|The landline telephone is becoming a thing of the past. Cell phones that allow us to video chat, text, and instant message have forever changed how we talk to each other. According to Time, by the end of 2013, 41 percent of American homes were using cell phones.
Technology has not only changed for us on a personal level but also in our work lives. It has a major influence on the ways in which we conduct our business and has a positive impact on how organizations do business. Technology facilitates closer collaboration because employees can work together even if they are located in different parts of the state, country, or even the world. They can access files and documents that are in the cloud and can communicate via teleconferencing and video conferencing, removing the need to travel for meetings.
