Some of us can still fondly remember the days when office technology meant an electric typewriter and a multi-line phone. Today, the large number of technology based solutions for the workspace is almost mind-boggling. Taking the time to understand how some of today’s hottest technologies, like tablets, can be used to create a more effective work space, will improve your productivity and give you some fun new ‘toys’ at the same time.
Remember, today’s most effective offices have an understanding of the mobile nature of business today. They integrate technologies that allow employees to operate effectively no matter where they are. Once, remote access programs were the pinnacle of telecommunication, but today, the best offices utilize tablets, smartphones, and other pieces of office space technology to make the office truly mobile. Consider including tablet computers in your office space design.
Equally important are communication tools like smartphones. Including some of latest smartphones in an office plan can be effective on several fronts. First, they are often less expensive than traditional phone service in an office space. Second, today’s smartphones are powerful computers in their own right and are a great way to increase productivity.
However you plan your office space, remember the role that technology can play in your productivity. In order to be truly effective, your office simply must include tablets, and a smart phone. These two tools should be the basis of every office technology plan – they are fun too! The days of the electric typewriter are long gone!
