Software may not be the most exciting of topics for many people, but it’s actually made a surprising difference to the way that we live. From the way that we communicate, to finding our way around and even paying for goods in a store – software makes so many aspects of our lives that little bit easier.
Here, we’ll look at just some of our everyday life experiences which have been made much more enjoyable by software.
The way in which we communicate has been made much faster and simpler thanks to software. Now, we can instantly connect to our friends and family thanks to instant messaging apps such as WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger.
Communicating has never been easier. Without software developers, we’d still be relying upon snail mail and standard calls.
For businesses, CMMS has helped to make maintenance operations more efficient and straightforward. It can optimise the performance of machinery, people and assets, as well as aid in decision making. Companies such as SSG Insight, provide high-quality CMMS solutions, reducing the risk of human error and automating tasks such as inventory logs and managing assets.
Our home entertainment has also been drastically improved thanks to software. We’ve gone from video tapes to DVDs, and now to internet connected devices. Rather than having to physically go out and buy movies to watch, we can now pay for and stream movies from the comfort of our living rooms.
Home devices such as Amazon’s Alexa, are constantly connected to the internet and allow us to access a huge range of entertainment. From listening to our favourite music to controlling the lighting in the home, these clever devices are on hand to help.
The healthcare system has been revolutionised by software. Now, our health practitioners have real-time access to our records. Not only that, but our records are also much more secure and more accurate. Software has helped to reduce the number of mistakes made by doctors, providing us with much more reliable healthcare.
There is also a large range of healthcare apps you can use on your smartphone. These enable you to monitor your weight, fitness and diet, as well as help to quit smoking.
So, as you can see, our everyday lives have been made so much easier thanks to software developers. We may not think about the work that they do very often, but one thing’s for sure – we’d be pretty stuffed without them!
