Deploy apps in a business environment with iTunes

Certain of our clients need to install apps on their own when they receive our iPads, and sometimes for bigger apps such as PowerPoint, it can be way faster to bulk install apps onto multiple iPads using either Apple Configurator or using iTunes, which is a more universal option for most people. 

However, Apple has removed the app installation functionality in the latest iTunes update, which can really disrupt certain business users. According to Apple:

Apple offers Volume Purchase Programs and Apple Configurator on Mac to help enterprise environments manage and mass-deploy apps on iOS devices. But certain business partners might still need to use iTunes to install apps.
 

Fortunately, Apple as released a special version of iTunes which restores this removed functionality. To download it for your Mac or PC, visit

https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT208079

If you've already installed a newer version of iTunes, you can download this version of iTunes on your Mac, PC 32-bit or PC 64-bit* and run the installer. After installation is complete, you can continue to deploy apps with iTunes.

You won’t be prompted to download new versions of iTunes after you install this version. Manually update to the latest version of iTunes when you're ready to upgrade.

Infinite looping of videos using the iPad

Here we demonstrate using our iPad rentals to loop videos for branding and event purposes. The app we use is called LOOPYLOOPY, and is easily the most user friendly and stable app we've tested. 

As part of our iPad rentals in Singapore, we offer app and file pre-installations for a low fee. By passing your files in advance of your rentals, you eliminate any potential problems and save on a lot of time which you can use to focus on other aspects of your event and business.

Helping out TOUCH Young Arrows Run & Raisin' 2014

Run & Raisin' 2014, is a charity run and carnival organised by TOUCH Young Arrows, a service of TOUCH Community Services, serving children aged 6-12 years old from low-income and/or single-parent families across 18 TYA clubs in Singapore. 

We got to hear about this event from a friend and she sought our help in sponsoring iPads for their recruitment drive on 5 - 6 April and 20 - 22 June at Marine Parade Central, TOUCH Centre and 112 Katong respectively. We are glad that we did.

The funds raised from the event went towards helping some 400 children who come from low-income and/or single-parent families overcome challenges in their lives.

We believe in giving back to society, just like how we received help and support from clients, media partners, reporters, bloggers, family and friends in this 2 year old startup. We are now the leading iPad rental company in Singapore, providing the best value on our rentals and great customer service.

It is our goal to continue to provide such value to all our partners, and will be looking forward to assist any charitable organisation who needs our iPads for their events.

In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’(NIV Acts 20:35)

Advantages of Using Guided Access on Your iPad Rental

Available in iOS 7, Guided Access allows for access only to particular applications a user has been granted access o. Users can set up their iPads so they can’t leave apps, but have full control of the app features they wish to access. As a result, there are several advantages of using Guided Access on an iPad for the benefit of the specific users.

Schools

The iPad is increasingly being used in the classroom for aiding learning. Guided Access allows teachers to ensure that their students only have access to the intended apps. They can also restrict app use to certain sections of the iPad screen. Whether the students are taking an exam through an iPad, reading a textbook or even using an app that is educational in nature, Guided Access can be used to restrict them from playing irrelevant games, browsing online or even trying to cheat on exams.

Parents

Parents can use the Guided Access feature on iPads to restrict and control what their kids can be able to do from their iOS devices.

Museums

Visitors can use the museum app available on the App Store to have a tour of the specific museum in question. The museums can also restrict what their users or visitors can access from the iPad given to them.

Businesses

iPads are popular for use by businesses. Restaurants can deploy apps to take orders, and employers can use the restricted access feature to monitor their staff while they are away to ensure that they only use the iPad for the purpose it was solely bought or rented for.

Autism

Children or students with autism can gain more attention and focus through the use of Guided Access. For instance, they can use the Proloquo2go app without leaving the app open when done or leaving it while it is in use. Alternative methods of communication such as AC (Alternative and Augmentative Communication) are effectively used in problem areas with restriction of access.

Public Use

The Guided Access feature also allows the iPad to be used in a public place, for example in kiosk mode when you rent our iPads. Users can only use the app you want them to use, and cannot move onto irrelevant apps.


At TouristPads, we rent iPads in Singapore for use by businesses. We will deliver the iPads to the venues where they will be used and collect them afterwards. Contact us today for more information.

