Many businesses are always looking for ways to help improve efficiency of their staff especially when it comes to computer usage. One way businesses can do this is buy rolling out a dual or triple screen set up.
Multiple-monitor setups are now commonplace in businesses and homes across the world.
Whether you need the extra screen for using multiple applications or creating media, having another display can make a huge difference to your daily productivity levels.
Advantages of having multiple screens
So what are the advantages of having Multiple screens?
1. Increased Productivity.
The biggest advantage of using Multiple screens is an increase in productivity.
Over the years there have been a number of studies that have attempted to calculate the change in productivity from using Multiple Monitor. According to a study carried out by the Jon Peddie Research, productivity increases an average of 42% when using multiple displays.
2. The use of multiple programs simultaneously.
Most businesses have some type of workflow that involves using multiple programs at any given time i.e email, CRM system, accounting systems, design software, Internet etc. Single using multiple programs is such a frequent occurrence for many users, having a second or third screen can make this juggling act much less painful and more productive.
3. Works well with laptops and allows for flexibility.
Many users are working from laptops and not staying at one desk all day every day. Setting up an additional monitor is easy with most laptops these days.
This allows users to have a home/work office with a dual screen set up, but still allows for flexibility as it is easy to disconnect the second monitor and take the laptop wherever you go. This is especially the case if you invest in a docking station. The Docking station allows you to simply connect your laptop to your docking station with the devices/screens you require already plugged into it.
Before purchasing additional monitors, it’s important to note whether your existing computers will support Multiple Monitor. A quick look at the back of your PCs will give you the information you need. If the video card currently in the computer has more than one video output port, or if the computer has multiple video cards installed, your system is ready for a second monitor. If not, additional or upgraded video cards will need to be purchased and factored into the cost decision.
