4 Benefits of Rugged Tablets

Why You Should Consider a Rugged Tablet

When you’re investing in the latest technology for your warehouse, you have many device options to choose from. Sometimes, it can be difficult to find the best fit. But if you’re needing a device that you can count on, look no further than a rugged tablet. They’re easy to use, warehouse-proofed and built for multitasking. When you choose a rugged tablet, you gain these four benefits.

Tested and Proven Ruggedness
A rugged environment calls for a rugged device. Designed to accompany your workers wherever they go, rugged tablets can withstand the harshest of environments. From the frigid cold storage rooms to a dusty environment, you can count on your devices to get the job done. 

Just how durable are these tablets? They’re designed to withstand bumps, drops, harsh environment – the list goes on. Let’s look at just how rugged these devices are using the Zebra L10 Rugged Tablet as an example. 

Built for the Busy
There’s a lot that goes on in your day-to-day work. You need a tablet that powers your operations, not one that simply keeps up. Rugged tablets rise to the occasion, with long-lasting battery power, battery hot-swap options, 15 connectors, and more. Plus, mix and match accessories to fit your worker’s needs for increased comfort and efficiency. Another unique feature is that you can use the touchscreen even if it is wet or when you’re wearing gloves. 

Rugged tablets are also easy to use. Designed with a sleek frame and familiarity of a consumer tablet, it is easy for your workforce to learn the ropes and remain productive. 

The Latest of Cutting-Edge Technology
Outdated technology can significantly slow down your operations, and in some cases, put your company at risk of a security breach. As the world moves more into the digital space, updated technology is critical. Rugged tablets have all the bells and whistles your workers need to stay productive and close security gaps.

– Lightning-fast Wi-Fi connections and 4G LTE
– The latest, most secure operating systems
– Large, vivid screens you can see even in direct sunlight 
– Faster, more accurate 1D and 2D barcode reading, regardless of condition
– 8-Core processing power 

Immediate ROI
On paper, rugged tablets are more expensive than a standard one due to their durability; however, you will find that rugged tablets are well worth the investment. For example, have you noticed that your standard tablets are breaking down often, causing you to pay repair or replacement fees? Now think about how much money you may have lost with downtime.  

Rugged tablets have an average lifespan of 3-5 years, but we have heard from our clients that theirs last even longer! This means that you won’t have to open your wallet as often to replace them. Not to mention that their rugged design means they won’t need as many repairs.
