Smart phones and tablets are a great way to boost the productivity of your gas engineers. Buying a tablet for yourself is much easier than buying devices for a whole team, which is a lot more expensive. You need to be sure that you're buying the best tablet for your gas engineers while still keeping the overall cost down.
The major hesitations when deciding whether your business should invest in tablets tends to be:
- Engineers with 'fat thumb symdrone'
- Engineers will break them or loose them
- Our older engineers won't be able to use them
These are pretty natural concerns. While these concerns may be true, our tips below should help you pick the the best tablet for gas engineers.
Bigger is better when buying for 'fat thumbs'
If your engineers have fat thumbs, don't buy smart phones or small tablets. Buy larger tablets. It'll make it easier for them to use and reduce their frustrations when they can't tap on that tiny button. While I love tablets like the iPad mini, i'd much rather use a tablet the size of an iPad Air for work - your engineers will too.
Don't cheap out, buy the best tablets you can
Is the best tablet a rugged one engineers wont break?
With so many great tablets available on the market it can be difficult to know what the is best tablet for gas engineers.
Here are our best tablet choices for gas engineers:
5. Asus ZenPad 3S 10
An excellent option that's not quite as pricey as its Sony and Samsung counterparts, the Asus ZenPad is a durable tablet with a hi-resolution display. That being said, the ZenPad is extremely powerful and features a beautifully bright display.
Another from the Galaxy line, this has a lighter, thinner design with an excellent screen. Exceptionally powerful and impossibly thin, this is a great, slick version of Samsung's premium tablets. Its downfall is the mediocrity of its camera, so if you need your engineers to take quality images while out and about, this might not be the one for you.
