General Inquiries
It's June, and everything seems to be shooting up at once: grass, flowers, pollen counts, and apparently, the confidence level of business. The Business Council and Conference Board recently released a survey of chief executive officers that showed 70.4% of company heads expect the U.S. economy to expand in the 2.1% to 3% range this year. While their optimism is tempered by worries about the Federal deficit, I'd say it's good timing!
We all know that "confidence" is a fragile commodity. When business leaders say they're more confident, consumers start to think maybe it's okay to make a purchase, take a vacation, or go out to dinner. And just like that, things start to improve.   Call it the "Field of Dreams" school of economics. If you think it, they will come, and better yet, spend. So, perfect timing, as we gear up for the summer season. Let's hope we continue to have something to cheer about!

Cloud Computing:  Look Before Your Leap
CloudIs your head in the clouds?  Maybe it  should be.

But while the benefits are compelling, this innovative approach is not without risk.     Find out the most important questions to ask potential cloud computing vendors to make sure your business stays firmly grounded.  Read more before making the leap to the cloud.
Benefits of Volume Licensing: Discount & More
There are precious few slam dunks in the world of running a small business. But volume licensing of software products is one of the notable, if misunderstood, exceptions. In a universe where cost control and options are often few and far between, volume licensing offers a hard-to-beat combination of dollars saved and flexibility.  Learn some basics about Microsoft Volume Licensing.
5 Things You May Not Know About Microsoft Excel
Excel is no exception to the rules of a modern relationship. It requires nothing less than a full commitment in learning how to interact. The union can then blossom, and become capable of things you couldn't fathom when you were first introduced.  At Jet Reports, where Excel Reporting is our life, too often we take for granted Excel's impeccable ability to know what we need and automate happiness, at least in our business lives. Convinced it would be unfair to keep all these secrets to ourselves, here is a list of the top five tricks that impress us time after time.
