As technology has advanced throughout the decades, different fields of business and commerce have found novel, inventive ways to use technology to boost productivity. Here are a few modern innovations that your business might use to stay ahead of the competition.
Voice over IP or VoIP phones can improve communication efficiency by allowing users to make phone calls through IP networks such as the Internet rather than traditional office telephone systems. This results in more reliable call quality, lower operating costs, and efficient scalability. Javier Loya, CEO of OTC Global Holdings says, “At OTC Global Holdings, VoIP phones have completely revamped our communication practices. It’s been more convenient to scale using the Internet-based VoIP system rather than building a new communication infrastructure.”
Communal messaging platforms such as Slack have been able to meet the needs of businesses better than traditional forms of communication or social media websites. Slack is designed to keep office communication organized by topic, group, or content. The app even allows you to search for content in previous conversations so that no one forgets important information pertaining to your office projects. The app’s user-friendly and collaborative interface has become widely used by many major companies such as Target and iRobot.
In offices where multitasking on multiple devices is the norm, multi-device keyboards are a revolutionary piece of technology. These devices allow you to seamlessly switch between typing on your phone, tablet, and computer during busy workdays. Some of the best multi-device keyboard models such as the Logitech K780 are compatible with up to three devices.
