Rugged Tablet PC maker recognized as leader and innovator in field.
Cedar Rapids, Iowa March 17, 2008 -- The Technology Association of Iowa last week named MobileDemand®, a Cedar Rapids-based rugged Tablet PC manufacturer, Technology Company of the Year. MobileDemand was recognized for its rapid growth, innovation and leadership in the field.
The awards presentation was part of the association's annual Prometheus Awards, Iowa's largest and most prestigious awards devoted to promoting and celebrating the innovation and high-tech excellence in Iowa.
Matt Miller, president of MobileDemand, accepted the award on behalf of his team, while demonstrating the Tablet PC's ruggedness by dropping it repeatedly to the stage floor and showing videos of the xTablet® going through car wash, getting dropped down a cliff and "bowled" down a street.
"It was pretty amazing to watch Matt drop the rugged tablet computer on stage without it sustaining any damage," said Leann Jacobson, president of the Technology Association of Iowa. "This was one of the many things that impressed us about MobileDemand. It is truly are an exceptional company that is putting Iowa's technology sector on the map, nationally and internationally."
"We are proud to have received this award from the Technology Association of Iowa," said Miller. "The recognition is a testament to the position MobileDemand holds in the Rugged Tablet PC market - where advanced technologies and unique feature offerings, combined with aggressive marketing, makes a winning proposition."
MobileDemand was founded by Matt Miller, a 15 year veteran of the mobile computing industry. With help from the Cedar Rapids Entrepreneurial Development Center, Miller launched the company with the xTablet T8400, a rugged Tablet PC initially designed to allow food and beverage wholesalers to increase overall efficiency of their sales and delivery operations and improve overall customer satisfaction.
The company has grown ever since, working with customers such as Anheuser-Busch, General Motors and Walt Disney World Parks & Resorts. MobileDemand is also continuing to expand into additional vertical markets, such as manufacturing, hospitality, agriculture, emergency services, field services and retail.
Just last month, Miller and his team introduced the xTablet T8700, a Tablet PC for mobile workforces that offers the unique combination of the industry's highest performance, extensive data collection capabilities, and military-rated ruggedness. Also, the device is one of the few in the industry capable of supporting Windows Vista.
