Rugged mobile computers deployed to warehouses, DCs and other transportation and distribution environments are often not used as long as expected, and as result cost the organization more than expected.
Extending service life increases the value of mobile computers. When life cycles go down, so does the return on investment, and the total cost of ownership (TCO) goes up.
Organizations have a tremendous amount of control over costs; they have more control over mobile computer life cycles than they realize. Future proofing mobile devices to support future requirements and fulfill their full life cycles is relatively easy-- without building in excess cost.
This white paper explains how the features and options available for ruggedized mobile computers used in warehousing and distribution can extend the time they can perform in warehouses and distribution centers. It also provides guidance on how to make decisions that will protect your investments by meeting user needs today and into the future.
