Choosing the Right Computer for Forklift and Fleet Management

Date: October 18, 2020 4:00 PM

Improve operational efficiencies with Winmate's rugged vehicle-mounted computers engineered for in-vehicle applications

Introduction: Supply Chain and Logistics Automation Trends
Automation is a growing trend that is transforming operations in many industries. Supply chain and logistics are one of those industries that are the most susceptible to changes. The need for 24/7 real-time track and trace solutions from dispatch to delivery forces logistics companies to adopt new technologies and modernize facilities and equipment.
Forklift and Fleet Management Automation
It is calculated that forklift and fleet management automation increases productivity by 25%. Modern warehouse vehicles are equipped with RFID tags and readers to identify load, sensors to monitor speed, and detect load weight to optimize the warehouse operations' efficiency and flexibility. All the information about product location, placement, and order priority displays on a vehicle computer. This computer usually features Wi-Fi or 4G capabilities for real-time communications and data exchange. Technologies simplify warehouse management and speed up warehouse operations.
"Forklift and fleet management automation increases productivity by 25%"
  
Some Tips on Choosing the Right Computer for Forklift and Fleet Management
Here are several key factors to keep in mind when searching for a forklift or truck computer:
Ruggedness — The device must be rugged enough to handle any industrial environment from extreme cold to dry heat, potential drop, and intense vibration from the moving vehicle. Industrial-grade computers have a high IP rating indicating water and dust resistance, fanless thermal solution, and industrial-grade internal components to withstand harsh operating conditions.
Mounting solution — In the warehouse and supply chain environment, the ability to mount mobile devices and computers to forklifts, trucks, tuggers, and inventory pickers, is essential. Vehicle-mounted computers are compatible with various mount types, including RAM mount. They are designed with vehicle construction in mind; these computers support drill, no-drill, and external keyboard installation methods. The mounting solution for a vehicle must be able to withstand intense vibration and shock.
Ease of service and maintenance — When installing a computer to a forklift or truck, it is essential to consider repairs and the need for software updates. Vehicle-mounted computers with a filed-replaceable front panel are one of the solutions to speed up service time. If a screen is broken, which happens very often in the industrial environment, take off the front part and place a new one on a docking station. Modular design saves maintenance time.
Power supply from the forklift — Computers powered from a vehicle are subject to a power surge. Forklift computers must have wide range power input, DC-to-DC converters, and also power ignition control that delays power on the computer after the vehicle is on.
Driver’s safety and security —  Nothing should distract a forklift operator driving around warehouse facilities. Screen blanking is a function that automatically disables screens while the vehicle is moving. Also when the computer left idle the screen will automatically lock itself for security reasons.
Wireless connectivity — Vehicle mount computers should have wireless capabilities, such as built-in Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 4G/ LTE, and external antennas to increase the signal strength in remote locations for real-time communications and data transfer with no delay.
Ability to connect multiple peripherals — Barcode scanners, mobile printers, USB drives, external PC, and monitor, all of these peripherals need to be connected to forklift computers from time to time. Various input and output interfaces onboard open more possibilities of the usage scenarios of the vehicle computer.
User-friendly interface — The computer should come with a responsive touchscreen for the convenience of the operator. Either resistive or projected capacitive deepening on the usage scenario. Resistive is usually more resistant to scratches while the projected capacitive offers multitouch capabilities for more responsive applications.

Winmate FM10Q Series: A rugged vehicle-mounted computer for data collection in warehouse and logistics applications
Engineered to fit seamlessly into forklifts and other warehouse vehicles with its wide range of power input with power isolation, the Winmate FM10Q will help minimize errors, streamline inventory management, and improve operational efficiencies.

Winmate Enterprise-Grade Tablet Computers — Powerful, Rugged, Versatile

Date: September 21, 2020 4:00 PM

Winmate Enterprise-Grade Tablet Computers — Powerful, Rugged, Versatile
Mobile devices are holding up in the enterprise environment, but consumer-grade models are easily broken and unreliable to handle all-day fieldwork. Winmate offers rugged tablet computers engineered to withstand harsh work environments and delivers reliable performance with a variety of OS choices and data capture

The global tablet market has been growing over the last few years. Enterprises are rapidly adopting mobility solutions to improve business operations. With enterprise-grade tablets, workers stay connected all day long. They could access enterprise systems for updates and communicate across the network.
Yet, in harsh conditions like a warehouse, field services, or manufacturing facility, consumer devices may not be the best choice because they are too fragile for use in industrial environments where dust, rain, extreme cold, and outdoor work are expected. Drop that tablet on the ground several times a day, and it's either headed for repair or replacement — which means downtime and cost.Data security is another concern when using a consumer-grade tablet.When choosing the right device, organizations should consider the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and the long-term cost of tablets.
  
When many industries are adopting mobile devices for workforces, a critical decision is whether to choose rugged enterprise-grade hardware, or consumer-grade technology remains essential. When selecting the right device, organizations should consider the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and the long-term cost of tablets.

Some Tips on Choosing Enterprise-Grade Tablet
Choosing a tablet for enterprise use — Use a device that is designed for your work environment. When selecting the right solution, only compare specs that matter to you. Typically, for industrial applications, several features matter — IP rating, drop and vibration resistance, battery life longevity, and data capture capabilities. But do not be mislead by the numbers. For example, a higher IP rating does not necessarily mean that the device is better for performing tasks in your application. Generally, the higher is the score, the better the protection—the choice of protection level, IP65 or IP67, depends on the needs of your application.

Consider available accessories for your application —Accessories can add flexibility and utility to your tablet and handheld. Make sure you consider options like a charging dock, carry-case, stylus, and vehicle mount solution. Keep in mind the end-user application scenario. Think of whether this tablet will be installed in the vehicle and occasionally used for data collection, or the worker is going to carry the device around the site all day long. Then narrow down your choices by looking at available add-ons for the devices you are considering.

Think of how to manage tablets deployed in the field —Next, it is crucial to consider the maintenance plan for all the devices deployed within the organization. You can consider SOTIMobicontrol or any other mobile device management (MDM) solution that suits your business needs. Most MDM solutions allow managing the policies and features of data and apps, such as encryption, PIN enforcement, and remote wipe.IT should be aware of which MDM product supports its organization's fleet of tablets.

Fighting COVID-19 with Winmate M101P-ME Healthcare Tablet

Date: August 2, 2020 4:00 PM

The recent outbreak of coronavirus COVID-19 shows that not all the healthcare facilities are ready for such a massive pandemic. At the beginning of the epidemic, healthcare systems all over the world were overwhelmed. Not only healthcare personnel but also technical facilities were not ready. Healthcare grade tablet computers are proving to be an effective communication and data collection tool for those combating COVID-19 on the front line. The rugged application-focused healthcare grade tablet computers offer a new generation of convenience for healthcare professionals, help to collect and transfer data, check the diagnosis, and update patient information in real-time.
Patient Care
Portable computers designed for patient care have to be tough and rugged to withstand excessive cleaning and often drops. With mobile tablet computers, nurses can easily access patient information any time from any place. With wireless functions, nurses can also contact a doctor for advice, record, and share patient data in real-time. This improves efficiency and saves time for regular checkups.
​Emergency Services
Emergency ambulance services are always on duty—devices in ambulance services for patient monitoring and reporting, or route navigation. Usually, tablets switch between vehicle and fieldwork and require vehicle docking stations to allow devices to be powered from the car, provide additional interfaces, and just as a convenient mounting solution inside the moving vehicle.
