Quick IT tips for working from home
Do you work from home? Here are four home working essentials that will make your workplace more efficient and more comfortable:
1. A stable broadband Internet line: This is the most important item you need as a home worker. Video conferences will not stutter, file transfers will be zippy, and your productivity will not suffer.
2. A comfortable desk and a good chair: These furnishings make working less stressful and more enjoyable.
3. A webcam and a VoIP phone: Actually seeing the person with whom you are having a conversation can transform the communication process. Furthermore, a VoIP phone will cut your communication costs drastically.
4. An all-in-one printer/scanner: A multifunction device combining a fax, printer, and scanner is a prerequisite for any home worker who wants to run a productive office.

Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
