Business Solutions for Summer 2019

Learning is a lifelong process. While this time of year tends to conjure up images of children in classrooms, education is a part of life—in one form or another—for people of all ages, at home and at work. This issue of Business Solutions takes a look at the theme of learning from several angles. We begin on page 3 by inviting you to Check Out This Technology Checklist, educational content provided by the National Cyber Security Alliance to help identify security issues that may need addressing. The learning continues on pages 4 and 5 with the Business Spotlight on Gillespie CUSD #7. This school system recently had Madison Communications install a new network to deliver internet with symmetrical Gigabit speeds, enabling the use of more devices and expanding educational opportunities. On page 6, you’ll find a lesson on Dealing with the Dreaded Post-Vacation Inbox, so study up! Then on page 7, we feature AdamWalters, the Edwardsville CEO graduate who won a $2,500 prize at the CEONext National Trade Show for young entrepreneurs. Whenever you have questions about your Madison Communications services or want to learn about new technologies available, please contact us. We enjoy sharing the knowledge we’ve accumulated over many years in this industry.
