I Love Technology

I love technology because of all the interesting things you can do and build with it. I love how it can bring a wealth of knowledge directly to me in mere seconds. I also love how it can bring people, separated by thousands of miles, together. Technology allows me to store the contents of an extensive library on a disk that fits in the palm of my hand. I can take pictures, listen to music, talk face-to-face with my wife and kids, search the internet, read a book, and play games on a computer that I carry around in my pocket.

A Trip Down Memory Lane

As a teenager I introduced my parents to a personal computer (PC). If I remember it correctly, it went something like this:

Me: “Hey Mom and Dad this is a computer.”

Dad: “What is that?”

Me:  “That is a mouse.”

Dad: “A mouse?”

Me: “Yes a mouse.”

Dad: “That’s weird. What is it for?”

Me:  “You hold it in your hand and then move it around to click on things.”

Dad:  “Wow that’s amazing, can I try.”

Me:  “Sure, just move it over there and then double-click.”

Dad:  “What do you mean?”

Me:  “I mean click the button twice.”

Dad:  <Click> … <Click>

Me:  “No, you need to click it faster…”

Let me just say it was a frustrating, yet rewarding process. I was eventually able to teach my parents how to double-click a mouse, browse the internet, send email, create Word documents, and change the wallpaper (one of my father’s favorite things). My father had a love of learning and the internet brought a wealth of information right to his fingertips. That was about 12 years ago. Technology has obviously evolved a lot since then and continues to evolve at a rapid pace.

Christopherson’s Business Travel Technology

Travel technology is particularly evolving more quickly than advancements in other industries. We all know that traveling is an expensive, yet necessary part of doing business in a global economy. Managing a corporate travel budget can be challenging and expensive. However, here at Christopherson Business Travel we have made the process much easier.

One of our main focuses as a technology-based company is to provide the tools business travel managers need to manage their travel budgets, keep track of employees as they travel, run accurate reports and access essential data. We have conveniently packaged these tools into a web portal (definition: a doorway, entrance, or gate, especially one that is large and imposing), appropriately named AirPortal®. Throughout the last year, Christopherson’s software development team has completely rebuilt AirPortal® to bring it up to date with the latest web technology standards. Over the next three to six months we will be releasing a slew of new tools and information within AirPortal®. We look forward to sharing more about these enhancements and updates in the coming months.

Please stay tuned.
