Workspace needs and wants have rarely witnessed a change as tumultuous as this since 1913 when Henry Ford changed industrial production forever by installing the first ever assembly line. With workers, and largely, human beings performing all roles of life, relying increasingly on electronic devices for survival, the need for power has become an existential one.
We’ve all faced that instance of dread that drives a jolt up our spine and makes our gut sink, when we realize that we’re stuck somewhere in traffic or in the train and find our battery level at a suboptimal level. What if my boss has a question on the proposal? What if my colleague needs to me to send him something for that one last client deliverable? What if my dad needs a pick up from the airport? SHUCKS I forgot to charge my airpods last night!
The lack of access to convenient, universal touch-points for charging electronic devices is a truly horrific and anxiety provoking problem that extends to all aspects of our lives, especially the workplace. And this is because while only 40 years ago, the human race was still widely using typewriters and telegrams, today we can no longer imagine working without electronic devices. Our productivity and emotional state therefore become inextricably linked to our battery levels.
This is corroborated through anecdotal as well as empirical evidence that documents what happens when employees run out of battery. They get weird, they get frustrated, they steal your charging cable (no wonder you’re always ordering more from Amazon), get selfish and they run home from work. Because our phones contain a repository of our professional identity, our network, calendars, meetings, notes and communication, a dead battery can signal a death of our work day. On the flip side, more battery means increased mental stability, a semblance of order, and increased productivity. A survey of professionals revealed that a device with battery levels over 88% means that they tend to multi-task and do more with their devices.
Therefore, our motto, Roti, Kapda, POWER. Physiological needs have been reordered, and WiFi and Power have now become as important as other existential needs. And this is exactly what we serve to provide at WestCharge; a sense of comfort, that no matter where you are, as soon as you step out of your house, you will have access to a sip of power. At WestCharge, we provide wireless charging solutions for all mobile, and several electronic devices. We turn non-wireless charging compatible devices into wireless charging compatible devices and make sure that your productivity levels remain high.
