New Kensington Products Support Tablet Deployments in Retail, Restaurants, Schools, Hotels and More

Enhance Business Productivity and Protection in Single Use-Multi User Environments with New Kensington Solutions for iPad®

Kensington, a worldwide leader in delivering smart. safe. simple.™ mobile accessories today announced a new collection of products tailored for use with iPads deployed in retail stores, restaurants, hotels, schools and other businesses. Sharing tablets in business for a single purpose – whether customer facing, employee facing, or point of sale transactions – demands unique solutions to efficiently protect investments.

 

Tablets are enabling more businesses than ever before to adopt Single Use-Multi User (SUMU) environments in their day to day practices. For example, consider all of the settings in which customers make a purchase – from small shops and large retailers to cafés and restaurant franchises – that now offer tablets as client facing service tools. It’s also increasingly common for field personnel to use a tablet to record information while out of the office, another form of SUMU. In educational institutions, tablets are used in the classroom or lab environments by students, from elementary school to high school. Airports, tradeshows, events and hospitality businesses, including hotels, gyms and spas, frequently use tablets as a kiosk to check in, sign up and to browse services.

“So many technology products today are engineered for the individual versus the shared business environment that we call Single Use-Multi User, or SUMU. It’s an area of the market that has a growing demand for solutions that safeguard mobile devices, without inhibiting the efficiency of user interaction in a business setting,” said Rob Humphrey, Director Security Products, Global Business Kensington. “Providing accessories that enable more productivity, a high level of protection and security is what we at Kensington have set out to accomplish with our products focused on Single Use-Multi User environments.”

The new Kensington SecureBack™ M Series of enclosures for iPad enhance the company’s existing line of accessories that support business deployments of tablets. Collections range from Kensington’s SecureBack Security Cases, Point of Sale Stands, SafeGrip™ Cases for Education, and multiple tablet power products. All of the designs are built to optimize device management across organizations, regardless of size.
