The best iPad holders for visitor registration in 2021
It’s fair to say visitor registration has changed a lot in the past couple of years.
Between increasingly stringent workplace health and safety requirements and contact tracing, registering visitors at a workplace or site has never been more important.
In many locations the humble iPad is happily serving this role, using readily available software to facilitate visitor registration efficiently and affordably.
Why use an iPad for visitor registration?
Easy to use and economical, the iPad offers an ideal tool for visitor registration, and there is a wealth of apps specifically for this task.
The benefits of using an iPad include the fact the hardware can be easily upgraded when required, most people are familiar with using an iPad as it’s the most popular tablet in the world, an iPad is an affordable option compared to purpose-built hardware, and the devices tend to last.
Meanwhile, a host of software providers have visitor registration apps designed specifically for iPads, and now many of them include touchless sign-on via QR codes or barcodes.
An iPad holder is a must
If you are intending on using an iPad for visitor registration, a tablet holder is a must. An iPad holder will protect your device against damage, allow it to be positioned where you wish, and also offers the security that the device won’t be stolen.
But as you consider the right iPad or tablet holder for the job, there are a few things to bear in mind.
Things to consider when selecting a tablet holder
Will your device be positioned in a location where it could potentially be stolen? If that’s the case, you will need an iPad holder that offers a lockable faceplate, and a stand which can be affixed to a desk, wall or the floor.
The device will need to be accessible for guests looking to sign in. Consider where it will be positioned, the height that will suit and the prominence of the device, so it can’t be missed by visitors entering a location.
There are iPad holders that can be affixed to desktops, counters, and walls, while some can also be freestanding courtesy of floor stands.
If visitor sign-in involves taking a picture of the person entering a site, consider the angle of the device. Is it best that the iPad holder allows it to change angles or is there a standard position on a wall that might suit?
Any tablet holder in a high-use environment needs to be durable.
