Technology affects everyone in some way. Technology has been wired in to our lives, taken over the younger generation and will continue to do so. Thanks to IT and the Internet, virtually anything you desire can be delivered to your door. Files and personal info has become far more accessible and you can find out nearly anything by typing it in to Google. Instead of losing sleep by worrying about their child, parent can now simply pick up the phone and check up on them. For some- it is impossible to imagine the world before technology.
Paperless. Going paperless is a huge step for any company. It means that files can be accessed at any time and from anywhere by anyone (who has permission to). It is a great way to collaborate with colleagues and share files with them. A great example of this is HR Software, which is a system that keeps all employee files and information all in one place. Going paperless makes your office neater and makes file finding so much faster.
Email. Email is a great form of communication, it is direct and can be either formal or the opposite. The use of email has been more than beneficial for millions of companies. A great use of email is marketing and mass communication. By using specific email software’s, you can send loads of emails with the same content but to multiple addresses, rather than the one email conversation. It is now easy for companies to communicate with other businesses, clients and customers.
WIFI. This is the biggest technology breakthrough- ever! Think about it, what on earth did we all do before wireless Internet was created? By typing in a short password you can access Internet by your phone or by using cellular data provided by your mobile phone carrier. The Internet is home to endless sources, games, information, social media and shopping. You can do so much by having access to the Internet. Having Internet in an office means being able to find out information quicker and you can easily manage your business online, and even run it this way.
Outside of business? Outside of the business world, of course technology has had a huge impact on many things. You can go on Amazon and buy a wide variety of things all in one place, as well as a majority of your favourite stores. Mobile phones and tablets are magnificent, but the new idea of smartphones and tablets has taken the world by storm. The usability of phones such as the IPhone is insane and is continuously developing. Gaming has significantly changed also, not only can you now play games via a console but you can actually find the best gaming monitor or console online. Gaming graphics are constantly developing, but so is the rest of the technology world.
