Personal Productivity: Office Technology that Powers Performance
What throws off your concentration at work could be something as simple as a wire getting caught and you having to untangle it. Or maybe you forgot your notes for a conference at home. How about co-workers coming in and out of your workspace with questions? Losing focus can impact the quality of work we produce.
Powerful Productivity Products
While we can’t control how many distractions you encounter from outside forces, we can help supply you with the tools that can help you do your job more efficiently.

Have all your notes with you at all times with Evernote — an online database that stores your notes and where you can search and share with others. Having all your information in one place will cut down on time wasted searching and will allow you to continue working.

Your fingers never need to leave the keyboard with this innovative headset from Voyager. With Smart Sensor technology, use your voice to answer incoming calls without ever breaking away from your workload.

Samsung SC200 Series Desktop Monitor
Having a dual monitor has saved me ample amounts of time. Since I can work on a project on one screen and have research on another, I don’t have to get frustrated looking on multiple tabs/pages.
Alera K8 Series Ergonomic Multifunction Mesh Chair
Ergonomic office furniture can literally make or break your workday. Choosing to use an ergonomic chair in your office can help to relieve aches and pains associated with sitting for extended periods of time. Spend less time moving around in your chair or perhaps adjusting that pillow you have, or that blanket you rolled up to act as lumbar support. Get and stay comfortable right off the bat.
Get Appy with Productivity Applications
If you’re like me and you put in overtime, then using applications (apps) on your tablet and smartphone can help make those extra hours feel less tiresome.
- Evernote: This free app syncs your notebook online so it is searchable wherever you have Internet.
- Timeful: Available on iOS devices, this app helps you time manage by putting your events, to-do list, and habits (that the app learns over time) on your calendar.
- Refresh: If you have a lot of business meetings, Refresh could be a lifesaver. Seamlessly linking Gmail, Facebook, etc. this app brings together information from social media channels about your contacts into one place. This is a wonderful relationship builder because being able to connect with someone on a personal level will show that you care about making an affiliation.
- OmniFocus: If you are looking for a task manager that is mobile ready then OmniFocus may be a perfect fit. Among its different uses I enjoy that the app eliminates extraneous things and helps me to focus on what is most important.
