4 Simple Gadgets Every Office Needs

Development in technology means there are more and more ways to optimize your business and improve productivity and efficiency – and plenty of gadgets to help you do that! It can beconfusing to determine what is worth investing in, so we’ve put together 4 gadgets that your company can’t do without.

Careful with Your Wiring!

There are a couple of gadgets you can use to keep your wiring tidy. Working in an office means you most likely have plenty of wires (especially since you have to make sure you’ve got the right micro USB dimensions for each device), so your wires can get tangled and confused with one another. Not only is this a huge hazard, but it can also make your work harder to complete if you’re having to tug around knots or try to untangle the wire you’re looking for. Using cable drops is the perfect way to make sure you keep your wires separate and stop them from getting mixed up – they’ll hold your cable in place on the side of your desk so they don’t get mixed up when not in use, meaning you’ve got ease of access right at your fingertips!

Let Some Light In

Go one better than opening the curtains or the window, and introduce something a little different to the office – add in a “sky light.” Offices can feel cramped, so adding some sky panels to your ceiling can introduce something a little bit different. They allow you to see the sky, so your ceiling is filled with blue skies and white, fluffy clouds, helping you and your employees feel a little more refreshed and free rather than trapped in a stuffy room all day.

Keep Your Communications Snappy

Still using landline to communicate with your fellow co-workers? Well, there’s a much quicker and more efficient way for you to send messages and talk to people. Voice over internet protocol (VoIP) systems like Nextiva use your internet rather than a landline to connect to people, meaning you’ll not only save money but give you more flexibility and options in your work, with features such as portability (so you can call from many different devices) to make your work much more efficient and your business much more user friendly for you and co-workers alike, which is bound to increase your productivity and efficiencyitself!

Start to Get Handy

Things inevitably break or go wrong at the office, and you mayfind yourself looking for a screwdriver to tighten those screws or something to cut your wires with no success. You could invest in a few tool boxes, but these can be pretty expensive, especially if you’re looking for the whole package. If you’re looking for something a little more cost efficient, something like a multi-tool is perfect! They come with anything you could wish for, from a chisel to a bottle opener (for those special occasions!). These are perfect for your employees to carry round too, as they’re lightweight and easy to carry.

With these 4 gadgets, you can be sure your office is not only a productive workplace, but a fun workplace for your employees too!
