When it comes to picking the right tablet stand for your business, there are a wealth of factors you need to consider, taking into account things like how the device will be used, where it will be positioned and what you want it to do.

So let’s dive a little deeper…

 

How will your device be used?

Where will your iPad be located and how will it be used? If the device is going to be in demand all day every day (like at the Point of Sale) then the tablet stand will need to be fairly rugged and the stand will need to be secure.

 

What do you want it to do?

Will the iPad need to be portable, do you want it to rotate between users, or will it simply be fixed to a wall? Different stands lend themselves to different actions. Some can swivel, others rotate or even flip while some are perfectly suited to sitting on a counter in landscape mode.

 

Security

Will your iPad be in a position where it might be the target of theft? If so, you are probably looking for a stand with a lockable faceplate and a base that secures the tablet to a counter, desk or floor.

 

The look

Look is of course a big consideration, especially in commercial environments where the tablet might be customer-facing (like a kiosk, digital signage, visitor sign-in or mPOS). Fortunately tablet stands come in a range of colours and designs.

 

Budget

And naturally there’s that all-important budget to consider, especially if you’re after multiple stands. The good news is there are a range of price points to ensure you’ll find something to suit any budget.

But it does pay to remember, if your iPad is operating in a commercial environment, paying a little more for a durable cover can save you in terms of device replacement in the long run.

 

Now let’s get down to business, looking at the top five tablet stands for iPad in 2020.
