Setting up and running a business can be overwhelming, sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. Ditto for technology. Not a day goes by without the release of some new gadget that can seem expensive and pointless. Learning to use the right tech for your business can be invaluable. We’ve weeded out the wheat from the chaff, so you don’t need to. Just read on for our top devices picks to bring your business into 2021 and have it reaching for success.
1. A Smart Printer
Printers are a staple in any office but are your printer living up to all your needs? The latest devices on the market offer are so much more than the plain old print function. Take a look at cloud printers, with online storage and multiple scanning options to bring your business into the 21st century.
2. An Airbar
Airbars are awesome little devices that can be plugged into your laptop to make it a touchscreen. Think of how impressive your presentations will be. One flick of your finger and you can scroll through your documents without having to rely on a mouse or touchpad.
3. A Phone Sanitizer
In this age of Covid 19, a clean and secure workspace is of paramount importance. Your business is only as good as its staff and their health is vital to your success. Just pop our phone into this nifty little gadget and it will remove a whole host of germs living on your cell.
4. A Tablet (Or Two)
A good tablet has become essential to any business. A great substitute for occasions where you don’t want to lug around your laptop, tablets are equipped with enough tech to get the job done. If your business has a retail element, you can use your tablet to play music, build your social media following, and even as a till!
5. An Ergonomic Keyboard
Give your wrists some TLC with an ergonomic keyboard. Designed to offer maximum comfort and reduce any desk-related injuries, a good keyboard will give you support. The better your physical health (repetitive strain injuries are no fun!) the more time you have to focus on running your business and increasing its success.
6. Dual Monitors
It’s no secret that two screens will help you become more organized and work faster. Opt for a dual monitor to help you stay switched on and boost your productivity. Your business’s wellbeing depends on you, so do yourself a favor and start on the right foot by ticking off this easy win!
7. A Webcam
With video meetings now the norm, a good quality webcam is crucial. If you want to be taken seriously, an old, blurry cam just won’t cut the mustard. Instead, look for a camera that has a wide view lens, low-light performance, autofocus, and high sound/microphone quality. If possible, go for a plug-in-and-play model which will mean you can use it on any laptop or computer without having to download software – perfect for those last-minute meetings!