Here is a Secret that is Helping a Company Get 10,000 Customers

Armin Ghazi had a business in North Carolina known as Monkey Joe’s Parties & Play. He opened a practice for email marketing and IT consultancy services after setting up an account with MailChimp for the business. It happened that the business was in Armin’s blood and it wasn’t long before he started providing consultancy services to a franchise in Nashville.

In order to grow their list, he suggested that they use the iPad Chimpadeedoo application about one year ago. Although they had been using the MailChimp app to engage with their customers, their Signup system was not good enough. Normally, it involved guests filling out dead-tree waivers for their kids who would be playing, at the check-in counter. At the end of the waivers, was space to enter email addresses.

Approximately, 40% to 50% filled out their email addresses, half of the collected addresses were entered into a spreadsheet and of the data in soft copy, about 25% to 50% had syntax and misspelling errors. It took at least a week to get guests into the system. Moreover, they were never told their email addresses would be used for marketing.

The Monkey Joe’s Parties & Play in Nashville purchased an iPad, set up a sign-up skin that is customized for their business, bought a Griffin stand as well as a Se-Kure security tether for use on the same platform. Later in mid 2011, they opened another branch in Nashville with an iPad running the Chimpadeedoo app. It eliminated the need for data entry in the business; this is one reason the staff love the app.

According to Armin, they love using their iPad app because it is more effective and reliable than their old system. And best of all, it is loved by all stakeholders. In December 2010, when Monkey Joe’s was first opened, the number of their customers approximated 250. With their new implementation of the iPad app, they set a goal to get 5,000 customers by mid 2011. Thanks to Chimpadeedoo, they realized their goal earlier, in April.

By September, they had 7,500 customers and hit 10,000 in December. According to Armin, inclusion of a coupon in every email campaign is the way to go as it improves business-client interaction. With the iPad app Chimpadeedoo, the Monkey Joe’s had been able to attain 10,000 customers subscribed to them in just a year.

How iPads are Used in Clinics and Hospitals to Empower Patients

How iPads are Used in Clinics and Hospitals to Empower Patients

Various companies in Singapore and the rest of the world have embraced the use of mobile devices in meeting business needs, setting the expectations of customers and ensuring that employees follow the rules and procedures in the workplace to the latter. Recently, there have been efforts to implement technology to improve health care outcomes and reduce costs.

It is crucial to define not just the kind of care a patient expects to receive, but also, what is entailed in the road ahead to recovery. Otherwise, the healthcare process dwindles to poor outcomes, high unwarranted variations, high costs, long stays in hospitals, dissatisfaction of both the patient and the health care provider as well as reduced predictability.

IPads can be used to develop or access interactive medical programs with detailed descriptions of clinical milestones, treatment plans, list of activities to engage in ‘To Do Lists’, educational materials, problem identification and generation of reports on a patient’s progress by the healthcare provider.

The Healthcare Problem

Just like any other practice, the reimbursed Medicare funds are usually much lower than the actual cost of care in cardiac surgery. The value of medical care is greatly affected by high unwarranted variations in the operating rooms, patient floors as well as the intensive care units.

The iPad Solution

A review of the technology-based iPad health care model indicates that the iPad program is robust, result-oriented and provides results that are predictable for many patients. Therefore, with results that are predictable, health care providers can set expectations for patients to enable them participate in the program and share critical information with them. As a result, the providers are forced to adhere to the program in order to attain the expected positive results.

With the use of the iPad, patients can access the following:

Strength Modules – this feature allows the provider to set the patient daily expectations such as the physical activities they are expected to engage in. For instance, the breathing exercises they should indulge in as well as walks and duration. Furthermore, the patients can access self-assessment tools through the iPad program to help them report mobility and pain to their provider or doctor.

Modular Educational Materials – patients have access to on time and relevant materials regarding their medical conditions, surgery, and expected daily care activities.

Plan of Stay – depending on a patient’s medical condition, surgery and status of their functional abilities before visiting the hospital, this feature can be tailored to meet the needs of individual patients. The plan feature includes daily ‘to do’ lists and clinical milestones for patients in accordance with their events for recovery and clinical status.

