Utilities Embrace Tablets
- Aug 3, 2021 9:21 pm GMT
Tablets are becoming popular options to traditional desktop and laptop systems. Use is growing as they adopt hybrid work models, and mobile applications continue to gain momentum. However, supply of these devices has been constrained, and prices may rise, so energy companies need to be cautious in their deployment.
As the pandemic spread, utilities needed to move workers out of the office and into their homes. In many cases, they required mobile hardware, and tablets fit the bill. The remote work model has proven beneficial to companies and their employees, so, it is expected to remain an option as energy companies call employees back into the office. Consequently, global tablet shipments for 2Q21 were up 4.2% to 40.5 million and increases seem likely in the near term.
