Everyone that has ever started up a new business will tell you that it is important to be as streamlined and productive as possible, especially during those crucial early stages of business establishment, so that you can provide the best possible products and services to your customers.
One of the ways that virtually all businesses in 2014’s modern world can do this is by having the right technology at their disposal. Unfortunately, some business owners make the wrong decisions when it comes to buying in technology for their firms, and, as a result, they end up being inefficient and in severe cases this could even commence the beginning of the end for these fresh new firms!
Here is a selection of five top technology devices that all startup businesses should have in 2014, and the reasons why they are considered to be essential items!
1. Buffalo LinkStation Duo 4TB NAS Drive
When you are starting up a small business, the last thing you want to do is spend lots of money on computer equipment such as file servers. A cost-effective alternative would be to buy a device called a NAS (network-accessible storage), such as the Buffalo LinkStation Duo 4TB NAS Drive.
They are basically like portable external hard drives, except that they can be accessed over the network.
2. Konica Minolta Bizhub C35P Colour Laser Printer

The Konica Minolta Bizhub C35P colour laser printer gives you the best of both worlds by offering you crisp and sharp laser quality printing but with the added advantage of being able to print out colour images and photographs!
3. Apple iPhone 5S Smartphone
When you are out and about visiting clients and suppliers, you need to be able to keep your finger on the pulse and check your emails as well as being able to reliably make and receive phone calls and text messages, not to mention having at your disposal a number of productivity apps.
The Apple iPhone 5S helps you to do just that and more, and is a popular choice among all small business owners and professionals alike.
4. Apple iMac Computer
One of the things that you need in your office is a reliable computer, and whilst Apple computers tend to be dearer than their PC equivalent, the Apple iMac is generally a better-built computer which can also run the Windows operating system and associated applications, should you need to have a dual-boot system.
5. Cisco Unified IP Conference Station 7937G
Sometimes you need to speak to more than one person simultaneously in a telephone conversation, and so for this purpose you need a capable telephone that can help you make conference calls such as the Cisco Unified IP Conference Station 7937G.
It offers state of the art handsfree telecommunications which are clear and suitable for a room full of people, such as at boardroom meetings.
