What to consider when purchasing a tablet for your SMB
Tablet computers have proven themselves too valuable for any company to ignore. Increased market competition has led to the availability of a wide range of devices that can benefit the employees of any sized organization, including small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).
However, there are a few areas that SMB owners will want to consider before investing funds in mobility and diving into a tablet deployment.
The first is the viability of a tablet program. An SMB owner will want to develop a use case for the device by identifying the needs of employees and determining how a tablet will satisfy them.
Also, some research will need to be done into the availability of enterprise applications. Third-party application markets are chock-full of offerings, but an SMB will have to sift through all of the time-killing games and nonsense applications to be sure there are some that can benefit the company.
The final consideration is how a tablet program will be managed. Decision-makers will want close oversight of employees' tablet use to ensure the devices are being leveraged properly and securely.
