It can sometimes be difficult to keep up with the everchanging technology, especially if you run your own business. There’s far too much paperwork to be doing and no time to spend researching technology trends. Luckily for you, we’ve saved you a lot of time, by digging out the latest awesome technology that will help your business grow.
Cut Price Tablets
If you don’t have a tablet yet there’s probably only one reason; it’s too expensive. Some tablets are certainly pricey and cost more than buying a laptop, which is certainly an expense most businesses don’t need. However, Windows have started to push some of their Windows 8.1 tablets and have cut the price dramatically. Dell, Lenovo and Toshiba tablets have all been reduced in price recently, some to less than £100. This is the perfect time to invest in a tablet for your business, with prices unlikely to stay that low forever. These tablets have nothing wrong with them; they work as well (if not better) than some of their competitors and will sync nicely with your Windows 8 computer, so don’t be put off by their cheap price.
New Sign Technology
Technological advancements are happening in every industry, and this is one that caught our eye. If you use signage in your business, whether at the front of your shop, on your work vehicle or at exhibition events, then you’ll be pleased to know things are improving. Prices are getting better, and the quality is coming on in leaps and bounds, plus there are so many more different signage types to chose from. Branding is vital if you want to grow your business and signs are a great, cost-effective way to spread that brand name.
Sign suppliers such as Kent Specialists, IVC, are adopting these changes and the businesses the work with are reaping the benefits. The next time you look into sign suppliers for your company ensure they are using the latest technologies.
Solar Powered MacBook
Okay, so this one technically isn’t out yet, but we had to include it seeing as Apple have just received a patent for their solar powered laptop. Perfect for eco-friendly and cost cutting businesses, a solar powered MacBook could be a game changer. The patent was approved just this week, so it could be a while before we see the finished product, but experts have already been speculating on what it would look and function like. It is thought that the lid would be made from smart glass, which can either block or let light through, solar panels and Photovoltaic cells to power the computer. This would be an incredible advancement in the technological world and would certainly set your business apart from competitors. Now we just need to find out when it’s going to be released!
Some of the latest and greatest technological advancements, in just the first month of 2014! We can’t wait to see what’s coming next this year, but for now, give your business a boost with some of our ideas.
