As many business uses are learning to apply iPad's groundbreaking technology, use of the device "in the field" may represent one of the largest areas to benefit. Its portability, incredible power and usability are being tested in environmental, health and safety (EHS) auditing use by The Elm Consulting Group International, LLC.
"We use Apple technology as our company platform, so it only makes sense for us," said Lawrence Heim of Elm's Georgia operations. "In the 25 years each of us partners have been in the EHS field, there has never been anything that has the potential to be such a true game-changer. Our field trials are using apps already available for note taking, dictation, capturing handwriting and audio notes, importing and notating scanned documents. This allows us to integrate all of our notes into a single electronic file with bookmarks for immediate access to specifically needed sections. We thinkg this will improve efficiency in report writing and reduce the possibility of errors and omissions as well."
