Well as you will know I am out in Haiti right now so I thought I would prepare some blogs to fill the time in case I get no internet connectivity (forward thinking is the logistician’s friend) and to be honest no one wants to hear the jetlagged ramblings of a logistician. So what to blog about…. What better than techy stuff, you know time delayed blogs, apps and kit. I thought I would put together my top techy items that make my work life more efficient. In no particular order…..
The iPad 2
Take a picture of your colleague with the iPad and get to draw a pink moustache and wild curly hair on them…..Doh! In all seriousness this is a great app for working cross culturally in logistics, no matter how fluent my French gets there are a few technical words that I just can’t recall. A picture paints a thousand words, snap away in the warehouse with the iPad and then draw on circles to highlight points or arrows o show where to move things. I love Skitch more for this than the countless friends I have drawn facial hair on.
