“There’s an app for that.”
Remember that slogan? In 2009, Apple used the allure of an “app for everything” as a way to promote the iPhone 3G. Now, with the iPhone 8 to hit stores later this year, it’s hard to believe that having an “app for everything” was ever a key selling point as it seems so normal to us now.
We know all too well that there are apps for everything, almost too many things. There are apps for dating, ordering food, getting a taxi, saving money, making art, buying groceries, staying in shape...the list goes on and on. Our new hyper-connected world comes at a time in the home service industry when software is encouraged to help manage day-to-day calls, customer interactions, dispatching, past job data, even down digital signatures, and proposal writing. At any given point during the day, we’re connected to some sort of device. This can become extremely overwhelming for some employees and eventually affect the work they do. So how do you avoid the burnout?
