Smartphones ‘changing face’ of offices by making scanners and photocopiers redundant
Smartphones are “changing the face” of offices by making devices like scanners and photocopiers redundant, according to tech experts.
The items were once mainstays of every office but will soon become as outdated as VHS and cassette tapes, according to tech entrepreneur Michael Zhen.
He founded CamScanner, an app that allows people to quickly scan and copy documents onto their phones, in 2011.
Smartphones were key to helping the app take off in popularity, and Mr Zhen firmly believes they will continue to change the face of offices in the future.
He said: “The same way the technological landscape has allowed us to compress what once was a Xerox copier into the palm of your hand has also led the transformation of the way
people work and, more importantly, where they work from.
