The latest mobile technology from Motion® makes working in the field, at the warehouse or with the patient easier, faster and more accurate than ever

Austin TX – October 8, 2013 – Motion Computing®, a leading global provider of rugged mobile technology built for business, today announced the expansion of its mobile technology platform. Motion® launched new image sharing & documentation software, an asset and inventory management UHF RFID reader*, workflow-enabling accessories and the latest generation of Motion F5 and C5-series Rugged Tablets.

“With this launch, Motion continues to fulfill the mission we set forth 12 years ago,” said Peter Poulin, vice president, marketing at Motion. “Provide the mobile workforce tools to complete their work easier, faster and more accurately. As we strive to deliver innovative technology, we never lose sight of our customers – the mobile workers. Their needs remain at the forefront of all our offerings.”

Motion’s new software, SNAPWORKS by Motion is an intuitive, touch-based camera application that provides mobile workers an easy way to capture, annotate and share images. The new EasyConnect RFID Long Range Reader transforms Motion Rugged Tablets into long range UHF RFID tag readers for obtaining and processing critical asset data from a distance - ideal for an oil rig, rail transportation or warehouse environment. And, the just released Multi-Bay Battery Charger accessory charges up to 5 batteries at the same time. The charger is ideal for multi-user work group that facilitates a team-based, pooled work environment.

In addition to the software, RFID reader and charger, Motion has released the latest generations of the F5 and C5-series Rugged Tablets. The Motion F5te and C5te offer uncompromising levels of power, security and manageability with integrated field tools that improve documentation and collaboration. Running Microsoft Windows®, the tablets are designed to optimize the performance of mobile workers across industries like utility, insurance, public safety, retail and healthcare. The convenience of touch navigation, accuracy of pen input, durability of Corning® Gorilla® Glass and visibility of View Anywhere® Display Durability provide functionality without the extra weight and price associated with traditional fully-rugged devices. Motion offers convenient options for enhanced mobility including tailored docking, mounting and charging solutions. Powerful Intel® Core™ i3 or i5 & i7 vPro™ options with Intel® Hyper-Threading technology provide higher performance. New features include 10-point touch panel with Windows 8 Pro support, SNAPWORKS by Motion, Multi-Bay Battery Charger and EasyConnect RFID Reader.

*The UHF RFID Reader will be available late Q4 2013.
