iPad at Work: Helping a North Carolina Town Go Paperless

Share This:


Cornelius, North Carolina – a suburb of Charlotte – is putting iPads to work to replace printed materials used at town meetings. The town’s commissioners are using new iPad 2s instead of printed meeting agendas that averaged 210 pages in size.

They’re using 16GB WiFi only models; they don’t need more storage as they’re mainly accessing materials held on a town server, presumably via an RDP or VNC app. They also use a specialist software package called NovusAgenda, to collect and maintain their meeting materials.

The commissioners are now able to pull up all their agenda documentation – including zoning maps, budget worksheets, and Powerpoint presentations – on the iPad.

The switchover to using iPads is expected to lead to major savings in print and copying and other associated costs.
