Welcome to the latest techbytes newsletter. We're back from our summer break with lots of useful information and exciting news for you.

It's been a busy summer for projectfive - and it looks set to continue thanks to the release of Windows 7 in a couple of weeks time. We've shared our thoughts on this new Operating System here - plus there's a few other interesting articles that I'm sure you'll benefit from reading.

Double your productivity for less than £200

No – I’m not making some wild ‘TV Shopping Station’ sweeping statement.  I’m going to talk about something very tangible that will have an immediate impact on the way you use your PC.

Whenever people come to our office and they see our Computers, they are often amazed by how we use them.  I never thought that we did anything spectacular – but it turns out that a lot of people disagree.

What we do isn’t new.  And it doesn’t cost a lot – but the impact is huge.

Windows 7 - released on the 22nd October

The time is nearly upon us when Microsoft launch their latest operating system. 

After the mixed reaction to Windows Vista, Windows 7 promises a lot – it needs to capture the hearts and minds of businesses – something that Windows Vista never really achieved.

Woking Means Business

projectfive will be returning to the Woking Means Business exhibition for our 4th year. 

We always enjoy the day as it gives us plenty of opportunity to catch up with our clients, meet new people, and help make as many introductions as possible. 

It’s a great day for everyone – with some good conversations to be had on our stand (W17).

And, what's more, our Managing Director, Steve Coburn, will be giving a free seminar at 11:30 - make sure you don't miss it!

Business Startup Exhibition

Our fourth exhibition this year will take us to Olympia for the Business Startup Exhibition.  We’ve been told to expect 20,000 visitors over the course of the two days – so we’re expecting a busy time!

Business Startup is the UK's biggest show for anyone starting a business or expanding a business. With hundreds of seminars and exhibitors, one-to-one advice and networking, it's the perfect opportunity to find all the recession-defying tools and information to help your business thrive.

What's more, it's completely free.

What to do with all those business cards?

Exhibitions, networking, meetings... they all mean one thing – more business cards. What do you do with yours? A neat pile by your computer perhaps? Or a card file box, or a folder, or several piles dotted around the office? The list goes on, and I doubt there’s many of you who meticulously type them into your computer.

We’ve had stands at two exhibitions this year, and we decided that, having the spent hours typing business cards into a spreadsheet after last year’s expos, this year would be very different. I’m talking about card scanning – and an exhibition seemed the ideal time
for an experiment!

What are we doing this month?

We've got another busy month ahead of us - our main priority is, as always, looking after our clients. but the BIG distraction for us is our move to new offices!

From the 1st November we'll be fully operational from 2400 sq ft of of prime office space in St. George’s House on Knoll Road, Camberley. 

Progress is being made on the fit-out of our new offices as we look to take advantage of the market conditions and move to a larger office in the centre of Camberley.

projectfive's new offices

It’s an exciting time for projectfive as we take the bold step to expand whilst the economists are still warning of tough times ahead.
