The Good and the Bad about Dual Screens

man working with dual screensSpace and resources are the primary deterrents that give many businesses pause in adapting multiple screen setups in the workplace, but studies have shown that such a system can help give your productivity a significant boost.

At first glance, people may find the use of dual screens a bit excessive and therefore unnecessary, but the truth is that there is more to it than it may seem. In truth, there are a lot of advantages to using dual screens, provided that you can cope with the cons and challenges of utilizing such a system.

The primary advantage of dual or multiple screens is increased productivity. Several studies have shown that using such a system can boost productivity anywhere from 10 to 40 percent. Especially if you use multiple programs at the same time, it allows you to better keep track of workflow, have an improved view (physically and metaphorically) of what tasks you are working on, and divide tasks based on the monitors you are using.

For example, you might need to be constantly online on social networking websites like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, or Formspring to interact with your clients and give immediate responses to queries and concerns. In addition, you may need to attend to other tasks, which can be confusing when done all in one screen. With a dual monitor setup, you can keep your social networking tasks on one screen, and the rest of your tasks on the other.

Space consumption and resources may be an issue for some, but given the increased productivity that goes with adapting such a system, you will find your tasks accomplished much earlier and much more efficiently. This can effectively offset any additional costs, especially in the long run.
