A troubling report: 5 minutes is crippling your business
Huffington Post gets it....technology issues are costing businesses millions per year:
The average employee attends about 62 meetings a month. Yet, the first five minutes of each business meeting, or about five hours per employee per month, are wasted looking for an appropriate adapter, a connecting device or a cable to share content. And when the presenter is on a client site, the next phase of the obstacle course brings another surprise: not having IT permission to share content on the client’s network.
In business parlance, the “five-minute meeting tax”—or however long people spend grappling with technology— is pervasive. But it’s not harmless. Time is money and every lost minute takes a big bite out of business productivity and your competitive edge. Time’s a wastin’, and with it, your employees’ window of opportunity to collaborate on how to get new ideas to market.
TechLogix launched their Share-Me™ Presenter Cable line for this very reason. Share-Me™ cables ensure presenters always have the right adapter, no matter their presentation device, allowing meetings to start on time.
