The world of conducting business is not what it was a decade ago. Even in the past few years, technology has evolved exponentially, and the degree of productivity these now common technologies enable was previously unheard of. These are three of the most common – and effective – online time-savers.
At this point, regular email has become of an old warhorse of online technology. In fact, for most people it is difficult to remember a time before email existed. However, the email revolution facilitated a way to send written messages anywhere in the world instantly without the use of any kind of postal or messenger service, or even a fax machine. Email is what eventually led to more advanced instant message technologies.
Business Message Boards
Online message boards or forums are widely used for non-business conversations across the web. However, message board technology is also widely used to hold multi-person conversations in the business world, and these forums often make for a quick and effective way to tune into the latest news and talking points on a wide range of business issues.
When it comes to conversing online, there are few ways more convenient and effective than instant messaging. Messaging technology on both computers and smartphones have revolutionized the world of technology, and the business and personal communication worlds will never be the same again.
