What is a PDA?

The Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) is a lightweight, hand-held computer designed for use as a personal organizer with communications capabilities; also called a handheld. Since their introduction in the last decade of the twentieth century, personal digital assistants (PDAs) have become useful tools for personal information management.  

A PDA is a Useful Tool for PR Practitioners

For a Public Relations practitioner a PDA can be a wonderful device. Instead of having a different device for each piece of technology that they need a PR practitioner would benefit much more by just using one PDA. PDA’s can be the digital equivalent of the day planner business professionals and especially PR practitioners would need to keep in their pocket. In fact, they can help with much more. With to-do lists, calendars and phone numbers all at a touch of a button, even the most unorganized individuals can improve their efficiency and effectiveness. The PDA is a useful tool for PR practitioners to schedule meetings, and make sure they are not late for them. For people who work in the field or travel frequently, a PDA can save time and keep them or their team in touch with the office. Since the PDA allows for information on the go, people within the public relations profession will be able to be informed and have everything they need at their fingertips. By logging data and transmitting it electronically to the server database, paperwork does not pile up and work gets processed on a regular basis. Since Public Relations practitioners are constantly communicating there is easy access to it through their PDA. Through e-mail, synchronized address books and calendars, professionals and their employees can find each other quickly, schedule meetings, and act on business matters immediately. By using this new technology tool efficiently, they can create a sense of coordination, timing and rhythm so that their hectic days will be more organized.
