What is Windows 10?
Microsoft’s latest version of the Windows operating system, Windows 10, is a great new tool that businesses can leverage for greater productivity. However, Windows 10 is far more than just an upgrade to previous versions of the Windows operating system. In fact, Microsoft’s new OS improves significantly in areas where Windows 8 and 8.1 failed to produce the engagement Microsoft was expecting.
Upgrading to the latest operating system can often be a hassle, especially for the small and medium-sized business. That’s why ISC wants to help you make the best decision possible for the future of your company’s technology systems. Here are some of the great new features and opportunities Windows 10 provides for the average SMB.
The Return of Familiar Features
A slick, yet familiar, user interface.
Windows 10 takes the many features that users of Windows 7 love, and combines them with a sleek Metro-like interface similar to Windows 8. The Start menu, which was strangely absent with Windows 8, makes its return, as does the classic search feature. The return of a classic Windows interface means that businesses don’t have to invest as much time into training their staff on how to use Windows 10, compared to Windows 8 and 8.1. Windows 10 is designed to work on all devices, from Windows Phone to tablets, to desktops, making it a universal experience for users of any device.
New Customizable Features
Your Windows, your way.
Windows 10 offers several new features and customization settings for others. For example, you can customize what apps appear in your Start menu and taskbar. If you can think of it, chances are that you can probably customize it in Windows 10. Besides the improvements to the customization settings, Windows 10 comes with several new features and applications, like Microsoft’s new browser, Edge, and Cortana, a desktop voice assistant that can also be found on Windows Phone.
Built-in Security Features
Protect your business from the ground up.
Microsoft has gone to great lengths to make Windows 10 the most secure Windows OS so far. It was designed specifically with security in mind, and contains several features, such as biometric settings, identity protection, cryptographic processing, and hardware-based security features that are all designed to augment and protect users of Windows 10. With the many new, built-in security features that Windows 10 offers, you’ll be more confident that your systems, augmented by your other IT security solutions, are secured and protected at all times.

It wasn't until someone called to see if we had an IT service provider that I realized I have used the services of ISC for over 20 years and have relied on their expertise. In a previous job, ISC managed our SQL server and POS system for 30+ stores in 5 states plus our office network. In my present job, they have been there when we expanded from a 3-person office to over a dozen employees across 4 states. We are able to collaborate using Microsoft Office 365 and a virtual private network. The staff is experienced, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. I wouldn't trust anyone else.
As a mid-size manufacturer of custom woodwork our operations are large enough to be complex but too small to justify an internal IT staff. ISC has been an ideal fit for us. Capable, responsive, cost-efficient, and they share our customer-centric values. ISC allows us to focus on what we do best with the peace of mind knowing our IT infrastructure is in good hands.
I am pleased to strongly recommend the team at ISC Kentucky. For years we attempted to support our IT hardware and software installation/upgrade needs internally with limited success. The ISC team effectively assessed our current state, established and executed an improvement plan that covered immediate needs AND projected risks, and have consistently supported our ongoing needs…largely via remote access…in a timely and efficient manner. Partnering with ISC has been clearly one of the best decisions we’ve made for our business…so we can focus on the business.
I could not be more satisfied with ISC Kentucky. They were vital in advising, implementing, and supporting my family medicine practice network. Every time I have needed network support their service was prompt and courteous. I feel that I am a valued customer and they have my best interests in mind.
We have been using ISC Kentucky for almost 2 years. We were in the market looking for an IT company to take care of our needs as a skilled nursing home. One of our board members uses ISC and gave us James Naive as a contact for them. We have been more than satisfied with their work and their knowledge of what we needed and when we needed it. They came in and looked around our building assessed what we had and developed a plan for us to follow to get where we needed to be. I rest much more comfortably knowing that our IT solutions are in their hands. I would highly recommend ISC Kentucky to anyone looking to solve their IT problems. ISC have professional and knowledgeable staff that have handled any situation that we have had in the last 2 years.
As a company we brought in ISC to handle the equipment at our office and 16 locations. They have provided excellent customer service on all levels. They are quick to respond and to resolve any issues. Their office and service staff is efficient, knowledgeable and professional. ISC staff will be instrumental in our planning for the next year. They have been a real asset to our company. We appreciate the relationship and service they have provided.
