Tablets for every industry: How Zebra Technologies is meeting business needs
Tablets have become vital in many industries, serving as versatile tools that can aid productivity and enhance the overall efficiency of various operations. However, it is important to recognise that different verticals have distinct needs and requirements that call for specific types of tablets.
The importance of choosing the right tablet for your industry
In the transportation and logistics industry, for instance, rugged and durable tablets are necessary to withstand the humps and bumps that drivers and delivery personnel often encounter. These tablets should have features such as waterproofing, shock resistance, and long battery life. Additionally, they should have GPS capabilities and software that can help with route optimisation and real-time tracking of deliveries.
On the other hand, in the warehouse industry, tablets should be ingress protection (IP) rated to withstand dust and water. They should also have barcode scanners as options and be able to connect to Wi-Fi networks for accurate inventory management. These tablets should be able to withstand accidental drops and have long battery life since workers may spend hours on their feet without the opportunity to charge their devices.
In retail, tablets can be used to serve as mobile or on-demand hybrid point-of-sale (POS) systems, instantly creating an on-demand complete POS anywhere in the store for queue busting to improve customer satisfaction. These tablets should have large, responsive touch screens to provide an intuitive, user-friendly experience. They should also be lightweight and portable to allow easy store mobility.
In the healthcare industry, tablets should be designed with hygiene in mind. They should be easy to clean and disinfect since they are often used in medical settings where infection control is critical. These tablets should also have dedicated scanners to scan 1D/2D barcodes in practically any condition to ensure positive patient identification. An added advantage would be to have a programmable button that can be used to activate an app or first responder in the event of a medical emergency.
In the government sector, tablets should prioritise security features to protect sensitive information. Government workers may handle classified documents and data, so the tablets they use must have strong encryption capabilities, password protection, and other security features that prevent unauthorised access.
