As a business owner, I bet you are always on, a problem solver, constantly doing… and very, committed?  I’m sure these traits sound familiar.  It’s probably because you are the engine that makes your business go.  You have a passion to succeed and will overcome any obstacle to make your dreams come true.  When it comes to any business, it is important you have the best and the right technology to keep up with your pace and help make your vision a reality.   

 

More and more small business owners like you are realizing the importance of technology.  According to the Executive Council on Small Business, smartphone usage has experienced double digit growth over the last three years, and tablet usage is expected to increase rapidly over the next couple of years among small businesses.  Whether you’re downloading apps, checking emails, sending invoices, browsing the web, accessing files, or managing employees in the field, small businesses are using the latest technology to drive growth and increase productivity.

 

Check out this video below to see Jeffrey Beecroft of White Bay Company who built two sets for a Victoria’s Secret shoot.  Jeff discussed how Blackberry is his smartphone of choice which allows him to synch up with his partners scattered across the country.  He uses his Blackberry to send pictures for real-time input from his partners in an effort to meet set building time schedules.   Watch their story.

 

The partners, Jim and Ian, at Yellow Dog Fly Fishing Adventures also shared their story of how they are using technology to run their business.   The two run  a 10-person fly fishing travel agency specializing in remote vacations to exotic destinations so they have to be sure their wireless network gives them global coverage.  Watch their story.

To see how other small businesses across the country use wireless technology every day to improve their business visit www.verizonwireless.com/smallbusiness.  These videos prove the small businesses with the best technology rules.
