Impact Financial Systems publishes a regular blog that includes updates on business process automation, financial services and technology trends, news, information and more.

Last year, they published this post on the top financial services blogs to follow. Not only has this blog post been one of their most viewed, it’s also served as a great resource for FinServ and FinTech industry news, trend, and commentary. They decided to do the same for InsurTech as they launch more products for the insurance industry.

I am pleased that my website is included in this roundup of blogs IFS feels represents the best commentary, insight and news in the insurance space about Insurance Technology (InsureTech).

An Update on the Optimum Setup for Multiple Monitors in Your Office

I began suggesting that every insurance agency should add multiple monitors to their desktops over 15 years ago. I could see blank stares from the people in the audience. “Why would we do that?”

I no longer need to convince agency owners of the wisdom of having multiple monitors on every desk. Today, the questions I receive revolve around fine-tuning the setup, and how many and what type of monitors is optimum.

Following are some of the questions I receive and my opinion on what might be best for your particular situation, or your office. My disclaimer is that your final decision on how to best set up your desk is ultimately your decision based on your personal preference and what will work best for you.
