Take a moment to think about how much technology has impacted you in just the last year.
Put simply, our lives have been overtaken by technology and our Wi-Fi-enabled gadgets have changed the way we do everything.
Our offices would be unrecognisable to past workers thanks to the proliferation of technology. Meanwhile, more and more of our personal time is influenced by our gadgets with each passing day.
If you are a Millennial and reading this you’re wondering what all the fuss is about? Millennials are the ones who are changing the way relationships are forged, and the way in which they do business is driving software and app development. The novelty of being constantly ‘connected’ may be wearing thin for some, but the next wave of Australians have no such fears. Technology has created a generation who know everything about anything, because knowledge is instant to all.
Business doesn’t happen face to face as often as some would like. Instead, today’s communication depends on conference calls and email chains that make it challenging to get to know your clients and co-workers. With so many workers now working in virtual teams, many business relationships depend on technology, and that’s not a bad thing−as long as they’re using the right technologies in the right ways.
A major report cited by British newspaper The Telegraph found that technology in the workplace has led to an 84% increase in productivity per hour for office workers since the 1970s.
So have we reached peak technology? Hardly.
Technology is an enabler
Technology is supposed to make our lives easier, and in the main it does.
Every software application and cloud-based something or other is designed to do things easier, better, more efficiently. Even our market-leading technology sourceit, which was initially developed by Finsbury Green, has become a global brand in its own right and is now used in markets as far afield as the US, and Canada.
If you’ve not yet heard about sourceit, we invite you to take some time to investigate how it can simplify and standardise the entire sourcing workflow with unprecedented transparency and ease of use.
Because one thing is for certain − sourceit will genuinely make one part of your working life much easier.
