What Business Leaders Are Telling Us


July 9, 2021

What are Business Owners Saying about Post Pandemic Productivity? Take a Look at our Latest Survey Results.

Each quarter Integris surveys business leaders on the issues that shape their business. What’s on their mind as they come out of the pandemic, and back to normal business operations?

Clearly, leaders are ready to get back to business. Every respondent of our survey rated “finding new employees” as their top concern. But here’s the other concern that jumped out at us. Very few of our survey respondents said they had invested in two factor authentication logins. If you haven’t invested in log-in practices that verify your employee’s identity, now’s the time. Hacking around log ins have never been higher. And if your business is growing, the risk only grows with you.

It’s exciting times for our customers. Let’s make sure your IT networking strategy can keep up with the change.

Check out these other customer insights:

Q. What is your biggest business challenge right now? A. Finding new employees

Q. What equipment does your business most rely on? A. PCs, Laptops, Tablets, Smart Phones, and Security Systems.

Q. What’s your biggest IT compliance worry? A. HIPPA

Q. Is your business working in the cloud, or on premise, primarily? A. The answers here were split, so definitely, a mix of both.

Q. Is your company currently using business identity management and log-in restrictions? A. No.

Q. Is your business growing? A. Yes.

Q. Are you handling your IT entirely through managed services, or co-managing with internal staff? A. Managed Services.
