Humans are notorious for staying within their comfort zones. When something new or unfamiliar rears its ugly head, we often are too habitual to change with the times. While this is mostly applicable to social situations, such as an introvert being stuck in a hot, stuffy room full of people, comfort zones can also apply to your outdated laptop or smartphone. Upgrading can be challenging, but very rewarding.
Using the modern office as an example, here are some reasons why upgrading to newer technologies is worth the time and money:
Fasten Your Seatbelts
Software grows faster and faster by the day, and it’s not slowing down for anyone. Though the learning curve is sharp, this does have its advantages. Faster software allows your staff to be more productive, working quicker and more efficiently than before.
That Old Beater isn’t Doing Anybody Any Favors
As attached as you may be to your old college computer, you need to think of it like your very first car; it’s old and outdated, and the chance of it breaking down and leaving you stranded in the middle of nowhere is increasing every day. Upgrading to a newer, more reliable system will not only improve productivity, but it will also keep you from being hung up high and dry when you need reliability the most.
The Cool New Thing
One of the biggest advantages of upgrading to newer technologies is that it looks more professional to your clients. Nothing draws in customers like flashy, new technology. When a new version of the iPhone is released, everyone rushes to the store to get it. Why? Because it is an improvement, and so they can tell their friends about it. People flock to those who have the latest technology, and you will likely see an increase in the amount of clients you gain. After all, what would you rather drive: a rusty, beat-down Ford Windstar, or a brand new Chrysler 200?
