iPad integration consultation

A functional, digital, multipurpose kitchen tool

Julia, You’re getting an iPad!

Here’s the plan

 

This proposal conists of two sets of iPads and equipment. Some equipment will be used with both models, so that they’re interchangable.

It’s recommended that the fresh feast purchase both iPads and all equipment listed. This will allow the kitchen and office/ field locations to communicate and use the tools at all times.

All of these figures and information is accurate as of Monday, August 18th, 2014.

 

Kitchen Ipad

Full Size

Wall Mounted

Waterproof, Shockproof, Dirt & Ice

This iPad is recommended mainly for in-house use and is therefore configured without a cellular plan. It stays in-house, so it’ll always be on wifi. The larger screen size is better for the kitchen, it’s more usable and readable. We will include recommendations for cases, wall mounting, cables for docking, audio and charging.

iPad Air with Retina Display

This ipad is full-sized, with a retina screen size  @ 9.7″

iPad Air (Retina) 32gb

Configuration Recomendations & Explanations

 

Antenna: Wi-Fi only

We choose wifi only to avoid a long term cellular contract. If the cellular model is chosen, a data plan will be required. Wifi and cellular ipads are interchangeable in terms of cases and other equipment.

Storage Size: 32gb

32gb is a comfortable storage size, though more is always preferable if budget allows. The more internal storage you can afford the better, but the price increases about $100 per storage increase.

Price: $599

There are too many pricing options to list them all here. To view the full comparison table, visit this link: http://goo.gl/vBVJUz

iPad Air Accessories

It is recommended that the following equipment be purchased along with this iPad.

Lifeproof iPad Air Case

This case is expensive for a reason. There isn’t a better option. At $129, it’ll be able to protect your ipad from drops, spills, scratches etc. You can take it underwater and hit it with a hammer.

Price: $109.18

Vendor: Amazon

Wall Mounting Cradle

This cradle fits the lifeproof case perfectly, and will allow the ipad to be mounted to the wall securely. The cradle will be securely mounted to the wall with screws. The iPad clips into this cradle, and can be easily removed.

Price: $38.19

Vendor: Amazon

Articulating Mounting Arm

This wall mount will allow the ipad to be articulated out from the wall at various angles and distances. This mounting arm will be bolted securely to the wall, and the cradle will be mounted to it.

Price: $38.19

Vendor: Amazon

Stylus

These are bic pens with a stylus on the back. They can be used to write orders on paper, and for the ipad inside the case.

As long as people are careful with them they can last for a long time. The ink can even be replaced with tubes from cheaper bic pens.

The pens can also be tethered to the case, wall mount, or clipped elsewhere.

Price: $14.60 (3 stylus pens pack)

Vendor: Amazon

Cables for Audio to Stereo System

This cable is more than capable of delivering high quality audio output signals from the iPad to the stereo system. 25 feet of cable is plenty to reach from under the window, to above the beverage/ salad fridge. Extra cable is needed to keep it hidden, tucked out of the way. It’ll be attached in a way that it can be easily removed when needed.

Price: $13.79 (25 feet)

Vendor: Amazon/ monoprice

Cables for USB Power Extension

This cable extends the reach of the iPad’s charging cable. This extra length will allow the cable to be routed and hidden from view. It can be plugged into the computer or a power outlet.

Price: $7.28 (25 feet)

Vendor: Amazon

Additional Materials

This charge may fluctuate based on specific requirements. It includes things like cable ties, tape, hardware, heat shrink tubing etc. All of the materials we’ll use to mount the iPad and accessories.

Price: $20-30 (estimate)

Vendor: Contractor, Mike Barra

Office & Catering iPad

Portability

Notes, Recipes, Photos & Social Media

Waterproof, Shockproof, Dirt & Ice proof

This iPad is recommended mainly for use by management & catering staff. Whereas the other iPad remains in the kitchen at all times, this iPad migrates between the office and field locations. Although it has all of the same functionality as the larger ipad, it is smaller, and therefore portable and easily handheld. If a cellular data plan is needed, this would be the iPad to attach data to, although this comes at additional costs (see description below).

ipad mini

iPad Mini (wifi only)

This ipad is more compact, with a retina screen size  @ 7.9″

iPad Mini (Retina) 32gb

Configuration Recomendations & Explanations

Antenna: Wi-Fi only

If your cell phone has a data plan that allows tethering, or connection sharing, you may be able to get data to the ipad while you’re away from home/ office. However usually it’s possible to find a wifi network, this may not be a risk you’re willing to take.

I can’t recommend a cellular contract, because of the added monthly cost. However if this is something you can afford, it will greatly improve your abilities while away from home/ office.

Storage Size: 32gb

Same details as the other iPad. But it’s important to note that the two ipads should have the same storage capacity so that their data can sync correctly.

Price: $499 wifi/ $629 cellular (plus monthly data)

The lower price is because this model has a smaller screen, @ 7.9″. To view the full comparison and pricing table, visit this link: http://goo.gl/vBVJUz

iPad Mini Accessories

It is recommended that the following list of equipment be purchased along with this iPad.

Lifeproof iPad Mini Case

Price: $69.99

Vendor: Amazon

Wall Mounting Cradle

Same cradle details as above. This cradle is smaller, and only required if you plan on mounting the smaller iPad to a solid surface. It’s not recommended to mount this smaller iPad to the wall, because it’s not large enough for staff to utilize.

Price: $38.11

Vendor: Amazon
