For example, one of the organizations managed by government ‘Transport for London’ is improved a lot. 5 years ago, people who are using the public transport like bus and tube had to buy tickets for daily or weekly use, the ticket is a piece of paper, you need to use it through your tour, if you lose it you have to buy a new one. But now, Oyster Card replaced the paper made tickets. Oyster Card is promoted by Transport for London and it is a form of electronic ticketing used on public transport. With the Oyster Card, travellers don’t need to purchase tickets again and again; an Oyster Card can be used until broken, what you need to do is top up your card and when you use it, just scan it on the bus. It makes travel so easy and save a lot of time.
WFC improved a lot after upgrading their system. White-black Printers are used, and then colourful printers replace the old one, with the new one, works becoming attractive; as Moodle have been used, activities are posted on the home page instead of printing it out as a leaflet and paste it on the board. For example, electronic board replaces the traditional blackboard, with the electronic board, lessons are more interactive and attractive, and it is efficient. But people need to receive training before using them, and it cost a lot of money to install them in most of classroom.

Technologies bring massive changes to organization’s business and the way they promote their business. When you browse on the internet, you can see many advertisements are posted on the website, pop-ups always come out which is annoying; junk emails like eBay sales.
For example, years ago, all the advertisements are done by poster and leaflet, even in newspaper and magazines; it is not so attractive and useful. Nowadays, people are too busy to read advertisement in any paperwork unless they are in the tube. Companies changed their way in advertising their products like on TV. For example, when you waiting for Tube, there always posters on the wall and them need to be changed regularly, it is a kind of waste of paper and money. A new technology is used in the Tube station, a projector is installed and display advertisement automatically as you save advertisement in it.
