One market that seems to be tailor-made for the Tablet PC is the real estate market. The ability to switch from paper documents to electronic would appear to me to be the perfect situation for Tablet PC adoption but I haven’t seen a single realtor using one. Anthony Iasi has just started a blog and in his initial post he briefly covers what switching from paper to the Tablet PC has done for his real estate work:
Many of my clients know that I’ve been involved for many years in the software industry. As a Realtor, I’m constantly applying technology to help my clients stay ahead in the home buying and selling process. One improvement that my clients seem to enjoy is the use of electronic documents. Rather than carrying a thick pile of contracts for my clients to sign, I use a small tablet PC and an electronic pen. Documents can be signed, executed, and e-mailed wirelessly or printed on the spot. You can get paperwork delivered to your home, office, or anywhere around the world! In effect, you can buy or sell a home from anywhere!
Any other realtors out there that are using a Tablet PC like Anthony? I’d love to hear from you.
