Why a rugged tablet pc is still a great idea for enterprise mobility


The advent of iPads and similar devices has created a surge of interest in putting technology int eh hands of mobile workers. Consumers everywhere can now use remote devices for all manner of tasks, from browsing the web to taking photos. The rapid proliferation of such devices and theircomparatively low cost – naturally leads consumers to wonder whether rugged tablet PCs and other ruggedized devices are the best option for field use.

Some facts.

While the initial purchase cost is more expensive, total cost of ownership for rugged tablet computers has been found to be much lower over the product’s lifetime. Ruggedized devices are designed for adverse conditions and have long battery life, meaning that they last much longer than consumer-grade products. They also prove more reliable, with fewer operating issues, less data loss and fewer repair costs over the years.

This has an impact on more than just the rugged tablet computer itself. For example, suppose a client in field service relies upon a consumer grade device and it breaks down. He then needs to travel back to the office to get a replacement, or have one sent out to him. That could mean traveling hundreds of miles, resulting in a lost day of work and subsequent delays. With rugged tablet PCs, those risks are reduced considerably.

In addition, our MobileDemand’s devices run on Windows OS: a well-established and reliable operating system perfectly suited to the needs of rugged PC users and also highly compatible with the majority of back office systems.

Consumer devices cannot currently perform seamless, built-in barcode scanning and similar functionality, and they raise questions about security and reliability of access. In order to compensate, these non-rugged devices often require third-party peripherals, eliminating the integrated effectiveness that the MobileDemand Tablet PC products already offer. Playing it cheap in the short-term isn’t a path to business success.

5 things to think about when choosing satnav for your enterprise mobility project 4/5

Satnav is everywhere but what should you think about when choosing a product to use in your Enterprise Mobility project. Here are some areas we consider critical:

4. Are the license deployment options flexible enough to meet your project needs?
Options around license deployment.



  • Device-based licensing that associates the license to a specific mobile computer.


  • SD Card-based licensing that associates the license to a specific SD Card. The SD Card method can be useful in remote deployments where activated SD cards can be sent to remote workers in the field.



  • Using device management tools such as Soti B2M or Wavelink can help you manage the application remotely.
