iPad Mounting Brackets for Hotels

Last week I  traveled to Monterey, California on business (yes it was a pleasure!)  I stayed in a very well-known, luxury hotel overlooking a gorgeous golf course. This hotel had many of the usual amenities: Room service, a huge spa-like marble bath, laundry service, cable TV, even free in-room WiFi.

Just add some iPads to this and I’m good.

This hotel was luxurious and comfortable and I enjoyed my (way too short) stay very much.

But…In my opinion, this hotel was lacking a very important feature: Convenience.

When I visited the lobby, or meeting rooms,  and even in my room, I wanted information and it wasn’t conveniently available in any one place.. I wanted to browse through services;  local Chamber of Commerce websites, schedule a business meeting or reserve a conference room, or even order room service…all without the need to ask, call or stand in line to be helped.  What I really wanted was an iPad available wherever possible with the hotel’s software running, allowing me to search, read, schedule or do whatever I needed with information the hotel can provide.

So here’s my system description and wish list for hotels worldwide:

iPad. No need to have it handheld or moved from place to place. Secure it in its own bracket in lobbies, in all rooms, in corridors, even by the elevators.  Why not?  Securing multiple iPads for guests’ use in the common areas of the hotel would be excellent!  Offer them in sitting areas, even in the hotel bars!  I’ll spend way more time (and money!)  if I have an iPad to play with. 

This is what I want accessible on the iPad: 
  • Hotel restaurants’ location, hours of operation and menu. Option for reservation if needed.
  • Room service information, menus and ordering option.
  • Hotel services information. Laundry, swimming pools, WiFi, golf, sauna…
  • Local area information, with links to Chamber of Commerce – Restaurants, taxi service, attractions, driving directions.
  • My guest specific information, rates, self checkout.
  • Request for late checkout, extra towels, pillows.
  • Rate my stay…Add a hotel review!

Much more information and detail can be added.  The list is endless!
Any hotel will benefit GREATLY by mounting iPads in secure and sleek brackets.  By tracking guests’ requests, and satisfaction,  it allows the hotel to offer impeccable customer service, virtually guaranteeing repeat bookings and 5-star reviews!

So, hotels worldwide, please listen!  Today millions of people are using iPads to do just about anything you can imagine. Give us more reasons to do what comes naturally to us all  – Give us iPads!  

Smile!

Who doesn’t want a beautiful smile?  It’s one of the first things people notice. Everyone also knows that getting (and keeping!)  that beautiful smile means spending time in the dentist’s office.

The professionals at a large Minnesota medical and dental group want their patients to spend as little time on the sign-in process as possible. So this state of the art facility has discovered a way to virtually eliminate waiting time by utilizing iPads to make this process happen quickly and efficiently.  Now patients are seen
almost immediately!

By now iPads are everywhere, and there’s nothing quite like them!  We don’t think twice when seeing them in corporate offices, medical and dental clinics, schools and even restaurants.

People love using iPads, and because people love them so much it means that they’re now doing more than ever – iPads are as common as toothbrushes it seems!

As patients enter these comfortable and personalized medical and dental offices, they see an iPad mounted securely at the front desk in its sleek and stylish bracket. 

By simply typing in their name,  the appointment time and the medical professional they are visiting pops up automatically. Once confirmed, all that information is electronically sent directly to the treatment room, where another iPad, mounted on the wall, alerts the staff to their arrival, allowing the dentist or doctor  to access each patient’s chart before treatment is started, then easily update all records post-treatment, immediately and efficiently.  This system saves time and further eliminates the need for files upon files stacked up on a desk!

Since this iPad is mounted to the wall with an angled Desk/Wall attachment,  the convenience of it is truly state of the art. The mounting brackets come in various colors and finishes, including sleek matte or gloss black, silver and bright-smile white.

Another innovative medical office is taking full advantage of everything the iPad has to offer. A large dental practice in Nevada mounts an iPad at their check-out desk where patients are encouraged to log in to their website and enter the Smile Gallery to read (and add their own!) testimonials of satisfied patients. Log on to their Facebook page, or Yelp and write a review, or share an experience.  This is a great way to bring new business to the practice, as well as involve current patients in the complete and positive experience!

These Board Certified Dental professionals have dedicated their careers to helping their patients achieve beautiful smiles, as well as creating a comfortable and positive atmosphere for every patient.

Visiting the dentist or doctor does not have to be a stressful occasion. The whole painless experience starts with the ease of signing-in or registering for your appointment on an iPad professionally mounted in its bracket,  and continues with comfortable and personalized dental and medical care.

That makes us smile…beautifully!
