What Are The Best Tablet Apps For Business In 2015?

The Tabby Awards and ARC are on the lookout for the best tablet apps for business in 2015.

I see it in the airport. At the coffee shop. On the subway and the bus stop. Eventually, I see it at the office and even on the couch at home.

What is it? Snazzy looking people in suits, toting tablets—sometimes with keyboards attached—doing business just about everywhere they go.

In the history of corporate America, this is a fairly new phenomena.

Enterprises—large organizations with a lot of bureaucracy, corporate governance and IT support—tend to be extraordinarily slow when adopting new technology. I have talked to many leaders of enterprise mobility over the years and the running joke that we have is that enterprises tend to be at least 18 months behind the times compared to consumer adoption. Sometimes quite a bit longer.

It’s funny because it is true.

Tablets—like the BlackBerry that came before them—seem to be uniquely suited to business operators. The briefcase stacked with papers has been replaced with the powerful and lightweight tablets, carried under the arm from office to office, containing all the projects, presentations and secrets of the corporate world. An iPad can help a businesswoman easily conduct a presentation and almost instantly display information from its screen to a monitor with AirPlay. A tablet like the Surface Pro 3 is perhaps the greatest blend of PC and tablet computing ever made, with all the unique characteristics of each. Android tablets become supplemental devices, easy for reading and communication, digesting the days work on the train ride home.

The Tabby Awards Presents The 2015 Tablet Business Apps Awards

In our ongoing partnership with The Tabby Awards, ARC is pleased to present the competition for the best tablet business apps of 2015.

Business and enterprise app developers can submit their tablet apps for The Tabby Awards through the contest website. Final nominees will be chosen by a panel of judges and winners will be announced later this year. The panel of judges will be chaired this year by Carson Conant, CEO of Mediafly out of Chicago.

Previous winners of The Tabby Awards for Business include Autodesk, Adobe, Box, DocuSign and SAP.

In addition to the fourth annual Tabby Awards for Business, developers this year can submit smartphone apps for business to The Mobby Awards. This is the first year that The Tabby Awards have held a smartphone-optimized section of the contest.

A reminder: Voting for the consumer version of The Tabby Awards is still in progress. You can check out the full list of nominees here and vote for the best tablet apps and games at The Tabby Awards website until June 14th.
