Great Tablet PC Uses
Tablet PCs are recognized as an excellent alternative to the standard notebook computer because they allow for an entirely different method of interacting with the system. The ability to draw while adding handwritten notes is second nature to most of us, and this freedom is exactly what the tablet PC concept is based on. Applications are now being deployed for tablet PCs that dramatically increase the user's efficiency. Incredibly, these stories remain out of the public spotlight with one of the most useful applications being the integration of customized forms on a tablet PC to organize data collection.
For anyone employed in a design capacity, the ability to rapidly sketch a drawing while scribbling notes is critical to the process. Tablet PCs are now beginning to replace the time-honored "back-of-the-napkin" method that inventors have used for decades. This technique holds true for many diverse applications from kitchen remodeling to medical diagnosis and documentation. In situations where a customer is trying to communicate his vision to a contractor, having a drawing to share makes the job of verbally translating a concept into a concrete plan significantly easier.
Employing tablet PCs with customized data-entry forms has sparked a new industry dedicated to changing the way we handle data entry. The traditional manner in which parking tickets were written has evolved from entering vehicle information onto a pad of paper and leaving the ticket tucked under the windshield to snapping a picture of the vehicle with the expired meter in the background. This photographic evidence removes any doubt to the validity of the charge as opposed to the days when the word of the issuing officer could be questioned. This technology is being incorporated into law enforcement, allowing an officer to issue a citation without having to manually enter the information that used to be received verbally over the radio. The increased efficiency that is realized by the information being automatically entered on the tablet PC embedded citation also has the benefit of reducing the number of typographical errors that once plagued the system.
Integrated Data Collection
When Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, hundreds of thousands of homes were damaged or destroyed. Michael Centineo, director of the New Orleans Department of Public Safety, in reviewing the scope of work ahead of him, understood that trying to evaluate the damage using the traditional paper method was impractical. With help from Accela, New Orleans was able to compress years of work evaluating the health of these buildings into several months. Tablet PCs using a wireless (WiFi) network had real-time access to the entire building-inspection database. This allowed a building inspector to call up the historical data on any address and compare it to the present condition of the property. Updated condition reports were then saved with the necessary photographs to facilitate the rapid assessment of entire neighborhoods as compared
