The Changing Face of Business Communications: Technology
Rapidly advancing technology has changed the face of business communications. In fact there are more communication tools available for today’s business than ever before. These tools allow businesses to communicate efficiently, effectively, quickly, and in numerous different ways, and even though businesses could learn to use the new tools more effectively, most are using them quite well. These tools have helped facilitate the globalization of the world’s economies by allowing businesses to instantly connect across all parts of the world. From having Internet access while flying around the world, to using tools such as video conferencing, instant messaging, mobile office, text messaging, and hundreds more, the new business world is always connected.
Perhaps one of the greatest uses of new communication technologies is the today’s factories. Using lean manufacturing and advanced communication methods, companies are able to be more efficient than ever. This factory automation and efficiency heavily depends on effective communication between various organizations, the leadership team, suppliers, customers, and even the machines. According to Allan (2003), wireless communications, along with industrial-grade Ether-nets, continues to revolutionize manufacturing. Businesses are making good use of these advances in order to make product lines flow, to speed up the manufacturing processes, and to remove waste. From signals which indicate the need to reorder material to customer orders instantly entering into the production system, these communication technologies greatly advance today’s business.
