As a technology and capital goods company, we are actively helping shape our future. It seems technology has long been integrated into our daily lives and its positive effects are appreciated – as you can read here in an interview with Florian Tatschl, BÖHLER Schmiedetechnik GmbH & Co KG in Kapfenberg.
Florian Tatschl is Key Account Manager at BÖHLER Schmiedetechnik GmbH & Co KG in Kapfenberg, Austria. In his position, he looks after customers in the turbine engineering and special forgings segments as well as sometimes in the area of engine discs. With his desktop computer, he often used to be tied to his desk. Thanks to the use of modern communication technologies that is no longer the case today and he can now make his way to his customers more often – a clear advantage in the eyes of this sales employee.
Which technologies are you using in your everyday duties and how do they benefit you?
The use of technology, whether in production or in my daily work routine in the office, is continuously growing. For me personally, the use of smartphones in my daily work has especially intensified. Today it is one of, if not THE, most important communication devices, which in many areas can supplement or even completely replace the traditional PC or laptop. Today we have access to email and contact information even when on the go, and we can be reached at any time or place. When I started with BÖHLER Schmiedetechnik GmbH & Co KG, the inside sales force was only equipped with a desktop computer. For me, in sales, not being chained to the desk is a big advantage over how it used to be.
In your professional opinion, how will use of technologies change and develop in your area in coming years?
In my opinion, the availability and mobility of technology will continue to grow, which primarily will increase the speed of communication even further.
