Unless you’re a luddite or a caveman whose mind would explode at the sight of a Spectrum ZX, the answer is a definitive no.
Every morning, your tech-filled office will make you feel like James Bond, instead of a middle manager from Woking, and that brief moment of excitability could result in increased productivity.
That’s right – while the latest in technological advancements will cost you a pretty penny, that investment could lead to long-term profit.
What’s more, businesses willing to engage with hi-tech thingamajigs will show themselves to be forward thinking and future-savvy. And clients love a company that isn’t frightened of whatever the future throws at them.
But what should you invest in to boost the fortunes of your company and show that you’re embracing the Buck Rogers world with both hands?
To give you a helping hand, we’ve put together this list of business-friendly tech. Take a look and see which of these products could send your company into the stratosphere.
The payroll is a real drudge for every SME, the business equivalent of scraping your nails on a blackboard.
If you’re sorting out your payroll manually, you’ll likely waste days cataloguing employee paycheques, double-checking your figures, tracking overtime and subtracting sick days.
Sounds exhausting, doesn’t it?
Enter SD Worx, an automated payroll software tool that calculates your monthly payroll automatically and with minimal supervision.
The real cash-saving benefit here is that you’ll be able to downsize your HR department, reducing your outgoings in the process.
SD Worx uses the Cloud, so you’ll be able to keep track of your payroll no matter where you are in the world. It’s tech’s solution to working in a global world.
And speaking of the Cloud…
In the bad old days, ad hoc work was more hassle than it was worth. Even with Skype and email, accessing your workload from home would require seemingly endless communications with your team, costing you hours of productivity.
Let’s thank our lucky stars for Cloud computing, which allows you to access documents from a ‘virtual hard drive’ located online.
Not only has the Cloud made working on the go easier, it’s also made group-editing of documents significantly simpler.
There are downsides to the tech – you’ll have no excuse for skiving during a long train journey – but investing in high quality Cloud software is ideal for a workplace plagued by meetings in far flung areas.
The possibilities of augmented reality are as yet unknown for an office environment but here are a few:
- You could give clients virtual tours of as-yet unbuilt properties
- You’ll be able to spice up your presentations with a virtual headset
Those are only two dream scenarios, and they’re the tip of the tech iceberg. Invest in augmented reality to see how it affects your business practices.
