Tablet working as a dual monitor
Just a bit of background first, being in Audit I use a LOT of paper. Every document must be verified, marked up & signed in green pen. A lot of the work has to be scanned into the computer from source documents, printed, worked on and then re-scanned when completed.
A tablet on its own is brilliant for dealing with this, as I dont need to print out everything and re-scan it. Also, a tablet can help me get work done on the run. But what about when i'm sitting at my desk using my XPS? It is far more powerful than a tablet and works much faster. So why not integrate the tablet to work as a dual monitor? I could then be viewing multiple documents on one screen and marking up another on the tablet. Much better than working with stacks of paper OR trying to open and navigate through all the documents on the tablet.
A lot of accounting/audit firms are looking at going paperless, the only real secure way to do this AND to see that documents are being marked up is using tablets. If tablets could be used on the run AND as an effective dual monitor with touch input it would revolutionize any office environment.
