Small businesses continuing to embrace the iPad


A recent study conducted by The Business Journals found iPad usage has nearly quadrupled over the past year for small businesses, with 34 percent of small businesses adding iPads as part of their infrastructure.

"Our research has shown that for SMB owners, productivity and efficiency, which used to be the central benefits of technology, are now declining in importance compared to accessibility," said Godfrey Phillips, vice president of research at The Business Journals. "Now, it's crucial that business owners have access to their business information and data, anytime and anywhere."

With businesses needing access to their information everywhere, it opens them up to cybersecurity risks. Due to the potential of a security breach, a strong professional liability insurance policy is something that all business owners should consider.

Many of these companies integrating iPads are successful, long-established businesses, having lasted an average of 28 years and experiencing annual sales of more than $9 million, according to The Business Journals.

Mike Pugh, vice president of marketing at j2 Global, told The Street a few reasons why all small businesses need an iPad, which include the ability for executives to do business on their own terms, as well as create presentations on the go.
