The reality of modern life is that the vast majority of society loves technology and social gadgetry. Even my retired parents own an iPad, know how to Skype and Face Time their geographically spread family. Social media (love it or loath it) plays a significant role in how people communicate. We all pay attention when the news reel presents the latest gadget set to bring something new to your life.
Life in the workplace is no different. The surge towards a paperless office continues to pick up pace with the enhancements of online document management systems such as SharePoint. Fewer man days are lost to travel with the impressive powers of video conferencing enabled by video audio technology and vast broadband back haul networks. And how could I summarise the modern worker without mentioning that almost everyone is provided a smartphone of some description to enable further remote working, instant messaging colleagues and photographs of meeting room wallboards. Technology consumes and facilitates an efficient working day if used in the correct way. It is for these reasons and many more that ecards are a perfect fit for the modern business professional.
So what are the latest gadgets entering the workplace?
