When staying connected can mean the difference between making life-and death decisions in real-time or in near-real-time, EHS leaders can rest assured that they can turn to rugged devices as the solution.
Do your employees need to stay connected to their Intelex platform and applications when they are working in high-risk environments where a standard device can be damaged easily? If so, we’ve got some great news for you!
Enter Rugged Devices by Zebra Technologies
Zebra Technologies, a pioneer in the rugged technology market, is making strides by addressing the connectivity issues that many business leaders currently face with their field workers. They produce intrinsically safe rugged mobile computers, which, due to their reinforced outer casings coupled with their robust built-in software intelligence, can withstand extreme conditions and can operate with minimum disruption. Examples of their mobile computers include: handheld, wearable and vehicle-mounted computers, tablets, mobility DNA apps and handheld RFID readers. To cater to the different mobile connectivity needs and IT infrastructure of various industries and organizations, these devices support both Windows® or Android™ operating systems.
How Rugged Mobile Devices are Enhancing Operations and Driving Real-Time Decisions in EHSQ
A true test of the value of this technology is to examine its direct business impact in the EHSQ space.
These devices are designed to intelligently connect field and front-line workers to their managers, assets and data–all to help them optimize workflows, enhance in-motion operations and make data-driven decisions. In high-risk environments, where flammable gasses, liquids, dust, and other hazardous substances are present, using durable devices becomes a must. What’s more—in many cases, field workers are not allowed or restricted in their use of consumer-grade smartphones, laptops and tablets in these types of environments (or in extreme conditions). By addressing these obstacles and eliminating these barriers, the use of these devices enables real-time data capture and decision-making to enhance business operations.
True Value = Satisfied Customers and Positive Outcomes
To date, many organizations in manufacturing, transportation and logistics, retail and ecommerce, the pubic sector, healthcare and hospitality have benefitted from the use of rugged technology.
Here are some positive results that Zebra’s rugged devices have brought to their customers:
- Boosted operations through the introduction of new applications
- Optimized their fleet performance
- Enhanced a real-time location system
While the impact that the use of rugged devices has had in optimizing EHSQ operations to date is more than evident, we look forward to seeing how this technology will continue to tackle connectivity-related challenges in the future.
