OPPORTUNITIES FOR TABLET THEFT

OPPORTUNITIES FOR TABLET THEFT
There isn’t a place I go that I do not bring my tablet. Since these things hit the market, I have not found a better, more efficient way to get my work done. I have the power of the Internet, a camera, video camera, word processor and so much more, on one tiny, transportable device. It has truly revolutionized the way we use personal computers. It is also revolutionizing entire swaths of business and industries. Take the medical field for example. Just a few years ago, doctors and nurses were charting completely by hand. Doctors would take notes on a tape recorder. There were services that a doctor could call and dictate his charting to and a skilled typist would record them for him. With the prevalence of tablets, those things are but a distant memory. One thing that has also risen from this rush of new technology is the growing trend of tablet theft, and the use of Alpha Thunder Tags to stop this trend. 
Walk into any hospital today and you will see almost every doctor, nurse and support staff carrying a tablet. Patient records are becoming more and more centralized, which makes it easier to treat the patient and more efficient for the hospital. With all that technology in place, what types of risks are there when looking at this from a risk/loss perspective? Plenty.
Some people are opportunistic thieves, meaning that given the right set of circumstances and the idea that they will get away with the crime, they will commit it. Most shoplifters see theft as a victimless crime, although there is much to be said on that, but I’ll leave that for another time. So what if a shoplifter breaks their arm and has to go to the hospital? What if they see an unattended tablet, left in the hallways by a naive nurse? Chances are, they will steal it. That is, unless your equipment is protected with an Alpha Thunder Tag. 
When combined with an N10 Antenna system, Thunder Tags can be a simple, effective and cost efficient solution to what could be a costly problem. Not only can a thief get their hands on a tablet, think of the confidential patient data that it most likely contains, and the resulting lawsuits that could arise, should you fail to protect this data. 
What are Alpha Thunder Tags?
These tags are well known in the retail industry. In fact, they are the standard in companies that want to protect their assets. These small tags can be directly attached a tablet. Think of them as the same as those little tags you see in almost every store. You couple these tags with the N10 antenna and what you have is a system that will just about eliminate the potential of tablet theft. 
The N10 antenna is smaller version of the towers you see when you walk into any retail store. If the alpha thunder tag passes through this gateway, an audible and visual alert sounds; meaning someone can not simply walk out with a tablet without being caught, just as someone can’t walk out of a retail store with merchandise without being caught. This can almost eliminate the possibility of tablet theft in your hospital. 
The biggest difference here is that the N10 antenna is incredibly small. In fact, once it is deployed, it is almost impossible to see, unless you are looking for it. These were designed for small convenience type stores, with space constraints in mind. 
Are they other solutions?
Of course there are, but why spend thousands of dollars when you can literally spend a tiny fraction of that using Alpha Thunder Tags? If they are good enough for some of the world’s leading retailers, why wouldn’t they be good for you? Tablet theft is an ever growing concern for hospitals and doctor’s offices nationwide, and I’ve seen a plethora of tactics used to combat it. So far, I’ve not seen a system as user friendly, easy to set up and maintain, and as cost effective as this one. Even the largest firms have budgets to maintain, and this solution allows you to do just that, all while protecting your equipment and your patients’ peace of mind.
