- New Guide on Managing the iPad-equipped Workforce
Companies who have equipped their workforce with an iPad can now ensure they have a productivity and continuity strategy in place, following a guide produced by Iconnyx, the managed IT services/hosting provider.
With iPad applications ranging from sales presentations to scheduling and design, many organisations are now choosing to invest in iPads as the standard mobile IT hardware. Whilst welcome among end users, the tablets are often not incorporated within the IT management policy, with many companies not yet proactively planning for associated IT support and continuity issues.
The iPad Productivity Guide focuses on four key areas: security, continuity, application management and connectivity, ensuring companies get the most from their investment.
It prepares them for some common areas, most typically:
iPad loss and associated damage limitation - insurance of hardware and information security
Creating, synching and erasing iPad apps - maximising productivity, minimising cost
Virus and password protection - keeping the workforce working without disruption
"I think the iPad is possibly one of the best technology advancements ever created for the mobile workforce," said Tim Walker , MD at Iconnyx. "However, it is often neither a strategic business nor IT decision when a company distributes them across the workforce, meaning some of these issues fall by the wayside. It's our aim to ensure that companies enjoy all the benefits of the iPad design and applications, without experiencing the headaches. Some proactive planning will enable them to do this."
