    Industries where technology has changed the game

    • 0

    Technology is the driving force behind many significant milestones, with some operations and services simply not being possible without it.

    Some industries appear to have benefited from technology more than others, so what are these sectors?

    Here are the top five sectors where technology has become a game-changer:

    1. Food Delivery

    Food deliveries used to be about pizza boys riding their bikes and dropping off food. Of course, this is still the reality for many locations, but in the big cities food deliveries are on a whole new level.

    The likes of Uber Delivery have helped maximise food options for delivery and made it possible for buyers to track their food like never before. Today, we often know who our delivery guy or girl is and sometimes their favourite film before we have even meet them.

    1. Gaming

    The list of technological advancements in gaming is almost endless with the latest exciting prospect being virtual reality games. However, one simple development that has made gaming even more accessible than ever and widely more popular are gaming apps.

    Improving smartphones and gaming apps make playing online games easy when on the move. This is especially true in the online gambling world where apps make playing slots and table games seamless.

    One of the many reputable mobile casino apps is found at PartyCasino, a trusted online site and part of the renowned GVC group, where the benefit of technological advancements like loading time reductions and lag-free live dealer streaming can be truly noted.

    1. Hotel and Travel

    The whole process of booking holidays and staying in hotels now has a strong reliance on technology, specifically booking sites and apps. But even the at-hotel experience is slowly becoming supercharged with convenient tech.

    From smart coffee machines and concierge apps to the way you access your room, technology is littering these establishments and we appear to like them. 60% of people says they want to experience these things in a hotel and there is even a rumour that this will lead to staff-free hotels in the future.

    1. Finance

    Finance is another industry that has been revolutionised by technology. Of course, there are prominent examples like mobile banking, banking apps and stock exchanges which make trading stocks more accessible than ever.

    There is also another tech achievement which is changing the finance industry, and that is blockchain. Without blockchain, the new wave in crypto will not have been possible.

    1. Music

    Buying, listening and even discussing music is not the same as it used to be. Today, we have a wealth of resources and platforms to access and download music.

    The previously mentioned blockchain technologies are even making a difference in this industry as blockchain becomes a secure ledger for people to record song ownerships and not miss out on royalties they are owed. This could protect unsigned artists but also prevent as many court disputes among those on the mainstage.
