Mashable business reporter Seth Fiegerman recently responded to a LinkedIn survey asking professionals around the world which office technologies would be coming and going in the next five years.
Which technologies are on the way out? You can probably guess a lot of them, but take a look at the full post here.
Builders are experiencing the same thing.
The survey reveals that many staples in the office are disappearing as new technology renders them useless. This is causing a simultaneous culture-shift in the workplace. Communication is becoming easier with smarter phones and the increased presence of tablets and laptops. Being able to take work on the go easily means that more people are working remotely now than ever before, and that number is expected to double in the next 3 years.
Technology is changing the way many in the homebuilding industry do business and even the way they perform tasks on the jobsite. You’ve heard the saying “there’s an app for that.” Well, for builders and remodelers, it’s true!
Some builders are even taking matters into their own hands and creating their own tech start-ups.
Other than laptops and tablets, what technologies do you foresee taking over the jobsite in the next couple of years? 3-D printers? Google Glasses? Let us know in the comments below.
