Digital Technology, even in your Car!

carDigital Technology is everywhere including in your car! I recently came across an Infographic that highlighted how much digital technology has infiltrated into our lives. You only have to look at our vehicles; from rear view cameras, auto parking systems to GPS and automatic synchronization to smart phones and the latest – apps that locate the nearest gas station. As US author Mark Prensky in a recent interview for CNN suggests “any slowdown in the digital age is a “myth,” as innovation will only press forward “faster… and faster and faster.” He told CNN: “We are not going through a transition to another phase of stability, and that is the key point. People will always be behind now and that will be a stress they have to cope with.”

Are you trying to keep up? Would tools to help evaluating your next software purchase help? The Technology Evaluation website  is recommended by the BDC as a quick way to validate system functionality. The site looks pretty comprehensive and offers buyer’s guides, newsletters and various reports.  What about your company website? With over half of us Canadians now shopping on-line it’s scary to think only 7 out of 10 Canadian SME’s have a website especially if you consider many of those websites are little more than a static online brochure. What about you? Are your customers finding you online? And are they impressed if they do?

Productivity is a measure of how much – work, time, effort, money, or energy – you have to put into something to get the desired outcome. For more tips and tools on how to get more productive please visit Blue Collar Consulting Inc. at or check out our new website at
