(上記TOPIC、英語で意見を論理的に述べる技術とトレーニング第7章より引用)

Essay

 I really think office automation is very important and it has a lot of advantages.
 Firstly, it reduces business expenditure drastically. I think office automation is essential to success in business because company should cut as much costs as possible and labor is usually the highest cost for any organization. Therefore office automation is a real benefit since it can cut a great deal of cost.
 Secondly, it makes business operations efficient. Computers can do repetitive tasks much better than people because computers never get tired and never do what is not programmed but people do. Therefore it dramatically reduces the number of human errors. As human error in business can have serious consequences, office automation is a real advantage to eliminate human errors.
 Finally and most importantly, people can focus more on human relations. Research has often shown that many causes of stress can be ascribed to bad human relations. Therefore office automation is a real benefit since it can free up people to focus more on making human relations better.
 As I mentioned, I really think office automation is very important and it has a lot of advantages.
