As a Sales Rep on the go, some days it feels like your iPad is your right-hand man. It’s there to help you showcase products, take orders, write emails. It’s even your front seat DJ, providing jams for the ride as you navigate your way to your next appointment. Finding the right case for your iPad is essential to creating a seamless sales experience. We have handpicked five of the best iPad cases out there that almost seem like they were designed with sales reps in mind. Whether you’re looking for a case with storage to keep your business cards and documents organized, or a case that will keep your iPad safe no matter where you take it, we’ve got you covered. Pun intended.

Best iPad Cases for Sales Reps: Top 5

1. The Bear Motion Leather Shoulder Bag Case If you are looking for an iPad case that doubles as a briefcase, this is your best option. It has a roomy side pocket that provides lots of storage for your phone, charger, notepad, business cards, or a pack of chewing gum––the few essentials that will keep you prepared for each stop during the day. The case also has a fold-out stand, so you can easily show products to clients or place orders with your iPad in a kind of “display” mode. The ultra slim design also comes with an adjustable shoulder strap. It’s available for iPad 2, 3 and 4. 2. The Hi-Mobiler Portable Rotating Leather Stand If you’re not looking for storage and just want a slim case with a stand, this is the case for you––a durable hard case that keeps your iPad protected. The sturdy stand on the back swivels a full 360 degrees, allowing for maximum flexibility in any selling situation. If, for instance, you find yourself taking a lot of photos in the course of your sales appointments (whether you’re taking pictures of empty shelves for suggested reorders or capturing a retailer’s chosen product assortment at a trade show), this case will help you hold your iPad steady as you snap away. It also has a strap, which prevents strain on your hand if you’re holding your iPad for long periods of time, and it comes equipped with a cord tie to keep your data cable neatly tucked away and on hand at all times. This case is available for iPad 2, 3 & 4, as well as iPad Mini. 3. The Snugg Executive Smartcover The Executive Smartcover by Snugg is the middle ground between the Hi-Mobiler stand case, and the Bear Motion shoulder bag. This fold out case has several compartments for storage as well as card slots. There is also a nifty hidden internal pocket, so you can store personal documents that you don’t necessarily want your client to see when your case is open in front of them. The case is also equipped with a stand and a pen that is safe to use on the screen (great for signatures on order confirmations). Like the Hi-Mobiler case, this too has a strap for easy carrying. Snugg offers this case in a variety of colors and it fits iPad 2, 3, and 4. It’s also available for iPad Mini. 4. Belkin QODE Ultimate Keyboard Case Are you constantly writing notes or preparing documents on the go? If you are sick of tediously typing on your screen and ready to splurge on a quality keyboard case, this is the case for you. Belkin cases are sleek and multi-functional by design. This sturdy keyboard case is made of aluminum, so it’s super slim (only 6.4mm thick) and lightweight (weighing in at just over a 1lb). The keyboard connects wirelessly to your iPad via Bluetooth, and the battery offers 160 hours of battery life, so you won’t be stuck charging it all the time. For times when you need a keyboard, the case folds out and provides a magnetic stand for your screen for the flexibility of a laptop experience. For times when you don’t need to use the keyboard, it snaps flat against the back of the iPad, for easy handheld use. This slender and functional case is available for iPad 2, 3 and 4. 5. Moko Durable Hybrid Case   Do you find yourself tossing your iPad into your bag amongst water bottles, pens and gum wrappers? If you are rough on your devices and need a case that will take the brunt of it without looking clunky, this case does the trick. The Moko Durable Hybrid case has several layers, including a hard shell made of polycarbonate that snaps onto your iPad to keep it secure as well as a silicone outer layer that stretches around the hard shell and provides great impact and shock resistance. There is also a built-in screen guard that protects from scratches, dust, and even rain and water. The built-in foldable kickstand also provides the essential hands-free option. This case will keep your iPad safe no matter what you throw at it (or where you throw it), and it’s slim enough to still look sleek and professional. It comes in a range of colors, and fits the iPad 2, 3, and 4 as well as the iPad Mini. Do you already have an iPad case that’s making your job as a Sales Rep easier?