Planning of Recovery – the iPad app for Medicare also provides patients access to critical information on how they should care for themselves upon discharge from the hospital and may include activity, exercise and diet restrictions, caring for wounds, potential complications, follow-up appointments and even how to spot them.

How the iPad is Helping Top Photographers and Artists Show Their Work

Technology has changed the way things used to be done in the past. More people in Singapore are now finding the latest technology appropriate for making their work not only easier, but also for saving huge amounts of time. Photography is one of those categories that have undergone transformation in a big way with the release of the iPad. In the old days, people would have to call a cameraman to take photos or simply go to a photo booth. This was expensive and time consuming until the recent developments in technology. People can now use different gadgets like the smart phone, buy or rent iPads or the digital camera to take photos.

The iPad is one of the gadgets that technology introduced to try and make photography more interesting. The iPad can be used by photographers in Singapore and the rest of the world to show their portfolios to art buyers. This has seen the photographers receive a hearty reception from their clients. In the past, one would have to put all his collections in one printed portfolio with acetate sleeves. This would often lead to glare problems as someone would try and adjust their viewing angle, which was not only time wasting, but also inconvenient if many people wanted to view the portfolio at the same time. But with the introduction of the iPad, it’s easy to adjust the viewing angle as well as allow many people look at the portfolio simultaneously.

The other beauty about using the iPad to showcase photography or artwork is that the photos and art pieces can be reviewed before hand to ensure they are what you are intending to show your art or photo buyers. The shuttersnitch is one great application that allows wireless shooting into the iPad and it has an amazing way of organizing the shots, sharing them as well as rating them. The new Photosmith app allows you to review images you imported from other places and organize them into a single collection. The iPad rental services can help you to create a slideshow of photos you want to show your clients.

At touristpads.com, it is our specialty to rent iPads to our customers who find purchasing them expensive. We have the latest iPad air as well as the iPad 4 in the market. The iPads have a lot of features like a retina display, which is breathtaking for photographers, security cases, kiosks and accessories.

Tips On Using The iPad For Email Marketing

email marketing.png

Communication has evolved over the years and so has the way people in Singapore market their products and services. Marketing has changed with technology compared to the old times when one would have to place an ad on newspapers or directly market their products from door to door. The costs involved with this kind of marketing were simply outrageous.

If you had an urgent message to send to a marketing branch miles away, you had to use a fax machine or simply send a letter that took days to reach the receiver. But all this changed with the introduction of the internet which made things much easier. Email was one of the blessings that came with the internet. It allowed one to engage with someone miles away as well as send messages in a matter of seconds.

Email marketing in Singapore was also born in the process. This kind of advertising is not only less intrusive compared to television ads, but it’s also less expensive. Email marketing requires you to collect potential clients' email addresses. For a more targeted approach you can also collect the demographic details in the process of collecting the email addresses. The demographic information can help you schedule email campaigns based on the available data such as age, gender or location. This form of marketing is more efficient as it’s more focused on individuals rather than a mass. This way you know that the right message has reached the right people.

The iPad can be used for email marketing in a number of ways. Because purchasing these gadgets can be quite expensive, there are iPad rental companies in Singapore and other countries across the world. One of the ways is by using the Chimpadeedoo application which collects email addresses from various sources and keeps them on the iPad locally, even when it is offline. When the gadget gets back online, the app pushes the email addresses collected to the list in Mailchimp if one exists. You can customize the background with your favorite themes and even pick your own fonts.

Group email is one of the best email marketing applications and it comes with many features. It helps you manage and read your emails on the iPad. It comes with a user interface, distribution list creation option, syncing mails, sending professional emails to groups and many other features.

At Touristpads, we rent iPads for email marketing and other different events your company may be having in Singapore. We provide you with the latest iPad 4 and iPad air which comes with a retina display, security cases and accessories to make your email marketing much easier. At Touristpads, we deliver to and collect from your company at your convenience.

Businesses in Singapore have not been left behind either with the mobile technology driving it in terms of growth and business processes. The iPad has changed a lot in businesses; not just how they conduct and hold events, but also conferences and meetings. 

The business world has adopted the use of iPads to run various business functions.

The iPad comes with various features that allow businesses to easily hold meetings and conferences. 

