Realizing the Impact of Technology Thu 31 May 07
I've been in my new job for 2 months and had just completed my expense report online. After doing this you have to mail the hard copy receipts to Accounts Payable. And that's when it struck me. I'd been in this job for 2 months and this was the first time I had to actually mail something out. Up to this point the phone, email, and online systems had met all my communications needs allowing me to sign up for company benefits, schedule meeting and exchange information. Two months and never needing to mail something, now that is a change from the way business used to work.
Interestingly enough when I asked someone who at been working in the building for over a year where the mailroom was - they didn't know. Things really have changed! But this wasn't the first time I had this kind of experience.
