This post is inspired by the PlayStation Network being hacked and going down. You probably read the title and wondered what the previous sentence has to do with business forms. I will bring these two ideas full circle by the end of this post.
Business forms are not the most interesting product in the world, but somebody has to sell them. As a tech savvy 23-year-old, I was naturally a bit uninterested in business forms when starting my current position. I viewed them as outdated and costly. After actually working a real job for a few months, I can see the value in using business forms. Here are 3 reasons why business forms are still effective:
- Time efficiency - In my zipper padfolio (see video below) I have an Ipad and a notepad. It is faster for me to click my pen and jot down a note than it is for me to turn on the Ipad, open an app, and then type on a virtual keyboard. The same thing goes for business forms; it is often just faster to write things down than it is to input them electronically.
