MultiView’s technology projections for 2013
We live in a fast-paced world full of smartphones, smart cars, fast food, and 85 mph toll roads. Information can be delivered to us in a simple click or touch of a screen. You can take a picture with your phone and “Instagram it,” “Facebook it,” email it, and send as a text message to multiple contacts in your phone.
Technology has now become a necessity to keep pace with running our daily lives.
The heartbeat of MultiView’s daily operations is technology. One can look around the office and find CISCO telephones, computer hardware and monitors, as well as many other pieces of equipment. Our servers which power the computer network are quite a marvel to see.
I’m amazed at how technology connects so many people whether at work, home or on the road. What also amazes me is exactly how we were able to function 40 years ago without the use of mobile technology.
iPads, iPhones and laptops, as well as other mobile devices, provide a seamless way for individuals and all companies to conduct personal and company business. WiFi hotspots are now on every street corner. You have to wonder what is next on the horizon for technology in 2013.
We saw the launch of such products as Windows 8 and the iPad mini in 2012.The year of 2013 is projected to be another big year for technology. Gamers should be excited about the launch of the PlayStation 4 and XBox 720. Health advocates will be excited about the Basis Band, a watch-like monitor which will be worn on the wrist and measure vital statistics–even sleeping patterns. Mozilla Firefox will also be introducing a new operating system (OS) aimed at competing with Google and Apple’s current operating systems. Needless to say, this next year is going to be huge for technology innovation.
As it pertains to the Buyer Guides, NewsBriefs and MultiWeb, technology will further fuel usage of the MultiView suite of products. Buyers and sellers will reap benefits since these products will be able to be accessed and utilized even faster.
AhHa, powered by IBM’s Vivisimo, further shows MultiView’s commitment to using only the latest and greatest technology. AhHa, MultiView’s newest technology product, is a B2B search engine which provides more authentic search results than Google. It spans over 20 different industries and adds the endorsement of association partners to its search results.
According to Bob Kerr, Vice President of Information Technology at MultiView, 2013 is also going to be a big year with the launch of two large and exciting IT projects. An implementation of a new ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system along with a fully integrated interface to the ERP system for eCommerce transactions has the company positioned for expansion and growth.
Overall, technology in general has impacted the way people live and interact with each other. In the years ahead we will see advancements in all aspects related to technology. Such advancements will allow us to further enjoy both our personal and professional lives.
