3 Benefits of a Tablet for the Office

It wasn't too long ago where the tablet computer was virtually dismissed as a device simply for multimedia and content consumption. There is currently an appreciable shift in the way people use mobile devices and tablets, in particular. Productivity applications housed in the cloud now make tablet use for business a tangible idea; or at least more tangible than it was a couple of years ago. The utilization of mobile devices in the office is growing rapidly as devices with better hardware become available.

Several small and medium-sized businesses (SMB) are looking to integrate mobile devices as a supplement to the IT infrastructure that is already in place, while professionals in the retail, distribution, and service industries are also considering how tablets and other mobile technology can benefit their business.

You can't mention mobile devices without talking about mobility. Tablets are, for the most part, small, lightweight, and easy to use. They allow members of your organization the freedom to leave their workstation and still have the capabilities to collaborate with other members, which allows them to make better use of their time. Traditionally, the use of notebook computers have allowed employees to work on the move, but tablets, by being smaller and just as dynamic present an alternative means of keeping your staff productive whilst on the move.

Tablets allow organizations to reduce the amount of paper they use. The portable digital interface allows you to send reports, take notes, and do other clerical duties that would typically be done while sitting at your desk. With the advent of cloud-based applications, productivity doesn't have to be hindered while members of your team are away from their desks. Tablets often come with a built-in wi-fi capability or allow for the user to set up a service plan. This allows workers to take advantage in the numerous cloud-based apps available through the devices requisite app store. So while tablets don't often have the capabilities to run legacy software, they still allow for necessary functionality that are mandatory for your average business professional.

Extended Battery Life
One of the most important characteristics of a tablet over a notebook (or other mobile computing device) is that the battery on a tablet tends to last almost twice as long as other mobile computers. This is indispensable for people that do a great deal of traveling or are forced to be away from a power supply for long. Companies that offer a service, such as landscaping, can now use tablets, fitted with a credit card reader, as a mobile register. This allows companies that may have had to wait for their revenue, to get paid on the spot every time.

Tablets are changing the face of computing, and can present substantial productivity benefits for your enterprise. A high-end tablet has the computing power necessary to do what you need to do from anywhere. All that power from a device that is so small it may, depending on the model, fit in your pocket.
