How the right configuration of computer hardware, networking hardware and software can save your company significant time and money.
Believe it or not, according to studies, having dual monitors on your employee’s desks can increase efficiency, accuracy and satisfaction substantially!
According to the Wichita study: “The 17-inch single monitor configuration was clearly the least preferred configuration.
Participants were often observed to show disappointment (or groan!) when they were asked to use this configuration for most tasks. This was especially true if they had already used a dual-monitor configuration. Participant satisfaction was higher for the dual-monitor configurations overall.
These findings are important, because it is well documented that higher satisfaction often is related to higher productivity.”
The Utah study found that workers showed a 44-percent boost in productivity for text tasks and a 29-percent rise for spreadsheet tasks when moving from a single screen to a dual-monitor setup.
To translate these productivity gains into dollars and cents, the Utah study breaks out the potential savings by number of employees and by monitor configuration.
For example, moving from a single 17-inch screen to a setup of dual 19- inch monitors brings a productivity gain that translates to 56 extra days of work per employee per year, or approximately $1.5 million in cost savings per year for a company of 250 employees.
Moving to a widescreen 22-inch monitor, according to the Utah breakdown, yields 66 days of extra work per user and a
savings of almost $2 million.
