Increase productivity 20% to 30% by adding a monitor

Dual_monitorsThe New York Times has figured out what Eric Mack, James and so many of us already know: additional monitors in your workspace can increase productivity dramatically; up to 30%.

"Adding a second monitor turned out to be the easiest, mostcost-effective and significant improvement in my work since I replacedmy modem with high-speed cable. Now if I can just rig my laptop as athird screen … hmmm."

If you spend hours in a computing environment and haven’t considered a multi-monitor solution, it’s well worth a look and not difficult to implement. I can personally attest to saving precious time with more screen real estate and having important apps opened on my main screen, along with supporting apps and info on a secondary or tertiary monitor.
