Recently I used my laptop on a Wi-Fi network to complete business transaction that required the signing of a legally binding intellectual property contract. These things can get to be rather complicated however in this case it was fairly simple and straightforward. I used a popular program to type up the necessary information that would be transmitted to the purchaser. I used the application installed within the program to check my document for errors. I then checked my work to ensure that all of the pertinent information was present, everything looked good. I transmitted my document using the website of a broker that I frequently use and everything appeared to be in order. Within the hour I noticed an e-mail from the broker concerning the document, I checked it immediately. Apparently there had been an oversight after all. I quickly made the necessary adjustments to my document using the same program already installed on my laptop. Again, I used the application to check errors in grammar and spelling. I triple checked my work to ensure that I had completed the changes requested by the purchaser. I wanted to make sure that I acknowledged my error in a professional manner. Before transmitting my document I decided at the last minute to add the opening phrase “I apologize for the oversight, please see revisions below.’ Once again I submitted my document to the broker and awaited a response. Within the hour the document had been accepted, transferred to the purchaser and payment submitted to my account. What could potentially been a very lengthy process in the old business world is easily simplified with today-s technology. I was able to accept a contract, write up a document, transmit it, send and receive correspondence and finalize the sale all from a Wi-Fi laptop while sitting on my deck.
