he popularity of the computer technology in this 21st century is so magnificent that it is very rarely possible to witness a person or a society or a sector that has not be smitten by its charming functionalities, which have made our livelihood more versatile and highly efficient. The computers have become the ubiquitous impedimenta that add more power to whatever operations we carry out either for our personal benefit and or for the societal or global benefits, which is especially the scenario when the business world is concerned. In today’s business sector, you could find anything and everything influenced and supported by the robust computer technology that has widened the operating periphery and has shattered the encumbrances that were a hindrance to the growth and development of both the business and the benefitting society.
While few complaint that computers have replaced the humans at the workstations, sucking their jobs and potential money required for their basic livelihood but, the truth is actually the other way around. The computers, although may seem to drastically reduce the labor forces involved in a working environment, what they actually do is eradicate the ‘unnecessary’ human energy spent on trivial activities and sensibly replace it with computer automation, in where the humans control the behavior and working of the computers involved at needed intervals. Thus, instead of dwindling the job opportunities, the computer technology has actually increased the opportunities in multifold, in where the true job is for the humans’ minds without exploiting their physical energy and health. This has also led to the increased productivity, efficiency and error-free results that add more meaning to the business services and the benefitting society.
When we think about the role of computers in transforming the business sector significantly, the following advantages come to our mind, which always makes us feel, how blessed are we, especially this 21st-century-generation, to work along with the computers, that simplify our lives with meaningful solutions.
The advantages offered by the computers to the business sector:
- Increased Productivity
The job that was carried out by ‘n’ number of human energies have been efficiently replaced by a ‘single’ computer, but the outcome or the productivity is more than what it was feasible with the excessive human population. With a single computer and a sensible business automation tool, you could create invoices for the thousands of employees without any error and, at the same time, more quickly and efficiently, as opposed to the non-computer methodology, in where more than one accountant, depending upon the organization’s strength, would have to spend days of time in preparing and producing the monthly invoices, and despite the time consumed, error-free is not guaranteed, always! Such is the increased productivity of the computers and their governing software and tools.
- Quick services
When the business organizations wanted to communicate among themselves in the earlier days that involved documents transfer, all that was possible was to send the crucial documents through time-consuming postal mail services that took days and even weeks when the weather conditions were not favorable. Although these days due to the super-fast automobile technology, the speed of the postal services has drastically improved, it is impossible to compare it with the computer technology, in where using the slick communication tools or the software, it is possible for the business to safely deliver their documents in a matter of few seconds or at the max few minutes. This is also an instance for the proof of increased efficiency in the business sector, due to the computers and their relevant business software tools. There are a number of tools for different other processes that magically deliver the critical results, in a matter of few seconds, unbelievably.
- Easy storage
Storage has never been much of a problem after the intervention of computers and intelligent software tools that made the storage job much easier and quicker. For example, in every business sector, you would want to maintain the employee details and pull it out as and when necessary. While these were carried out earlier using physical files that drastically utilized an entire building, especially if the organization is bustling with thousands of employees, all these are possible today with the advanced computer databases and business software tools, in where you can hold thousands of employee details without much hassle.
And, retrieving the details and processing out of them are ridiculously easy with the sophisticated business software tools like the office suite, invoicing tools etc. that makes our job much easier without annoying complications.
Computers Have really Transformed The Business World!
- Less error
The software and other tools that steer the computers are coded after months of planning, validations, and testing and hence, do not cause any serious errors when utilized for our crucial services. After the intervention of computers in the business, the ‘silly’ human errors have drastically reduced, as most of the organizations these days rely upon the automated business tools for their routine actions and deliverances.
