3 Benefits of a Tablet for the Office

b2ap3_thumbnail_Tablet400_20130306-044842_1.jpgMany tech-savvy professionals have labeled tablets merely "content consumption" devices. This may have been true initially, but now with the productivity applications that have been developed using cloud computing, tablets can now be used to do more than just watch videos and surf the web. In this respect, the mobile computing revolution has finally made it to the workplace. Employers and employees alike are beginning to utilize mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones as a compliment to their standard office technology to improve productivity.

Whether your company is searching to introduce mobile devices as a supplemental extension of its employees' workstations. They are being used as a valuable cog in the processes of a retail, distribution, or service enterprise, instituting mobile devices can provide an organization with three valuable benefits.

Mobility
The most obvious benefit is that the use of mobile devices allows the people within your organization the freedom to move away from the confines of their desk and do more in more places. Typically, laptops and netbooks have been the tried and true method for taking your work on the go. Tablets are generally between 5"-to-10" diagonally, making them highly portable. Tablet manufacturers traditionally have had a problem marketing these products to business professionals because they have a tendency to be more of a distraction-enabler than a productivity device.

Ecofriendliness
Tablets reduce the amount of paper an individual needs or uses. By having a portable digital interface to pull up reports and forms up on to, it effectively deteriorates the need for printed material. Software developers from all over the globe are using cloud computing platforms to develop software that can allow people to use tablets much in the same way as they would traditionally use their notebook computers. So while tablets often don't have the capabilities to run legacy software applications, cloud computing allows tablet users to be more productive with only a Wi-Fi internet connection or a data plan.

Extended Battery Life
Possibly the most prevalent characteristic of the tablet PC is how long the battery lasts. Notebook computers have long been maligned for their lack of battery power; which ends being a complete and utter detriment to the amount of productive work an individual can do on the device when they are unplugged. Most tablets' batteries lasts twice as long as the batteries that come equipped with most notebooks. This lets a user go further, do more, and not be hindered by a device that loses battery life quickly.

There's a good chance that your office has changed the same way many offices have over the last couple of years, with more of your staff owning smartphones or tablets. A comprehensive mobile device management solution may be a benefit for your company if you want to make sure your critical data remains in the hands of the people you trust.
