Spring is right around the corner and that means spring cleaning.  Take a look at your website:

Need any assistance with answering any of these questions.  Email us at support@sephone.com or call us at (207) 262-5040

Facebook loves LIVE – maybe you should too?

February 17, 2017

Even though Facebook LIVE was launched last April , it may not be something you have used yet.  But it seems that everyday someone you know is using it and perhaps it is someone or a business that you may have least expected.  Facebook loves LIVE, it gives it a favorable placement in the news feed.  If you are a business struggling with being seen in the News Feed without a steady stream of paid Facebook Ads, perhaps Facebook Live is for you.

Go GREEN with US!

February 10, 2017

Every day Sephone provides custom tools to our clients to improve their efficiency. When the client is able to save time and/or money, it gets passed on in improvements in service to customers and employees. Now it is time to practice what we preach in our own processes. As an added benefit we can be nicer to the environment. This simplifies some routine processes, so we are moving toward implementing a paperless billing process that will become effective May 1, 2017. read more

Showcasing Your Work

February 3, 2017

Sephone PortfolioBeing a company that provides a custom solution to each of it’s clients unique needs and wants it’s difficult for us to hand you your custom solution to test drive. In this instance, the website isn’t built yet. Unlike purchasing an automobile, which is already built, you have the opportunity to test drive it and evaluate it before committing to the purchase.

That is why we have a portfolio showcasing a sample of our work from a wide array of our clients. This will provide you with a sense of our capabilities and quality of work. On our portfolio you can click on any one of the images and view additional screen shots. Some projects may even have a video or additional information. You can visit the websites and download the apps and interact with them.

Making the web more secure

January 27, 2017

We talk a lot about security here in our blog, but we can’t stress it enough.  Online security is such a huge talking point now as more and more things that we use on a daily basis are connected to the internet.  For sometime now Google, and other browser providers, have been making a push to make the web a more secure place.  Well, here comes a big change to that effect.

Coming this month (January 2017), with the release of Google Chrome 56, any website that has a password field or collects credit card information, and is not protected with an Secure Socket Layer (SSL) already, will be flagged by Google as insecure.

‘Phish’-y Emails

January 20, 2017

Perhaps you’ve seen the notice floating around Facebook or on the news: a new phishing scam that mimics the appearance of Google. By tricking users into opening a fake Google Drive attachment in the email, the scam actually redirects them to a compromised Google Login form. So far, the tactic has been quite successful at siphoning a decent amount of login information.
