In a constantly changing business landscape, companies face challenges from every direction. The one thing they should be able to rely on is the hardware and software they use every day to get things done. Unfortunately, disruptive technologies can be just that for businesses: disruptive.
During a recent comparative study of popular devices, Prowess Consulting determined that the ARM® processor-based devices tested could not handle some of the most fundamental tasks, such as tracking changes in word processing documents or importing tables and graphics in spreadsheet files. On some devices, presentation software failed to play embedded video files.
If your business relies on productivity software like Microsoft Office, it’s important to make sure the software is fully supported by the devices your employees are using. The study compared performance between the Samsung® Galaxy Note® 10.1, Samsung® Chromebook™, Apple® iPad Air™, and the HP® ElitePad® 1000 G2. Among these devices, only the Intel-powered HP® device experienced no content decay.
By arming your employees with devices that fully and natively support the Microsoft Office suite, you’re preparing them for success and eliminating roadblocks before they can even be built.
