How to Increase Productivity by 50% for $200

Are you viewing this blog on your left screen, middle screen, or right screen?

If your answer is “uh… my only screen” and you spend significant time in from of a computer, then you’re missing out on a huge opportunity for productivity gains…Adding another monitor.

You won’t be constantly flipping between your email client and whatever you’re working on. By simply adding another monitor you can gain up to 50% productivity fairly instantly. Here’s why:

  • You can actually compare 2 things without struggling to fit them on one screen
  • When needed, you can stretch one application across both

This is great for just one user, but if you have a team working for you and you get all of them using multiple monitors, the hours of productivity gained will add up very quickly.

It works for anyone at a computer ranging from developers (1 screen code, 1 screen test site) to sales people (1 screen writing proposal, other looking at support material).

If you have a desktop, it’s easy, get an extra video card for $100, get a monitor for $100, and you’re good to go. If you don’t want to mess with the inside of the computer, you can but a USB video card instead.

If you have a laptop, it’s REALLY easy, just plug another monitor into your laptop and set the screen properties to “span screens”.

Try it out. And after a few weeks of massive productivity gains, feel free to take some of your cost savings and contact Susco to develop a Web or Desktop Application to better connect your customers and/or make your workforce more efficient.


Have a great week!
