Every business uses some kind of technology, even your everyday plumber will use a computer to sort out the accounts. Technology is constantly changing and it can be challenging to keep up it sometimes, but it is essential that if you want to grow your business that you grow with the technology.
Computers are vital to both large and small businesses, a computer is needed for a variety of things including bookkeeping, generating reports and much more. Not only does it help in this way it has also changed that way that we communicate with people and the rest of the world. Before this we would be sat around communicating with each other, we also has the radio which opened up for people being able to hear different stories from around the world which was also helped when the TV was released for us to be able to see pictures from around the world. Computers also came along to replace typewriters, then in the 80s emails and the internet came into the workplace and in 1993 the World Wide Web was born and changed business as well as everything else.
Technology Moving Forward
Technology affects almost every aspect of our lives, just think about it, virtually anything can be delivered to your doormat in a matter of days. There are even apps that can be used in business to help you organise meetings, bill customers and help with paperwork. There are so many different products to choose from including;
They look like a normal laptop and can be used for drafting documents or working on a spreadsheet, but they also have the great plus of being able to convert into a tablet or even stand with the screen upright. This is a great advantage for when it comes to meetings, being able to flip the screen to show everyone a presentation or product that they need to be aware of. They also come with a touch screen so once the screen has been flipped you can use the touch screen to navigate around. We also have a brand new design which is totally different a touch tablet, but when you need to use the keyboard you slide the screen back and up. The keyboard is at the front of the underlying dock so this gives it the functionality to be both a tablet and a keyboard without having to attach a keyboard separately.
Now I know what you’re thinking this is old school, but even your boing old desktop has had a re-vamp. The newest versions are a lot like the laptops now just with a bigger screen, they now come with a touch screen ability, you move the screen so it lays like a table and you can present to people standing around the screen, they also have the ability to be detached. Just like the convertible laptops desktops will now be able to be removed and used like a large tablet for meetings and presentations.
Touch Screen Laptops
Touch screen laptops are a great way to navigate around the laptop really quickly. They also offer long battery life so you can read through a document and make changes without being plugged in. They are designed for everyday multitasking for practical use in the work place but then can also be used on a personal level for entertainment.
You need to make sure that as a business large or small that you are keeping an eye on how technology is moving and changing. Effective communication is the difference between success and failure in business today and that technology is the key to achieving this objective.
