What You Need to Know About the Next Generation of Tablets, Handhelds, and Laptops for Field Service Applications: Nearly every field service organization has equipped its mobile workers with rugged tablets for over 20 years – long before the idea of the first iPad launched. However, the expanded computing capabilities of handheld devices, along with the shrinking size and weight of clamshell-style mobile computers, are leading many organizations to re-evaluate which mobile device form factor is really right for their different types of mobile workers, and the many different jobs they complete every day.
Consumer tablets can't withstand the impact of falls or accidental drops that are a risk in the field. Even if the screen stays intact, that doesn't mean the interior components are drop resistant, especially by military 810G standards. That's why Xplore drop tests each of its ruggedized tablet PCs during the research and engineering phases using MIL-STD-810G drop test standards. That’s a total of 26 drops on all faces, edges, and corners of the tablet.
How to Assemble a Future-Proof Mobile Solution for Your Manufacturing Environment.
Like three-quarters of your peers, you’re probably using, or plan to use, mobile technology to boost the performance of your manufacturing and supply chain processes. Join Xplore and Barcoding, Inc. for an in-depth conversation with Industrial Distribution Editor Mike Hockett about the challenges of assembling a workable mobility solution that meets “best-in-class” standards. You’ll walk away knowing how to select devices and software that are compatible with your back-office IT architecture, your shop floor machines and your budget.
Buying mobile technology for use in a professional work environment is very different from buying a device for personal use. Sifting through the multitude of mobile device variations is far from simple, as you’ve probably realized by now. The good news is that it’s not impossible. Join us for a 45-minute “coffee break” Q&A session with Group Mobile president Darin White, Xplore Marketing VP John Graff, and Field Technologies Online editor Sarah Nicastro.
Walk away with a simple 10-step action plan that will help you “shop smarter” for mobile technologies based on your business case (and easily secure executive buy-in for your entire mobility project).
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”.
In this on-demand webinar, Tom Kost, Product Marketing Manager at Xplore Technologies, and Bob Ashenbrenner, President, Durable Mobility Technologies, LLC, will help you navigate the factors that define mobile PC hardware pricing and the actual cost of ownership for the total mobile solution. They'll also help you balance the pros and cons of various mobile PC form factors and feature sets against the price of maintaining device/data protection and performance.
In the recorded webinar presentation, learn about the features, specifications, accessories and usage applications of the Motion F5m / C5m Tablet PC Platform.
Despite the proliferation and use of Tablets across a variety of businesses, field workforces are still carrying a lot of paper to capture data. Tablets are being used primarily for email, web browsing and data review. However, using Tablets to replace paper-based data capture in the field means organizations conduct more inspections or visits in shorter timeframes; save on mailing, data-entry costs and errors made in transcription; get real-time information to and from the field for reporting and analysis; and provide quicker services and responses to customers, leading to more revenue.
