After an initial look at things in this 5-machine office, we found out that the individual use of each machine had introduced all kinds of small problems that added together made a capable machine leaving much to be desired:
– ‘Secretly installed’ items ruining the web browser behaviour and connection to the internet
– Machines cluttered with ‘echoes’ of old files that are no longer needed
– Printing problems of various kinds
– Unnecessary amounts of software posing to ‘solve’ these kinds of problems
Taking just one long afternoon to sort out these issues and unifying the setup and experience on each persons machine, They were left with some good habits to go forward with.
Without the budget to start again, even to go bespoke, a well thought out simple clean-up improved things significantly for Eco Active. I occasionally return to give a check-up.
