With Microsoft offering Windows 10 for free as an upgrade from Windows 7 and 8, it's no surprise that many have jumped at the chance to see what Microsoft's latest operating system has to offer. In fact, only a day after its July 29th release, the company counted 14 million installs, which skyrocketed to 75 million less than a month after that. At the "Windows 10 devices" event last week (October 6th), Microsoft's Terry Myerson provided a brief update, announcing that figure has now reached a whopping 110 million installs. That's quite the number, especially considering Windows 10 has only been out for around 11 weeks.Read More

(From Modern Materials Handling and Contributing Editor Bridget McCrea): The area that lies outside of the four walls of the warehouse and distribution center (DC) is a place where drivers are busy delivering customer orders; vehicles are staged in the yard and then filled or emptied at the dock door; and where that “last mile” to a customer location is bridged in the most efficient manner possible.
It’s also an area where increasing regulatory burdens, capacity crunches, and driver shortages can quickly take their toll on a company’s bottom line. Add trends like omni-channel, the Internet of Things (IoT), and a growing focus on global business to that mix and the scenario outside the four walls becomes even more daunting.
It’s this growing complexity in transportation management that’s driving more logistics operations to explore their mobile options. Whether they want to monitor their assets and human resources, more efficiently route and schedule their trucks, or enhance the service levels provided by their customer-facing employees, shippers are turning to mobile tools to help achieve these and other goals.
“The area outside the four walls is a place where we’re seeing significant levels of adoption, especially among mid-market organizations that want to mobilize their workflows and operations for the first time,” says David Krebs, president of enterprise mobility and connected devices at VDC Research.
In assessing the trend further, Krebs says that the solutions and use cases vary considerably and include pickup and delivery applications in the courier/postal market, direct store delivery (DSD), pre-sales and merchandising applications in the consumer packaged goods (CPG) segment, and both long-haul and LTL trucking solutions.
