Business Equipment

Bookmark and Share
Thinking about getting technology business equipment? You won't need to go for the latest and greatest product, when a simple basic system usually will do fine for you. Remember, you're only starting out in business, so you must bootstrap as much as possible. That is, use your money wisely--and only when in desperate need. Some of the basic technology business equipment you'll need include:

Computer with proper software

Small business technology planning starts with a computer. It will be your best friend, as you'll be using it constantly. Get good software for it, and your productivity will skyrocket.

Telephone

You'll find that you'll be using your cell phone a lot, but quality won't always be clear. When you're at the desk, a good cordless phone will give you flawless reception. You might also want to check out cost-effective Voice-Over IP services, such as eBay's Skype.

Fax machine

You want to speed up productivity as best as you can, and fax machines give you a good start. You can send form applications to vendors across the country within a few seconds, instead of shipping the documents which takes time. You'll be saving a bundle on shipping costs also. If you're just starting, you can save costs by getting a free fax service from j2 communications (http://j2.com).

Copier

It's vital to make copies of all documents you send out to use as proof. It's also good reference material. A good copy machine will come in handy.

Answering machine or voicemail

Clients usually can call at odd hours. A voicemail system can pick up messages when you're eating dinner with the family, or out vacationing in Europe.

Cell phone

You'll be running around a lot, and chances are good that an important customer will want to reach you when you're away from the desk. Here's a tip: Sell your product to a customer first. Don't bother with getting technology business equipment just yet. When you have a customer, you'll find out what you need.
