How often do you wish there were more hours in a day? You’re not alone. It can prove difficult to maintain your workload, especially in a growing business when that load is only getting heavier. With so much new technology to choose from, you may be at a loss. It takes time to implement and integrate new technology and software, so if they don’t work for you, that’s time and money wasted.
Smart Office Tech
Computers and printers revolutionized the business world, allowing more to be done in the same amount of time when compared to decade past. Consider how much faster it is to write an article using a computer and a keyboard than with pen and paper! Of course, not all technology is created equal. Computers and printers in an office are no longer impressive. Innovative office tech is smarter, faster and enables employees to do more in less time. Click To Tweet
Use Cloud Sharing
Cloud storage and sharing have become a crucial part of the modern workplace. It allows employees to access, edit and share documents and data from anywhere with an internet connection. This makes remote work easy and enables on-the-go changes. You may still opt to have a data center on-site, but the cloud is ideal for frequently used forms and group documents that must be edited in real-time by more than 1 employee.
With the right document management software, you can easily print from your smartphone, from almost anywhere. You can scan, share and save all from your printer, eliminating the additional steps required by older printers. Document management solutions eliminate waste and space associated with storing vast amounts of paperwork.
Standing desks have recently become wildly popular, and for good reason. They are shown to increase productivity and decrease the number of physical ailments associated with desk work (back pain, soreness, etc.).
The days of slow, outdated black and white printers are gone. With a multifunction printer (MFP) you can do so much more than print documents. Produce high-quality graphics and polished marketing materials, and quickly scan and save documents from the printer with a few clicks of a button.
How do you know if your employees are as productive as you need them to be? Is success really something that can be quantified? Well, yes. Analytics are a powerful tool to have in your arsenal. In essences, analytics are feedback, providing immediate data on office efficiency, and shining a light on areas that could use improvement. Printing analytics show who’s printing the most, which machines are used more frequently and how much waste is occurring. Marketing analytics give feedback to show which marketing campaigns are profitable and which need to be altered. This invaluable data can be used to motivate employees to reach goals faster, with real-time data driving them.
