Equipping you with the right tools as remote work becomes the norm.

When work structures change and times are uncertain, business owners can have peace of mind knowing their teams are set up for remote success. But, for those who are not accustomed to managing a remote work force, prepping your team to work from home can seem like a daunting task. It can be a challenge knowing the right questions to ask to ensure readiness. How will our company data stay safe? How will my team connect back to the office? Should my team bring home their work-issued devices or should they use personal computers? Asking these questions, and more, is a great place to start to ensure your team remains productive, efficient, streamlined and collaborative. 


Geoffrey Ness, owner and president of Nessit, a Seacoast-based IT services company, is no stranger to the ins-and-outs of remote work. Having started Nessit in 2011, Geoff has seen the impressive technology transition in businesses, including the nice-to-have requests for remote capabilities to the can’t-live-without-remote progression of businesses. He understands the importance of a reliable and valuable remote team. In today’s situation, he has equipped his team with the correct tools to assist clients in this ever-changing economy.

WordPress has released a new editor, Gutenberg! Named after the inventor of the printing press, WordPress created Gutenberg with the hopes of replacing the current visual editor, which requires users to utilize shortcodes and HTML, with a much more powerful version. The goal of this new editor is to start embracing “little blocks” and to make page editing easier for users. To learn more about the new editor, visit the WordPress Gutenberg playground.
