Follow-Up Notes

Here are a few links to the tech tools we discussed.  There are many products on the market, so it’s not a specific endorsement of any particular tool.  But, they are ones we’ve found useful.

Best Computer Security for a Rural Appraisal Office

KnowB4 – Security training for teams.  This product is set up for larger teams (prices start for 25 people), but it may be worth it even for smaller teams.  Training videos and quizzes offer real-life examples of computer security risks and how to not to fall in the traps

LastPass – One of several useful tools to manage and share passwords safely.  So, no more sticky notes on your computer monitor!

VPN – Virtual Private Networks are how you can stay safe on public wi-fi networks.  This link is for a special sale price.

Best Cloud Storage Options for Rural Appraisers

How to get rid of that dusty server in your copier room.  There are many options, here’s just a few



Google Drive

Ditch the PBX and Get a New Acronym: VoIP

VoiP – Stand for “Voice Over IP” and it means you can get a phone system in your office with no PBX server.  It’s simpler to operate and has more features.  It may also be cheaper. They offer desk phones you can move around the office and just plug in to start using.  In addition to long distance plans, many services offer conference calling, mobile apps and e-Fax as well.  There are so many options, I’ve included a good article from CNET that reviews them here.
