Technology has provided businesses with the opportunity to communicate with customers and employees through various communication mediums. For example, emails, telephone, social media platforms, apps, etc.
Increased productivity and efficiency
Everyone knows that technology allows us to save a lot of time and work more effectively. We don’t need to put as much effort into getting things done.
