Mobile workforces require rugged devices that can put up with all day use no matter where the job takes them. But what are your options if your workers require a large display? The typical laptop isn’t built to withstand harsh environments and isn’t easy to transport when you’re constantly on-the-move. In our March 1st post we provided more information about REDFLY Mobile Companion, a way to provide your mobile field workers with a larger display while on-the-go —without having to rely on a device that isn’t built for extreme environments. Other options include rugged tablet PCs and rugged convertible notebooks.
Rugged tablet PCs boast large displays, sealed all-weather designs and are easy to carry. Some of these only weigh 3 lbs. yet feature displays as large as 10.4”. Convertible notebooks are also fully rugged and can quickly be converted from a notebook to a tablet PC for field work. With protection against water, dirt and dust, rugged tablets can withstand environmental factors that would severely damage a commercial grade PC.
These rugged devices are a great alternative if your field workers require a larger display and will ensure that they remain productive and on-the-go throughout the day.
