The Saskatchewan Cabinet and their iPads in Action

by on November 14th, 2010

In late September, we wrote about the Saskatchewan government and how they decided to opt for iPads to help reduce paper and help the environment. Obviously spending $23,000 on iPads will not make taxpayers happy, but if you think about the long term benefits the iPads will pay for themselves. The reported savings would be from $8-9000/year.

The CBC posted an updated article with images of these iPads in action.

“This may be a small savings to taxpayers and a small achievement for the environment,” Wall said Wednesday. “But small achievements are important too, and so are small savings.

“Frankly, this technology is pretty easy to use,” Wall added. “And can be life-changing in terms of the number of binders we usually have in our lives.”

The Premier called the iPad “easy to use”, and I don’t doubt it. The simplicity of iOS has even 100 year old seniors using them.

The speech from the throne was also read off an iPad by Lieutenant Governor Gordon Barnhart on October 27th. Very cool. Pictures below:

Now, I wonder who has the best Fruit Ninja score out of these guys? ;)

What do you think? Waste of money or a step towards saving paper?

    This is an example of how the technology of the iPad can make education, government and business operations more efficient and environmentally friendly. We’ve all read stories over the past 6 months about car dealerships, hospitals, schools, governments and large or small business adopting the iPad for various functions which were either inefficient or wasteful (or both). We have two iPads in our household which were purchased the first day iPads became available in Canada. They are used every single day by my wife, our children and me. Sure competitors will emerge (just like for Smartphones) but that will only lead to better and more efficient products at a more competitive price for consumers. Tablets are here to stay and they will keep on getting better and more efficient and users will keep on finding more uses for this amazing product.
