Office Upgrades For The Tech Savvy

office

In 2016, there are a lot of people working from home and their number is on a steady rise. The only reason why the majority of businesses still insist on working in an office is because, with the right management, it can significantly boost productivity. In the past, office managers tried to achieve this boost by upgrading things like seating order or stimulating their employees with the right wall color. Even if some of these methods did give results, most of the time they were barely noticeable. Today, however, a massive boost in office productivity can be achieved by appealing to your tech savvy employees and equipping your workspace with the latest technology trends.

Office Upgrades For The Tech Savvy

Don’t Let the Wires Show

Another issue you need to think about is the neatness of the office. It is a known fact that people find it harder to organize in a messy environment. This is why most offices insist on having a reliable cleaning service to deal with all the clutter and the trash lying around. Unfortunately, tons of tech that every modern company relies on also means a bunch of cables lying everywhere around. In a recent conversation with people from Universal Home Theatre, it came to our attention that even the most aesthetically pleasing piece of tech may appear wrong if over-cluttered with cables. The easiest way for you to prevent this is to hide them with tie bands and organize them by colors.

More Screens

People who have never worked with more than one screen have no idea what kind of advantage having two or three of them brings. If, for example, you are working on a project, but have to follow guidelines on a browser or read a document at the same time, it would be a genuine time-saver. Sure, some will argue that alt-tabbing takes only a second or two of your time, but remember that you will have to do this at least several hundred times before you are done. By the time you are done, this solution has saved you minutes and hours of work and, in this way, has also made you more productive.

Skype Communication

Most of you probably wonder why people sitting next to each other would use Skype instead of just talking. Well, the answer is quite simple – they don’t want to distract others. Some offices have dozens of people working in them, so imagine if all of them spoke at the same time (even quietly). The noise would be unbearable. Additionally, what if your coworker is on the other side of the office? Are you going to walk around every two minutes? Not much work would be done in this way. Luckily, Skype, Facebook Messenger or a desktop version of Viber can be used to fix this error. Of course, spending time on social networks is not recommended (unless you work in the field of digital marketing), but using them for office communication is truly a great idea.

Cloud Has Changed the Game

Everyone knows that the cloud has forever changed the way we store data. In just a few years, it has managed to make CD/DVD and USB drives completely outdated. Going with cloud storage also means that you will have all your electronic information in one place. In this way, all of it can be accessed by any member of your staff, provided that they have proper authorization. However, choosing the right cloud provider is never easy and there are several things you need to look out for. These are usually issues like bandwidth limitations, data encryption and the costs of these services.

Conclusion:

Even though most of these trends we also use in our private lives, the difference is not as great as when they are properly applied in the office. Here, they cause a noticeable productivity boost from day one and continue to improve it exponentially. This is truly something to please those obsessed with technology and efficiency.
