I am a on the road sales Consultant for a blinds company in Melbourne. I travel to Customers homes to sell our products and i used to carry a big brief case around with me that would hold all my folders and books that have prices and photos and pics of our blinds to show the Customers.
Well what I did is I put all those books and prices and pics on my iPad and I had to go out and buy a smaller bag for my iPad and just 2 quote books because I saved so much room in my brief case that it was too big for my iPad.
I use Quick office hd for excel to do my sales reports and iBooks to hold my photos and product information and I use PDF reader to hold all my sales reports and other work related stuff.
I also use it as my every day diary and have all my appointments go straight to the ipad calendar I can now check my emails and stuff online while on the road and I don't have to wait till I get to the office or get home to check it.
Our office IT department had set us up with Citrix on my laptop but they are too lazy to set it up on my iPad , but I thought I can use Citrix from home and my iPad at work, but I just love the iPad that I hardly ever use my laptop now days..
