Here at Americard Payment, we’ve witnesses firsthand the amazing advances in technology over the years. Remember when there was a time when ecommerce stores simply did not exist and you actually had to go into a store to make a purchase? What’s even more amazing is that modern technology now allows us to make credit card payments anytime and anywhere with mobile payment processing. Today, we’re going to discuss some of the ways in which modern technology has completely changed our lives for the better. Some of you might not even be old enough to remember some of the past systems that we mention, so your jaw might drop.
Back in the day, the entire process of looking up a library book and checking it out was much more complicated, thanks to the Dewey Decimal System. Do any of you look back at those times with fondness? We certainly don’t. If there was a book that you desired, you would have to go into the library and look it up in tiny file cabinets to see if they even had the book. If you were curious to see if another library had the book, someone would actually have to call the other library. If your books were overdue, you did not receive any notifications via email. Instead, the next time you attempted to check out a book, you were hit with a fine that you had to pay in cash, which you may or may not have had on you that day.
Before the internet made booking a plane reservation wonderfully convenient, you had to call the airline to book your flight reservation, which could take forever. First of all, you had to actually get a representative on the phone, which could take a long time depending upon the volume of other people calling in at the same time. If you ever wanted to change your flight reservation, you would have to call again, and most likely be on hold for what seemed like an eternity. With the convenience of online flight reservations, you might never have to stay on hold or even call an airline company again.
To be fair, some car rental companies seem to have only one foot in the door as far as modern technology goes. However, some car rental companies are incredibly efficient thanks to modern technology. It used to be if you wanted to rent a car, you would have to call the company to book a reservation. When it was time to rent a car, you would have to stand in lines that sometimes seemed never ending, especially if you were at an airport car rental location. With some companies, not only can you rent the car online, but you can also check in online, saving you the trouble of standing in long lines.
