Today's Flash Back Friday takes us to Episode 75, from April 2013.
There is hardware and software technology available for seemingly everything, and more are being developed every day. But who actually uses them the way they were intended, let alone to their full potential? Often people just let the tools get stale while they go off looking for the next great thing.
Jason Hartman is joined by techno-geek Sierra Modro, technology futurist, speaker, and consultant. The two talk about how businesses can save a lot of money by simply learning to properly use many of the resources they've already purchased. New products may seem to be the latest and greatest, but are they worth the time and money to switch to? Sierra explains how the iPad is being underutilized for business needs.
Sierra also gives some recommendations for cheap or free tools that businesses should look into, Dropbox being one of them. Most organizations already have more technology than they are effectively using. Stop wasting your technology resources.
