Virtual TimeClock on Windows Tablets

Running Virtual TimeClock in full screen mode, on a tablet computer, is a compelling idea for businesses. It’s a great solution where, budget, space, or mobility are important considerations.  

Although you cannot run Virtual TimeClock on your iPad or Android tablets today, you can use it on any tablet that has the full version of Microsoft Windows installed. There are many options available. ASUS, Dell, Lenovo, Microsoft, HP, and Toshiba have all started making tablets that run a full version of Windows 8 or 10.

The one rule for timeclock compatibility: Make sure your tablet is running the full version Microsoft Windows. There's a very limited 'Windows RT’ version that doesn’t support regular Windows programs like Virtual TimeClock.

You can easily find a compact tablet running the full version of Windows for under $200. We’ve even seen budget tablets under $100.

Things you may want to consider, in addition to price, are:
  • Screen Quality
  • Battery Life
  • Reputation of Supplier
  • Storage Options
