I have an Iphone 4 and will change to an apple laptop soon. My most recent apple purchase was a refurbished Ipad 2 16 GB Wi Fi only.
I am a slaes rep. in the sporting goods field. I currently use excel spreed sheets for order writing. Some of these work flawlessly others not so much.
I have about a dozen manufactures I sell for and 3 of them have about 3,000 SKU's each. All totaled I have maybe 12,000. items ( or SKU's ) I sell.
I HOPE the Ipad can be used to make order writing whilst at the dealer/account faster.

I will make an appointment with an Apple business specialist next week when my Ipad arrives at my local store. I am looking at and considering any and all software options. Well acutually not ALL because I am 100% commision and NO exspense support so some software is cost prohibitive.

IF anyone uses thier Ipad in a similar fashion please let me know what you use.
Lastly if anyone has suggestions as to how to best accomplish this use please let me know.

Thank You
