    When you consider all of its attributes, it’s no surprise the tablet is increasingly finding itself the star of modern workplace solutions. First of all, you just can’t beat the price. The simple tablet easily takes the place of expensive and cumbersome electronic hardware such as CPUs, laptops, scanners, and cameras (just to name a few); plus, updating software is as easy as downloading an app. And who could forget the tablet’s environmentally-friendly attributes—such as turning media like paper and ink into extraneous supplies? But perhaps it’s the fact that it can go wherever the user goes, instantly transporting information with the tap of a finger that makes the tablet the ultimate champion in workplace solutions. In fact, the only challenge a tablet seems to have is how tough you can make it and still enjoy its long list of conveniences.

    ScanSource was honored to be part of a wonderful project at the USS Wisconsin Museum in Norfolk, Virginia. Our partners IPConfigure and Axis Communications offered a great deal of support, providing the equipment and manpower to set up cameras and run cables as part of the Museum’s Ship Experience Access Room (SEAR). The SEAR provides a wheelchair accessible room full of large monitors for veterans and their families to get an in-depth look at several areas on board the Battleship USS Wisconsin, many of which are very hard to gain access to. Using pan-tilt-zoom security cameras on the ship and joysticks back in the SEAR, veterans can control the cameras to explore the spaces.

    So here’s the deal... I’m an “old” ScanSource guy (old in tenure, young at heart) but I’ve recently moved into a new role here. I’ve been pushing barcode scanners, mobile computers, printers... the whole POS/AIDC stuff for 10+ years and here I find myself on the Cisco Collaboration side of the business now.
