Corpus Christi Agency Buys IPads To Go Paperless

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) - A Corpus Christi agency has spent more than $16,000 to buy its employees iPads as it attempts to go paperless.

The Regional Transportation Authority says it has bought 24 devices for board members and top administrators. CEO Scott Neeley tells the Corpus Christi Caller-Times the iPads will allow the agency to cut paper costs and staff time used to prepare thick packets for meetings.

Neeley says the cost of the iPads will be recovered quickly as the agency moves away from hand-delivering board packets, memos, presentations and other large documents. He says each iPad2 will include a Dropbox, a service that allows for wireless sharing of documents.

Each iPad costs $689. Users will have a $30 monthly data package and will be restricted from downloading apps, music and movies.
