Make The Most Of Tech Devices

Staten Island commercial bank shares tips to protect, extend, conserve products


STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. – Businesses all across the Island have an array of technology, and it pays to instill ways to let the devices last longer.


Victory State Bank, Staten Island's only community-based business bank, offers a reminder that many steps are rather simple and often are overlooked.

For example, a well-known technology company points out that sensitive electronic devices can be intricate, and when they are taken to and from work or on business travel, protecting them makes a lot of sense.

“Not every accident is avoidable,” the company Casio says.

Its advice: “Take better care of these fragile items by purchasing well-fitted, hard cover cases for each.”

Ahead of a business trip, “Know in advance the best way to protect your products in the event of water immersion and other common hazards.” A good place to learn more, it says, is the instruction manual for each device.

Don't ignore the advice to register a product after purchasing it, Casio says. It offers quick online registration for its calculators, digital pianos, projectors and watches.

Registered consumers receive an extended warranty on selected Casio models so “your electronics are covered even if something goes wrong.”

Reading the customer manual will let an owner become better acquainted with the device and get maximum use from it, the company says.

“You'll be able to better troubleshoot issues as they arise and gain insights into customizing your device to suit your needs.

As an example, a user can set up a tablet to connect automatically to a Wi-Fi network when it's in range, so this can conserve use of cellular data.

“Additionally, you can create shortcut icons to access the apps you use most frequently, as well as customize screen brightness to reduce your battery use,” Casio says.

For calculators, it notes, reading the manual may even help you with job assignments, as these resources often contain examples of common math problems and how to use the calculator to solve them.

“Don't just buy the best gear; make sure you're getting the most you can out of your technology,” the company advises.

A president's message at the website says, “Casio products support the intellectual creative activities of people in many facets of their lives” and that “Human intellectual creative activities will continue to expand into new areas.”
