Online marketing company fishbat is psyched about OS X Yosemite and the endless advantages it poses in a business environment. Justin Maas, vice president of client relations at fishbat, outlines only a handful of these perks right off the bat.

At the top of his list is the new bird’s eye view of calendar appointments and notifications from apps and other services, such as LinkedIn.

Yosemite makes the calendar much easier to use. It's easier to view notifications like messages and new connections on on LinkedIn, something that greatly benefits companies that rely on networking and generating leads.

Signing documents on your trackpad like you would on a piece of paper is another leg up. According to the VP, this works wonders for people doing business with a client that lives in a different area: "It helps boost the contracting process and prevents delay.”

Safari in Yosemite has a new Tabs View that lets you stay more organized. Having too many tabs open in a web browser can cause confusion and frustration, making the Tab View ideal for spotting everything that you're currently working on, at any given time. The feature even groups separate tabs from the same site in individual stacks.

Probably one of the best features to enhance workflow in an office environment is Yosemite’s ability to sync activities across devices.

You can use this to start writing an email on your iPhone and finish it on your Mac or another iDevice. Business owners and traveling employees will find this to be a great convenience. Apple calls it Continuity, and it’s poised to change the way we get work done on the go.

Apple further includes a hotspot feature that lets you get Internet from your phone. With Yosemite you can use your iPhone as a hotspot for your MacBook or even your iMac or Mac Pro and gain Internet access when the office network is down.

“These updates could help boost productivity within a company. Technology is an essential part of life. All businesses should adapt to new technology in order to stay current and competitive," Maas concludes.

Yosemite has many other great advantages poised to revolutionize the way we get work done on our computers, including a new Phone feature that allows users to take calls on their Mac if their iPhone is in a different room (pictured at the very top).

A Mac can also be used to send and receive SMS and MMS with Yosemite, which means you don't have to take your hands off the keyboard (and mess up your workflow) when your receive texts from your friends.
