So what works for you?

On September 21, 2007, in SMBTNFresno, by

Last night at SMBTNFresno the SMB partner group meeting was supposed to be on vendors… and it ended up that I
couldn’t arrange in time (thanks
Anne for pinging me up with your vendor listing as I am arranging such a meeting for November)

Bottom line we had “smörgåsbord” night.

I talked about Quickbooks (how clients
screw it up) and tips and tricks of knowing if the file was a good data…
If you see the account “opening balance equity”
that’s a sure sign of a not well set up client as that’s a QB plug account.
Quickbooks add ins – http://marketplace.intuit.com/
BillQuick that works in Quickbooks and Microsoft accounting ..which is cool as if the clients
later move the time keeping capturing part is the same program –

Ed talked about Drobo –Data Robotics, Inc.:

Parted magic (works on raid) – http://partedmagic.com/downloads.html

What storage units work on Vista (Netgear SC 101T) what don’t Lacie Ethernet big disk
(beware of “Vista compatiable versus Vista certified”)

Haute Secure web browser protection – http://www.hautesecure.com/

OpenDNShttp://www.opendns.com/

Kasaya (how expensive the buy in is if you don’t go hosted)

WSUS (what we like, what we don’t like and I made the comment that if
you do managed services, WSUS is not a help.. and I ‘play’ Shavlik
against WSUS all the time as Shavlik is the tool to use when I want to
patch and patch NOW)

Bottom line everyone went home with a nugget that make it worth it for them.

So…what works for you?
