Make Travel Arrangements For The Business Trip from Milwaukee to Chicago

After having been told that I had been chosen to represent the Image of my IT Consulting company in Chicago. It was a great surprise. I have worked extremely hard at my IT Support job at Wheeler’s IT Consulting Firm. The trip was scheduled to last 5 days. From May 16,2016 to May 21,2016. My orders were straight and precise. We need this account at all cost. I was one of 5 consultants working at the Wheelers IT Firm. This was the first business trip that I would be making along. All planning preparation were left entirely to me. I have lined up my business to Chicago in 5 steps. As junior consultants, my first question was who will be paying for this trip. Each company has different rules and policies in place for business trips. Some companies may allow you to use a corporate credit card for your expenses or require you to pay for expenses up front with company reimbursements paid back to you after the trip. Keep track of all receipts and find out specific details; such as having a daily limit on food expenses. It is important to be familiar with your company’s travelling policies, as your actions on the business trip will reflect on you and your ability to follow and demonstrate company policy.

Project specifications: Small Business Office Operating System Upgrade

by Russell Loving   Upgrading Office Computers to Windows 10 For most people, simply upgrading the operating system on a home computer can be a very daunting task.  Although there are generally step by step instructions, it can still be a difficult venture. For an IT professional updating one computer would be relatively simple, but upgrading numerous desktops, and laptops all within different geographical locations takes a considerable amount of planning and execution.   The first thing to consider would be the overall scope of the project. The initial planning stage would involve gathering the necessary information needed to schedule each related task. The total number of computers that need to be upgraded, the location of the computers that need to be upgraded, what existing software would have to be re-installed or updated to function with the new operating system,  and what operating system is currently in use. In this specific case, there are a total of 169 computers that need to be upgraded. These computers consist of 57 desktop workstations, and 112 laptop computers. The office locations are all within the Midwestern region, in the cities of Milwaukee, Chicago, and Indianapolis. The computers currently are equipped with Windows 7 as an OS, and need to be upgraded to Windows 10. In addition to those needs, the computers also have Microsoft Office 2007 and 10 other applications that will need to be installed and function after the upgrade.   In my estimation, a minimum of nine IT professionals would be needed to oversee the project and support users through the migration. At least one contact person at each location...
