Field staff need tools, software, and rugged mobility meeting requirements not only for job tasks but also for rigorous environments. Rugged tablets are ideal for utility management, city fleet vehicle maintenance, parks management, and other government management applications.
State, city and county services as well as public works, utilities, and transportation all can benefit from rugged tablets that deliver an optimal mobile experience with powerful computing and communications, ongoing operation, easy to read screens, and accessories that allow them to go from office to vehicle to onsite locations easily and functionally.
It’s time to embrace everything that mobile tech offers to field operations, and the public sector can benefit in many ways by getting on board sooner rather than later.
Rugged tablets deliver a fundamental, adaptive, and obsolescence-resistant mobile computing platform. They provide a long-term investment protection for government agency initiatives, with a lower CAPEX and higher ROI than any other mobile computing solution, as well as long term use and easy integration with existing systems.
Field staff can access what they need in any location, collecting data and collating reports for a fast, cost effective way to manage projects. This can minimize costs and losses associated with false starts, lapses in oversight, cost overruns, repeated delays, or any of the many obstacles which can be posed by aging infrastructure. They can also help build out city projects, allowing “smart” functionality to be built in from day one.
With a rugged tablet, you get multiple functionality in one device. Instead of field workers being forced to carry a separate camera, barcode scanner, GPS device, mag stripe reader, and monitor, you have an all-in-one tablet built-to-order for specific needs. Additional options like vehicle mounts, battery charging stations for hot swappable batteries, keyboards, and digital pens make these tablets even more mobile and adaptable.
The latest in compatible software is implemented and each tablet built with an eye to reduce replacement costs. This built in longevity and durability lowers the total cost of ownership.
Security is also at a premium with these purpose built tablets. Sensitive data is safe in a closed network with wireless encryption that cannot be hacked through traditional wired access points. All of these features are reasons why federal, state, and municipal organizations should be outfitting their field teams with mobile, secure, and flexible rugged tablets.
