Fairfax, Virginia (PressExposure) August 10, 2009 -- Half of working professionals make redundant purchases when it comes to their personal and professional technology tools, estimates Terrance Whitehead, owner and techLifeâ¢ concierge and advisor of Denity Technology Solutions, an area concierge specializing in technology related lifestyle services and product recommendations. These repetitive purchases can cost the average busy professional in cost, unnecessary implementation time and added frustration.
Most people, especially small business owners, complicate their technology tools-- what Whitehead refers to as their "techLife portfolio"-- on a daily basis. These tools include cell phones, PDA's and smart phones; computers, software, and online service providers including email and contact management.
"This results in needless 'technology stress' for the average professional, especially in a tough economy," Whitehead says. "The reality is that by performing a technology assessment, then carefully selecting technology hardware, applications and providers, personal and professional technology can integrate seamlessly, saving time, money and aggravation." Whitehead believes that a "technology portfolio" can be well balanced and well managed like a financial portfolio.
Whitehead recommends consulting a personal technology consultant before making personal or professional technology purchases to replace an item one currently owns. "Newer is not always better, and in many cases you can adapt hardware or software you already own to accommodate changing needs", Whitehead says. "Oftentimes, less expensive options are available even when a new item or service is recommended. Most people spend about three weeks simply deciding on what they should buy, but an experienced professional could reduce that to two to three hours."
