It’s no secret that cluttered work spaces not only stress employees but they also make it harder for an employee to be productive throughout their workday. Messes prevent professionals from completing their work as professionals. The same thing applies to a computer desktop, also. A screen that is littered with icons and other documents will make it hard for an employee to organize their work and remain productive.
Messes prevent professionals from completing their work as professionals. The same thing applies to a computer desktop, also. A screen that is littered with icons and other documents will make it hard for an employee to organize their work and remain productive.
However, there is one simple solution to a crowded desktop. That is simply to double the amount of screen space that a worker has by using a dual monitor. For example, dual monitors allow an employee to study one document while creating or working on another. Endless switching back and forth between windows and juggling tabs to find what is being looked for will decrease productivity and increase time spent hunting and searching for information.
While many jobs can be done with just one monitor, two makes it much more easy to do some tasks and much more enjoyable for the employee.
Two Monitors, Endless Uses
The dual monitor system can prove to be used for an endless amount of tasks. From creating a document or writing an email while looking at another source of information or a document to scrolling through various sources of data, dual monitors allow jobs to be done in a fraction of the time that it would take with only a single monitor.
Other uses for dual monitors include graphic designing, image manipulation, and editing of certain documents.
Finally, using more than one screen allows you to stack one image on each screen and to look back and forth while making comparisons to make sure your work is being done as it needs to be. Organizing editing space is also made much more simple. Stacking tools and menus can also help you stay focused and finish the task at hand more quickly so you can maintain your productivity throughout your workday.
More Than Two Screens
It doesn’t stop at two screens for many professionals today. Any various number of screens can be used by professionals to help save them time from having to move from window-to-window and to save time toggling between screens rather than focusing on getting work done. For example, it’s not uncommon for stock traders or market analysts to have 6 or more screens opened at one time so they can view a variety of different information and make choices all without having to change the screens on the same monitor endless times to make a trade or to analyze an investment.
Customized To Your Liking
When you have more than one monitor on at a time, you can set each monitor up to work the way you like it. You can decide what to do display on each screen at a given time without having to worry about going through and finding other information which can waste time that you would otherwise be used for further productivity. Many monitors can rotate to certain angles to allow you to show work to a coworker or someone you are working with. Others allow you to change the landscapes of the screen to see information in a way that is comfortable for you. In the end, the possibilities of using multiple screens are endless and you are the one in control of what you put on what monitor.
A Boost to Productivity
Saving all the time that would otherwise be spent toggling screens and looking for information can be saved, which boosts productivity. Getting more done in a day is always nice and it helps you get the work your employer wants you to do in a day done. Even a 10-15% increase in productivity is vital in the competitive business market of today, which makes the dual monitor system a worthy business investment for your company.
