm.

  • Marin Tech provides excellent service with personal attention

What to Expect Out of Android 11

Suggested Applications

Within Android 11, the Home screen will have a few more options added onto its capabilities—namely, suggested applications appearing at the bottom. Based on your activity, these suggested applications will change throughout the day.

Of course, this feature can be turned off. Long pressing the Home screen and navigating from there to the Home settings allows you to turn off these Suggestions.

Customized Notifications

Instead of having unimportant notifications bury your crucial ones, Android 11 allows users to categorize them into tiers. As a result, their critical messages can remain at the top of the list. Priority notifications come in at the top, as you would expect, with regular alerts coming in afterwards and silent notifications after that. If you no longer want notifications, you can deactivate them as well.

Different messaging apps can even have different conversations prioritized, so that certain conversations will generate specialized icons to alert you.

Power Menu Features and Tools

Android 11’s power button menu features a lot more than previous iterations have. In addition to the Lock, Restart, and Power off options, Android 11’s options will include the ability to use Google Pay on demand, edit the settings on your smart home devices, and check any camera feeds you’ve connected. This menu can even be customized through your Settings > System > Gestures > Power menu.

Simple Screenshots

Screenshots are highly useful things in business for a variety of reasons. Android 11 will make it much simpler to take and edit these on your mobile device. Furthermore, Android will come with a screen recording capability that can be accessed through your Quick Settings, with some tweaking.

To activate this feature, you must edit your Quick Settings. To do so, drag down on the notification shade and select the edit button in the bottom corner—it looks like a small pencil. At the bottom of those options, you’ll see the Screen Recorder option. Long-press and drag it into the Quick Settings panel and you’re all set.

Are you looking forward to the release of Android 11? If you’re reading this after it was released, what do you think? Share your impressions with us in the comments!

How We Streamline IT Support for You

Let’s consider how your employees may experience an issue while working remotely.

They’re at home, trying to accomplish everything that they need to accomplish. Their schedules are full, and deadlines are looming. Obviously, it would not be good if your team’s technology encountered an issue, so it is naturally going to happen. Someone on your team is bound to have some problem with their tools, where nothing they try makes anything better.

Here’s the challenge: as your employees are floundering, they are also distanced away from whatever in-office support they would normally have.

Working with a managed service provider means that your provider has remote capabilities as well, and that they can use these capabilities to solve your team’s IT challenges. This is generally accomplished proactively with an MSP’s services, and as a result, you and your team will experience fewer interruptions overall and accomplish more as a result.

To achieve this, we use the RMM tool as we mentioned above. Using it, we’ll keep track of the solutions your workforce uses and ensure that your team is able to work.

Of course, this isn’t the only thing that an MSP can do for you. With their remote monitoring and management software, they can offer much more for your operations, including:

  • If given the opportunity, RMM solutions are low-profile enough to be installed and configured in the background of a device ahead of time. In doing so, you guarantee that your employees and clients are protected, as you can remotely push critical patches and other updates and install them to their devices as well as provide support firsthand.
  • On the topic, RMM software can also be used to help manage and support your clients and employees by providing them with the solutions that they will need. Whether it’s a VoIP application for your telephony needs, basic productivity solutions, or other essential business resources, you can ensure that your team is equipped with what they’ll need.

Here at Marin Technologies, our team is ready and able to fulfill your needs. Regardless of where your employees are as they work, we can use our tools to help support them. To learn more about the various IT solutions we have to offer, give us a call at (208) 329-6792.

Point-Of-Sale Systems Do More Than You Think

Defining the Point-of-Sale System

As the system that’s in place at the point where a sale takes place, a point-of-sale system has a pretty accurate name. The basic concept behind these devices is to minimize human error in as many ways possible, as productivity is simultaneously maximized at the final transaction.

This once meant that a POS system was effectively a cash drawer with a calculator tacked on, but today, there are many more features available to a business. For instance:

Big Data Metrics and Insights

“How many of this tchotchke have we sold this year? When did we sell most of them?” Modern POS systems can provide a business with precisely that kind of data, assisting them by delivering insights and simple reports for them. These reports can help business owners identify trends, which can help them boost sales and benefit their other metrics as well. The inclusion of customer relationship management into the modern point-of-sale system has given even more benefits to business owners.

Consolidation

With online retail came more business opportunities, but also more data to process. Unlike the POS systems that were around when online retail first became viable, modern systems can integrate the data sets produced by online and in-house transactions. This gives business owners a more streamlined means of properly managing their inventory.

Mobile Functionality

In no small part due to the health and hygiene benefits that come with them, cashless and contactless payment options have also seen an exponential growth in popularity. Recent predictions see a 2025 with 75 percent of all transactions as cashless, so it is important that these solutions are put in place sooner than later.

The modern POS system is the best choice for a business owner looking for direct benefits to their operations. Marin Technologies can help with the technology needed to make the most of it. Learn more about what we can do by giving us a call at (208) 329-6792.
