It’s a sobering statistic, but the typical employee spends over nine years of their life at work. That’s the equivalent of 82,068 hours – and this doesn’t even include time spent commuting! Because of this, it’s no surprise that the quality of the workspace environment is a major factor that influences how many of those 82,068 hours are spent productively. In fact, recent research has shown that millennials are even rejecting potential employers because of poor or uninspiring working environments.
Dual monitors increase productivity by 42%
Another important factor that directly influences employee satisfaction and productivity is the technology that you provide to your staff, and research by John Peddie shows that dual LCD monitors can increase productivity by up to 42%. But although you may have a dream dual-screen workstation setup at your desk in the office, what happens when you need to travel, and suddenly your beautiful 27-inch Business Monitors are replaced by a relatively puny, single 15-inch laptop panel?
The good news is that you don’t need to sacrifice productivity when travelling for business, thanks to the development of high-quality, portable and entirely USB-driven monitors.
Take the ASUS MB169C+, for example. At just 8.5mm thin and weighing only 800g, this attractive 15.6in display is certainly significantly easier to stuff into your bag or suitcase than a desktop monitor, and far less likely to prompt funny looks from the airport X-ray machine operator too. Plus, with a Full HD, 1080P resolution and IPS panel technology, it’s equally adept at playing movies in your hotel room and presentations in the meeting room.
USB-powered to reduce travel clutter
The MB169C+ uses DisplayPort over USB Type-C to provide both power and data transmission through a single cable, so there’s no need to pack an additional AC adapter, further cutting down on travel clutter. And once you’ve reached your hotel or meeting destination, set up is a simple matter of attaching the USB Type-C cable and positioning the screen using the three-way adjustable stand, which conveniently also doubles as the protective carry case. With a Blue Light filter and TÜV Rheinland-certified ASUS Flicker-Free technology, your travel-weary eyes need not suffer any additional strain.
Those with slightly older business laptops can opt for the ASUS MB169B+ instead, which uses the more common USB 3.0 Type B interface. It lacks the ASUS Eye Care features but does have the handy ability to auto-rotate into portrait mode. This makes it ideal for those working with complex spreadsheets or needing the ability to view documents full-length.
Stay mobile and productive
A comfortable and familiar workspace may be an essential component to ensuring your staff are happy and productive in the office. But even with the convenience of video conferencing, travel and face-to-face meetings remain vitally important for many businesses. With the ASUS MB169C+ and MB169B+ portable monitors, you can equip your field staff with the tools they need to retain that impressive 42% leap in productivity, no matter where in the world they happen to be working.
