Benefits of Rugged Computing for Shipping & Receiving

Rugged Tablet PC for Shipping and ReceivingRugged computers and ruggedized devices are tailor-made for shipping and receiving functions of any business. Before the advent of the rugged tablet PC, efficient shipping relied on careful tallies and handwritten invoices. Nothing could be changed once the trucks left their home base, and if someone made a mistake, it could be days or weeks before clients received their products. The same held true on the other end of the equation. A business waiting for a mission-critical delivery had to depend on their provider to ensure that it was on time. If the driver encountered delays along the way, he had no means of updating his status – or correcting errors on the road – without making calls and consulting the business’s central office.

Rugged tablet PCs changed all of that. A rugged computer with WWAN connectivity provides instant access to databases and information that can be updated remotely to account for any changes in the status of the shipment.  Additional accessories such as bar code scanners allow supervisors to double-check shipments en route, and correct potential oversights before they reach the customer. Updates can be sent remotely to a ruggedized tablet PC to alter the specifics of a given shipment; no longer are businesses forced to wait until the shipment arrives at its destination to make corrections. And the use of ruggedized tablets creates virtual records that eliminate the need for paper: cutting costs, increasing clarity and improving efficiency.

Perhaps most importantly, rugged computers are built tough. Their outer shell protects them from unforeseen accidents, and the internal components can withstand heat, cold and other harsh conditions. Drivers and supervisors can take them into virtually any environment with the expectation that they will function at the highest level. Ruggedized tablets from MobileDemand meet military-grade standards, and serve as an invaluable resource for shipping and receiving services throughout the country.
