Does your organization use the iPad as a business tool? The iPad is rapidly turning into a serious work tool. Here's a chance to satisfy your curiosity about the device and what people are doing with it in their work. While many business “innovations” come and go, using the iPad as a business tool is something that will last. It’s effective and can help you boost productivity and work more efficiently while on the go. I will offer tips on how to use the iPad effectively for running a business as well as suggest the best and most powerful applications (“apps”) of the 350,000 that are available for increasing productivity.