With the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Singapore that is dedicated to providing business with access to modern state-of-the-art facilities for events, conferences and meetings, companies have no reason not to take advantage of the many features and benefits that come with renting iPads for such events such as improved engagement and interactivity between the companies, customers and guests.

During meetings, delegates can interact through social media platforms on the iPad like Facebook or the Facetime app. Company videos, maps to locations of meeting rooms and venues can all be accessed by the delegates through the Podium Timer HD or Dropbox and Maps applications, respectively.

Using the iPad for Education

Technology is continuously improving and evolving. It has really impacted how things are done including how students are now learning. The rapid and constant pace of change in technology has continued to create opportunities in classrooms for both teachers and students. The iPad became so popular in Singapore schools soon after it was released.

The students can now have a great access to multimedia content unlike in the past. Courses are now more available as one can join an e-learning platform. The iPad has become a favourite due to its inbuilt apps and features. Most schools have incorporated it in their courses to help the students thrive in the 21st century. Although these gadgets are expensive, many companies rent iPads to schools and businesses in need of them.

The iPad comes with a document camera with the stage interactive whiteboard that helps the student record what the teacher says in a simple manner. If you have to review any academic topic that you aim to give to your students, you can easily use the Quizlet app which is a free application. It allows the teacher to create flashcards for his students. An optional teacher account is also available with this application. The teacher can also use visuals on his projected iPad. The visuals can be used for presentation purposes.

iPads also come with interactive textbooks which the students can easily access. The teachers who have a difficult time choosing people to get the projects done, can use apps on the iPad which make the work easier by choosing names randomly and ensuring a balance. The iPad may also be used by students with disabilities as it has features that they can easily use. Some schools allow the students to carry the iPads home with no restrictions.

How to Use an iPad for Your Next Business Event

Technology has continued to evolve over the years and touches almost every aspect of our everyday lives. Thanks to the World Wide Web, information is easily available. But despite the way technology has influenced our personal lives, the Singapore business world has also revolutionized beyond what was expected in the past few decades. The advancement in Communication and information technology has entirely changed the pace and the face of businesses generally. As information now travels faster, the world now seems smaller and this has large implications on how we go about conducting business. If any business as of now has not embraced technology then it might suffer immense consequences and most of all lag behind.

Technology has not just modified how companies do business, but also how they plan and hold their events with the invention of the iPad. The use of this device has taken businesses a notch higher to a whole new level of doing business and has become one of the serious tools for conducting business. Analysts now say that the sale of tablets will overtake that of laptops and PC’s. Because this gadget is expensive and might not be affordable to some businesses, iPad rental services are accessible in Singapore and other parts of the globe. The iPad comes with different features and business applications that helps make business events a real success.

iPads feature a long battery life, compact design and lightweight style, sleek profile, touch screen, a built-in Wi-Fi connection, built in speakers, razor sharp display and an intuitive interface, in addition to a range of business applications. The iPad can be used in a business event in various ways. It can engage prospective customers, business employees and guests at an event through sales presentations, training of employees, and strategic planning of the event or demonstration of a new product the company is introducing. Companies can access their CRM system or even send out copious notes through the use of this gadget.

The device can also be used to market the company during such events. One can easily gather email addresses with an application called the ‘Chimpadeedoo’ and send out promotional information. Making presentations has been made easier through the use of the keynote application which is the equivalent of PowerPoint. You can easily create, open or edit a file in your iPad using this app and save it on email for future reference. Customer service can also be easily done using an iPad. This is because one can collect information about their customers and communicate with them anytime. There are simply numerous ways to integrate the iPad into your business, given the dozens of applications readily available. Why not rent an iPad for your next business event?

At the check-in table, a range of iPads can be used to showcase the business’s milestones worth noting. The PopBooth app can be used to allow for an interactive experience during the event with guests sharing photos through the social media platforms using the ‘party mode’ menu or even order for the traditional printed photos without having to lose them; the iPad is passed around amongst guests to enable this. The password protected UStream and Face Time can allow those not in attendances to follow the event from wherever they are across the globe through the internet. A social media lounge can also be set up through the iPad and guests allowed to leave video messages through the 'Thrilled for You' app designed for digital signage.
