Physically and aesthetically pleasing, Tablets are replacing laptops thanks to their wide-ranging utility in an array of settings. Tablets are increasingly meeting the needs of business operators who want a more substantive screen than Smartphones provide while being considerably easier to handle and manipulate than cumbersome laptop technology. At the same time, Tablets are also coming equipped with keyboards allowing for greater ease of use and detailed information exchanges.

Demand among business owners for Tablets grew to 60 percent in 2015 and Tablets will only continue to grow in popularity this year and beyond, reports Forbes.com. Using a number of industry examples below, the sheer scope of Tablet usage becomes apparent.

Fleet Industry Discovers Tablets Are Essential

The very essence of a mobile workforce comes into play with fleet operations. With several new types of Tablets, drivers will have the ability to perform functions such as sales transactions, electronic signatures, e-receipts, and scanning, among other capabilities. When fleet businesses utilize Tablets, the cost savings are simply endless. A case in point is Chicago-based Heniff Transportation Systems, a company that saved over $1-million in its first year of adapting Tablets and they credited this technology for allowing its drivers and managers to be far more efficient and productive on the sales, delivery, management and safety fronts, according to according to Field Technologies Online, a well-known fleet industry publication.

Add to the mix fleet tracking and ELD mandate compliance and you have the ultimate multi-purpose device. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 4G LTE and its rugged version are durable and can endure getting tossed around on the road because of its shock and vibration resistance features. Spectacularly durable, rugged Tablets can inhabit dusty, wet settings without incurring damage. This latter characteristic means manufacturers are taking into account a recent study by Peerless Research Group that said Tablet buyers consider ruggedness to be the most optimal feature needed.


Ambulatory Care: Tablets Are Helping Save Lives

When lives are on the line ambulances are often at the center of the response to the crisis. As an operator of such services you know that your dedicated personnel encounter a wide variety of hazards while carrying out their essential duties. Everything from mud-slides, earthquakes, and sustained sub-zero temperatures need to be confronted for ambulatory professionals to do their job. Tablets are essential because of their superior mobility that allows for vital patient information to be shared en route to health centers. Medical problems can be addressed in real time as the Tablet can access cloud technology while people are being transported.

The elements listed above and a variety of other adverse situations means you need Tablet devices that are capable of functioning under adverse circumstances. Paramedics get in and out of ambulances with great frequency and their Tablets will be accidentally dropped, stepped on, or have substances poured on them. The Panasonic SKU Tablet will keep ambulatory staff in the fight by maximizing its highly-mobile and resilience qualities. Tablets enable your company to deliver people in the midst of these major challenges and conditions.

Retail Settings Are Being Transformed by Tablets

Perhaps nowhere else are Tablets serving to recreate business endeavors more than in retail spaces. According to Forrester.com, a popular research firm, 60 percent of North American consumers will own a Tablet in 2017 and will shop online. Once considered stale and stagnant, commercial stores benefit from this cutting edge tech technology in exciting ways, forging better customer relationships in the process. Because of their sleek and dynamic visual projections, Tablets can help customers imagine or experience the product before purchase. POS Tablets enable the more ready collection of customer data and software upgrades. The restaurant scene is being transformed because patrons are now able to order their food via Tablets upon arrival, prior to seeing a waiter. Tablets also encompass in-store advertising that can be programmed by store managers. This replaces costly signage that previously needed breakdown after each campaign. Productivity will increase by having the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 model integrated as part of your business. Its rugged counterpart will ensure that this key device survives the hectic and fast-moving retail environment, lessening the need to replace it, saving you additional money.

Construction Meets Increased Efficiency and Productivity, Thanks to the Tablet

Up until now, the construction industry has been bedeviled by on-site delays as project managers, subcontractors and architects require clarification from one another when it comes to interpreting blueprints. Tablet technology means the endless paper and attendant phone calls are increasingly a thing of the past due to the verifiability that Tablets provide. Remote monitoring can be upped to a new level as planners now keep abreast of daily progress thanks to cameras that are found on Tablets. Daily reports are made simpler thanks to apps that can be downloaded on this most versatile device. Everything from work time reports, safety reports, workflows and more can be realized through the Tablet. What's even more interesting is that smaller construction businesses are now saving between 1 percent and 5 percent in annual revenues when using mobile solutions like Tablets, according to a recent study in the annual Construction Technology Report. Rugged Tablets last longer and function under the most difficult of situations. The Panasonic SKU Tablet is versatile and rugged. This model will overcome severe stress of getting dropped or worksite vibrations.

Tablets Take Over

Tablets perform a variety of functions in incredibly diverse settings and circumstances. Their portability, storage and visual capabilities make it a device that has begun replacing the laptop and Smartphone in many businesses. To use an applicable saying the future is now for your company and Tablets. As technology advances, more new and innovative Tablets will hit the market and more business leaders across the country will soon discover their benefits.
