IT360 has been testing the upgrade process and so far it has been going well. We know that it isn’t going to work for every business environment. If you would like to see if your business should upgrade to Windows 10, contact our office. Our upgrade process includes testing a few machines in each of your departments on Windows 10. This is to make sure all of your applications and programs work correctly. Once testing is completed, we can determine whether to move forward for the rest of the business. Some training of your staff may be required as the look and feel is somewhat different than Windows 7. Once it has been determined to upgrade all of the machines, we can schedule this to be done over the weekend or during off hours. This service is included for our Managed IT Service clients.
