More than ten million iPads were shipped around the world in the first quarter of 2020 alone. This is during a global pandemic when the economy was taking a hit. So while an iPad floor stand might not be the first thing that you think about as an essential item for your business, it’s usefulness and functionality make it an essential item for a lot of businesses in very different industries. Since each iPad floor stand is different, it is important to know what to look for before investing in one. Here are five tips to help you choose the right iPad floor stand for your business.
Consider Your Clients
You are a business and that means your first aim is to make money, preferably large amounts of it. Anything that you invest in needs to bring in returns. When it comes to choosing an iPad floor stand for your business, think about your clients. What will they be using the iPad for? If you are an educational institution and potential students need to do work (in the form of tests or psychometric testing), it will be very different from using an iPad as a Point-Of-Sale.
How old are they? What is the average height of your clients? A child will have a very different height to a middle-aged adult. Maybe your clients vary in height. In this case, you will need an iPad floor stand that allows its height to be adjusted.
Bear Your Branding in Mind
The second tip is to think about your branding. iPad stands come in a variety of colors and finishes. You will want to go for something that matches your business’s branding. If your business is a restaurant that specializes in fusion food and has a loud, colorful brand, the overall ‘look’ of the iPad stand that you end up choosing will be very different from that of an investment firm that has neutral and more ‘serious’ colors like dark blues and greys.
The Possibility of Portability
It might come across as glaringly obvious, but portability is something that you need to consider carefully. Some iPad stands are more portable than others. If your business travels to a lot of different events, you will need to buy an iPad stand that has a lot more portability than a company such as a specialist food store that uses an iPad as a Point of Sale at a fixed point. You will need to consider the weight of the iPad stand; whether it comes with a bag and how it can be folded up should you need to hit the road.
Effortless and Easy? Yes Please!
The next tip is to make sure that the iPad stand of your choosing is as simple to use as possible. Sure, you might be an absolute technology and equipment guru who can put anything together in a matter of minutes, but are your employees? What about the one day when you are not feeling well or have an emergency to attend to? You are not there to set up your iPad stand, and it could make things very difficult for your business. This is why it needs to be as easy and effortless to assemble as possible. With that in mind, it does not hurt to show each of your employees how to assemble the iPad stand. This way you have peace of mind knowing that it will be assembled no matter who is off sick.
The final suggestion is to contemplate your budget. One iPad stand can be as much as five times as another one in terms of price. You need to have a look at what you can spend realistically in terms of what you need. Ideally, an iPad stand that is in the mid-range of cost to your organization’s needs is what you should go for. If you can afford to purchase something more expensive, by all means, go big and invest. You won’t regret it. If you can’t do that, try and purchase something within your budget.
An iPad floor stand is an often overlooked yet invaluable piece of equipment for a lot of businesses. If you realize that you do need one, these tips will help you purchase the right iPad floor stand for your organization. Soon you will be enjoying the benefits of having an iPad floor stand!
