Hi. I’m Devon. For the past 5 years I have been heavily involved in creating a new youth and community centre in Scarborough, UK (home). Last year, I began working for an organisation called Seachange who support social enterprises and charities in our area.
Whilst being part of this project and working for Seachange I have been able to see how organisations use technology in their workplace. It seems a shame that in today’s world, where technology is so easily accessible and affordable, businesses are still left “in the dark” when it comes to using it successfully.
I was quite shocked when I first found out about the neglect of certain technologies at work. Most notably social media. Which, over the past decade has become very user friendly and also a big benefit to businesses.
Being young, I was always the go-to-guy for anything that came with a user manual. That’s not to say I actually read them but I’m naturally inquisitive of anything new.
Through talking to the people at these businesses I found a problem that many of them shared: getting help costs – a lot! So I began to think of ways I could help organizations whilst giving them the skills to do it themselves.
That’s where ProTelp comes in!
With this site I aim to:
- Reach as many UK and International small businesses, organisations and charities as possible.
- Provide easy to understand and informative articles on technology in the workplace.
- Give businesses a voice about what they really need help with. Not what big IT companies tell them.
