As tablets become more and more popular, many industries are finding ways to use them in demanding situations. However, it’s important to determine how employees will be using the devices before selecting a model. Different applications require different functions, and while one employee may be using a tablet to scan and sort inventory, another employee might be using it on the road or in high-stress conditions.
These tablets are designed to fill the role of any other tablet computer on the market, while also withstanding harsh conditions. The hardware is solid and guarded by protective casing both inside and out. From drops to temperature fluctuations and dirt, dust, and everything in between, the rugged tablet is made to last in every way possible.
Rugged tech offers more than just durability, however. With all the functions of a consumer-grade tablet and more, they are both useful in a variety of situations. Where laptops can be fragile and cumbersome, tablets are both lightweight and portable. For employees who need to move and travel unencumbered, a tablet computer is an ideal replacement to a computer or a smartphone.
For situations that require employees to be outside or on the field, the rugged tablets can keep up with them there, too. The screens are adjustable, and made to display a clear image no matter the conditions. Whether it is being used outside in a brightly-lit area or in a dark room, the screen display is designed to fit any situation.
Along with physical improvements, rugged tablets are also made to compete with expensive consumer-grade models as well. Apps are easy to install and use on a day-to-day basis, and the software makes them easy to repair. Custom applications and software improvements can even be designed and installed to improve on existing functions.
Made to be used in any kind of setting, from industrial to military, rugged tablets are outfitted to be multi-functional and durable. Extra functions such as RFID technology, secure connectivity, and even barcode scanners are available. While they are a more expensive option than most consumer-grade technology, they make more sense financially in hard-use situations.
Whether they’re being used on the field, in military scenarios, in warehouses, on the road, or even in retail or food service situations, rugged tablets combine technology, durability, and portability to improve both work experience and boost productivity.
