A computer setup with dual monitors can vastly improve job efficiency if you need to access data from one product and transfer it to another. Rather than spend an enormous amount of time shifting back and forth between software products, you can place one set of software on one monitor for data gathering and the software product you need to transfer the data to on the second monitor. If you need to access data in one Excel spreadsheet and place some of it in another Excel spreadsheet, you will save time by using the dual monitor setup.
