Dual Screens

A dual monitor setup can increase productivity by as much as 40% when multiple screens are used – regardless of profession. Here are the main benefits:

  • a larger and more flexible visual workspace
  • ability to run multiple applications simultaneously
  • display critical information on one screen for reference purposes whilst accessing the second screen to complete tasks
  • easily compare files or data on side by side monitors
  • improved collaboration and communication – when one screen is running a video conferencing application, such as MS Teams Video call, and the second screen is simultaneously used to pull up and share files
  • attaching a larger monitor to a laptop can significantly reduce eye strain and help protect the health of your eyes
