Communication and IT Equipment for Starting a New Business

In the age of digital communication you cannot operate a business without the right Communication and IT tools.  

Regardless of size, you will definitely need some, if not all of the following. Since we all need to communicate with our customers, the tools we use should be based on the target audience and the channel of communication which would work better for that audience. These are the main communication channles:


  • Telephone land line
  • Mobile Smartphone
  • Broadband Internet Access
  • Laptop Computer
  • Desktop Computer
  • Printer
  • Scanner
  • Fax Machine
  • Website (see getting a web site article)

Now you may not require some of the items on the list such as a fax machine, since these days the fax is used less, with email and scanning of documents becoming more common place. Some businesses may still need this if your customers and suppliers require information to be faxed and do not have access to some of the other communication tools.
