The Use of Tablets In The Workplace Growing
Tablet computing is the fastest growing form of technology in history.
One of the technology surprises off the last few years has been the rise of the tablets computer. When these devices were originally floated, many experienced tech columnists dismissed their significance completely. However, the introduction of the Apple iPad has completely revolutionised the tablet, and led to their widespread adoption. Today, The Daily Telegraph reports that tablet computing is the fastest growing form of technology in human history, while The New York Times predicts that tens of millions of tablets will be in use in America’s workplaces by 2015.
Using tablets in the workplace can be an interesting and convenient way of offering an Internet solution to your members of staff. Although smartphones can still be an important part of a mobile and wireless solution to office work, many people prefer the larger screen size and increased specifications that a tablet computer offers. Not only are these devices technically superior to smartphones, but they are also designed to be extremely mobile as well. So you really get the best of both worlds with a tablet computer.
As modern broadband has delivered ever increasing bandwidth to consumers, using mobile devices in the workplace has become ever more feasible. Technologies such as Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) have made it possible for employees to even utilise their own tablet computers while at work. And modern Internet solutions and wireless solutions make it possible to access company networks 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Aside from the convenience of using tablet computers in the office, it can also bring benefits related to such elements of office life as presentations and appearing at trade shows. The flexibility and mobility of tablet computers makes them ideal for such venues, rather than relatively unwieldy laptops or the traditional flipchart, paper and pen.
Tablet computers have already established themselves as part of the modern office, and as bandwidth and Internet solutions improve further, this will become even more prevalent.
