In the age of tablets and smartphones, PCs and laptops are being rapidly replaced in the home as well as in the workplace. More and more companies are making use of the portability and flexibility of tablets for day-to-day work, but is it something that workers really want?

A report by Forrester suggests that in many cases, workers would prefer a keyboard to a tablet. It’s not difficult to see why, as in nearly all cases typing anything substantial is preferable on a keyboard than on a tablet screen.

The survey of 1,000 workers across the US and Europe found that 62% of them who use a tablet would want a keyboard accessory, 35% want a convertible laptop, and 34% would rather use tablets when necessary and use computers for typing.

Fortunately for workers who need regular access to online fax, Sfax is available on both desktops and mobiles. Sfax for Mobile can be accessed from the App store on Apple devices, from Google Play on Android devices, and is available for both smartphones and tablets. Perfect for accessing faxes on the move, Sfax for mobile provides businesses with an easy and flexible faxing solution.

For those with an affinity for laptops and desktops, however, Sfax for Computers remains a powerful tool on both Windows machines and Macs.

The flexibility of Sfax on multiple devices allows for users to make the most of the service in whichever way they want. Keyboard preference or not, the influx of tablets into the workplace does not have to affect the way you work.
