Innovative Tools You Might Just See in the Workplace Before Long

There is so much technology to choose from for your business that it can be overwhelming to pick the right tools for your specific circumstances. There are communication tools, productivity solutions, and even mobile options that can enhance and enrich your clients’ and employees’ experiences with your company. As a business owner, you must do all that you can to keep the future in mind when implementing innovative new technology solutions to fit the needs of your organization.

Today’s blog is all about how these neat technologies can be utilized to build a better future for your business.


Hushme looks like it might be a little intimidating, but it’s actually a very useful tool for businesses that depend on phone calls, yet don’t have much space. The device wraps around the user’s head and covers their mouth, kind of like a muzzle, and it has noise-canceling headphones attached to it. The user can talk into it and no one can hear a sound—very useful for preserving privacy in a busy environment.

Epson Paperlab

If your company uses a lot of paper or handles sensitive information, you might find that your shredder is a common destination for destroying documents. Epson has put together a machine that is an all-in-one paper recycler. A business can both destroy sensitive information and recycle it in-house, making for a convenient way to dispose of documents. It works by defiberizing the paper, removing all information and color, then reforms the fibers under pressure back into sheets of paper. The machine then cuts the paper to specification, and voila, you have recycled paper!

XGIMI Projectors

Some offices have a projector that they use to broadcast information, but thanks to a company called XGIMI, these projectors are more innovative and incredible than ever before. These devices can broadcast 4K video, all while fitting in the palm of your hand, and some even have theater-grade sound built into them.

XEBEC Tri-Screen 2

Many people prefer their laptop over the heavy-duty desktop, but there isn’t always room on the screen to get all of your work done. With XEBEC’s Tri-Screen 2, you can add a couple of additional screens to your laptop, which is super helpful for increasing the amount of work you can do. It’s a great way to make your laptop workspace just as productive as your desktop.
