AUSTIN, Texas — (BUSINESS WIRE) — August 1, 2014 — TouchMate today announced the availability of their TouchPad business tablet – and it isn’t your kid’s tablet! Through an OEM arrangement, the TouchPad is built on the latest Hewlett Packard technology and enhanced by TouchMate to provide a unique solution for the entertainment, healthcare, retail, and vending markets.
It’s All Work But Looks Great Doing It
The TouchPad is a sleek, highly functional tablet designed for the heavy duty requirements of a non-stop business. This professional-grade device is beautifully engineered with a 10.1 Multi-touch Display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass, a state-of-the-art Intel 4GB processor that is designed for 64-bit Windows, comes equipped with Wi Fi networking, and up to 256GB of solid state storage. It also has the interface capability to attach all the needed peripherals: the outer protective sleeve contains a second battery, a 2D Imaging Bar Code Scanner, and a Credit Card Reader. Printing can be done using a wired connection or the built-in Bluetooth 4.0 capability. Add to all that a 3-year Warranty that includes accidental breakage coverage and this is the best tablet on the commercial market. And if that wasn’t enough, this tablet can also be attached to a base and used in a fixed location when mobility isn’t necessary.
Mobile Software That Thinks Like a Desktop
With the state-of-the-art TouchPad Business ManagerTM software, this tablet provides a tool to prevent misuse, unauthorized application downloads, and enables remote monitoring and software maintenance. Operational controls prevent access to the Windows 8.1 OS and browser, as well as protect against tampering at the start of the boot process. A watchdog feature will shut down idle applications after a management-defined window of time to prevent unauthorized access in the event of an accidentally abandoned tablet. Internet access is limited to only those sites authorized by management to prevent non-business use. Should there ever be questions about usage or statistics, this software maintains a log file that tracks all activity. And for those companies looking to monitor, maintain and remotely control their tablets online, we offer an optional Remote Management Application which provides a parameter-based method to install or update software to a TouchPad in an unattended mode.
One Tablet, Many Jobs
TouchMate Chief Technology Officer David Ellsworth points out, “You aren’t just getting a tablet, you are getting a business solution!” This high-powered mobile device empowers employees in a wide range of work, from food service and ticket sales to patient information and visitor management. We have seen theaters and event venues employ such devices to create a mobile food and beverage sales force, as well as retail stores who are now able to engage directly with the customer pre-sale to help boost revenue. Healthcare organizations no longer need to have employees push hundred-pound carts to patient’s rooms or carry awkward, bulky laptops. These 1.5 pound tablets allow all medical staff the flexibility of mobile EMR with none of the inconvenience.
