An off-the-rack suit may fit fine, but imagine the difference if a master-tailor made you a custom suit. You just took the leap from clothing to couture. So what does that have to do with tablet PCs?
I don’t think anyone would argue that a tablet is a fine piece of technology, but in the hands of a “master-tailor” (solution provider), that device can fit its user just as spectacularly as a hand-made suit.
Consider the difference a tailored device can make. By understanding the work that users need to get done and the way in which devices will be deployed, manufacturers are able to build customizable tablets that anticipate and adapt to the environments in which they will operate. When you add software and peripherals that are fully compatible with x86 architecture and apps, integration with existing infrastructures becomes seamless.
Imagine how much happier your customers are when the solution is a custom fit: A sales associate can swipe a credit card through an attached POS reader on his tablet without ever leaving the customer’s side; a nurse can consult a patient’s records to avoid potentially harmful drug interactions, then sanitize the device before she moves to the next patient; an auto mechanic can run engine diagnostics, check for parts or submit an insurance claim right there in the garage. It’s like adding the perfect silk tie and pocket-square to complete the look.
Herein lies your opportunity. The future is customization in everything from phones to ads. When you identify the needs, not just the wants, of your clients, and build customized solutions instead of good enough, off-the-rack pieces, you’re adding value that customers will happily pay for.
And by the way, Enterprise and SMB customers alike are adopting tablets at amazing rates. Someone is going to capitalize on this opportunity. Why not you?
