Barcode News: "iPads Provide More than Clipboards for Patient Care", By Debi Besmer, Managing Partner
According to a Manhattan Research survey, Apple™ iPad® use among doctors rose from 30 percent in 2010, to 62 percent in 2011, to 72 percent in 2012. The research showed that use will continue to rise as opportunities in hospitals increase, because it provides healthcare facilities with a consistent and reliable connection to drug and medicine information, patient databases, and electronic medical records (EMR).

Business Solutions: "My Book Recommendation: Good to Great" by Debi Besmer, Archelon Enclosures Managing Partner
January 16, 2014
Every once in a while I stumble upon a book that applies not only to my professional life, but to my personal life as well. The book Good to Great definitely caught my attention. So many of us are time-poverty struck, and if we performing at “good” levels, we feel accomplished. The word “good” is just that — it’s good. Nobody necessarily feels bad when they are told they did a good job that they have a good kid or they have a good product. But if you are told you did a great job or you have a great kid or a great product, it definitely takes the emotion to the next level. If you get the chance to read “Good to Great,” I highly recommend it.

The ULTIMATE solution for securing the iPad® in Public Places
SAN DIEGO, CA, AT WILL – Since being introduced in the Fall of 2010, the Archelon, a secure enclosure for the iPad has captured the interest of the hospitality and travel industries as a means of providing secure technology solutions to customers in public spaces. Archelon has become the perfect partner for industry leaders who are embracing technology with the intent of adding significant and meaningful enhancement of the guest experience.
This innovative product was created at the request of a convention hotel in the greater San Diego area wanting to place iPads throughout their restaurant and lounge outlets as well as public spaces. And voila! The Archelon was born… a sleek, sexy, secure enclosure for the iPad allowing it to be placed in public spaces protecting it from theft or damage. It's this type of technology that helps businesses define a competitive position in the marketplace.
The Archelon is a patent-pending, secure enclosure that allows the creative genius of entrepreneurial and innovative operators to invent or reinvent their position in the market. "It is clear that iPad technology has fueled a universal business think-tank that is unprecedented. The uses being created transcend the initial concept that iPads were mainly for personal use." stated Debi Besmer, Managing Partner of Archelon Enclosures.
For the hospitality/travel industry and restaurant visionaries who want to lead their industry, especially in today's technology-driven world, the USA-made Archelon enclosure is the solution for securing the iPad in a hotel or restaurant environment, no matter how technology advances. The Archelon's tri-axial swivel joint allows movement in three planes. Users can turn the tablet to have a horizontal or vertical display, move from side-to-side and tilt up or down creating a variety of easy to use angles. Tamperproof security fasteners prevent removal with ordinary screwdrivers or other tools.
The Archelon can be wall-mounted or secured to a flat surface, allowing for both standing and seated installations.
In addition, the Archelon can be adapted in any arena in the world of hotels, restaurants, cocktail lounges, travel and business, including: airport, bus, train terminals, cruise lines, stadiums, golf courses, office building lobbies – wherever people want to stay connected, the Archelon can help various industries provide for a secure tablet deployment. "What a great time to be in this industry!" adds Karima Zaki, Managing Partner for Archelon. 'Every day we get calls with ever more creative ideas of how to integrate this technology into awesome ways to enhance the guest experience. The best part of this all is that the clear winner of the jackpot is the guest or traveler, who gets to enjoy these innovations to make life on the go just a bit simpler, a bit easier, or a bit more convenient. Those in our industry who get it right are sure to make guest loyalty a 'slamdunk'!"
"The Archelon (pronounced Ark-e-lon) enclosure is named for the prehistoric Archelon sea turtle, the largest ever documented. Lacking a solid shell, it relied on a strong, but light skeletal framework that protected without limiting performance," said Besmer. "Much in the same way, the tough, but open framework of the Archelon enclosure allows for secure protection without detracting from the computer tablet's modern and sleek design as well as complimenting any décor."
