Business Solutions Seminar & Technology Expo planned

Helping small and medium sized businesses stay competitive is the focus of a day-long technology solutions seminar in February.  Applied Tech, Madison-based IT firm, is taking the previous “break/fix” model of IT services a step beyond the recent shift into Managed Services towards Business Solutions, a forward-thinking, strategic initiative designed to keep a business ahead of the competition. To tip off the newest solution concept, Applied Tech is hosting an all-day Business Solutions Seminar and Technology Expo next month on Wednesday, February 27, 2008. 


Attendees will learn that enterprise-level technology solutions are now affordable for small and medium sized businesses.


The free seminar includes an economic outlook by top regional economic forecaster, Donald Nichols, on “Wisconsin’s Likely Performance in an Economic Downturn.”  Nichols is Professor Emeritus of Economics and Public Policy at UW-Madison and has frequently been honored as a top forecaster by industry and financial groups, including the Chicago Federal Reserve Bank.


The event, Business Solutions Seminar and Technology Expo, will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, February. 27, at the Monona Terrace Convention Center (Madison, WI).


Best practices involving business accounting, internal and external communication, customer relations and technology solutions will be featured throughout the day, along with a hands-on technology expo, lunch with vendors and consultants, door prizes and day-long presentations by vendors.


The event is sponsored by Applied Tech and registration may be made online at Applied Tech, 203 S. Paterson, was founded in Madison in 1999 by Kurt Sippel, and expanded to Stevens Point in 2005. Applied Tech is also a co-owner of the popular monthly High Tech Happy Hour.
