Rugged Warehouse Tablets: A Manager’s Best Friend

Rugged warehouse tablets help supervisors and managers keep their fingertips on all the data and the pulse of activities in a warehouse environment. Secure, reliable, and able to survive the harshest of conditions, mobile tablets act as a source of essential information, help motivate the exchange of ideas with workers, and can be your best friend in a critical situation.

Get Unshackled With Rugged Warehouse Tablets

If you are a supervisor or manager, you’re not only responsible for maintaining your systems’ upkeep and reducing downtime, but also keeping an eye on the labor force. On certain occasions, you prefer to have direct access to speak with your staff in person, on the warehouse floor. Without a tablet, you remain chained to your desktop — where your computer is accessible, along with all your data. But what if you could have the best of both worlds — mobility and accessibility?

If You’ve Checked Out Consumer Grade Tablets In The Past

A few years back, you may have considered unshackling yourself from your desktop, but may have concluded that consumer-grade tablets weren’t powerful enough to drive the intensive processing demands of enterprise applications, nor rugged enough to withstand the possibility of getting dropped, knocked, or spilled on. You may also have been concerned about the prohibitive cost of enterprise-grade tablets, and the availability of logistics software and monitoring dashboards.

Time to Take A Look At Enterprise Rugged Warehouse Tablets

Today, enterprise tablets can be equipped with mission-critical enterprise-grade applications designed not only for managing inventory in a warehouse, but extensible enough for supervising the assembly of cars on a factory floor, or quarterbacking the maintenance of jets aboard an aircraft carrier. These tablets are reliable and offer the full-scale communications capability your team needs to connect to a corporate or military database — anytime and anywhere. And, during the last several years, the price point of enterprise tablets has dropped dramatically.

Additional Benefits Of Using Rugged Warehouse Tablets

Everyone on the business performance side of the equation expects you to do more with less. Rugged tablets provide productivity-boosting and real-time visibility into all your resources, with a minimal impact on hard asset costs.

Picture the advantages of pulling up real-time efficiency information at any location on the warehouse floor, examining a dashboard while sharing it with your staff, and discussing the issues and proposed solutions with your team. Then consider the other benefits:

Business Productivity Boost: By harnessing the power of mobile technology, you can increase your productivity and gain a competitive edge. With greater functionality and more productivity, the long-term cost savings can be considerable.

Versatility and Access: Interfaces easily with both enterprise and mobile applications. Managers and supervisors can rely on tablets to give everyone on their team instant access to the information they need, when and where they need it.

ERP Integration: Offers access to a host of enterprise resource planning software tools such as Manhattan Associates, SAP, and other high-level business process management tools.

Real Time Dashboards: Get all the business critical metrics you need to stay on top of everything. Dashboards are now part of most warehouse management software solutions.

Accessories: Using a traditional scanner is often not practical. But having the ability to attach one to your rugged tablet provides more flexibility and increased productivity. For example, consider equipping warehouse staff with scanners, configured with specialized applications, to quickly pinpoint the materials they need.

Fluid Communication: Enable your crews to communicate with each other, in-office departments, and with other facilities in your network. With your help, warehouse crews can monitor equipment function and receive alerts to impending malfunctions and rectify issues before they become problems.

Get the Results You Need

There’s an almost endless stream of equipment and applications that purport to improve mobile productivity and profitability. But how does one make the right choice? Only through the careful selection and strategic implementation, can you be guaranteed to get the results you need.
