While today is a day for expressing our love for the people in our lives, we thought we would ask the Artisan team what technology they love for increasing their productivity. Here are some of their answers:

Jess Bedford: “Hard to imagine life without my iPhone and my WiFi connection. Together they keep me connected on all my social networks, let me browse the net, pay bills, provide directions and weather reports, let me take and post pictures, allow me to Facetime with family and friends all over the world and even let me make/receive calls.”

The newest member of our Team, Jessica Joy Reveles loves an app: “Gone are the days of taxi cabs! Hands down, Uber is the new hot company to watch this year. Uber is a professional car service available instantly via text or app.” Sounds great for L.A.!

Artisan President Katty Douraghy is not alone: “Love my iphone. Feel lost without it. Can’t leave it.”

Laura Burns is a woman after my own heart:

“I love LinkedIn….my best friend in the biz
I love my iPad….lets me surf and browse anywhere
I love my iPhone….and the apps I have….Telenav GPS, EventBrite, Evernote (just got it), BofA deposit check with pic App
I love Facetime….more clarity than Skype and I can interview people from just about anywhere
I love Doodle…not love (like), it allows me to schedule appts with ease
I love technology…from the moment I wake up to the moment I shut my eyes, my technology is with me :) Craziness!”

I’m with Laura: I have lots of gadgets and love them all! From my laptop to my Kindle to my mobile hotspot to my smartphone, I am always loaded for bear!

What technology do you love? We would love to hear about it!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Wendy Stackhouse, for Artisan Creative
