As an industry, we’ve often been pegged as late adopters of technology. And there are certainly hundreds of firms running around our space peddling the latest and greatest tech solution to our age old problems. But are we really slow to adopt newer technologies? I don’t think so, and I would love to hear from you.
Let’s take e-mail as a simple example. Studies have shown that most business people open their e-mails BEFORE they have coffee or whatever passes for breakfast. I know I do. How about you?
And on what device do you open your e-mails? I use my smartphone (used to be a Blackberry, R.I.P.). How about you? Do you use your phone for e-mails or a tablet, or is it still a PC? Since Google’s smartwatch has not yet been released, we can rule that out!
But I bet that most of us are, in fact, on top of our e-mails and other communications far more than we think. Are you?
Best, Bill Black
