Incident and Accident Reporting via Rugged Tablets with Windows

Posted by Derek Oja on Wed, Feb 04, 2015

When it is critical to share information gathered in the field, public sector professionals depend on rugged tablet computers to deliver information when and where it’s needed. Tablets, or more importantly in that industry, RUGGED tablets, are field-ready solutions that are compliant with current public sector specifications.

Mission-critical mobile computing puts the power of information at the responders’ fingertips and allows users to interact wirelessly with dispatch and other officers when needed. This improves efficiencies—quickly and accurately sharing information—both in the field and in the office. In addition, mobile users are able to generate and submit incident, supplement, field contact and accident reports. Wireless technology enables the reports to be submitted directly into the agency’s record management system, where they can immediately be accessed and searched upon, enhancing communication between dispatchers, law enforcement and firefighters.
