When lives depend on it, maritime ICT needs to be robust, fit for purpose and durable. There are no spare parts depots in the middle of the ocean and if your technology fails it can put your crew in danger.
Forklift trucks are the driving force behind effective warehouse logistics – and if you operate a forklift fleet, rugged onboard computers are an absolute necessity
Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things (IoT) are revolutionizing the way we do business. Automation, data exchange, smart factories, intelligent logistics, Cloud computing – it’s all part of the fourth industrial revolution. There are major gains to be made by embracing this new technological world – but it’s complex, dynamic and continually evolving. So how do you become a part of it?
Technology never stands still, and rugged technology is no exception to this. Rugged devices continue to evolve quickly and with each new innovation they become more effective and efficient for working in the most hostile of environments. New levels of functionality combined with a lower cost of ownership are making rugged computing not only more accessible but also more desirable.
There’s nothing worse than production grinding to halt because of a problem with your computer system. Finding a fix takes time and money – but the real cost is the resulting business disruption. Your operation might be held up for an hour or for a day. It will hit your bottom line and you could also lose customers as a result of the failure.

It’s the latest dilemma – do you need a rugged device, or would a consumer equivalent be the right choice? There are plenty of assumptions feeding into this decision.

It’s time to cut through the supposition and get to the facts.
