2 The use of consumer tablets in business
How do SOLUTIONS PROVIDERS embrace this trend and what value can we add?

3 Tablets Aren’t these just toys? ”We do not consider a tablet like an iPad to be of any concern. This technology will never compete in the Point-of-Sale market.” Director of Retail Store Services, IBM November 2010


5 Well not exactly.... Apple iPad A product that started it all…
1991 – Atari ST-PAD (never released) 1991 – AT&T EO Personal Communicator 1993 – Apple Newton 1996 – PALM 2000 – Microsoft ... All failed due to unresolved problems including weight, battery, and application issues

6 Adoption Phase Where are we at? The Chasm Innovators 2.5% Early
Adopters 13.5% Majority 34% Late Majority Laggards 16% The Chasm

7 What causes the CHASM? Looking into the rabbit hole

8 The very near future Where we need to be heading PROFIT EARLY MAJORITY
How do we get there Identify opportunities in the market and our products Take a brutally honest look at our solutions Work with strategic partners to resolve all issues. If there isn’t a partner then develop it yourself. Ignoring issues will not get us there. Be willing to spend more to establish yourself before the EARLY MAJORITY takes off. Do not choose price over quality. EVER EARLY MAJORITY PROFIT SLOPE OF ENLIGHTMENT

7 Low entry cost Wide acceptance Poor battery life – compared to enterprise level products Consumer applications on the device Subject to theft Not industry hardened – Otterbox / Lifeproof How do you process credit cards?

10 Let me hold that for you Securing the credit card reader is the key
Speed of service is impacted Why is it expensive for the merchant? #1 complaint for tablet based systems. Credit card swipe issues A 1 Often blame is placed on the POINT-OF-SALE Application 2 B Incorrect charges on customer’s statement 3 Cost of replacement for readers that fail C Additional charges for manual entry Example (assuming a 30% swipe issue) A restaurant will spend at a minimum of $ per year in additional processing fees for every million dollars processed. (1% for manual entry). 4 Damage to the tablet from readers that are not supported properly 5 Extremely expensive for the merchant

The use of the latest technologies including 3D renderings, 3D printing, and RAPID are used to expedite this process During this refinement phase the team will work to complete the product and address any opportunities that may have arisen during the design phase. Additional 3D printed models are produced based on these changes. VAULT currently has 4 production facilities and 2 powdercoating facilities. We are in the process of expanding our distribution facility into a new 40,000 sqft facility in North Carolina. We believe that this will allow us to deliver product in a shorter period of time.
