So, you’ve purchased a mobile tablet, you’ve downloaded the necessary software and now you’re looking to deploy it to best effect within your business. The next thing to consider is: which stand will suit your needs?

This is one of the questions we’re often asked, so let’s take a walk through each industry, the best tablet stands available to suit the likely tablet use in that sector, and some of the features that each stand offers.

Instore retail

Tablet stand suggestions for every sector Retail and Fashion

In retail, tablets are deployed in a host of different ways including:

• Mobile Point of Sale
• Mobile sales associate tool
• Customer loyalty kiosks
• Digital product guides
• Customer feedback

Effectively that means you’ll either be looking for a tablet stand that sits on a countertop or in the case of a kiosk might be secured to the floor.

Additional features to look for in a retail tablet stand include security, durability and perhaps the ability for the tablet to swivel from one sales associate to the other, or alternatively flip so that the customer can see the screen.

The Fusion

Due to the rough and tumble nature of the school environment, the absolute pick of the tablet stand bunch would have to be the Fusion.

The metal faceplate and durable ABS plastic case ensure the tablet is protected, while the lock feature protects it from theft and vandalism.

Fusion offers a range of different mounting options, making it ideal for classroom desks, library counters, or even as a freestanding kiosk where visitors can check in.

Like retail, the hospitality sector is being transformed by technology, with tablets often employed as Point of Sale and order pads.

In this environment, durability should be a key feature of any stand, but budget may also be front of mind.
