Amazing Tech That Has Returned From The Past

- 09 August 2016 No Comments
Fashion occurs in one massive cycle and if you don’t believe this, think about corsets. Corsets were popular in the Victorian times. Guess what are now being used by women again today? You guessed it, corsets, for the same reason they were before. To help women get that hourglass figure. Flared jeans slipped back into fashion this year as well.

No one would ever have guessed tech could or would follow the same pattern. It does. Tech of yesteryear constantly makes a comeback albeit with improvements or new uses. Let’s look at some of the tech forgotten that has been brought back from the dead by developers.

If you’ve been playing Pokemon Go, you might have been led to believe that AR is a new idea. On the contrary, AR has been used before numerous times. In the early 2000s, AR was used for promotion on drink cans and bottles. Usually, to advertise new movies like the first Star Wars Prequel.

Amazing Tech That Has Returned From The Past

At this point, the AR code was brought to life when it was placed in front of a Webcam. Around 2010, AR was brought back again for promotion on a far larger scale. It was commonly used because it was cheap to setup and easy to sell. AR codes could be placed on flyers or really, anything at all.

Even the concept of using AR for games is not a new idea. AR was used for the Eyetoy, the Kinect and by Nintendo with the 3DS. Pokemon Go is based on another game that was brought out several years previously. You might think seeing Pokemon in the real world is wonderful. However, it is really just a new spin on an old idea.

Membrane Pads
When the first computers were released on the market, they used membrane pads. If they were still used today, touch typing would be very different, and RSI would be far more common. Typing at speeds of one hundred words per minute would be impossible.

However, that doesn’t mean we haven’t found a use for membrane boards in the real world. Industrial factory owners often work in unison with a membrane keyboard manufacturer. The heavy elements and durable design make it the perfect tech to use in a rough environment. It also stops buttons being pressed accidentally.

3D In The Future
We bet you think that the ‘gimmick’ of 3D is dead. Particularly, with diminished sales of 3D movies and films. Both Microsoft and Sony abandoning support for 3D probably should have been a warning sign for 3D enthusiast. It wasn’t even a passing thought at this year’s E3 convention.

3D In The Future

On the other hand, people who have been watching the tech industry probably know 3D will return once more. In 2009 it was simply a film that used new tech for 3D that brought back the trend.

This year another film will try to trigger that response with Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk. The title may not sound that appealing. But the tech behind the film should be enough to make videophiles get goosebumps.

The film will be shot 120 frames per second in 3D. This will give the audience the sensation of seeing a real event rather than watching a movie. It will be incredible, and no doubt bring 3D tech back into the public eye. Particularly, once film producers discover they can capitalize on it once more.

The Six Things That Are Going to Make Your Business Stand Out

- No Comments
Anonymity and invisibility are two killers of any business’s chance of success. You need to stand out, be bold and make a name for yourself. Otherwise, you won’t be attracting the customers you need any time soon.

Making an appearance
First, you need to have real, physical presence. People, whether it’s other businesses or customers, do a lot better if they have a physical frame of reference for a business.

Host a launch event, go to expos. Shake hands and talk face-to-face with people. If things are beginning to slip, relaunching can be a great way to refresh your business and build a better image.

Six Things To Make Your Business Stand Out

Defining your brand
If you’re having a launch or hosting events, you also need to know what your company is really about. Not just what you do but why you do it and how. In fact, this needs to shine through every kind of communication and marketing you have.

Identify what your value is to your consumers and use that the cornerstone to a great brand identity. This is the first step of any marketing strategy.

Digital marketing
After that step, it’s all about how you communicate that brand. A web design company can help you distil that message into not only visual but written forms. They can help you determine the message as well as how it reaches your customers.

It’s not just about how you use your site, either, but how you find the right channels to reach your customers in things like social media too.
Digital marketing

Value your customers
Having impact is being valued by the customers you need to survive. In business, to be valued, you have to value. You have to show your customers that you care and appreciate about them.

Retaining them by ensuring that they’re satisfied. Be hyper-aware of your customer services by keeping track of your employee’s performance. Establish a connection by adding a personal touch. For example, a thank you note with each delivery.

Once you have happy customers, you would hope that they would spread the word of their satisfaction. Sometimes, it’s not enough to just wait for that, either. There will be those who are happy to review of their own volition.

But you can use tactics to increase word-of-mouth. Tactics like asking them to send you referrals (in exchange for discounts). Incentivise people to share and they will be a lot happier to do so.

It’s not just your customers that need to be talking about you, as we have said. If other businesses do it, particularly successful ones, it lends a credibility to your own operation.

You can establish these kinds of relationships by taking the first step and helping them share their own campaigns. Or even getting directly in touch and asking them.

We hope the above points help you find the ways that you can stand out from your competitors and really make an impact. A strong appearance can help carry you to success, so don’t underestimate its importance

5 Types of Software That Will Make You A Better Manager

- No Comments
A manager’s job is a tough one. You’re expected to manage your team in all areas of business, even if you’re not that clued-up yourself! It’s important that you get to grips with leadership and get the best out of your team at all times. Luckily, software is always available to help you with this task. There’s no better way of solving your issues if you’re struggling, especially with these few suggestions.

Instant Messaging
You might not instantly think of instant messaging as a business tool, but it certainly can be. Many managers are constantly on the go, drifting from place to place. This can lead to employees feeling left out and confused about their roles.
5 Types of Software's for managers

They need to be able to get in touch with you to ask questions and offer their best work. Instant messaging means you can always be in touch and get back to them quickly. Email is good, but real-time conversations are even better.

HR Management
As a manager, you probably have responsibility for a large number of employees. It can grow very frustrating for them if you aren’t on the ball. They’ll come to you with issues like pay and holiday requests, and if you don’t get back to them quickly, it’s annoying, to say the least.

An HR management tool will give you everything you need to make this process as easy as possible. You’ll have detailed information for every employee on there, eliminating the need for confusion.

There’s nothing worse than a manager that continually makes false promises. They’ll ask to see you for a meeting, only to fail to show up for thirty minutes. Then, they’ll arrive, and they won’t be ready to converse with you.

It’s a case of being disorganised and unprepared, and it’s why scheduling software is so important. Simply put, it gives you an easy overview of all the day’s activities. You shouldn’t forget or fail to attend any of them after installing this.

It isn’t easy for a manager to keep track of all their employees and their requests. That conversation you had with one employee months ago might still be in their head, but it isn’t in yours! They’ll want to talk about something in detail, and you’ll have simply forgotten about it.

This is why note-taking software can be very useful. It gives you a way of refreshing your memory about important conversations. It’s also very important for detailing crucial matters that might come back to haunt you.

Project Management
Finally, we come to project management software, which is seen as crucial by many. If you’re working on a big task with your employees, you need to keep a close track of it. Project management software can help the entire team to work together to carry out a project in the best way possible.

 There are many advanced possibilities depending on what you’re using the software for. The basics can include building timelines, sharing files and keeping everyone up to date.

Hopefully, with the help of this software, you’ll become an even better manager!
