10 Reasons Your Company Needs Tablets

1. Increased Productivity
Tablets are great for improving productivity. Devices like the iPad tend to be used both at home and in the office, and because they’re so mobile, accompany employees wherever they go.

The enterprise is ready and willing to adopt tablets. In fact, an increasing number of companies are bringing slates into the office. The idea is that employees will benefit from the tablet’s mobility and overall productivity features and, in the process, save the company some cash. It’s a concept that, upon further inspection, actually holds up well.

For many CIOs, the idea that tablets are an important component of the average company’s product mix isn’t surprising. However, some IT decision-makers still don’t see the value of tablets. And for now, they’re saying that slates like Apple’s iPad or Google’s Nexus 10 just aren’t worth adding to the office. For those folks, tablets are either too new or too consumer-focused.

But that’s a mistake. Tablets are ideal computer tools for enterprise customers. And the sooner the corporate world sees that, the better.
