About Technically Simple
Technically Simple…isn’t that a contradiction in terms?
In our modern age we have access to a wealth of technology. In theory this should be making life much easier for us humans – allowing us to focus on the things we love best while computers perform all the tedious tasks. The reality is that technology has earned a bad rap and is too often seen as a source of stress rather than a trusted sidekick. Our mission is simple: to help people and organizations produce powerful results in their lives and businesses while making effective use of technology.
Looking at the BIG Picture
While it’s tempting to dive right in and starting using technology, we emphasize the importance of having a clear plan in place. This includes look at what processes are already in place and what workflows are missing. As part of this process, we also work with individuals and organizations to gain clarity on where they’re going and what motivates this growth.
Navigating the Technology Jungle
There’s a lot of a lot of marketing hype when it comes to technology. We help you navigate the technology jungle by providing specific recommendations for both hardware and software – think of us as your technology sherpas. Technology that we’ve put through its paces that truly makes the world a better place is given our Technically Simple Approved™ designation and forms the basis of our recommendations.
Learning the Ropes
Having well designed technology at your disposal is only half the story. It’s equally important that the technology be configured in a way that matches your processes and workflows and that you and your staff receive the appropriate amount of training. We help you configure your technology in the most optimum way possible and provide both onsite and remote/Internet training to individuals and groups.
Technically Simple also offers productivity courses to support you in being productive in all areas of your life. These courses give you the opportunity to look at your life and business in a new light and provide you with proven methodologies and approaches to help you rise above overwhelm. The practical elements of our courses focus on specific technologies and includes strategies for scheduling time, managing email and much more. Visit the Courses section of this website for more information and contact Tim Stringer if you’re interested in hosting one of our courses within your organization.
