Top 3 Things to Consider When Choosing Tablet PC for Forklift Mount

Posted by Derek Oja on Wed, Jul 17, 2013

This blog post comes from Russ Martin, Southeast Regional Sales Manager here at MobileDemand. -- For more than 20 years, Forklift Mounted Computers, originally known as Vehicle Mounted Terminals (VMT), have been transforming the way products move throughout the supply chain.  Early implementations of these VMTs usually emulated traditional host-based terminal applications. Adding bar code scanning to the system greatly improved the timeliness and accuracy of the data in the system, allowing companies to be more attuned to their operational efficiencies.  As with most process improvements, these strides going forward did come with a step or two back. In the case of the Vehicle Mounted Computers, these back steps came in the form of power glitches, resulting in the terminal shutting down, or rebooting; usually resulting in the loss of critical data. These interruptions could cause a loss of productivity due to downtime that resulted while the user waited to log back on to the system to resume their duties.
