Windows XP and Office 2003 will no longer receive updates from Microsoft after April 8, 2014. Newer products have been designed to make the most of the Internet and latest technologies. If you are looking to grow your business by reaching more customers efficiently and effectively, then updating your operating system to Windows 7 or 8 is the way to go.
What will it look like if you continue to run Windows XP after April 8th?
- Your computer will be at risk for security breaches – putting your company and client data in jeopardy.
- Software vendors won’t support their products that run on XP because they won’t be getting updates from Microsoft either.
Having a data breach or substandard software only leads to trouble for your business. Interruption in your daily business activities because of software issues will cost you money. Be proactive and upgrade your system – avoid the problem now.
Windows XP has an infection rate six times higher than the most-current Windows 8.
If you have been putting off upgrading your office computers (for whatever reason), this gives you a great reason to make the change. CTI Technology can help you find out if your current PCs and software are compatible with Windows 7 or 8.
The end of Windows XP is near; the countdown has begun.
