Today we use apps (applications) on all our devices and computers to assist with a myriad of activities, such as engaging in social media, enhancing productivity, catching up on the news around the world, and so much more.
It’s no secret that technology advances are made daily. Many of these advances have reshaped how businesses run and operate by focusing on methods that make simplify tasks and help for users work smarter, not harder.

At AdvantEdge, we’re constantly exploring innovative ways to manage our schedule and organize our day. While we used to be confined to the tools that could physically fit on a desk (your rolodex, your calendar, your calculator, your mimeograph), the technological revolution utterly changed the way we work.

They can be used to demonstrate a new product in multiple locations, hold a face-to-face interview without spending money on unnecessary travel, and connect your colleagues with staff at any location around the world.

However, with the increased usage of answering services such as Google Voice and other automated response systems, personal attention may take a backseat over efficiency.
