Ways to reduce the cost of office computing.
Ideas on lowering the cost of using computers in the office.
Technology such as laptops and PCs have long been an integral part of working in an office. However, with the cost of running a business increasing at a steady rate it might be worth looking at a few ways of reducing the costs. With that in mind here are a few tips on lowering the costs associated with using technology in the workplace.
Firstly, you could consider allowing employees to use their own laptops or computers from home. This would instantly reduce the amount of money that you had to spend on purchasing the machines in the first place. It would also mean that you would most likely avoid the cost of buying the relevant software for each machine.
Secondly, it might be an idea to suggest employees work from home on certain days of the week. This could reduce the amount of money that you spend on your monthly electricity bills and subsequently save your business a substantial amount of cash. This will also reduce the amount of money employees have to spend on fuel or commuting and will lower your company’s overall effect on the environment.
Lastly, consider using tablet computers in the workplace rather than PCs. A great deal of companies use PCs that require plugging in all day and are often far too powerful for the tasks they are being used for. A tablet computer such as an iPad can be used to take notes, access the internet and create spreadsheets (amongst other common office tasks) and doesn’t require a constant power source.
