5 Handy iPad Stands

December 31, 2018

If you've ever walked into the Apple store, anywhere in the world, you'll notice one very remarkable thing: It's always packed.

Part of the appeal, of course, are the products: Apple products are coveted.

But part of the attraction is the customer or user's experience. Apple stores are strategically set up in a way that not only invites the customer in but encourages them to use the products that are set up on the tables — including tablets, smartphones, laptops and more.

In brick-and-mortar stores, in fact, there is an awareness by retail brands that part of the customer experience is bringing the digital, "do it yourself" ethic into the shopping process.

This means that customers should be able to access digital technology such as iPads, tablets and even smartphones when gaining discounts using QR codes, ordering new items or learning about the specs of a product before purchasing.

In other words, the set up of digital interfaces in physical stores matters to the customer experience.

And to facilitate this integration, here are 10 of the best iPad and tablet holders that enhance the customer's in-store experience in the age of e-commerce.

The Acuvar 57" Pro Series is a tripod tablet mount that is built with a 3-way panhead and tilt motion, along with three aluminum alloy legs. The holder itself can be adjusted to accommodate any tablet or phone that is large enough to be "mini" tablet (aka the "phablet"), from 5.5 to 9.7-inch screens. The height can also be adjustable, ranging from its tallest height, at 57 inches, down to 26 inches, at 10-inch increments.

It's great for in-store promotions or experiential marketing that involves taking photos, uploading to photo sharing apps like Instagram or using Photobooth, since the tripod-like features help secure the tablet in place.
