Technology has much to offer in the bid to boost our productivity as much as possible. The conception of the idea that a single computer can be extended to duplicate its display through dual monitors is a game changer. The applications of dual monitor display systems range from our homes to large production factory settings and ordinary business offices. The increasing fame of the dual monitor system is owed to its various benefits.
The biggest advantage of using the dual monitor display system is that it increases productivity. A research found out that using the multiple monitor system in a workstation increases the productivity of individual workers by up to 42%, in addition to a 20% reduction in errors. This is because the multiple display system enables workers to visualize their work on the computer without having to juggle between different tabs opened and displayed on one monitor.
Increased communication and collaboration
The ability to share files between different applications within the same computer and different computers in the workplace can be greatly boosted with the use of the dual monitor systems. With a properly configured dual monitor system, an individual worker can achieve multiple tasks at the same time, such as talking on Skype in one monitor while referring to files on a different monitor.
Extended computing functions
At work, dual monitors allow workers to use different programs simultaneously. Running multiple applications at the same time may be a necessary thing, depending on the workers’ demands. Instead of shifting between different programs displayed within one screen, the worker can have different applications spread out across the two monitors for extended visibility and coordination. This function comes in handy in a factory setting where different factory programs can be visualized. In such a setting, supervisors can be sure to make accurate decisions.
Referencing and comparison
Setting up dual display screens is a suitable configuration that increases a worker’s ability to compare two items. The screens, when placed next to each other, can display different functions or data where the data can then be compared with ease. Also, in such a setting, data displayed on one screen that be referred to while still using the same computer without the need to worry about closing one program to visualize the other.
