Three Ways Technology Has Changed How We Work

by Kristen White Blogger
Technology is designed to make life easier whether it is shopping online or making a doctor’s appointment on the virtual calendar. These advances have also benefited companies across multiple industries by making it possible to change how business is done more effectively and affordably.  

Where paper used to be the ‘king’ there are now computers, laptops and email in use. Documents can be quickly typed up and sent or displayed on monitors for meetings coordinated through online sites that specialize in bringing groups together for discussion. People don’t have to be in the same room to get the job done especially when it comes to administrative and other specific functions.

A virtual administrative assistant is the perfect example of the new way of doing business as this professional takes care of the client’s needs and company tasks from their private office at home. All that is needed is a computer, phone and internet connection with the applicable business software and customers will never know that when they call the company line, they are talking to someone who may be working across the world. Technology has made it possible for companies to look for the most qualified individual instead of being limited to local options only. Remote work is becoming more popular every day as industries are looking for opportunities to transition positions away from on-site to virtual.

One of the primary reasons is cost savings whether the business is just starting out or has been around for a while and is a large corporation. When individuals are working from home then they are not taking up company real estate or utilities so the business can grow as much as they want without necessarily having to move to a different location. Also, by using a vendor that specializes in virtual employees, the business is only paying a fee instead of a salary plus benefits and vacation time which also saves money in the budget. The agency is responsible for hiring, vetting and finding the right candidate to match the client’s needs and confirming that the individual has the necessary skill set and equipment to get the job done. Customers can call into the office to schedule appointments, ask questions or request information and the assistant can handle everything without being in the office. They also manage schedules, take care of travel plans, update websites, create documents and organize meetings which are all tasks that can be done from a computer. 

In addition to the cost savings and wider resource options, companies can hire individuals who are looking for a work/life balance which makes them satisfied workers. This ensures that they are more productive and deliver quality results because they are able to work in a format that benefits their lifestyle and personal needs. Whether you need a real estate virtual assistant or an off-site legal administrator there is a professional available that is certified and trained to work in your industry. Go online and find the top firms that specialize in this personnel need and see how your company can benefit from the expertise of hiring the most qualified employee without having to pay full-time salary or find a desk for them to sit at. Technological enhancements allow people to talk across the globe, hold face-to-face meetings long distance and electronically sign documentation so make sure your business is on the front line leading the movement.
