Tablets advantageous for mobile salespeople
Tablets and netbooks are becoming increasingly popular for salespeople who are always on the move because they provide several advantages over desktop computers.
One of the biggest benefits of using a tablet is easy access to cloud-based storage systems. When information is saved on the cloud, it resides in an online database instead of a hard drive. This allows an employee who makes a sale on a business trip to save information while they are on the road and then access it at any other location, from any other device connected to the internet. The easy-to-use format eliminates the need for a flash drive to save important information and stores it where it cannot be lost or compromised by human error.
Netbooks and tablets also start up instantly and do not require the time that it takes a PC to turn on, allowing salespeople to access information as quickly as possible.
Another advantage is the ability to access the internet from nearly anywhere. By using a wireless network or wireless card, employees never have to worry about finding the nearest computer or Wi-Fi location to send an email or look up important information and statistics. Tablets make sales trips much easier because of the mobility they provide for the user.
