Wouldn’t it be life changing to reach Inbox Zero… every day?

Wouldn’t that be good. No emails at the end of each day. No worrying that you’ve missed something important.

Or scrolling through the same emails again and again, when you’d rather be playing with your kids (doh!).

Inbox Zero isn’t reached by having fewer emails… that’s really hard to achieve. Instead, you need to change the way you handle emails.

We’re TKNOWIT Limited, looking after businesses in Malton, Ryedale and beyond. And we’re on a mission to free business owners and managers like you from the hell of email.

Watch our brand new video now. We’ll tell you about a cool feature in Office 365 called Focused Inbox. It’s a better way to do email.

Could a puppy get your business hacked?

How lovely. Lisa in accounts has a brand new puppy.

It’s taking over her life. There are photos on her desk. It’s all she seems to talk about. Hey – she even changed her password to include his name.

Because hackers are clever. They look at social media feeds, and build profiles of people based on what they share. You’d be surprised how many people base their passwords on their pets or children’s names.

We’re tKnowIT, here to protect businesses in Malton, Ryedale and further.

And we’ve created a new video about this very subject. You need to watch it now.
