Small business owners who are so inclined to purchase an iPad, will undoubtedly find clever uses for it to enhance worker productivity, reports PC magazine.
– iPad As A Presentation Device: The killer feature that’s tailor-made for the business set is the ability to connect the iPad to a video projector. This, coupled with iWork’s impressive Keynote presentation software, can make for stunning conference-room presentations.
– iPad As A Sales Tool: Sales people and real estate agents may be able to ditch their notebooks (which can weigh several pounds), for the featherweight 1.5-pound iPad to display numbers and spreadsheets to clients.
– iPad As A Portable Portfolio: Graphic artists, photographers, website designers, and anyone involved with the creation of digital art can use the iPad as a cool way to display work to clients.
– iPad As A Digital Sign-Up Sheet: Small stores and boutiques often create mailing lists to keep customers abreast of new products, services or announcements. A bolted iPad at the front register could replace the “sign-up-for-our-mailing-list” sheet, as the iPad’s on-screen keyboard is large enough to make typing easy.
– iPad As Multimedia Storage Device: Musicians and photographers tote an extraordinary amount of equipment, including the laptop which stores their creations. Although the 16 GB and 32 GB iPad models have a relatively limited storage capacity, the 64 GB offering is enough to hold at tons of high-definition photos and music files while significantly reducing the bulk associated with full-size notebooks.
