Not sure what to get Dad for Father’s Day? Here are some home office upgrades that will enhance his personal workspace.

A Sit-Stand Workstation

For dads looking to get into shape or just be more active while they work, the new Lotus™ Sit-Stand Workstation brings flexibility and movement to the home office. Standing burns up to 50 calories more a day than sitting, so the Lotus is the ideal addition for any dad who works frequently at his desk. The Lotus features Smooth Lift™ Technology so transitioning from sitting to standing and back again is effortless. Twenty-two different height settings and 17″ of vertical adjustment make the Lotus ideal for accommodating any stature. The Lotus also arrives fully assembled­­—no complicated instructions, no mounting. Just unpack and get started.

The Fellowes AutoMax™ Autofeed Shredder, initially designed for large offices, offers the ease and productivity of automatic shredding with a deskside personal shredder option. The 130C shreds up to 130 sheets of paper at one time, automatically. This includes paper with paper clips, staples, and wrinkles. Simply fill the bin, lock it and push the button. The Accufeed™ Technology shreds away while Dad gets back to other work.

How to Use Your Tablet for Business

With the growing trend of remote work and work from home start-ups, small business owners are turning away from the conventional desktop computer to mobile options in the digital world. A combination of laptop, smartphone and tablet defines the gear of the modern mobile entrepreneur.

The tablet especially has rose to become an essential work tool. A recent article in BaseLine magazine reports 81% of respondents said tablets increased their productivity, and cited an increase in productivity of 20% or more. Here are some ways to integrate tablets into your business.

Presentations

Tablets are more flexible than laptops for presentations and help maintain client engagement using touchscreen options.  Using a tablet case with versatile display capabilities, such as vertical or horizontal positions without having to remove the tablet from the case, allows for immediate and effective presentations.

Note-Taking

Meeting with a client for the first time may require copious notes to learn more about their business needs. Lots of non-tech features may be essential when first engaging with a new client. Since typing away while they talk may be distracting, consider using a tablet case with notepad at the ready. This feature lets you capture key information with good old-fashioned pen and paper while still being personally engaged with your prospect. A file folder built into the case also makes it easy to refer to key documents relevant to your client without having to search on your tablet. And a case with easily accessible business cards helps when ending the meeting.

Creating Critical Reports During Business Travel

The smaller size of tablets allows important documents to be created quickly and easily while in transit. Many business travelers select tablets over laptops for their compactness and lightweight portability. A case with a detachable Bluetooth keyboard makes typing convenient and fast in coffee shops and airports without plugging in. A protective case is also essential as a tablet can take a lot of dings on the road.
