AUSTIN, Texas - October 12, 2016 - Xplore Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ: XPLR), manufacturer of the world’s broadest range of high-quality rugged tablet computers, today announced it has secured an order for its Motion by Xplore C5m rugged tablet computers from one of Western Australia’s leading aged–care providers, the Royal Australian Air Force Association (RAAFA). In addition to the C5m tablet platforms, RAAFA purchased Xplore desktop docking stations and other accessories to enhance productivity across its five aged-care facilities.
The investment in rugged mobile technology from Xplore enabled RAAFA to move their administration requirements from a traditional static ‘office’ location to a mobile ‘on-the-go’ system. By providing caregivers real-time access to patient records, they can now document conditions instantly at the point of care, whether this is at the patients’ bedsides, in the dining room, leisure area or any other location within RAAFA’s environment.
According to Craig Burkett, RAAFA CIO: “We have very strict standards to uphold, and Xplore provided the right technology solution and, just as importantly, the right installation. This system eases our administration load, improves accuracy and substantially increases productivity. Not only does it free staff to focus more on their core competencies in caregiving, it provides them with a sense of empowerment in the workplace doing what they were trained to do to the best of their abilities. Ultimately, this translates to better residential care and job satisfaction for our staff.”

Built for demanding mobile care patient environments that require robust enterprise software compatibility, the C5m rugged tablet leverages an Intel® Core™ i7 vPro™ processor to deliver class-leading speed with lower energy use and extended battery life. The C5m’s built-in 802.11ac Wi-Fi®, Bluetooth® 4.0 and 4G technology, along with multifactor authentication features and optional barcode scanner, make it easy to run EHR applications and send secure up-to-the-minute patient information to the entire care team without ever leaving the patient’s side. The MIL-STD-810G and IP54 rated tablet is also lightweight, spill resistant, drop tolerant and easily disinfected, so downtime is never an issue. That means more time spent on patient care versus device care.
