Is Windows 7 still best for business?

Recycle old computers
Since Windows 8 (Vista 8?) has been lapped with 8.1 I'm happier with the user interface and recently put my Windows 7 laptop to bed. Windows 8.1 has been installed on a number of machines from 32 bit to 64 bit with no real problems. I've used it for gaming, coding and photo editing. I still feel a bit lost with the lack of a Start Menu but the visual appearance of the Start Button on 8.1 makes all the difference.

However, my success may be short lived, as Microsoft have decided to release Windows 9! I presume windows 9 is an all encompassing upgrade to Windows 8 which takes a step back from mobile devices.

I've heard that Microsoft will release Windows 9 as an upgrade, downloadable from Windows update or Windows Store. RTM is likely to be rolled out in 2015 but you'll be able to get a beta well before then.

Windows 8.1 has already been service packed a number of times. My updates history has already seen Windows 8.1 update and I expect MS to release another update (8.2 and 8.3) in keeping with the great tradition of service packs.

Regardless of the success of Windows 8.3 and Windows 9 (or Windows 9.1), Windows 7 is the standard replacement for Windows XP in a business environment, and will continue to be so for quite some time.

For office PC's you really don't need the latest and greatest Windows 8 computers and as long as you have migrated from Windows XP you should be fine on Windows 7 premium and Enterprise Editions. Windows 7 works perfectly well for PC Gamer's and CUDA developers, anyone considering cutting edge Media development should consider all upgrade options carefully.

Are you still hoarding Windows XP and Windows NT servers? Call us to collect and recycle your redundant I.T. and Telecoms. For business in the UK you can find our website with our London contact number at Telephone Recycling London

Do we buy telephone systems for cash?

We buy telephone systems
Whats your Phone System really worth?
We can offer cash value on certain streams of telephone technology and brands depending on condition, specification, brand and quantity.

However, the common misconception that the majority of old telephone systems have value, which a lot of them don't. Scrap value of circuit boards, no larger than a standard handheld calculator, encased in half a pound of heavy duty beige plastic is not the best way to collect scrap metals for example.

Bulk recycling of telephones in any quantity may include telecoms that have some value and we will inform you of any resale value within the collection but we always explain the costs of recycling, data removal where necessary with redundant IT and collection and removal costs if appropriate.

Its also worth considering that a percentage of the telephones in question are faulty either display, buttons, jack plugs or audio response. From our experience, including known brands of telephone, known faults for particular brands, or visual condition; we can average out that 20% of all phones we collect on residual value are faulty. We will take this into consideration when quoting any prices.

As business's quickly phone around London looking for telephone recycling they quickly find that many recycling companies charge thousands to clear a lot amount of technology - or simply wont collect based on the lack of profitability. Its not unusual to speak to customers claiming to have been quoted very high prices for clearance.

Telephone Recycling London is a great new site to allow everyone access to our highly recommended telephone recycling service in the Cheshire Area. We have already seen a great response from big companies in The Capital, and you can read all our testimonials on our website. You can also find more information on our previous post.

Office Clearance at BDL

Office Clearance of IT, Telecoms and Furniture
Wembley-based contractor Carey recently bought £50m turnover, drywall specialist The BDL Group.

BDL was founded over 30 years ago by Frank Burke and has developed into a market leader in the drywall sector.

The firm has earned its reputation on big London schemes like The Shard, Olympics, Terminal 5 and Canary Wharf, but also operates further afield across the south and Midlands.

BDL contacted Systems Recycling Ltd to remove the old phone system from its offices in Uxbridge, Middlesex and a day or two later only phone system disposal remained to be recycled.

Ensuring the office clearance is completed in a timely manner can be a headache and breaching agreements increases costs. Effectively managing a workforce during a buy out while orchestrating the logistics of moving offices needs a fast response from contractors.

That's why Systems Recycling work quickly to ensure all collections are made as soon as possible.
