Top 3 Things to Consider When Choosing a Tablet to Forklift Mount

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.

Rugged Tablets Enhance NASCAR Pit Crew Performance

The Red Bull Racing Team was looking for a competitive advantage by adopting technology that was rugged enough to survive the grueling and hostile NASCAR racetrack environment. It also wanted to automate the collection and distribution of critical car performance and equipment data in real-time to speed up decision making at the track. Working with real-time data would let the team make quicker decisions that could affect the outcome of each race – when to call for a pit stop, tracking how much fuel goes in the tank, how the tires are wearing.
