Technology has become such an integral part of our everyday lives that it’s often all too easy to underestimate the impact that it’s had on wider society. While we chat on social media and play photo-realistic games, it can often be a surprise when we consider the changes to the world. Amazingly, a lot of the process and tech improvements that we take for granted are also used to improve our lives in ways that we rarely even comprehend, and certainly give only fleeting thought to. Without you even realising it, technology has impacted almost every area of our day to day existence, improving and streamlining everything that we do, giving us unparalleled privileges that previous generations would have considered sci-fi madness. Here then are two unique ways that technology has improved the world in ways that you might not have registered.
Setting up a Facebook Event Page is probably the most noticeable way that technology has made organising events easier. From wedding days to holiday plans, social media and instant communication have made planning anything with your friends and social circles easier than ever before. It does go further than that, though. While calendars, diaries and personal phone books filled with hand-written numbers used to be the norm, everything can now be done on the little computer in your pocket. The mobile phone has transformed the world and made it easier than ever to stay in touch at all times, record and share our experiences, and, of course, provided a place to store every phone number and contact option for friends, family, and the businesses that we use. The smartphone has also helped us as customers and as businesses, allowing us to easily contact businesses, taking away the corporate front from companies, making them seemingly more human.
Finding a product in a brick and mortar store used to be a matter of physically entering and browsing. If the stock wasn’t available, then you either trekked to the next shop or made an order which might take months to arrive. Nowadays, businesses use a wide variety of software and hardware to ensure that products can be bought and paid for by customers as and when they need it, and usually online, through the internet. Using SAP streamlining processes has ensured that any business that takes advantage of the benefits streamlining offers when it comes to making sure that stock lead times are accurately managed before the customers looks elsewhere. With companies like weaveability.com providing tailored services to businesses hoping to take advantage of the benefits of streamlining SAP e-commerce, the potential is now available to every business running SAP ERP that provides a product or service. This has meant that we are now better informed of realistic lead times for stock. That commitment to customer service has improved the shopping experience for everyone.
A digitally connected world is a fast-paced world, and it can be hard to keep up with all of the changes as they happen. As businesses make more and more use of the technology available and as we integrate tech seamlessly into our lives, the future doesn’t seem so very far away.
