Technology has come a very long way in the past decade. This has brought many new advances that have allowed workplaces to upgrade and improve the way they operate. That’s why, today, many businesses are always on the lookout for the latest tech products that can help them and their employees to carry out tasks ever more quickly and efficiently.
Here we take a look at some of the best handy tech products that you can purchase for your business.
These may not seem like very high-tech products, but they can really be a lifesaver in workplaces where there are a lot of cables lying around. It can be stressful (and dangerous) working in an environment with cables everywhere and, with the rapid adoption of digital technologies, most businesses these days are packed with electronic items that need to be plugged in.
Cable organisers are a cost-effective way to tidy up all the loose cords and cables around a space. They improve health and safety by reducing the likelihood of trip hazards and also give your business a much tidier, more professional look.
As stated above, there has been a huge increase in the number of electronic equipment in workplaces. And that means a lot more batteries to charge.
When an employee’s tasks are primarily based around working on a laptop or desktop computer, it’s important for you as an employer to provide the means to keep the equipment charged and ready for use.
An easy way to do this is by installing charging lockers around your workplace. These provide safety, as each locker can be secured when in use to prevent theft or tampering. This can also be of use if the devices hold sensitive data that only authorised personnel should be able to access.
There are two types of charging lockers that you can choose from, depending on how your business functions:
- Individually locked compartments are the best choice when you need to provide a separate and private charging space for each member of staff or;
- A single door to access all charging stations. This option may be better suited to a more open business situation in which everyone is freely able to use any laptop to carry out their tasks.
Standing desks are all the rage right now, thanks to their helpful health benefits. If your business is an office-based environment, then many members of staff may not have the opportunity to walk around or move a lot throughout the day. This can lead to poor posture, as well as body aches caused by sitting down for too long.
A standing desk can help alleviate these problems by allowing workers to increase their blood circulation and exercise their muscles while working. If your budget doesn’t allow for a whole new set of desks for your business, you can always consider purchasing a standing desk converter.
Running a business can be non-stop. With constant meetings, conferences and places to be, it can be stressful remembering what event is on which day. The ideal solution to this problem is a wall calendar.
Although calendars have been around for a long time they too, however, have advanced with technology. Modern calendars sync with your phone or laptop and display calls and events to make sure your co-workers don’t interrupt you while you’re busy. You can install one on a wall outside your office, or near your desk to designate your workspace.
USB docking station
If you regularly take your laptop home to finish off tasks a USB docking station may be very useful to leave at your desk. This is because it allows you to easily plug your laptop into your workstation and makes the transfer of documents and information a breeze.
A docking station also means you can connect many other tech products to your laptop, such as a primer, a wireless mouse or keyboard, or even headphones, without cluttering your desk space. This not only gives your work zone a clean look but also solves the problem of never having enough USB ports to plug all your gadgets in.
