Technology is the backbone of businesses throughout the United States and the world. Computers, software, wireless devices and Internet-based tools such as cloud-based storage and virtual meeting applications are helping businesses move at lightning speed. Technology helps small businesses compete with large businesses by making them able to respond to changes in the marketplace at a much quicker rate. In addition, technology can increase employee productivity and efficiency, which can greatly benefit the bottom line of any business.
What can technology do for your business?
As mentioned above, technology offers several key operational benefits. But that’s just the start. Technology can help your small business remain up-to-date and be perceived as forward thinking. Your customers and vendors will appreciate the technological advances you add to your company because it will ultimately benefit them. Things such as order fulfillment and tracking, shipping, turnaround time and communication can be greatly enhanced and improved with the right technology equipment. This helps provide a positive brand experience for today’s most demanding customers and vendor partners.
Technology eliminates barriers
Remember the days when you had to catch a plane in order to make client presentations or meet with companies who might want to sell your product or service? Well, thanks to today’s advances in web-based technology, it is now possible to conduct important meetings without ever leaving your office. Real-time webinar meetings pack the same power as in-person meetings, and they allow you to save time and money in the process. If you’re a small business owner, this is great news, especially if you can’t afford to be out of the office for a few days.
Technology helps reduce business expenses

Technology will continue to evolve and present even greater opportunities for businesses to achieve short and long-term success. Business owners that embrace these advances are better poised for growth and increased market share.…
For consumers concerned with vehicle safety, 2012 is a great year.
One topic that is becoming increasingly important in the United States, is reducing the danger associated with distracted driving by integrating new and improved technology.
Several key features are being introduced in 2012, many of which are becoming industry standards, that were aimed directly at keeping the driver focused on operating the vehicle instead of performing other tasks that contribute to distraction on the road.
Technology is at the forefront of helping to solve this issue both in the United States and throughout the world.
Among the specific points of interest are voice-recognition systems, lane-drifting prevention measures, and warning systems that give fatigued or distracted drivers an alert when there is a potential collision.
Effectively, the goal is to make drivers better behind the wheel.
Manufacturers such as Kia don’t believe that safety should be compromised because of price and is offering its primary safety features standard on all models in 2012. There also seems to be an awareness that the more drivers take their eyes off the road, the greater the danger of an accident.
One of the remedies is the use of features that put critical information directly in front of the driver without sacrificing visibility. BMW is using a head-up display, or HUD, in order to ensure that drivers are not diverting their attention away from the driving task. The HUD displays information such as vehicle speed, weather conditions, and navigation information. This is the same technology seen in military aircraft.
Dodge has integrated some of the features of its navigation system, namely turn-by-turn directions, into the primary control panel of the vehicle to avoid the need to look to the side and downward, away from the road.
With the consensus that change is needed in the industry, it is clear that companies are proactive with respect to sharing the important message of driving safety. There are clearly preventable accidents that technology may be able to stop from happening if these features are utilized and become more widespread.
The 2012 Washington Auto Show was a great forum for progress, and the future looks promising for even more advances in automobile safety moving forward.…
