From the CEO

Marc Gau­drault catches us up with the lat­est TekSavvy news.

Since our in­cep­tion back in 1998, our goal has been to put the cus­tomer first. And al­though the way in which the In­ter­net is used has changed sig­nif­i­cantly over the past 16 years, our re­spon­si­bil­ity to you has re­mained the same. So how ex­actly has the In­ter­net evolved? I’m glad you asked! Here are some of the rev­o­lu­tion­ary items you’ll find in this is­sue.

One of the largest re­cent “booms” has been in the world of gam­ing. Games that were once pur­chased in-store can now be down­loaded on­line. But be­cause these down­loads are any­where be­tween 200MB to 50GB, reach­ing your monthly limit can hap­pen fast. Our net­work has seen a steady in­crease in gam­ing traf­fic over the past 5 years and a re­cent re­port from Cisco sug­gests 57% of all in­ter­net traf­fic will be orig­i­nated by non-PC de­vices by 2018.

Just as games and mu­sic are now de­liv­ered to you dig­i­tally, the way you watch tele­vi­sion has made an un­con­ven­tional shift and it too has tran­si­tioned onto the In­ter­net. Those that have cut out their monthly TV sub­scrip­tions have aptly been la­belled “cord cut­ters”. In a re­cent on­line poll 63% of re­spon­dents said they would “cut the cord” if they could find the con­tent they wanted on­line. Whether it’s “binge watch­ing” an en­tire sea­son of a fa­vorite show or dis­cov­er­ing a se­ries for the first time video stream­ing now ac­counts for more than half of the traf­fic across most net­works in North Amer­ica. Stream­ing in the liv­ing room is a fact of life thanks to Ap­ple TV, Roku, Smart TVs and next gen gam­ing con­soles.

Com­merce has ex­panded to not only in­clude the In­ter­net, but in many cases, to re­quire it for suc­cess. In or­der to reach all the right mar­kets, it’s es­sen­tial to have a web­site to de­velop your on­line pres­ence. Con­sumers look­ing to buy to­day re­search on­line and search for re­tail­ers be­fore brows­ing in a bricks and mor­tar store. En­gag­ing cus­tomers both new and old on­line is es­sen­tial in build­ing a com­mu­nity of fans for your brand.

Whether it’s just one of these that af­fects you or per­haps even all of them, TekSavvy has the so­lu­tion that’s the right fit for you. But don’t take my word for it. See for yourself what pack­age you need to keep up with your In­ter­net habits with the TekSavvy Web App. All you need to do is an­swer a few sim­ple ques­tions!
