Mobile computing is not a single technology, but a comination of three components (handheld computing device, connecting technology, and a centralized information system), each with different platform considerations, costs and risks.
Successful implementation of mobile computing requires employing all of these components in the way that best suits the work and environment of the end users.
Mobile computing devices such as handheld terminals, wearable terminals, vehicle mount terminals and tablet computers help skilled workers use their time more efficiently.
"The greatest challenge for many organizations is to develop and maintain consistent and efficient internal processes."
For businesses with mobile workers, the most effective and profitable way to do this is through the use of mobile computing.
Mobile computing increases accuracy and efficiency by eliminating redundant data collection and data entry steps.
Wireless data networks provide real-time access to your data transactions, making your operations more efficient.
Wireless networking management systems can automatically detect problems and provide email alerts to LAN administrators.
Once you have wireless LAN infrastructure, you can use it to support other technologies, including voice-over-IP technology (VoIP) telephony and messaging.
With the automation that mobile computing solutions can provide, your organization’s skilled employees can use their time more effectively, rather than spending hours on tedious tasks such as data-entry and office operations.
No matter what your company’s challenges are, there is a mobile computing solution that will collect, process, and share the information you need.
