With more and better, faster, cheaper options available daily, the technology available to increase efficiency and profitability is truly mind-boggling. Remember, the iPhone is only 10 years old yet it has transformed culture around the world.
A state-of-the-art mainframe computer costing over a million dollars in 1965 and requiring special air conditioning and power, is now carried in your pocket or purse - and has processing speeds exceeding 1,000 times the 50 year old mainframe computer.

They are experts are running their business, but they are likely not experts at technology. Today's guest, Justin Plaza, has a solution.
