The more, the merrier! Zeta co-founder's WFH setup includes 5 screens, 3 cameras

Ramki Gaddipati has consciously kept a track of his screen-time and tried to reduce it.

Gaddipati says he cannot imagine a day without using his iPhone XS and MacBook even once.
Ramki Gaddipati, co-founder, Zeta, shares his tech list to stay on top of his game.

Limiting screen time
“During the past few months, I have consciously kept a track of my screen time and tried to reduce it. The remote working schedule has been hectic and I am now quite involved in chores. In fact, I have been engaging myself in non-screen-based activities more than I ever did in the last 15 years.”

Gadgets of choice
“I cannot imagine a day without using my iPhone XS and MacBook even once. The mobile device is not just a phone anymore — I can do most of my immediate business through it with ease. My laptop is the second most important device that balances portability and utility.”

Work tools
“Currently, I am enjoying my new noise-cancelling Apple AirPods, but I wish they had a better battery life. When it comes to work, Flock, Google Calendar, Gmail, Google Currents and Zoom keep me connected. Apps like Calendar, Checkvist and The North together make a great combination of tools that help me stay organised and get things done.”

Home office
“I have a well-equipped home office. I could never use it before the lockdown. Now it is put to good use. There are five screens on my table, three cameras, whiteboards, three sets of wireless earphones, two sets of speakers and more.”

Staying focussed
“If you want to be organised, the most important trait you must possess is punctuality. That is non-negotiable. I use Desktop Clock — an app to keep the time visible all the time. I don’t experience too many distractions at home. However, the sound of flights taking off or landing tends to distract sometimes. So, I rely on my AirPods and Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700. I have tried over two dozen headsets before settling with these.”
