Go beyond the traditional keyboard! Your software programs probably contain hundreds of shortcuts that you don’t use; either because they force unnecessary hesitation, or produce more errors than they expedite. Yet you intuitively know: if you could memorize them and make use of them, your speed, accuracy, and efficiency could really be maximized.
The shortcut problem remains:
- Users interrupt their workflow because they stumble over all but the most frequently-used keystroke combinations.
- Most shortcuts are difficult to remember, and are therefore entered incorrectly, resulting in the necessity to undo and correct errors, and causing frustration, loss of time, and poor efficiency.
- Resorting to repetitive mouse commands can cause RSI and fatigue for the user.
Maybe you know someone who can access hundreds of shortcuts automatically. Seemingly without thinking, they just have an aptitude for it. The truth is, among software users -- especially those who use several different programs each day -- that person is the exception to the rule. Except for the most basic shortcuts, most people can neither remember all those shortcuts, nor move their fingers to the correct keys without hesitating.
So why would a software program build in shortcuts in the first place? Because the traditional keyboard just isn’t enough to cover all the commands that a computer user needs to access its tools. Dropdown navigation and mouse use -- necessary evils -- can be tedious and time consuming as the user works, especially when speed and accuracy are required.
Now imagine how you could improve your performance if you had access to the most irksome shortcuts in one keystroke.
Enter The Enterpad
Here’s where the Enterpad goes to work. Like an extension of the keyboard, it sits directly alongside your traditional keyboard and accomplishes what the traditional keyboard simply cannot. It bundles combinations of keystrokes (like Alt+S) into a single keystroke so that traditional keyboard shortcuts become a thing of the past.
We created the Enterpad with the power computer user in mind. A valuable tool that allows you to accomplish more, the Enterpad magnifies the power of your vital software and gives you instant rein over 120 of the most obscure existing shortcuts, or shortcuts that you create to meet your needs.
Your software is powerful. You may have spent thousands of dollars investing in programs that make your work shine. Speed, efficiency, and uninterrupted concentration -- could you work better by being able to access your most useful functions accurately and swiftly?
“I´ve been using my Enterpad for over a year and the product is extremely well-suited for the job of keystroke emulation in Flight Simulator. I use mine with Windows XP Home edition and the pad is totally compatible with all of the applications I have. The Pad saves an enormous amount of effort in FS and it makes “flying” very smooth. I no longer have to look away from my monitor to enter keystrokes. I´ve customized my key assignments and made my own pad templates in color using MS Word. The Pad is a USB device so there is no conflict with the computer or with the operating system.” —Frank Bass

Flexibility Increases Creativity, Opens Doors to Potential Solutions
The power computer user requires flexibility. No one wants to invest in equipment which lends itself to only one application or only one software program. And once you make a decision to purchase technology, you expect to be able to use it well into the future. Who knows what the next project requires, or what software upgrades you’ll need to purchase?
Designed for the Long Haul. Current Enterpad users, once they choose the shortcuts they need most and convert each to a single flash key, have an unlimited resource at their fingertips. Regardless of ever changing software requirements, the Enterpad will be the one tool they never have to replace.
Customized to your needs. When users customize the layout of the Enterpad keypad to their specifications, they gain proficiency at a surprisingly quick rate. For example, all your most common tasks could be clustered at the top, or the phrases you repeat most can be positioned in one corner. You decide – and then use your choice of the templates we provide to create an overlay that is color-coded and clear.
One simple download from a text file is all it takes to employ the Enterpad in your workload. And you can easily outfit identical keypads if you need more than one. Integration to your systems will be seamless and achievable within an hour or two.
Easily Reconfigurable. If your projects change – and you can bet they will – the Enterpad can be reconfigured with new commands. The Enterpad is permanent until you choose to change it. If you ever do need to reconfigure it, changes are quick and simple.
Versatile. Fingertip access to 120 functions is often all you’ll need to cover all the software programs you work with daily. You can create shortcuts for any software program all on one Enterpad keypad, and eliminate the most common user errors across the board. Consider the shortcuts which are universal in many programs (like Ctrl+S for saving a file). No matter which program you’re in, the save key on your Enterpad will always stay the same.
If a phrase needs repeating again and again, you can even specify a key for that, too. For text programs, often-used phrases, cumbersome technical terms, headers, and sign-offs can be achieved in one stroke.
“We had supervisors on our production floor that were entering data…and this was taking hours to perform. I implemented the keypads with a button for each machine, shift, downtime, and defect codes and cut things down by over 60 percent. These are still in production almost 5 years later.” —Bill Boyd, T G Missouri
