With 105 million workers going mobile by the year 2020, tablets are quickly becoming mainstream for tens of millions of workers in fieldwork such as construction, oil and gas, and healthcare. However, companies are now running into a new problem: how to easily carry tablets while maintaining the productivity and efficiency these devices provide. Mobile workers cannot perform many of their usual tasks and carry a tablet at the same time.
A new line of hands-free, wearable tablet belt clips will help pros keep their computer tablets at their side while making sure they are also secure. RUNNUR products are hip-mounted to either a belt or to a separate heavy duty tool belt, providing the user with immediate access to their tablet at all times.
“There are so many things we love about this product, but time saving really jumps to the forefront of the benefits,” says Ohio building inspector Chris Bruce. “Never having to put the tablet down means it’s always with us, and it’s always there when we need it.”
The new products include:
• The Tablet Belt Clip is the first and only product of its kind. It allows the user to lock and carry any standard tablet on the hip, and then access it within one second when needed. Initially offered at $99.
• The Heavy Duty Tablet Belt is a combination of the Tablet Belt Clip with the addition of a heavy duty belt. It is designed for heavy use, and can be worn for long periods of time. Comfort is the main feature with this product as it is made with a solid foam core, and fits snuggly around the waist distributing the weight of the device. Initially offered at $149.
• The Universal SlingMount is the easiest way to turn any tablet case into an over-the-shoulder sling. The mounting plate is the same one used for the belt clip, making the whole system modular. Initially offered at $49.
