Microsoft Windows 7 will no longer be supported by Microsoft from January 14th 2020.

Windows 7 will continue to start and run but business customers will no longer receive updates or support. 

What does this mean?

Windows 7 will continue to start and run, but business customers will no longer receive updates or support which means exposure and higher level of risk as they remain in circulation.

How does this affect me?

You currently have Windows 7 being used in your Company. These will need to be replaced in order for you to get continued Microsoft & Sync IT Support. It is important that you migrate to a current supported operating system such as Windows 10 so you can receive security updates to help protect your devices from security breaches and malicious attacks.

What can I do to keep up to date?

You will need to replace all Windows 7 PC’s to Windows 10 PC’s. You can do this in batches (e.g. replace 2 at a time/2 per month) or all at once, depending on your circumstances/budget.

How can Sync IT help me?

We will give you a very competitive quote and refresh plan to replace (we can buy in bulk which will allow us to offer best prices). See below our recommended bundles.

What happens if I don’t replace my Windows & PC’s?

You will no longer receive updates or support – making you a Security Risk! As this conflicts with Sync IT’s ethos, we will not be able to support any of the Windows 7 PC’s after this date.

“New devices are expensive. It’s cheaper for me to just keep what I have.”

All PC’s that are more than 4 years old cost you more than you realise in performance, maintenance and repair.

“I’m worried that my apps and peripheral won’t work on a modern desktop.

Good news – 99% of Windows 7 apps are compatible with Windows 10. A modern desktop builds on your current network and works with it. That said an initial verification is required.

“I know a new device will be faster, but does that really make much of a difference?”

The best part of new devices is that your employees can multitask twice as fast with a new PC than with 4 year old PC with a 4 year old PC. A modern desktop running on a new device has up to 80% better performance compared to Windows running on a 4 year old device. (Slowness/Downtime can lose you 48hrs of work time).
