Mobile computers come in all shapes and sizes. They can be handheld, wearable, drone-mounted, or vehicle-mounted. They also optimize daily operations for the commercial, logistical, manufacturing, and healthcare industries. Designated mobile computers are generally more robust and purpose-built than a standard smartphone. They scan barcodes and stay in communication with your team while on the job. They keep track of everything from parcels to medications, or take photos or videos for record on your ERP software.
Mobile computers cost as much or more than a smartphone, and owners usually purchase a fleet. Their use allows for great increases in efficiency, overcoming the cost of ownership quickly. Because of this, mobile computers have become a critical investment that are essential to any organization with a mobile workforce.
Whether your organization already utilizes mobile computing, or you are just researching the idea, it is important to consider the effects should these assets be damaged or broken. If a device breaks, it cannot work, and you will experience downtime. Additionally, the cost of ownership of the broken device will be higher than its unbroken counterparts because it saw a shorter service life, and now must be repaired or replaced. A damaged device will not be worth as much when it is time to trade it in.
