Frank Bettag of Business Computer Associates LLC to sponsor March 18 meeting

Frank Bettag of Business Computer Associates LLC to sponsor March 18 meeting

We live in a digital world, now more than ever. With our meetings held virtually, our documents instantly shareable, and all our devices synced with each other so we never miss a notification, it’s easier than ever to collaborate with partners and clients worldwide. But when technology evolves daily, it’s hard to keep up. 

Business Computer Associates LLC is where California businesses turn to stay savvy, connected, and most importantly, safe. Founded in 2005, BCALLC provides onsite IT support to businesses in Ventura, Santa Barbara, and Los Angeles Counties, as well as the Bay area. Frank Bettag specializes in helping small businesses set up and manage their Microsoft and Windows devices and apps, from data backup to Office 365 implementation to basic desktop support. 

While some new clients certainly take advantage of the more fundamental training and support that Frank provides, established businesses often turn to BCALLC for data management and protection. Losing a few hours of work when Microsoft Word crashes is nothing compared to losing whole harddrives or even servers to a power surge or data breach. Frank helps businesses to back up their files locally and in the cloud, set up security measures to protect that data, and attempt to recover unprotected data in the event of a disaster. 

In addition, Frank and his teammates run interference when scammers, spoofers, and phishers attack. Phishing schemes are only becoming more common and more sophisticated, with targeted attacks or “spear phishing” the most frequent. Scammers use spoofed email addresses, malicious attachment file types, and links to infect your device or collect your information. BCALLC is determined to educate business owners on all the ways they can be duped into handing over the keys to their data, and protect them from future attacks. According to a recent Comparitech article, small businesses are more likely to be the victim of spear phishing than businesses with more than 250 employees.

Frank’s ideal client is a small business owner who needs a productivity boost. He can recommend tech solutions to improve both your employees’ and your customers’ experience, to make your data safer and more manageable, and to keep you connected in a society where a computer is always within reach. Technology keeps changing and so does BCALLC. As their customer base grows, they are looking forward to adding a new team member to continue to provide fast, responsive support and solutions to their customers.

Looking ahead to those April showers and May flowers, one year into pandemic

Looking ahead to those April showers and May flowers, one year into pandemic

March of 2020 began over 365 days ago, and some of us feel like it never really ended. As we move into a new calendar month, though, it's a good time to try to shake off that perpetual-winter feeling and look forward to what April has to offer.

Some messages from our group...

What makes Synergy Business Connections a special group?

Have you ever heard of a Troika? If not, you should come to a meeting. It really makes the Synergy Business Connections group so special. Not only do we collaborate as a big group during bi-weekly group meetings, we also get to get to know the individuals in our group through bi-weekly Troikas. Relationships are so important, and our Troikas help us to build our personal connections with people. You can’t do that in a massive group breakfast or in a huge happy hour mixer. We get to learn and teach each other, and by doing so, we make each other that much more successful.
