There are lots of things to consider when purchasing a device. And there are lots of options out there. The good thing is, Brittco will work great on all of them. Here are some of our opinions for things to consider before purchasing.
Battery Life: You should expect a minimum of 8-10 hours. This gets you through an entire shift without having to plug it in.
Keyboard: We typically recommended to have an attached keyboard and not rely on the "on-screen" keyboard. When typing a lot of notes, the keyboard seems to make this much easier. There are tablets that have removable keyboards which are quite nice or Chromebooks and laptops will do the trick.
Screen Size: While Brittco will work on every size screen, we find it works best on screens with a size of 10 inches or more.
Price: Expensive vs throwaway or somewhere in between. If the sole purpose of the device is for Brittco use, you should not feel the need to spend a lot on it. There are many tablets and Chromebooks from reputable brands for less than $200.
Warranties and Place of Purchase: This is your preference. Purchase from a source that will support you long term.
Wireless Capability: Will Wi-Fi access be a problem where your staff are using the device? You may consider purchasing a device capable of attaching a data plan from a cellular service provider. Or you can buy a "hot-spot" to attach to a device you already have. If you want additional information on this topic, ask us and we'll get you in touch with customers who have done this.
