What if you lost it all?

Location: San Dimas, CA, USA

Today a customer, Sally, had an issue with her PC.  It would not start.  She would press the power button and nothing.  No lights; completely dead.  And to make matters worse, her entire QuickBooks and company files and documentation was located on her PC.

Sally's company does the payroll for their clients and they had to print out checks ASAP before their Friday deadline.  This put a great deal of stress on the situation.

Sally works on an HP Pavillion All-in-One PC, and given the time restraints, I decided the best corse of action would be to open the All-in-One so I could access the hard drive to get her files.  Sally is fortunate because the issue was a problem with the power switch and not the hard drive. Her data were completely intact.



But what if it was something more severe?  What if the hard drive was toast?  That would have had major ramifications for the firm costing 10s of thousands of dollars.  Or worse, it could have destroyed the entire company.

This is why having a backup strategy is so crucial in business today.  A local and cloud backup plan would cost a fraction of the potential loss that might occur should a disaster take place.  With technology, it isn't a question of if it will fail, but when it will fail.  Fortunately for Sally, we were able to save her data and the company occurred no loss, this time.  Suffice it to say, from now on all of Sally's information is being backed up and secured with Tricom.  Should an incident like this happen again, she will be prepared to handle it.  She can also sleep better at night knowing that her data is secure with Tricom and she is free to focus on more important matters.

Managed IT Services will save you MONEY

Location: San Dimas, CA 91773, USA

In today’s competitive business climate, companies are finding it necessary to cut costs.  For the most part, the single biggest expense for is labor.  With endlessly increasing regulations, healthcare costs, and employee retention needs, service outsourcing is becoming more attractive when viewed from a cost-benefit analysis.

One of the fastest growing outsourced services in the past few years has been in the field of information technology (IT).  The managed IT service model typically takes the form of an ongoing service level arrangement in which the provider remotely monitors, manages and updates a customer’s technology infrastructure, systems, and services such as email, network and security software, or increasingly more complex pieces of technology such as business applications and analytics. IT functions once commonly handled in-house become outsourced, effectively.

Tricom offers Managed IT Services

With over 10 years of experience in the IT field, Tricom has a proven track record of performance and service.  Whether you are still a small business or well established, Tricom’s experienced leadership team will work closely with you to design the most optimum and efficient IT strategy to meet your company’s needs at a minimal cost.

Best Virus Protection

Location: San Dimas, CA, USA

When Windows 10 rolled out, Microsoft included Windows Defender (Anti-Virus) with it.  So I thought, “Oh cool, Windows comes with free anti-virus”.   And it’s free! but is it such a great deal?  Is it good enough anti-virus I can trust to protect my business?

Well for most of the business owners I know, FREE is a very good word.  Anything they can get for free the better.  But what will it cost them if their company should get a piece of ransomware that encrypts all of their company files?  Or a virus that emails all of their clients more copies of the virus.  How much does that “free” software cost then?

This happened to someone I know about a year ago.  They contracted a piece of ransomware from and email that encrypted all their office documents on the network, and in every folder was included a little note informing them that they could get their files decrypted for a very reasonable fee of $5,000.

Today, malware and cyber attacks are an everyday occurrence.  One report shows that malware costs US businesses over $491 billion in 2014 alone.  And I expect to see more cyber threats in the next few years.  Given this fact, one doing a simple cost-benefit analysis should conclude that the benefits of professional virus/malware protection far outweighs the cost.

Okay, so what anti-virus/anti-malware software should I get?  Which is the best?



The plain answer is Eset.  Even before working at Tricom I used Eset.  It is far above the best anti-virus I have ever used.  Partly because of performance.  It never slows down my computer, unlike other anti-virus software I have used in the past.  And partly because it is so good at catching threats and stopping them before they even reach your PC.

Now full disclosure, we at Tricom are resellers of Eset.   We sell Eset because we think it is the best and we recommend it to all of our clients.  We use it on our personal home computers as well as all of our work computers.

Business Phones San Dimas

Polycom Phone




Small office PBX phone systems today combine the best of both worlds. You get the features of a traditional, landline-based small office PBX. Plus, with a unified communications solution, you get an Internet Protocol (IP) PBX phone system as well as advanced collaboration and communication tools.

The result: With next-generation small office PBX systems, small businesses have the type of communications systems their larger competitors have, in a solution that’s built especially for their needs and budgets.

What’s a Small Office PBX?

A traditional small office PBX (Private Branch Exchange) is a telephone switching system that connects a company’s internal phone users to each other and to the public phone system. On a traditional small office PBX, employees can easily make calls within the company simply by dialing an extension.

How are Today’s Small Office PBX Systems Different?

Next-Generation communications solutions offer the same features as traditional PBX systems and much more. Advanced unified communications solutions often include an IP PBX, which runs on the same IP network many small companies use to run their businesses. This saves costs and minimizes network management.

What is Unified Communications?

A unified communications solution unifies and simplifies all forms of communication regardless of location, time or device. It provides sophisticated features such as “presence”, which is the ability to determine the best way to contact others within your company at any given time.

Google Apps for Work

Google for Work

One of the most important tools needed to run a successful business is email.  It's as important as a telephone number.  However, it is all too common for businesses to have unreliable email service.  Or they still rely on a free email service that gives an unprofessional impression to their customers. 
In my field of work, I have come across quite a few email providers. Some good, some okay, and some downright awful.  How can you screw up email?  Well, I have seen some pretty bad set ups.  From mailboxes filling up so fast that the customer has to spend half their day downloading and deleting old emails.  To people, not receiving emails because the client's email service IP address was blacklisted for spam.  
So what if you are not the most tech savvy? What email service should you look for?  Well first off, if you are running a business you must have a name@yourbusienss.com address.  That is a requirement!  It shows people that you are serious and not running a hobby or running your business from your house (even if you might be).

And if you have employees you need to make sure they can stay productive.  If a company is having technical problems with their email service, that could not only cost the company productivity, it could cost the company customers!

Okay, Jason, just get to the point!

You need Google Apps for Work (now called G Suite).  Of all of the email service providers, G Suite is hands down the best.  Better than Godaddy, Microsoft 365, MS Exchanged, and all the other smaller services.  

Here are a few key reasons why I, as an IT professional, recommend G Suite.

You can use your own web domain (YourName@YourCompany.com)

Email is 100% web based.   No need to set up your email on a desktop program like Outlook or Thunderbird.  All you'll need is a web browser and you can access your email anywhere.

If you get a lot of junk mail, Gmail has advanced spam, malware, and phishing site filters to keep you safe from threats.

Mobile set up is a snap.  I can't tell you how many hours I have spent helping my clients set up their email on their phones and tablets. Simply tap "Add Account"  2. Select "Gmail"  3. Enter your emails address and password.  4. You're now ready to Rock & Roll.

But wait, G Suite is so much more than just email. You also get a whole suite of cloud-based productivity apps to turbo charge your workload.  All cloud-based, available anywhere, at no extra charge.

Key features:

  • Business email through Gmail
  • Video and voice conferencing
  • Smart shared calendars
  • Documents, spreadsheets, and presentations
  • 2-step verification and SSO Security options
  • 30GB cloud storage


Tricom is an Authorized Google G Suite for Work Partner and Certified Administrator. For more information call (866) 447-4174.
