Here's what I always say, Jack, about computers, cells phones: "you can't live with them and you can't live without them!"

Jack,

People seem to forget, that the technology is to assist us, not to RUN our lives with it.  A

It was supposed to free up our time. However, with all the tech tools we are even busier than before. Everyone expects instant gratification.

Procedures are there for a reason, nice to have all the applications in one place, your email inbox, rather than scattered through the store in various asst mgrs desks.

The Internet can be a great boon or your worst nightmare.  It all depends on how well it's utilized.  This store is an example of what not to do.

They don't create a lot of problems, but computers don't solve all of them either.

Good luck!  The net and computers have made certain things better, but other processes (such as face to face and dating) have suffered.

More problems? No. Just different problems.

Different problems requiring different solutions and other consequences.

Like the "complete the application on line but bring the application in personally" and install a gate keeper to shield the decision maker. It is frustrating when someone uses only half to the technology solution.

We frankly look at computers and the net with the thought that when information is accessed, too many accessing the information only have a partial piece of the puzzle, but yet are willing to make decisions or form opinions only on what they have read on the net with the assumption that it is all true. If that were the case, FB posts would have us believe dogs are observing us.

The use of computers in our business has helped, in most cases.  Have two sellers right now with no computer, and have to go back to basics with everything.

Good morning Jack. Much more of a benefit, as I can do twice as much business than I used to do, in the same time period.

The company my husband owns requires potential employees to apply online and will not talk to any prospect that hasn't taken this step. It is two-fold. One it to treat all applicants alike and the other is to see if they can follow directions.
