Summary Although mobile tablets such as iPads are being used by many managers, there has been a relative dearth of research on the managerial use of the mobile technology. This exploratory study aims toidentify and understand the factors influencing the use of mobile tablets by managers. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with a panel of seven managers who had incorporated mobile tablets into their work routine. The study has found that the mobile tablet is a suitable device for managerial tasks due to these nine main factors: non-routineness, collaborative nature, time-critical, informationcentric, mobility, user friendliness of the interface, reliability, connectivity, and autonomy. Thisexploratory study fills in the research gap and provides a basis to help managers establish a business case for or against mobile tablets adoption.
