Connecting Multiple Monitors for Accounting Work

Benefits of Using Multiple Monitors

  • Increased accuracy.  Source documents or process documents are open on one monitor while the accounting software is open on the second monitor.  With all information displayed at the same time, accuracy increases.
  • Increased speed.  By not having to switch between screens, input speed increases.

NVS Quadro Video Cards

  • Designed for financial professionals. 
  • Allows all monitors to be connected to a single video card.  Using a single video card to run all monitors eliminates the need to manage drivers on multiple video cards.
  • Drivers and nView desktop software provide the tools needed to customize the monitor setup.
