Are Tablets Right For Your Business?
Tablets have come a long way in just a couple of years. Many consumers and those in the consumer electronics industry found it easy to scoff at the iPad when it was first introduced in 2010, just three short years ago, thinking it was just a passing phase that wouldn’t gain any real traction.
The iPad wasn’t the first tablet to hit the market, but it was - despite some rather pessimistic forecasts - the first to ignite public interest in tablets. It became a bona-fide hit for Apple and has inspired legions of similar devices from rival technology companies.
Tablets are now making their way into households that heretofore had little interest in such technologies. Businesses have also embraced the tablet as a great mobile tool for growing and keeping in touch with their business.
Mobility is obviously the most attractive attribute of a tablet; it gives you mobile access to your email, contacts, calendars, and business tools. Laptops used to be the tool of choice for the mobile businessperson, but even laptops, compared to a tablet, seem cumbersome and ungainly. Tablets are sleek and portable and can go anywhere. Battery life is also a big draw; tablets tend to outlast most laptops, meaning you’ll actually be able to take advantage of that portability, rather than remain tethered to a power outlet.
But communication is really what it comes down to, isn’t it? Tablets have made us more accessible than ever before, giving us tools beneath our fingertips to keep in touch with friends, loved ones, employees, and business partners. If you’ve been considering adding tablets to your workplace, VoIP makes the perfect addition to your new devices.
VoIP, of course, stands for Voice over Internet Protocol. With the increasing popularity of smartphones and tablets, VoIP has become a popular option for businesses that need to keep in touch while they remain mobile. VoIP provides phone service over a simple Internet connection, and ties each of your devices together, meaning your calls get forwarded when you need them to, and you can check your voicemail anywhere.
Office telephone systems powered by VoIP can be accessed on your tablet, whether you’re at your desk or on the go, giving you the power to adapt.
Cloud based phone systems offer a great alternative to pricey mobile phone plans, letting you place calls using just your tablet’s wi-fi connection. With wireless Internet becoming more and more ubiquitous, this means you’ll be able to stay in touch without getting stuck in an expensive mobile plan.
At Broadview Networks, we’re committed to providing the world’s best cloud based phone systems powered by VoIP.
