This allows employees to quickly manage their communication and other technological benefits without losing productivity.

(Aspect 3)2. Technology in the workplace also increases how many employees a business can have working. This is made possible by possibility to spread the word about openings in job positions. Not only that, but it also allows for the business to assess the potential candidates through tests that can be taken online.

(Aspect 3)3. A major advantage of technology in the workplace is the efficiency boost. It makes the work flow process much more streamlined and connected. This is shown through the speed of finding or sending documents, that would have originally had to be physically found.

Tyler McBride's comment, March 3, 2014 11:11 AM
4. The software on the devices is also bringing in a profit. Ad revenue is huge and brings in $9 billion, from people using free software with ads. There is a bigger profit made from software being sold, which has a very low distribution cost.
