The Australian company Studio Proper have come up with a very elegant system for using an iPad in your business as an interactive information point for your customers without any risk of it being nicked or damaged.
The Wallee Lock is a secure metal frame in which you place the iPad and the whole thing is screwed onto a wall or wherever you want it to be, and can then be used by your customers to obtain any information you wish them to access without needing any assistance.
The iPad is an ideal device for point of sale and other info points,but up till now you had the real risk that it would be stolen if you left it unattended on a counter or wherever, but with this smart looking enclosure, that worry is past.
As Alon Tamir (Founder of Studio Proper says), “The lock system is the safest on the market. We’ve designed this enclosure using top quality materials so iPad users can confidently display the device and have a stream of customers using it without any risk to the device”.
This seems to me to be a pretty good description of the advantages of this device, and I can well imagine that it will encourage loads of shops and other public places to make good use of iPads in order to pass on useful information to their customers.
If you buy one of these wall mounts, you will also need to buy the Wallee Case and Wall Mount Disk too, so the real cost is rather higher than the price of this device alone – But probably still a very good investment when compared to the cost of an iPad or the time and cost involved in a human information point.
So, a useful; device for any business that sees the advantage in using iPads as information points.
And Apps as well:
Studio Proper have taken the trouble to find a whole range of iPad Apps that will be useful in the context of an iPad as a public information point, which you can find if you follow this link (click here).
They will happily send it anywhere in the world, so the dreaded “You live in the wrong country” syndrome wont be a problem.
