Microsoft Office Now Supports Macbook Pro Touch Bar

Posted on: Friday, February 17, 2017

In November of 2016, Terabit.ca posted about launch and success of Apple’s new feature for Macbook Pro’s: the touch bar.  Now, approximately four months later, Microsoft Office supports the use of the touch bar.

In October of 2016,  Microsoft stated the touch bar will be compatible with Microsoft Word, hence why the company released a trial version for insider members to test out the chrome_2016-10-27_19-11-32features earlier this month.  However, today, Microsoft Word launched the touch bar functionality to the public, offering secondary screen input for Microsoft programs, such as Excel, PowerPoint and Word.

When the touch bar feature is utilized in Microsoft Word, users will gain access to Word Focus mode.  This functionality will enable users to hide all toolbar features so the focus can be solely on their work.  To gain access to the necessary features on the toolbar, the touch bar can be used for all editing purposes.  Secondly, PowerPoint users will also notice some new functionalities as well.  The touch bar can be used for all graphic purposes, such as rotation and previewing thumbnails. Lastly, Microsoft’s touch bar compatibility will offer shortcuts on excel. By simply typing the equal sign (=) on excel, the touch bar will display the most recent features used, enhancing the efficiency for the user. Similarly, the touch bar will also allow access to the necessary features on the toolbar, like Microsoft Word.

Apple’s partnerships with third party applications, such as Microsoft, is not only an effective way for the touch bar functionality to gain exposure, but it also influences more users to invest in the laptop when the touch bar is compatible with numerous programs.  If you have used the Macbook Pro Touch Bar, let us know your thoughts!

How Search Engine Optimization Will Help Your Business

Posted on: Friday, February 10, 2017

Over the past few years Search Engine Optimization (SEO) has remained one of the most widely used and successful marketing strategies.  To summarize, SEO is a marketing strategy employed to generate organic search engine results in order for companies to remain competitive, maintain a web presence and generate website traffic.

Why SEO is Fundamental

In today’s culture there is a strong emphasis placed on efficiency, which means internet users are highly unlikely to click past the first page on search engines, such as Google.  Thus, SEO techniques come into play to help mitigate the risk of your company’s website being overlooked or not found within the first page of website suggestions offered by a search engine, such as Google or Yahoo!  Forbes Magazine reported, “Somewhere between 80-90% of customers now check online reviews prior to making a purchase, and this number is only expected to increase”.   Therefore, with the high percentage of customers using the internet as their main source for information, SEO has become increasingly important  in gaining leverage over competitors and increasing web traffic.

Terabit.ca builds websites from the ground up to ensure it is compatible with search engines, which in turn generates more views of your company.  Additionally, Terabit has noticed effective SEO stems from proper web development, which is why our team focuses on coding and speed optimizations that search engines will recognize.

If your company is not already taking advantage of Search Engine Optimization, you may want to think twice.  Most of web traffic is driven by search engines, such as Google, Yahoo! and Bing. While there are other techniques to generate website traffic, including social media marketing,  search engines are the most frequent tools internet users utilize.
