These 5 Tech Firms Are Doubling Their contribution to Medical Chairites

These are troubling times. As the population of our planet continues to boom, every day we are faced with a new and varied crisis. And it comes in all shapes and forms. From natural disasters to hunger. And medical emergencies are no exception. While we in the western world are lucky to be blessed with advance medical treatments and drugs. But there are plenty of nations out there that go without.

Countless countries lack the basic medical supplies needed to deal with very basic issues. Broken bones, cuts and bruises, infection, and the like. All of these issues are extremely manageable and, in our society, we take it for granted. We forget that, when left untreated, these issues compound and become much more serious, even fatal.

And this is just the basic issues. These countries are often home to some of the most hazardous and potentially fatal illnesses known to man. Some that never even reach our shores yet ravage whole cities abroad. These illnesses often go undiagnosed and untreated due to the lack of medical staff, knowledge and supplies. The advance machinery and drugs we have at our disposal are not available to these countries. That is why medical charities, such as Water Aide or the Red Cross seek to end this medical disparity between nations. And contributing to these charities are all sorts of people and companies. Below we are going to look at 5 Tech Firms that are doubling their contributions to Medical charities in 2020.

Practicebloom

The medical marketing provider practicebloom has always been committed to assisting those running businesses in the medical field. They offer a variety of services to allow medical clinics and spas to grow. But their dedication to the medical field does not end there. They have always been an ardent supporter of medical charities the world over. And in 2020, as their company grows, they are seeking to further increase their contribution to these charities, hoping to bolster the good work they do.

Nord VPN

Not the company you would expect to see on a list like this, yet the geniuses behind Nord VPN have always been very keen on civil liberties. Their belief that privacy is a basic human right isn’t the only basic human right they advocate for. They have been staunch contributors to medical charities for years now, citing the idea that everyone should have access to medical care, and they hope to increase their contributions to these charities in 2020. They state that in these rough times people need to come together more than ever before.

Ecosia

The search engine that plants trees. Ecosia has been at the forefront of the environmental movement for a long time now. And they have been clear on their notion that all the money they make goes towards planting trees around the world to combat the increasing climate crisis and help restore nature to her former glory. But in these difficult times, they have decided to put some of the funds they earn towards different medical charities, for the time being. In these troubling medical times, we face pandemic together and Ecosia has shifted their outlook to help with this.

Microsoft

A big player in the game of charity. The founder of Microsoft, Bill Gates, actually runs one of the worlds most successful medical charities. He has always been outspoken about the medical disparity that exists in the world and strives to end it. He no longer has direct influence over what Microsoft does, but the company still holds the morals that Bill Gates instilled. To that end, they are pledging to double their contribution to medical charities around the world. Microsoft is a household name, and as such they know the impact their actions have. People listen when they talk. They follow their example. And by that power, they hope to inspire other companies to make a positive change and give more to those who need it most around the world.

Amazon

Amazon is one of the biggest companies in the world right now. They are dominating the world of online sales. Their video streaming service is taking off and their customer service is improving. All of this is matched by an exceedingly large contribution to charities around the world. Amazons owner, Jeff Bezos, has come out in recent weeks saying Amazon is committed to increasing the amount of money they donate to charities across the globe, including medical charities. The tech giant is leading the charge when it comes to charity, setting a prime example of how a company in such a position of power should handle itself. With grace, care and compassion to those with less. A great example for all of us.

Devices That Help You Stay in Touch With Employees While Traveling

We live in a very mobile world, and businesses have to be able to keep up to succeed. That’s why more and more businesses are implementing mobile devices that allow them to travel without missing a beat. There are three devices businesses can utilize to be mobile and stay in touch with employees while traveling — the smartphone, tablet, and laptop. Take a closer look at how these devices are used.

The Smartphone Is Great for Texting and Calling Quickly

 

Businesses have to be able to communicate with customers to succeed, which is why all businesses have land-lines that customers can call for information. The problem is that most of the customer phone calls are only answered during normal business hours. In this mobile world, customers don’t like to wait for information, so businesses can use smartphones to give their employees direct responses, 24/7.

Smartphones also allow businesses to be more productive because they can access the Internet. Some smartphones also have the ability to establish a remote internet connection for other devices to connect. The most common business tasks on a smartphone are accessing email, keeping track of important dates on the calendar, and using the GPS to get around.

Of course, smartphones do have some limitations, which is why business owners sometimes lean towards tablets and laptops, too. Five inch tablets are trying to bridge this gap, but they aren’t there yet.

Tablets Make Scheduling and Video Conferencing A Breeze

 

Tablets can do everything smartphones can do and more, making them very useful business tools. One of the best things tablets can do for businesses is create a mobile kiosks for accepting payments. This allows business owners to sell products and services while on the go without having to worry about a paper trail, which saves time and money. Tablets are also useful for making spur-of-the-moment presentations and scheduling meetings. They even work with ORSYP workload automation and job scheduling software.

Tablets don’t have a ton of storage space, but businesses can get in trouble if they store important information on one. That’s why certain security measures should be taken on a business tablet, such as a pin number.

Laptops are Perfect for Working in Spreadsheets and Documents on the Go

 

There will always be a place in the mobile business landscape for laptops because of their robust capabilities. For instance, it’s much easier to work in spreadsheets or create documents on a laptop because of the keyboard and larger screen. Laptops also typically have faster processors than smartphones and tablets, giving them more capabilities.

Of course, businesses do have to be more careful with laptops than smartphones and tablets from a security standpoint because of how much information can be stored on them. It’s much easier to steal a laptop than a desktop, so businesses need to have a backup plan for document security and customer information security.

These three devices definitely help businesses compete better in the mobile world. What other ways can businesses use these devices to reach their customers while on the go?
