Technology For Humans: The Importance Of Human Connection

At Solid Systems, we operate with a purpose. And it might not be one that you’d expect to hear from a technology company.

We aim to strengthen human connection to make a positive impact in people’s lives.

And we see technology as one of the best tools to help us do that. The simple act of picking up the phone when a client needs you, of having a video call over Microsoft Teams to connect your offices around the country, of being able to send a message and have it distribute across all of your humans’ devices, these are small touchpoints that can make a massive difference in the way you and the humans in your business work.

This month, we’re taking a look at some of the ways that Solid Systems is strengthening human connections, both within our business and yours. Plus, we’re sharing some great reads that can help you to strengthen human connection within your own business as well.

Co-Founder and CEO of Solid Systems | I am a father of two, and a mentor of many. My calm focus makes me a natural leader, both in and out the office, and I have a unique skill in nurturing leadership qualities in others as well. But most of all, I understand the true value of time and the ways that technology can optimise efficiency within a business and see humans making the most of the time available to them, both in terms of productivity, and in terms of personal growth.
