Rugged Computing for the Material Handling Industry

Forklift Mounted Tablet
Amy Palka Owner & CEO

If you own or manage a warehouse, forklift fleet, or industrial site, you know how important reliable rugged devices and mounting equipment can be. Not all devices are fit to be used in such an environment, and as a manager or business owner, you must invest in products that can stand up to heavy everyday use. It can be tempting to purchase normal smart devices for your company, but with the right forklift computer on your side, you won’t have to worry about constant repairs and other issues that plague non-rugged devices. Affinity Enterprises offers a wide range of rugged computing and mounting products for your warehouse or industrial workplace.

Choose the Right Forklift Tablet or Computer

The right forklift mounted tablet can help your staff speed up operations. It can allow employees to seamlessly operate machinery since you can easily use it with one hand. Giving your employees tablets also allows them to perform a variety of tasks, such as updating inventory, with greater ease. By ensuring your employees all have access to the same information, you can minimize errors and make sure everyone is on the same page at all times.

When you choose the right computer, you won’t have to worry about forklift accidents as often. The right warehouse computer is ideal for drivers who shouldn’t have to worry about additional distractions while operating heavy equipment. Your employees are important, and when you take advantage of our mounted rugged computing products, you can rest well knowing you put their safety first.

Getac rugged mobile computers (tablets, laptops, and hybrids) have become a popular option for warehouse, yard, and port operators. Often replacing dedicated forklift-mounted computers, Getac devices offer a versatile combination of more powerful desktop application compatibility and handheld portability lacking in traditional forklift systems. Affinity works with both Getac and an extensive partner network to provide everything needed for a complete warehouse solution, including driver safety screen blanking software, device monitoring software, computer docks, forklift mounting hardware assemblies and accessories, DC/DC power supplies, cordless, long-range barcode scanners, keyboards, and other integrated handheld peripherals for data capture, inventory, and asset tracking.

Other Benefits of Mounted Rugged Devices

There are numerous benefits of using mounted rugged computing devices around the warehouse. Many of these benefits will be immediately noticeable to both you and your workers. Some of these benefits include:

  • Lower Repair Costs: If you break a normal smart device, it can be remarkably expensive to repair it. Sometimes, it may be impossible to repair. This means you will spend more money in the long-run if you keep having to replace your normal smart devices.
  • Durability: You could potentially utilize a case for your device, but in reality, all devices are not suitable for a warehouse or industrial environment.
  • Battery Power: When a device is deployed in an industrial or warehouse setting, it will almost always be heavily used. Most traditional smart devices cannot hold up to continuous use without excessive draining of their batteries.
  • Interferences: If you are allowing your employees to use their own smart devices during work hours, you are taking a huge risk. Not only will they be easily distracted by personal calls and texts, but their devices could easily break or sustain damage in such an environment.

When you purchase our products, you are making a wise investment in yourself, your company, and your employees.
