How Automation in the Workplace Can Help Every Type of Business

Automation in the workplace is when computers perform the types of tasks that would normally require human intervention, thus freeing up valuable time. These days, modern-day automation systems leverage artificial intelligence and machine learning to perform everything from speech recognition to tasks that require visual perception and much, much more.

The benefit here is about more than just allowing employees to work "smarter, not harder."  Workplace automation doesn't just eliminate those manual, repetitive tasks, it eliminates the error-prone ones too!

Have we told you about Section 179 tax deductions for qualifying leased equipment?  Businesses pay less upfront with monthly payments while still receiving a 100% tax deduction under Section 179. 

Check out the Section 179 Quick Guide

Most new capital equipment, which if purchased and/or financed, and placed into service between January 1 and December 31, 2020 may qualify for these deductions, including equipment acquired via capital lease ($1 purchase option). If you purchased used equipment, it could qualify for Section 179 if the equipment is new to your business.

Please read a letter of appreciation from a CDS customer for Mike Hammond and Ken Kessinger.

We are writing to express our appreciation for the assistance Erika Prindle gave Medical Business Resources (MBR) over the last several months.  First, she helped us get our staff set-up to work remotely from home in March of this year due to the COVID 19 Pandemic.  It was an unexpected, quick move we had to make and we knew nothing about working remotely.  She went above and beyond to find the most efficient, cost effective way to do this amazingly quick.

Her knowledge and remarkable problem-solving abilities are rare indeed and much appreciated.  We want you to know you have an exceptional employee, Erika Prindle.   Her patient, courteous manner was a great help to us when we were very discouraged and frustrated.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our relationship with your company, especially because Erika has been so helpful.  You are fortunate to have Erika as an employee.
