Outsmart your smartphone
Sales of smartphones and tablets, two of today’s most popular tech devices, will continue to surge over the next five years.
From the ability to access and manage documents on the go or pull real-time, customized information directly to your device, these tech tools offer a treasure chest of capabilities that can help save time and enhance productivity. As the scope of what smartphones and tablets can deliver grows, knowing how to get the most out of your device’s features and functionality is essential.
One of the best ways to enhance your product knowledge is to attend a free wireless device workshop. These sessions offer instruction and one-on-one tutorials with highly trained facilitators with the goal of teaching you how to get the most out of your device’s capabilities. Not only will you feel more comfortable using the new technology by attending a workshop, but experts also will recommend applications to help you do your job more efficiently. For example, business professionals often are interested in learning more about apps such as CamCard and Intuit GoPayment Credit Card Terminal.
With CamCard, users simply begin by taking a picture of a business card. The application recognizes the data and then saves the information in your address book for easy recall.
Also convenient for business travelers, the Intuit GoPayment Credit Card Terminal allows users to accept credit cards anytime using their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. The app also is available for Android devices. Leveraging this application, you’ll be able to close a sale on the go even if your customer doesn’t have cash.
From an employer standpoint, encouraging employees to attend wireless device workshops also can help to improve business productivity and return on investment. In a nutshell, educational workshops provide value by ensuring users are equipped to fully use their devices and assist customers more efficiently.
