Report: Employees introducing their bosses to business uses for tablets
Small businesses are using tablets in innovative ways, sometimes with employees leading the way toward more high-tech operations.
A recent NorthJersey.com report highlights the impact of tablet computers at New Jersey small businesses, ranging from spreadsheets that track sales to applications that act as digital cash registers.
Interestingly, the advent of tablet computers has led to a more open format of business operations in which tablet-owning employees are introducing small business owners to technology that could help streamline their overall operations.
"The benefit for businesses is that the portability and anytime, anywhere accessibility of tablet computers enhances productivity," Warren Finkel, president of New Jersey IT company ACE IT, told NorthJersey.com. "There are also cost-saving benefits because employees are using their personal tablets; however, businesses will still have to invest in the security of these devices."
On a national level, small businesses have been increasingly drawn to the portability and high-power capacity of tablets. Recent research conducted by small business cloud provider Intermedia found tablet adoption among its clients has increased 102 percent since May.
