Ferrovalle is a railroad and intermodal operator that receives and delivers an average of 20,000 trains and more than 1,000,000 railcars per year. Services include switching, terminal switching, origin switching, intermodal operations and other services within 200 hectares (494.2 acres) in operative yards for Mexico’s three line-haul carriers.
They selected the Motion F5 by Xplore rugged tablet for many reasons. The F5 rugged tablet features a touchenabled View Anywhere® Display, a removable battery, and rugged pens for data capture while walking and working. Plus, the F5 can be easily carried throughout Ferrovalle’s terminal and intermodal facilities using the molded handle, shoulder strap or tablet back hand strap. It can also be securely mounted in the locomotives and cranes for around-the-clock access while workers are on the move. The F5 provides a truly mobile, and full computing, solution for every member of Ferrovalle’s workforce.
The Reading Fire Department handles a very high volume of fire and medical rescue calls on a daily basis and, as a result, needs an efficient way to manage the heavy data demands that come with incident reporting in real-time, while they are in the field.
“The F5m rugged tablet gave us anytime access to sensitive ePCR data with the right combination of internal and external safeguards,” Deputy Chief Hart explained. “We didn’t have to compromise on workflow software capabilities or data security, and we didn’t have to adjust our processes to accommodate hardware limitations as before. The F5m adapted to our operational environment.”
Bristol Township is a small, tight-knit community focused on creating a safe, clean, positive environment for its residents.To support that effort, the Bristol Township Police Department equips officers with rugged tablets to ensure their time is spent protecting the public — not in an office writing incident reports.
Now Officers use the large-screen, lightweight Xplore rugged tablets to write incident reports, log information and access the county’s dispatch system using a digital pen, attached keyboard or touch-screen. Because each of the department’s tablets includes built-in connectivity capabilities, officers have access to records management systems, software, and local and federal databases such as CJIS.
Have you ever felt like Goldilocks? Searching for the perfect mobile computer that is just the "right size" and built to work "just right" for you? Or that satisfies all of your workers' "tastes," supports your numerous workflows, integrates with your legacy business systems, and aligns with your future goals? Join us for a discussion with Intel's Alan Rose and Bob Ashenbrenner, President of Durable Mobility Technologies, LLC.
It’s nearly impossible for your mobile workforce to “get the job done” with piecemeal technologies. That’s why you can’t focus on buying the best products. Rather, you need to create the best (budget-friendly, scalable, future-proof) solution that won’t fail when IoT, Industry 4.0, or other emerging tech redefines your operating environment. And that’s just one reason why you need to work with a mobile “solution provider”.
Poundland is Europe’s largest single price discount retailer and winner of the 2013 Grocer Gold’s Discount Retailer of the Year Awards. It has 485 branches nationwide and serves 4.5 million customers every week.
In order to boost productivity and realize substantial cost savings, Poundland turned to Xplore partner Box Technologies to replace their legacy system with a mobile technology solution built around the Motion F5 by Xplore Tablet PC.
With an integrated camera, digitizer pen and barcode scanner, the Motion F5 by Xplore now does the job of the previous four separate pieces of hardware. Improved battery life has led to an increase in productivity as warehouse personnel use the tablet’s hot-swap battery feature to easily replace an existing battery with a charged battery. This all occurs on the warehouse floor while the Tablet is operating, with no need to shut down or standby.
There is no single mobility solution on the market today that can be applied broadly to fulfill public safety’s widely varying mobility computing requirements. Each agency and workflow requires a different level of processing power, storage capacity, safety and communications capability. Plus, devices used by police, fire and EMS face a combination of harsh conditions, unique data requirements, and uncompromising reliability and security demands that would quickly kill off typical corporate machines and consumer tablets. Here are the features to consider when choosing mobile computing devices for public safety. See the Public Safety Infographic for a quick reference of the features and functions you'll need to consider before you make your mobile computing investment.
“The patient is priority; the computer’s second,” explained Otsby. “Not only were we looking for an incredibly sturdy mobile solution, but one that could be easily disinfected to avoid cross-contamination. Not many laptops, notebooks, smartphones, or even tablets fit that description today, much less seven or eight years ago; but we weren’t in a position to compromise on our rugged or computing criteria.”
As soon as WATRS went live, the OEMS team immediately reduced the amount of time they spent recording incident response details. There’s was also an impressive improvement in the quality of data being entered into WATRS and a reduction in lost data. Otsby estimates that the Xplore ultra-rugged tablets still save about 40-50% of time previously spent recording and tracking data. Report retrieval times also decreased, eventually being sent to necessary parties immediately upon completion.
RuggedPCReview.com: Just a couple of months after Xplore Technologies introduced the XSlate B10 as an updated and much more powerful version of their Windows-based Bobcat tablet, the company used the same approach on the Android side: the new XSlate D10, announced late 2015, is an updated and seriously beefed up version of Xplore’s earlier RangerX. The only difference is that the XSlate D10 replaces the RangerX, whereas the XSlate B10 complements the Bobcat.
