XSLATE R12 Rugged Tablets Exclusively Power North America's First Digital Incident Command, Fire Roster Solution
Fire chiefs and battalion commanders around the world cite communications breakdowns as the number one cause of accidents/incidents during response.

If you don’t have accountability dialed for one agency, then can become a problem very quickly when outside agencies enter the scene and the incident commander is unable to confirm who is on scene or the current location of those known to be on scene,” Morrison explained.
With a tablet-based solution such as the one BATT3 designed, all agencies have a way to quickly coordinate and track assets. And, since all three fire agencies in this Idaho county use the same ICx command board and Fire Roster system, they can immediately sync operations as needed to expedite their response.

Benefits of embracing mobile computing range from time and cost savings to enhanced dispatching and routing.
Survey Says: Intel® -Powered Rugged Tablets Still the Mobile PC of Choice, Despite Feature Expansions in Other Rugged Form Factors & an Increase in Business-Grade Tablet Competition
Xplore and Intel recently asked hundreds of mobile workers and mobile computer resellers worldwide: “Which Computer is Right for You (or Your Customers)?"
The results clearly show that 10-12” rugged tablets are still the best-suited PC form factor for mobile workers and preferred more by global companies than notebooks or handhelds. However, investments in rugged tablet solutions are no longer motivated solely by the 3-5 year reliability of their internal and external components.
Successful operations necessitate constant preparedness and situational awareness. Both are contingent on the availability and proper utilization of real-time data during dispatch, incident response, and investigations. All require a certain level of computer durability, connectivity, and true mobility. When your job is to keep crews safe while simultaneously protecting the people and interests of the communities you serve, your response should be driven by an Xplore rugged tablet solution inside and outside the vehicle.
