As a pharmaceutical sales representative, you need to optimise your chance of success by making the most of the little time you’re given with a potential client or lead. There are many ways you can maximise your chances of success as a sales rep and you can find out more here; However in this blog I’ll be introducing you to a few nifty Ipad accessories to not only make your life a little easier but also to further impress your sales leads and increase your chances of closing a deal.
The roll out of the iPad pro was welcomed into the business world with open arms. As Apple say ‘”Ipad pro is more capable, versatile and portable than anything that’s come before.” – a statement we couldn’t agree with more. The 9.7-inch iPad Pro display uses the same colour space as the digital cinema industry so presenting sales presentation and iDetails on this bad boy will take you to the next level. This perfectly brings me on to our accessory number 1.
1. Apple Pencil for iPad pro
What is it? – Well, it’s fairly simple, you’ll receive the pencil, lighting adaptor and an extra tip included in the price. The apple pencil is sensitive to pressure and tilt so you can easily vary line weight and it’s perfect for using the adobe creative suit or simply for navigation and note taking.
It’s safe to say the Apple pencil has incredible drawing power with zero latency.
You’re also able to lay your hand on the screen like resting on paper without it flicking out or jumping, which I think we can all agree is pretty awesome.
Charging it through your iPad is such a sleek technique and then having an adaptor to charge through lightning is pretty cool! Then their’s split screen capabilities as one review on the Apple site puts it “Using the split screen and being able to record ideas on notes whilst browsing is like having 2 iPad mini’s side by side and using them both.”
The coolest feature however for ‘techies’ is the pencil having a weight on one side. Opposite the weight is the apple logo with the pencil So, when you place the pencil down it rolls over with the heavy side down to ensure the branding is facing up. Now that’s impressive.
If you can afford to purchase an iPad pro or you’ve been supplied with one for work then I highly recommend spending just £79 to take your iPad game to the next level.
2. Plantronics Voyager Edge Bluetooth Headset
So simple, effortless and elegant without sticking out of the side of your head making you look a little strange.

3. Belkin Portable Tablet Stage Stand for iPad
As you know well presenting on the iPad is key to Pharmaceutical sale and it’s actually a very difficult skill even for the most experienced of sales reps. It’s not often someone can engage on a human to human level whilst trying to get them engaged with the presentation they are showing on a screen they are holding.
The Belkin portable tablet allows you to present in front of individuals or groups of people whilst being able to multitask at the same time.
Designed for easy travel, the Belkin Portable Tablet Stage stand works with the free Stage interactive whiteboard and document camera app to get even more out of your iPad. It’s great for presenting, reading, recording video, or surfing the web. And the lightweight, durable structure folds flat so you can take it anywhere.
