motorola-mc75a11Recent research conducted by VDC revealed some of the key decision criteria many businesses use when evaluating a mobile device. The following is snapshot of this study:

Mobile Device Requirements

  • Wireless Functionality 51%
  • Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) 45%
  • Device Weight and Ergonomics 29%
  • Operating System 29%
  • Level of Ruggedness 25%
  • Integrated I/O Options 21%
  • Integrated Voice and Data Capacity 20%

Enterprise Digital Assistants support these requirements and address the issues organizations have faced in the past when deploying consumer devices. As we discussed in our August 16th post, commercial devices have a much higher failure rate than rugged devices and can lead to increased downtime and lost productivity. With an EDA, you still receive a small form factor, but it packs a punch. EDAs feature:

  • Larger displays
  • Rugged design
  • Multiple keypad options
  • Long battery life
  • Real-time access to critical data in the field

Enterprise Digital Assistants are designed with mobile task workers in mind. With an EDA, you’ll have all the features you need to improve productivity and minimize downtime no matter where the job takes you.
