We all enjoy playing with new gadgets in our personal time, but it is arguably at work that the quality of technology is most significant. Whether you're at a desk, in an operating theatre or out in the field, the availability of the right equipment can have a profound impact on the way we work.

And it isn't always beneficial. Granted, the right tech can be a real boon for productivity, but poor deployment can be an equally large setback. We know there are plenty of HEXUS readers who are influential when it comes to business IT and we're intrigued to hear more about your real-world experiences.

For this week's question let us ask: how do you rate the tech in your workplace? Share your thoughts using the comments facility below.

The hardware is fine for what we do, some of our software not so much. I don't want to give out too many details due to the nature of our work, but we have a case management system that is absolutely dire, their support is shockingly unprofessional too. Can't wait for the contract to end so I can advise the management on a far better system, I already have my eye on one or two.
Every other company in our industry uses a certain piece of software but we (because we used to think we were awesome back in the 1970s) will spend loads of money developing our own version, which won't ever work properly, will lack most sensible functionality, will not talk to anything else (despite inter-system communication being its biggest selling point), and the IT support helpdesk won't have even heard of it… and everything will be so restricted and so locked down that you'll still be on Firefox v7 when everyone else is using v56!

Our tech is dire. We only operate as a company because pen and paper still exist!
Well, I'm sort-of retired so I only do what jobs I want, if I want.

The tech I have available is perfect for my needs which, these days, aren't high. It's exactly what I'd have picked if I'd picked it myself. Funny, that. My boss understood my needs perfectly. Great guy, too.

Who do I work for. I'm self-employed, and have been for several decades. ;)

Is this the same one that sends stuff to CPS?
I work from home so a big no from me. My boss is useless….. ;)
