Top ‘Back-to-School’ Gadgets for your Office
As a kid, there was only one thing that could lighten the blow of the summer ending, and that was school shopping. No one wants to go back to school, but buying new clothes, school supplies, and lunch boxes is a lot of fun. As adults, we’re the ones who have the job of spoiling our kids, and September doesn’t bring much excitement for us (except, maybe, no longer having to pay a babysitter).
Or, maybe, it can. Just because we’re not in school doesn’t mean we don’t need supplies, and who doesn’t love getting new gadgets for your office? Here are a few that you can buy for your office that will make it feel like a new year and get you excited.
The MTG Electronic Whiteboard
Leave the note-taking to your kids – now that you’re not in school, you shouldn’t have to copy lectures into notebooks, and the MTG electronic whiteboard makes it so that you don’t have to. Download the MTG Sync App and take a snapshot of the notes on the whiteboard after a meeting. The app will allow you to save, organize, and share the information from your phone, tablet, or computer. Use templates to enter information and save time, too!
Tablet Floor Stand
Like talking with your hands? Have to hold a lot of meetings? This tablet floor stand turns your iPad into a podium for hands-free presentations. You can have your notes right in front of you without having to worry about dropping your expensive device. Bring it to conferences for a more professional appearance as you discuss your company.
Cloud Phone System
Are you still using a standard landline? 2015 is nearing closer – it may be time to get with the times. A cloud phone system gives you the ability to hold conference calls, access your work phone from a smartphone app, keep track of your team’s calling habits, and more – all while saving you money. They allow you to make phone calls even when your office’s power is out or the phone lines are down. Your company will be more efficient and you’ll have lots of fun syncing your phone with all the available smartphone apps.
Ergonomic Office Chair
Anyone with a desk job knows that sitting all day can put a strain on your back. As a back-to-school gift, treat yourself to an ergonomic office chair. The Somacomfort Chair, for example, features an interestingly-shaped support system to reduce the tension on the spine and neck. There’s also the American Physical Therapy Association-endorsed Haworth Zody, which conforms to your body and pressure points for optimal comfort.
The Bento Box
There are many different varieties of the Bento Box, ranging from the classic to the more customizable, but they’re all great for a few reasons. They save on waste because they’re reusable; they’re lunchboxes that are dishwasher safe (so you can put your lunch directly inside without needing extra Tupperware), and they’re microwave safe. Plus, you can buy a bunch of different inserts to fit whatever sized foods you want to bring, which makes packing your lunch a lot of fun.
