Studies Indicate Shift Toward New Technology in Business World

THAME, England, September 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

A couple of recent surveys have suggested quite a shift in the way modern professionals organise their working lives. It has been argued on the evidence procured by Four Points by Sheraton that business travellers have recently begun to favour tablet computers over laptops when it comes to getting work done on the move.

The tablet is certainly a very portable option for business travellers and the findings of the Four Points by Sheraton study indicates that a staggering 67% of UK travellers prefer tablets to laptops when it comes to business trips. The same survey suggests that 73% are of the opinion that this kind of technology makes business travel easier

Another survey, this one carried out by BCC, suggests that 70% of employers have noticed an improvement in morale and employee relations after putting flexible working conditions in place - something which is likely to increase given the positive experiences many London-based companies had with remote working experiments during the games fortnight this summer.

All this suggests that a change is on the horizon where business communication is concerned, although many companies have been employing online solutions for some time. The team at MeetingZone has experienced a steady increase in the number of inquiries it receives from businesses looking to refine their communications systems in order to accommodate more flexible working arrangements.

Web conferencing and conference calling is on the rise and online systems are being used to support the shift in how the business world approaches communication in light of the wider environmental, economic and technological changes affecting it. This combination of changes is largely behind the surge in popularity communications services available from http://www.meetingzone.com and other companies committed to facilitating a more modern way of working.

The positive aspects of flexible working arrangements and remote working have been known for a long time and it appears that the more employers and employees are afforded a taste of this alternative technological approach the more confidently they commit to it in time.
