How to use iPads and tablets for business

March 5, 2021

If rumours are to be believed, Apple could be just weeks away from releasing its latest iPad, with March traditionally the time of year when they unveil the newest edition of the iPad Pro.

While that model is squarely targeted at intensive business use, even the garden variety iPad and other model tablets have a role to play in business.

So how can you use an iPad or tablet for business? Well in so, so many ways…

In the office

The iPad and tablet have long had a role to play in business when it comes to the office setting, but often they take a bit of a back seat to the traditional PC or laptop.

In recent years it’s become obvious that’s no longer the case, with iPads and tablets now capable of fulfilling a host of business tasks including working on the go, presentations and so much more.

 

Remote working

In today’s ‘remote working’ world, iPads and tablets are often the preferred device for a mobile workforce, and their manufacturers have recognised this with add-ons like styluses, and keyboards that include track pads.

Load your device up with apps like Microsoft Office and you now have a mobile tablet that functions very much like a laptop or PC but is far more lightweight and portable when it comes to remote working.

 

Presentations on the go

iPad Pros and a variety of other tablets all feature USB-C, which facilitates presentations on big screens. Meanwhile, if your particular model doesn’t have it, there are adaptors available to suit various ports.

As tablets are a lot more lightweight and convenient that laptops, it’s an ideal way to present without lugging round a host of tech.

 

Meeting room bookings

We’ve all been there, mid meeting, making a totally salient point when someone knocks on the meeting room door to ask how much longer you’ll be.

That’s where tablets can be a bit of a game changer courtesy of booking software that allows staff to book the meeting room for the length of time required.

 

Virtual meetings

Right about now we’re all pretty au fait with the idea of virtual meetings. Tablets including iPads have proved a bit of a fame changer in this space, allowing us to quickly join the latest Zoom meet from anywhere via a simple app.

 

Visitor management

In the era of COVID-19, it’s never been more important to track exactly who is on site at your premises and how long they’re there.

Again, this is where tablets come into their own as visitor management systems. Set up at reception, they can utilise QR-codes and questionnaires to gather that data that complies with:

  1. Workplace health and safety
  2. Contact tracing

In the commercial environment

In the more commercial environments of business, iPads and tablets also have an essential role to play, facilitating customer and staff feedback, taking orders, managing inventory and a whole lot more.

 

mPOS, check-in and digital displays

In 2021, the business credentials of iPads and tablets as mobile Points of Sale are well established. In fact, the tablet has helped revolutionise the worlds of retail and hospitality due to its sheer mobility.

That’s why you’re likely to find it in a host of service sectors, acting as mPOS, a digital menu, an advertising display or as a guest check-in kiosk.

 

Feedback

It’s now well-accepted that the employee experience directly impacts that of the customer. And if you want to know how your staff or customers feel about your workplace and the services or products you offer the tablet can be a truly insightful tool.

Positioned wherever you’re looking to gain feedback, it can be loaded with the right software and set up as a kiosk to gain an insight into exactly what your staff and clientele think.

 

Inventory management

Behind the scenes the tablet also plays a role, and this has become apparent in areas like inventory management and Buy Online Pickup in Store aka ‘click and collect’.

With data stored centrally in the Cloud, tablets allow staff to better facilitate the fulfilment of orders while accurately tracking stock through the supply chain.

The final word

We could add a whole lot of other use cases to this list of ways that iPads and tablets can be implemented. But the reality is tablets and iPads have become seminal tools throughout the business landscape.

The key is to protect and secure these devices well, depending on their use.
