Tablets increase productivity by providing workers access to applications and information wherever they need it. Rugged tablets provide the best of both worlds for your business: features of consumer devices your workers are accustomed to as well as enterprise-class functionality and durability. Unlike consumer-grade tablets, rugged tablets are designed to withstand tough commercial and industrial environments. They also provide you with options for device and application management and address security requirements your organization or industry regulations require.
How to Choose the Best Rugged Tablet for Your Business
When selecting a rugged tablet, you can narrow your choices by determining:
- The operating system your applications are designed for and narrow your search to rugged tablets that support it
- Whether your applications are terminal emulation, client-server or Web-based
- Compatibility with your enterprise resource planning (ERP), warehouse management system (WMS), inventory management, direct store delivery (DSD), or service applications
- Whether it will be used exclusively inside buildings or if workers will use it both inside and outside
- Whether it will connect via Wi-Fi or WAN
- The user’s job function and tablet features necessary to support it
